exactly... when you are in the down fall of your jump, the air resistance catches your hair

Hmm, maybe you need some common sense and read the rest of the thread and get a clue

because i just disproved the theory that the earth accelerates upwards instead of having gravity

Due to the earth accelerating all that is in contact with it.

Yeah.
Honestly though, it has nothing to do with gravity. It's just a change in inertia.

But your buddy tom says the earth 'falls' up to you instead of you coming down


and there would be no change in inertia if there is no down motion

No it isn't. Your hair would fall at the same rate as the rest of you in a vacuum.
