If you were to pull someone's hair hard enough, it wouldn't break. It would just pop right out of the scalp.




I'd interpret the phrase in bold as come off suddenly right out of the scalp. Correct me if I am wrong. Thanks.

    Yes, what you say is correct. The main idea the sentence is trying to convey is that the hair stays whole. It doesn't break off.
