THE STAGES IN THE LIFE-CYCLE OF A HAIR

Everyday we lose 80-100 strands of hair normally but this doesn’t affect the volume of our hair because it has its own life-cycle. As on the one hand, they fall but on the other hand, the new ones replace them and this goes on in a cyclic way as a continuous process.

3 STAGES OF HAIR GROWTH CYCLE:

Each hair undergoes three distinct stages of growth before it falls off. To deal effectively with hair problems, how to grow hair faster or regrow hair, it’s imperative to understand the growth cycle completely.

3 STAGES OF HAIR GROWTH CYCLE

1st PHASE - ANAGEN:

  • The Anagen phase is synonymous with the growth phase of a hair primarily responsible for the formation of healthy hair

  • The follicles or hair roots are very active in this phase & ensure fast division of hair cells

  • Hair grows approximately ½ an inch every month

  • It grows a little faster in summers than in winters

  • This phase is usually of 3-5 years but extends up to 7 years amongst Asians

  • A full length hair averages 21-29 inches during its life cycle

  • Around 85-90% hair on one’s head remain in this stage at any given time

  • The longer a hair stays in this stage, the longer it will grow

2nd PHASE - CATAGEN:

  • At the end of Anagen phase a hair enters the Catagen phase

  • This is known as the transitional phase

  • In this phase the follicles renews itself

  • This period lasts about 2 weeks

  • The hair roots shrink to almost 1/3rd of its original size

  • The hair gets detached from the follicle and travels upward to the scalp

3rd PHASE - TELOGEN:

  • Also known as the Resting or Shedding phase

  • The follicle remains dormant during this phase

  • At any given time 10-15 percent of our hair remains in this phase

  • This resting phase lasts for about 3-4 months

  • At the end of this phase the hair falls off, sometimes on its own, sometimes pushed by newly grown hair

  • After this the cycle of a hair starts afresh, thus making it a continuous process

CORRELATION BETWEEN GROWTH PHASES & HAIR FALL

CORRELATION BETWEEN GROWTH PHASES & HAIR FALL:

Once the problem of hair fall plagues you, you have to understand the entire cycle of hair growth. In order to comprehend how to regrow hair, you need to find out the root cause of hair fall.

  1. When the natural balance, that exists between growing Anagen hair & shedding Telogen hair, is for some reason disrupted.
  2. If large numbers of hair enter the Telogen phase prematurely, the massive shift between the ratio of growth & fall, leads to thinning/balding.
  3. The reasons for disrupted growth cycle can be manifold & varies from person to person. Few primary reasons are:
    • Imbalanced Diet leading to nutritional deficiencies
    • Heredity/genes
    • Terminal illnesses/prolonged medication
    • Styling/chemical based hair products
    • Stress/lifestyle
    • Exposure to sun/pollution

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
