I want to know what difference in usage these sentences have?

1)This hair that grows every morning until it touches the floor(original)
2)This hair grows every morning until it touches the floor

I guess first sentence emphasize that her hair is unique.

If you have to know what was before this sentence you are welcome:

So today, I'll make myself look as adorable as possible to welcome him again then he 'll cut my hair

Maybe it refers to "my hair" in this sentence

  • Please don't say that "that" is a relative pronoun. It's not -- it's a subordinator.

The 1st one is not an independent sentence. It may be the part of a sentence, where the NP ("the hair") is followed by a subordinate defining relative clause ("that grows every morning") and an adverbial clause ("until it touches the floor").

The 2nd one is an sentence.
