Quirky evolution
So at what time did we get long hair on our heads and for what reason?

How did cave men cut their hair or didn't it keep growing?

Just pondering things....

It's a very recent mutation - sometime in the 1940's or 50's - and became evident in the 60's.
There was massive resistance to this evolutionary advance, but natural selection is inexorable.

Sexual selection and possibly a change in environment from hot to cold. Short frizzy hair disipates heat faster. Longer hair would hold it in.

You could cut the hair with a flint knife if it got in the way, or simply tie it back. Some people's hair stops growing after it gets to a certain length, an extension of the gene that limits body hair growth. Hair that obscures vision would be a disadvantage in hunting or when on a war party.
