Worms don't have teeth and can't feed on any material that is too big or hard for them to chew on. So hair being soft and elastic is an easy fed for worms providing them with lots of desired proteins for fast growth.

Hi nick, welcome to the forum. You are absolutely right about worms not having teeth however they don’t need them. Worms eat very little if any of the food we provide for them. What worms eat are the microbes, fungus and other organisms which break down the food we provide.
Hair pet or human can be used but is very slow to break down and is best up into a garden compost bin.
