I would not make it part of your diet. Occasionally we all swallow a strand of hair, but if you are continuously swallowing hair, there will obviously be a cause and effect of some type. We are not cats who can cough up hair balls!

Another answer

no it is not good because hair balls are going to start growing inside your body. and then you can not breath.
