World’s Largest Ball of Human Hair

Henry Coffer (USA) has collected hair into a giant hair ball which weighs 167 lbs (75.7 kg ) is 4 ft (1.2 metres) high and has a 14 ft (4.26 metre) circumference as of 08 December 2008.

Henry Coffer, a 77 year old barber from Charleston Mo., began saving hair at the request of a customer.

Over the 50 plus years he has been collecting,  he has found many uses for his hair clippings, patching potholes, gardening, soil fertilizer and such. Coffer officially submitted the hairball to Ripley. Ripley’s was so impressed they purchased the hairball for a cool $5,000 and a lifetime pass to any of their museums.
