How does the hair on your head and chin know to grow long, but the hair on your eyebrows or arms stays short?

The cells that make the hairs on your arms are programmed to stop growing every couple of months, so the hair on your arms stays short. The hair follicles on your head, on the other hand, are programmed to let hair grow for years at a time, so the hair can grow very long.
All the words in this quiz begin with "long". Adding another word to the end of long will create an entirely new word. I will give the meaning of the new word and you must indicate what word needs to be added.
