The Hair Growth Cycles
Before exploring the causes of hair loss, it’s helpful to understand the different phases of hair growth: anagen, catagen, and telogen.
The first phase of hair growth lasts between two to seven years. The length of this phase is directly related to the length of your hair. The longer your hair is in this phase, the longer your hair will be. For most people, about 80% of their hair is developed in this phase.
The second phase lasts about two weeks. The hair stops growing during this transitional period.
This resting phase lasts for about three months, and the follicles remain dormant.
During the recuperation period, new hair will begin entering the growing period. About 10% of your hair is in the telogen phase at any given time. At the end of this phase, the hair naturally sheds and is replaced by new growth.
