    The hair and beard may grow after death or post mortem, and even change color! I once read about a case of a man who had short, black hair and beard at the time of interment, but who, some time after death, was found to possess long and yellowish hair. Aristotle discusses postmortem growth of the hair, and another cites an instance in which the beard and hair were cut several times from the cadaver.
