    Name: Flexible Hair

    Description: A genetic modification that causes changes in har Strands of hair become fewer in number but thicker - roughly 5 mm in diameter - and often rubbery (although there are options to change the texture, none of them make it closer to normal hair). Cosmetic appearance varies wildly, from snakes (but like the rubber toy ones, they don't hiss or bite) and tentacles to ropes and chains - there are a lot of options, as long as it's along the lines of: long and flexible, so yes, lizard tails on your head is an option, as are vines.

    Abilities: Makes hair into a tentacle-like thing. That's about it. Your hair is bendy.

    Conditional Abilities (Optional): You can hold some small, handled objects with it. Like a teapot or a bucket. Able to change up your hairstlye whenever you want. Hair can also be made to be less flexible and instead contain joints (yes, crab hair.)

    Limitations: Doesn't grow as easily, nor does it 're-grow', you've got to chop the whole strand off to have it looking complete again - leaving you with a bald spot or a tiny, hideous stump.

    Conditional Limitations (Optional): Some hairstyles are definitely going to be veeeeeeeeery hard to pull off. Bleaching your hair is a no-go. Blood flows to your hair so a haircut is also going to be difficult. Also, being cloned will do a similar thing to what happens with cat ears after cloning (your normal ears becoming furry) and will cause bodily hair to be similar.

    How does it work: The genemod uses tentacles as a base, alters the appearance and texture of the end product and then is genemodded into where head hair is.

    Flavor text:
    Morally grey scientist was sick of not having enough limbs and pockets to hold all their stuff and it kicked off from there.

    Attainability:
    Open

    Hey Teldrassil. After reading few this, I've just a few questions. Just for my own clarity, the hair is able to move like tentacles?

    Alright, sorry for the wait. One last question. How exactly do chains work as hair?

    They’re not actually chains, just uh flesh that looks more like chains because it has a hole in the middle. They aren’t separate loops, just look like they are because of how the flesh is shaped, they’re fully attached.
