    scalp hair

    Dear teachers,

    What does scalp hair mean in the following context?

    "A scalp hair grows about half an inch a month for two to four years. "

    Thanks

    Re: scalp hair

    Scalp hair is hair on the head, as opposed to hair elsewhere on the body.

    Re: scalp hair

    A dictionary would have told you that the scalp is the upper surface of the head. Instructions on shampoo bottles often say things like 'Apply to wet hair, and massage gently into the scalp.'
