You are all being way too paranoid. People lose brains cells consistently
and on a daily basis. And whoever posted something about you losing 15 I.Q.
points is rediculous and very untrue. Sure you may lose brain cells getting
a haircut but you can pretty much lose brain cells doing anything. The
danger involved is low, the only way you would have a stroke or other damage
would be if you had a medical problem already and you must be very careful
with what you do. In such a case you would probably isolate yourself to your

As for the person who had a headache after a haircut, this could have been
attributed to multiple factors. Hair salons are full of chemicals and other
pollutants that can cause distress for those who are quite sensitive (myself
being one of them). However if you were on the verge of head ache, it
doesn't take much for a bit of rattling around for it to develop into a
headache. It could even be triggered by a loud sounds or light. And no,
brain cells cannot come back to life and are not produced by your body Once
dead, they are permenantly dead. You start off in life with approximately
one trillion brain cells. Now, however, scientists have found that cells in
the region of the brain responsible for memory and learning are capable of
being regenerated in a laboratory. You really shouldn't worry too much about
killing brain cells unless you frequently smoke, drink, or use other drugs.
