Thank you for your question. Do you mean if you can obtain a DNA sample from hair? What is the purpose of the sample?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.

DNA from hair to try and match a DNA little sample from a object

Expert:  Harris replied 1 year ago.
Obtaining a DNA sample from hair is not straightforward as the testers would usually need more than one strand of hair that is freshly plucked containing roots from the head.

They took 5 so could that be match to a little DNA off a object

Expert:  Harris replied 1 year ago.
If the object has a DNA sample which is yoirs then they would highly likely match

What if they aren't from the root and they say they have a parical sample

Expert:  Harris replied 1 year ago.
They will likely want to obtain a further hair sample, or possible a sample of your blood/oral swab for a more accurate sample.
Hair samples without root will not contain DNA.
