What Cycle Does Your Hair Bear Throughout Your Life?

…..I would like to continue our review of hair loss in women.  Let us start with the hair growth cycle.  There are three phases of this cycle: anagen (growth phase), catagen (transitional or resting phase), and telogen (testing or shedding phase).

What Cycle Does Your Hair Bear Throughout Your Life…..In the anagen phase, the hair grows, and 80 to 90% of all hair follicles are included in this phase.  This growth pattern can last for 2-3 years, and the length of time is genetically determined.

…..The catagen phase lasts only for 2-3 weeks.  In this resting phase, only 1 to 3% of the scalp follicles are included.

…..The last phase is the telogen phase.  This is when hair is shed usually at a normal rate of 75-100 hairs per day, and it lasts for about 3-4 months.  So it is important to remember that it is natural for some hair loss every day!
