Animal hair has traditionally been used as reinforcement in lime renders as a means of improving tensile strength and to reduce shrinkage cracking. Introduced into the mix by teasing the hair into the mix prior to the mortars use. The use of hair in renders is most definitely advised on walls with a lath background and hair should be added to the first two coats but not the final setting coat. Hair acts as a good reinforcement by reducing the amount of shrinkage cracking in thick coats of render.
