why it hurts when someone pulls his hair but not when he goes for a hair cut?

Expert Answer:

The hairs that are pushed out of our head are dead cells, so when our hair is getting cut, the scissors are cutting the dead cells, so we don't feel anything. But when our hair is pulled intentionally, it is pulled from the root which is not dead. So it hurts
