They do not carry on growing but the skin dehydrates and shrinks, revealing more hair, bristle and nail; this gives the appearance of growth.

You sound a bit tressed. You should tack a break of work and go on vacation.

You ask a lot of question! Hair and finger nails a both not alive, only the roots are.

Its not your hair and fingernails that grow but it's your skin that tightens making it look like that. Just look at Cher.

They don't. That's an urban legend. The roots may live on for a few hours but when they use up the nutrients they have stored they die just like the rest of the body.
