    hair or hairs

    My mum's washing her hair/hairs.
    I think that hair is uncountable noun.
    So I can say that My mum's washing her hair.(not hairs)
    Am I correct?
    Thank you teachers, in advance.

    Am I correct? Yes, when referring to the growth of hair on the head.
    Thank you teachers, in advance.

    Oh yes, there is something like hairs:

    While eating Christmas pudding, Mark found two long black hairs in it. He suspected that they were his sister's, and had gotten in there accidentally.
