Do people with lots of hair stay warmer than people without hair?

    Humans have hair on their heads and bodies as a result of an evolutionary process which was meant to keep us warm. Hair acts as an insulator, keeping heat in our bodies and protecting us from the cold. So yes, someone with a bald head would lose a significantly greater amount of heat than someone with a full head of hair, thus making them feel colder.

    I have rather long hair, and during the summer, I’m always tempted to cut it off. I remember the one year that I followed through with this plan, I could really tell the difference! All the extra hair seems to help keep me warm in the winter months, especially if I walk outside for just a few moments without a hat.
