I recently had a haircut, and have noticed that water in my air dries up faster when I short hair. I assume that hair loses water due to evaporation. We have been taught that evaporation is faster when the surface area is increase (which is the reason why behind drinking tea off a saucer)
But, when we have longer hair, the surface area of the hair is supposed to be more. So, why does hair dry faster when it is shorter and has lower surface area? Just genuinely curious to know this.
