The Hair Growth Cycle
The human body is indeed a fantastic marvel of nature. Capable of growth, healing, and so much more. Even the hairs on our head are wonderfully complex. If you want to care for your hair properly, it is useful to understand as much as possible about your hair and how it grows.
Hair grows in a cycle consisting of three distinct phases: a growth phase, a transitional phase, and a resting phase.
The Anagen (growth) Phase
The length of time hair remains in this phase of the hair cycle differs for everyone. During this time, the hair will increase in length. Typically, hair grows about half an inch every month. For people with shorter hair, the growth will be more noticeable than those with longer hair. Certain things will shorten the growth phase including stress, medications, aging, hormone imbalances, over styling and poor diet. Hair follicles are nourished by blood vessels, so if there is an obstruction of some sort or the circulation is weak, it will impact the growth of hair and likely decrease the length of the anagen phase.
The Catagen (transitional) Phase
As the name suggests, this phase is between the growth and the resting phase of the hair growth cycle. The catagen typically lasts for about ten days. During this phase, the follicles of the hair detach from the blood vessel, cutting off the blood supply. The hair follicle will also decrease in size.
The Telogen (resting/shedding) Phase
During the resting phase, your hair is released and falls out. The follicle will be inactive for approximately three months before repeating the cycle over. The shedding phase is also called the exogen phase; however, it is still technically part of the telogen phase. Shedding around 50 to 100 hairs a day is normal. If your scalp is unhealthy, your hair may stay in the telogen phase for an extended period; which can lead to excessive shedding every day for an extended period.
Each follicle goes through these phases at different times, so, you usually don’t have to worry about all of your hair falling out at once. Be sure to eat a balanced diet and try to avoid things that will adversely impact your hair growth.
