Is Hair Dead Cells?

Answer

Hair are keratinized cells found almost all over our body. The part of the hair located in the roots are responsible for growing by feeding through the tiny blood vessels within the follicles. However, once the hair grows out of the follicle into the skin surface, the cells in that part of the hair is considered dead cells. This is the reason why you don't feel anything when your hair is cut.

Not all of the nail and hair are dead cells. For nails, the growing part is under the skin at the nail's proximal end under the epidermis, which is the only living part of a nail.
