Top radical is a character only found in Chinese, meaning 'hair'. Its right element is a pictograph of three hairs; its left element is a variant of 'long' (長). The bottom radical is of somewhat obscure origin; it acts phonetically to express 'grow'. Henshall suggests taking the upper right radical as 'three strands', the bottom radical as 'friend' (友), and as a mnemonic: 'Friend's hair includes three long strands.'
