Bats are not attracted to hair at all. They are attracted to food, and they do not eat hair or use it an any way. Bats fly around at night looking for insects, not for hair.

Why are bats attracted to your hair?

The idea that bats are attracted to and get stuck in hair is a common fear about bats and a common misconception. Bats use an ability called echolocate to determine obstacles in their path. This echolocate is so acute that a bat can manoeuvre within a millimetre of any object while flying. Although bats may occasionally fly very close to a person's face while hunting for insects, they do not get stuck in the hair and are not attracted to it.

Why is hair attracted to a comb?

Hair is attracted to a comb because of the buildup of static electricity on the comb and on the hair. This buildup occurs when you pass the comb through the hair, and can be reduced or eliminated by adding a little bit of water to the comb or to the hair. Depending on the material of the comb, either the comb will be positively charged and the hair negatively charged, or it could be the other way around. Since opposing charges attract each each, the hair then is attracted to the comb.
