Can You Compost Hair?

Hair

Yes, you can put your hair (and your pet’s hair) in the compost pile. Hair would be considered green composting ingredients (source of nitrogen).

Adding hair to the compost pile can be as simple as sprinkling them in among the other green compost ingredients. Don’t just stop with your own hair. Reach out to local hairdressers or pet groomers and see if they have any bags of hair left to give away.
