Wolverine

Wolverine has the ability to regenerate. His cells are constantly renewing, they don't die. If hair and nails are dead cells, why isn't he bald?

Because the old FOXDIE in his body continues to mutate.

@Monkae:  
Bald? its not like they don't die, they just get replaced, if anything you should be asking why doesn't his hair constantly grow... but then their life span isn't less than normal people's hair lifespan...

Animals groom themselves much better than humans generally. His hair isn't that fancy by chance.

Wolverine's hair and nails are constantly growing. This doesn't really have anything to do with his supernatural ability to regenerate damaged/lost tissue at all, as the growth of hair and nails is something that is customary in human beings. Why would they fall off? Much like his tissue is replaced, so are his nails and hair, like any normal human being.

The only living part of hair is the "bulb" inside the follicle. Everything outside the follicle is dead. If dead is replaced with living, then he shouldn't have anything other than follicles in theory. I just assumed his healing was similar to Deadpool's to an extent (as Deadpool's was supposed to recreate Wolverine's), his cells constantly renew. But that's probably down to fighting his cancer.  I know they messed with Deadpool in Wolverine: Origins, but he was bald during his fight with Wolverine, maybe it's just swings and roundabouts. Different levels of regeneration.
 
Second theory. Since mammals can't regenerate dead hair follicles, maybe Wolverine is either part fish, bird or amphibian :P

I think I thought too much into it, and it's just simply for looks. Wolverine would look weird without hair.
