Hair growth cycles

The production of hair is not continuous one, but instead occurs in cycles.

The growth phase is known as Anagen, followed by the transitional, regressive phase Catagen, and then the resting phase of Telogen.

During the relatively long Anagen phase, which lasts for 1,000 days or 2-5 years, the matrix cells divide, become keratinized, and hair is produced.

The Catagen phase lasts for about 2-3 weeks and is of little importance.

During the Telogen phase, which lasts for several months, the cell division stops, hair growth ceases, and the attachment of the hair to the base of the follicle becomes progressively weaker.

Finally, as a result of ordinary traction, whether it be from combing, washing, the hair’s own weight, or a push by a new, emerging hair, the old hair is eventually shed and discarded.

A smaller percentage of women ages 30 to 60 may notice a thinning of the hair that affects the entire scalp. The hair loss may be heavier at first, and then gradually slow or stop entirely. This hair loss usually develops gradually and may be patchy or an overall diffusion. The average person loses about 100 hairs daily from the approximately 100,000 hairs their scalp contains.

Genetics is the number one contributor for baldness.

Androgenetic Alopecia, also known as male-pattern baldness is a genetically determined disorder and is the leading cause for hair loss in approximately 90% of men and women affected. The gene can be inherited from either parent.
Hair loss can be reversed.

For temporary triggers such as hormonal imbalances, disease/infection, smoking, a poor diet, or excess stress, once the trigger has been treated, normal hair growth usually resumes.

Baldness is influenced by internal factors rather than external or environmental factors.

Loss of hair and baldness is driven by internal factors such as genetics, health and diet, whether you smoke or not and hormones. Thinning hair can also be a cause for stress and anxiety which then fuels the cycle even more. Baldness is not affected by frequent hair washing, wearing a hat or any other external or environmental factors.
