Paula Sunshine, 42, has collected hair from her local hairdressers, her hair and her dogs’ hair. No, she is not making a doll with all these, but she has extended her 16th century home with hair as a unique building material. While teaching traditional building techniques, she came up with an innovation. She replaced the traditionally used cattle hair with human hair and mixed it in her lime render mixture. The wall of her extended home has her hair and as well as her pet’s hair. She plans to use more human hair as she carries out the renovation of her house. According to her, human hair does the same ting that cattle hair does for plaster, as in both the cases fiber is provided that holds the plaster together. She makes wattle and daub using straw and the lime render on the outside walls is made up of lime plaster and hair.
