Plenty of people collect things, but Ezzeya Daraghmeh has a particularly unusual hobby. The 82-year-old Palestinian woman has been collecting her own hair since she was 15. “I like my hair and I hate to throw it away," she explains. "Even when I comb my hair or wash it I keep the hair that falls off.” Ezzeya has now collected enough strands of her own hair that she stuffed three pillows full of it. She uses the pillows as decoration in her West Bank home.
