Wow - you've inspired a great topic for a weekly survey: scalp fur.

Mrs. doesn't approve, but I, too, have ponytail. Hair, between wavy and curly, makes it always appear thick.

I'm glad your furs' regrowing. Here, via the evidence of evolution, is why:

Humans have lost just about all of their body hair - but not on their heads. Why? Well, it's because hair is there to protect the brain from blazing sunshine and winter's frosty bite. In hotter (equatorial) climates, it even evolved to curly so as to increase the air content and be a better insulator. Dark, too: counterintutive? Not if you realize most of the suns heat is in the infrared range. It is absorbed rapidly by the darker hair on the outer layers whilst in very northern climates, it became possible for blond haired mutants to survive as the sun is never that intense.

So - and I suppose you'll agree there's some importance to this - your brains protective most-outer layer is repairing itself and the implication is that your body thinks it's worth it.
