    There are different claims on how many strands of hair you can find on an average head, but the consensus seems to be between 100.000-150.000, some estimates going up to 200.000. Obviously, a person with hair loss will have dramatically lower numbers than others. http://htg.addr.com/didyou.htm claim that "the number of strands of hair on a human head varies with color: BLONDE - 140,000 strands; BROWN - 110,000 strands; BLACK - 108,000 strands; RED - 90,000 strands". http://www.bibleline.org/hair.html supports this: "Some years a go, a German scientist counted the hairs on different heads. He found that they vary in number, depending seemingly upon the color. There are more on a head with black hair than on a head with red hair, more on brown than black, more on blonde than brown. The black-haired woman has about 110,000 hairs on her head, and a blonde-haired woman has about 140,000."
