There have been variousvarious questions aboutabout the android Data, how human-like he really is in his needs and behaviour, but none of them address something I started wondering as soon as I first saw him.

Look at that sleek, well-groomed hairstyle. As far as I've watched in TNG (which admittedly isn't very far at this point), I've never seen him with a single hair out of place. Is it just fixed-form bioplast sheeting in a different shape from his skin, or does it grow and need to be cut regularly and combed each day like human hair?

The same question could apply to his fingernails and so on, of course, so my general question is:

does Data's body change over time and require regular care, or not?
