What happens if you swallow a single strand of hair?

I accidentally swallowed a strand of hair about 9 inches long today.  Is it going to be in my stomach or intestines for the rest of my life?  Is a single hair going to cause health issues like a blockage?

    Probably nothing at all.

    You poop the single strand of hair.

    How pathetically obvious. But you did hook some gullible fish (amazingly enough), so I've gotta give points for that.

    It'll come out, eventually. People swallow hair, dust, dirt, bugs, nasty crap all the time without realizing it. Nothing seems to happen and it all comes out as it should. How do you think I feel? I have 3 pets that shed, God knows how much of their hair I've swallowed over the years. I'm just fine.

    It won’t be digested, but it’ll come out
