Tom has quite an appreciable amount of hair. After 2 days, he gets a trim at the saloon. Then he lets it grow. After 5 days, again he goes to the saloon and gets a better haircut. He continues with his haircut till he gets bald. Again, he lets the hair grow for a day or two, after which he again gets bald.
