new word: 'trichoequilibrium'

me and grim_tim and drjane invented a new word at the weekend. it is "trichoequilibrium" and as of writing this it has no google hits. the word means: the natural length your hair will remain at if you don't have it cut.

as an example of usage, if you have fast growing, strong, or persistent hair, you will end up with a longer trichoequilibrium point than folks who don't.

(i just read a latin textbook, can you tell? 18 books this year, by the way, i hope to have all 50 done by the end of summer! more if graphic novels count.)
