UNDERSTAND HAIR GROWTH CYCLE
Stages of Hair Growth
Hair grows in different stages and at the different rates all over the body. The four stages of the hair growth cycles are;
Known as the "growth" phase; can last 2-6 years, depending on genetics. Each hair is attached by its "bulb" or root to the blood supply in the follicle and continues to grow. About 85% of the hair on your head is in this phase at one time.
The transitional stage the hair detaches itself from its blood supply and starts to shrink and the hair completely stops growing. This stage lasts about 2 weeks. Hair is pushed up to the epidermis (top layer of skin).
The resting stage. The hair and follicle remain dormant anywhere from1-4 months. The new hair that is forming underneath the previous hair starts to grow and push the hair out of the skin completely.
The hair follicle starts to form a new hair as the old hair expelled from the skin. The phase continues and the cycle will start again.
