Are Colgate toothbrushes made with pig hair?
Not any more. Long ago, in the early days of toothbrush manufacturing, all toothbrushes were made with boar's bristles. Around about the time of WWII and the invention of nylon, this changed.

The Product manufacturing is started with moulding the handles. To mould the handles you 1st get some plastic and shape it into pellets. The pellets are then placed in an injection moulding machine, which heats the plastic until it is melted. A rotating screw or plunger then forces the liquid plasti…c into the handle moulds. The moulds form the entire handle, including the small holes, called cores, where the bristles are inserted later in the production stage. The moulds are then securely clamped, pressure is then applied to the moulds while the plastic cools. Once the moulds have cooled, the clamps are removed, and small pins push the handles out of the moulds. The bristles, which are normally made out of nylon, are then automatically positioned into the core of the handle and stapled into position by small metal staples. The next stage is then to trim the bristles by using a trimming machine which slices the bristles to the correct length and shape. The finished toothbrushes are then set of to be package and then shipped to shops to be sold. (MORE)

A: The best way to answer this question is to reverse the two parts. First, your hair grows from follicles within the skin. The part of the hair inside the follicle (below the skin's surface) is known as the hair root, while the portion you see protruding from the head is the hair shaft. At the base… of the hair root is the hair bulb where nutrients are received and new cells are formed. Also within the hair follicle are the dermal papilla (a cone shaped protrustion at the base of the follicle which feeds blood - and therefore nutrients - to the hair bulb), the sebaceous gland (or oil gland) which lubricates and keeps the hair healthy and shiny, as well as the arrector pili, a tiny muscle anchored to the follicle. The arrector pili respond to stimulus (fear or cold) causing them to contract and make the hair stand up straight. Taking nutrients from the dermal papilla, the hair bulb generates new hair cells. As these cells move up through the hair root, they mature through a process called keratinization, fill with fibrous protein and lose their nucleus. When the cell loses its nucleus it is no longer alive. By the time the hair emerges from the skin it is merely fiber made of keratinized proteins. (MORE)
both. actually, I'm pretty sure that they only have hair. the difference is that when there is fur on an animal, it sheds. --------------------------- Scientific American published an interview in 2001, with an expert mammologist from the New York American Museum of Natural History, where… the question of the difference between hair and fur was asked. The short answer is, "no difference"). It's very interesting, and can be found here: http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=what-is-the-difference-be Whether it is referred to as "hair", or "fur"; how long it grows; and whether it ever stops growing, is based : - first on the species of mammal involved (for example, neck hair on horses, versus neck hair on cats) - then - if there are breeds of that mammal - on the breed (for example, the length of neck hair/fur on Siamese cats versus length of neck hair/fur on Persian cats, or length of neck hair/fur on Friesian or Andalusian horses , or Appaloosa horses ) - and finally on the genetics of the individuals themselves. When, or if, the hair/fur in a certain area ever stops growing, depends on the type of hair/fur it is. Whether fur/hair is shed, depends on all of the above, as well. See also: What is the difference between hair and fur As to guinea pigs breeds specifically, guinea pigs have a very large variety of coat textures and lengths, including, but not limited to: - Abssynian - hair about an inch, and growing in swirls or cowlicks (the placement of these is critical in show guinea pigs) - Smooth Coat - short straight hair lying close to the body - Peruvian - very long straight hair, can fan out around the guinean pig for over a foot - Rex or Teddy - very short, kinky hair, looks like a brillo pad - Texel - long thick soft wavy hair in curls and ringlets 1-3" long - Satin - a variation on the other types - incredibly SHINY like it's been lacquered! There are many more official coat and breed varieties in guinea pigs! --------------------- (MORE)

all guinea pigs lose hair (unless it's a skinny pig that doesn't have any lol) constantly. it's called shedding and it is completely normal. it is just the old dead hair falling out so the new hair can grow in. now you may be talking about something different from that like losing patches of fur …and being able to see skin. this is definitely not good. you should talk to a vet and maybe take your guinea pig in for an examination. if for some reason you don't want to or are not able to take him/her to the vets then you should look on the internet and or in books and try to find out as much as you can about what you can do (buying ointments or special cream at the pet store) stuff like that. you could even talk to somebody at your local pet store (hey it's worth a try right?). sorry i can't help you more then that. I'm not a vet and i have never had this happen to my guinea pig. i just thought of one more thing. if your guinea pig seems to be scratching a lot and it's skin looks irritated it is possible it is losing the hair because of the scratching and the scratching is because it has mites or lice. if this is what it is you should be able to see eggs or little bugs in your guinea pigs fur but if you can't and the scratching is still going on you can probably treat it anyways. you can buy non-harmful (at least to the guinea pig ;D) spray in or shampoo to remove lice or whatever it is. again you can talk to an employee in the store and they can help you choose what would be best. when my guinea pig had lice we actually used a shampoo to get rid of lice in cats (this was suggested by the employee) and it worked great. after 1 or 2 uses they were gone and our guinea pigs were not harmed by the chemicals in the shampoo. but again make sure you talk to someone who works there before buying just anything that "looks" right.

