Now I am just speculating here. Lets say the blocks in the pryamids were poured...like concrete. A theory I have heard.
Hair would not be an uncommon binder. I used to plaster for a living.(stucco) Nowadays fiberglass is used to help strengthen the cement. In the old
days straw was used.(1800's) Before that horse hair was used.( 1700's)
So if the Egyptians had enough knowledge of poured materials it might be possible that human hair could have been used as a binder.
Now that is assuming that they knew how to break down the limestone,and pour it like concrete.And if they did pour it,it would be cold,not hot.
I have done remodels. When we tore down the old plaster,the straw was still in it,not at all harmed by time. Even found a couple of Indian head
pennies,in a mold I tore down to re-work.
So in theory it might be possible that hair could survive.
