I think that is the oddest topic I've seen here, and a great mystery to boot. Did it happen just once, or is it occuring often? I used to work in restaurants, and still always tie up my hair when I cook. And sometimes one still gets away. Does Mom prepare food with her hair unrestrained? Hair won't digest, so it would go through. Hmmmm.
Call me a puzzled slowpoke.

unless it's long butt hair?

or

parasites?
It was a full moon recently....were you craving raw meat?  ;-b

It could you're ingesting hair in food, but I'd think you would notice it while you're eating.
 
A puzzle for sure.

i don't think its hair in the food, she does make food, but i would notice it while chewing.... maybe a parasite in me, thats causing these long hairs? my mom has light hair, and these hairs are darker .....this is happened before, not often, but it has happened previously

oooh....I would suggest you ask the doctor for a stool sample container and when you notice it happens to have him send it to be analysed..along with the stool.

Best to know.

I think some parasites can look like hairs...but haven't checked it out.