Hair Comes From Where? Whether hair is growing out of your head, arm, or ankle, it all rises out of the skin in the same way. It starts at the hair root, a place beneath the skin where cells band together to form keratin (the protein that hair is made of). The root is inside a follicle (say: fol …-ih-kul), which is like a small tube in the skin. As the hair begins to grow, it pushes up from the root and out of the follicle, through the skin where it can be seen. Tiny blood vessels at the base of every follicle feed the hair root to keep it growing. But once the hair is at the skin's surface, the cells within the strand of hair aren't alive anymore. The hair you see on every part of your body contains dead cells. That's why it doesn't cause pain when someone cuts your hair with scissors! Nearly every hair follicle is attached to a sebaceous (say: sih- bay -shus) gland, which is sometimes called an oil gland. These sebaceous glands produce oil, which makes the hair shiny and a bit waterproof. Sometimes, like during puberty, these glands can pump out too much oil and a person's hair may look greasy. Time for a shampoo! (MORE)
Toothbrushes are made out of plastic, and magnetic metals. The basic shape of the toothbrush is outlined using a shaper it is filled with melted plastic and then when hardened, the electric circuit and battery case is added.
They can, if you keep them when they get older. It is not uncommon for a pig to lose it's hair, and it it more common when they have access to mud. They get they itches, and will scratch until they are comfortable, and this often results in the loss of hair. Some pigs will grow it back, while others… will stay hairless for life. It your pigs hair is just falling out though, that is a sign of something bigger and should be addressed by a vet. (MORE)
A modern toothbrush is made up of two parts, the handle and the bristles. The handle is made up of plastic and sometimes plastic and rubber with small hole at one end that hold the bristles. The bristles are made up of short strands of nylon and are held in their place in hole in the handle by small… pieces of corrosion resistant stainless steel staples. (MORE)
think about it... if you had a thick coat on all winter, you'd take it off in summer, wouldn't you? that's what the guinea pigs are doing.
In the US they are manufactured in Iowa City IA, they also have plants in China and Mexico but all toothbrushes sold in the US are made in Iowa City. This is seemingly untrue as I have found Oral B toothbrushes for sale in US stores that state right on the packaging "made in China."
The Chinese were believed to create the first real toothbrush, or a device that was used to clean teeth, but it was much different than the ones that we are used to today. These first toothbrushes, crafted in the 1400s, did not use nylon for bristles, or plastic for the handles. They were crafted fr…om bamboo, one of the most common plants from that area. The bamboo formed the handle for people to hold on to. Attached to this handle was a set of bristles, which were crafted from the tough hair of the Siberian wild boar. The hairs used came from the back of the neck of this animal. This is the toothbrush associated with having been the ancestor of the one that we use today.\n. \nHowever, there is evidence that there was another form of the toothbrush dating up to 3000 years before the birth of Christ. Due to this, the history of the toothbrush proves that this device is one of the oldest still used by man, only truly outdated by the wheel. This form of the toothbrush was found within pyramids of the Egyptians. These toothbrushes were crafted from a stick. Unlike the Chinese version of the toothbrush, the end of the stick was flayed so that the fibers of the wood were more soft. This stick was then rubbed against the teeth to serve as a form of oral hygiene. This form of the toothbrush did not become far spread as the Chinese version.\n. \nThe Chinese version of the toothbrush spread to Europe, where the Siberian wild boar took the brunt of the growing popularity of the invention. The only downside to the hairs of the Siberian wild boar was the fact that it was very rough on the gums. On account of this, some people began to use the hairs found on the backs of horses to craft the bristles on their brushes, as this was much easier on their gums and teeth. Despite the added softness of the horse hair bristles, the boar hairs were more commonly used, as horses were too valuable to Europeans during this period of time.\n. \nThe boar hair toothbrush continued to be used until the early 1900s. In 1937, nylon was created in the Du Pont laboratories by Wallace H. Carothers. This invention forever changed the history of the toothbrush, as well as every other device that required a fibrous material, including ropes. In 1938, Nylon became the sign of modernization, from the creation of nylon stockings to Dr. West's first nylon toothbrush. This brush was called Dr. West's Miracle Toothbrush. Even with this breakthrough in the toothbrush, it wasn't until World War II that Americans began to take oral hygiene more seriously. This was a direct result of the war. This influence spurred on the development of better toothbrushes. (MORE)
yes they do they love the feeling and playing in it also they like to chew on it! -hailey-
simple part your hair 2 the left and 2 the right then put it up as you normally would a regular ponytail
Nobody made pigs! They're living creatures that evolved from microscopic organisms millions of years ago!
The human body Hair is made out of a protein called keratin. Keratin is a protein, which is made up of amino acids and other things. Keratin is also found in human skin, teeth, fingernails and toenails.
It all depends on if you like brushing your guinea pig a lot. You see, long hair guinea pigs are harder to groom and their hair gets full of dust and bedding and gets kind of nasty. But, short hair guinea pigs have more trouble keeping themselves warm. So it depends on if you are a brusher or a cudd…ler. If you are both, then I suggest getting a long hair and a short hair to share a cage together. (MORE)
Yes ,the bristles and the handles of toothbrush are made of the same material that is nylon.
Not really. Guinea pigs arn't like cats on licking themselves. A cat has hairballs because when they lick themselves, hair from their fur gets into their mouths. So, in other words, NO guinea pigs do not lick themselves so they DON"T have hairballs. Although they DO groom themselves on their own so …you arn't really supposed to give them a bath. THEY HATE IT WHEN YOU DO. (MORE)
The answer to this question is simply a lot. There is, sadly, noexact answer to your question, because there are too manyvariables.

The genre for Who Put That Hair in My Toothbrush is more like a comedy in the beginning and the middle. In the end it is more like a drama.
yes they do. try going to exotic pet stores and they might have those products you are looking for.
Yes they do. That's why it's important to brush long haired guinea pigs every day. Short haired guinea pigs only need brushing about once every week.
No, not all guinea pigs have hair! There is a new breed of guinea pig at the moment called a skinny guinea pig! I hope I help. If you are interested get involved with North Qld cavy club inc its a lot of Fun ~Guinea pig Lover 4eva:)~
I have been looking for that same answer! But All I found is no. But there are shampoos and grooming placeing to keep the guinea pigs clean. I am planning on going to a pet store and seeing if I can find more out. If I do I will get back to you.

It's transforming into a human. Unfortunately, this is quite common and the human/guinea pig mix is very dangerous. Take cover while you can...it may be too late.
Long haired guinea pigs have longer hair and you will have to comb their hair daily. Short haired guinea pigs have shorter hair so you won't really have to comb it.
Well first it is 'our hair made out of?' And second, the answer is a protein keratin .
don't cut guinea pigs hair unless u have a long-haired guinea pig i would take it to the vet
Who Put That Hair in My Toothbrush is about a brother and sister that fight and can never get along. Then one day, when something sad takes place in the sister's life and the sister disappears, the brother goes out of his way to try to find her. Once he finds her, they both figure out that no matte…r how much they fight and don't get along, at the end of the day, they love and care about each other very much. (MORE)
Just cut around his butt so that urine doesn't get on it and maybe if its dragging on the floor and gets dirty.
The main thing is that the brother and sister learn to get along and that they do deep down love each other. The sister also learns a lesson about living life to the fullest after her friend at the nursing home dies.
If i has super long hair, then sure. But I would highly suggest not to!!
You are actually supposed to brush your guinea pig's hair to keep it from getting matted. The guinea pig usually enjoys it, too!
Well, guinea pigs are very cute, but there has to be a king of all kinds. Longhaired guinea pigs tend to be a little bit more cuddly, because of, well, their smooth long hair. But short haired guinea pigs need less grooming and are easier to take a bath. Less shampoo, less water, less everything! (l…ess materials you need to take your pet a bath though) I think long haired guinea pigs are better for people who have at least an hour a day to spare. To groom your guinea pig's hair that is. So I really can't decide now! It depends on how busy your schedule is! Hope this helped for people who are gonna adopt a guinea pigs! (like me!) Or basically for people who just want to know! =p (MORE)

My hair was made by me. Our skin contains follicles beneath the tissue which cause hair to grow. The color comes from pigment. There are literally millions of follicles on our bodies with a concentrated amount on the head.

G uinea pigs (also known as cavies) are normally divided into three coat types: Smooth-haired - The short coats are the easiest to look after. There is a range of colours, markings, patterns or crests. Long-haired - The long silky hair needs brushing every day and regular bathing. These includ…e the Sheltie, the Coronet and the Peruvian. Coarse-coats - These coats give the guinea pig an unusual rough look as the hair swirls and points in every direction giving it a rough appearance. (MORE)
