- hair growth cycles
cycles of normal hair
healthy human hair normally
follows a cycle of growth (anagen stage), transition (catagen
stage) and then falling out (telogen or resting stage). then new hair growth starts over
growth (anagen) stage
normal healthy hairs grow at
the rate of about 1/2 inch per month, but vary by individual.
a healthy hair follicle produces a strong, thick, colored
hair. the hair follicles grow the hair for a period of 2 to 6
years in increase in diameter during this phase. in a normal scalp, about 90% of the hairs are in this
stage at any given time. some follicles produce thick
colored hairs, called terminal hairs and other follicles
produce short, thin, non-colored hairs, called vellus hairs.
transition (catagen) stage
after the growing stage, the hair goes into a short
transitional stage, which typically lasts about two to three
weeks. less than 1% of your hair is in this stage at any
resting (telogen) stage
next the hair follicles enter a period of rest for
approximately three months. after that time, the follicles
lose their old hairs and resume
the growing stage of producing new hairs. about
10% of your hairs are in the resting stage
at any given time.
most individuals lose between 40 and 100 hairs per day. this
is a very small amount of hairs, considering that the
average head of hair has approximately 100,000 individual
shafts of hair.
normally, as the hair goes through these three stages, the
follicles tend to return to the same length and width during
the growing phase. as a result, they generally produce the
same length and width hair shafts.
all hairs cycle through these three stages repeatedly. the length and thickness
of each hair shaft is determined by how long
the hair itself is allowed to grow in the follicle before entering into the resting
/ shedding stage. consequently, pattern hair loss is actually a
gradual conversion of thick terminal hairs to thin vellus-like
and excessive hair loss
it is common for
people who do not have a hairloss problem to lose between
40 and 100 hairs a day. when you consider that the average
person has about 100,000 individual shafts of hair on
their head, this is a very small amount.
generally, as healthy hair goes through its normal 3
cycles of growth, resting, fall out and re-growth stages,
the follicles tend to return to the same length and width
during the growing phase. consequently, they typically
produce the same length and width hair shafts each cycle.
all hairs cycle through these three stages repeatedly. as
a result, the actual length and thickness of each
individual hair strand is affected by how long the hair
itself is allowed to grow in the follicle before entering
into the resting / shedding stage. thus, when one is
losing his / her hair, in male or female pattern hair
loss, there is actually a gradual conversion of thick
terminal hairs to thin vellus-like hairs.
when healthy scalp
hair grows normally, the scalp hair generally grows for a
period of about two to five years, at a rate of about a
half inch per month. after a ninety day resting phase, new
hair replaces the old which has been shed. in those
suffering from pattern hair loss, a change in the cycle of
hair growth is shown to occur. growing cycles become
shorter and resting cycles become more longer. a
negative change in the quality of the hair may also be
indicative that one is starting to experience pattern hair
loss. these are hairs which are growing shorter in length,
thinner in diameter, lighter in color and weaker in their
in both genders,
typically, the onset of male or female pattern hairloss
(androgenetic alopecia - aga) occurs in early adulthood,
such as the 20s, 30s or 40s. in men, advanced aga
may result in loss of hair such that the only remaining
coverage is found exclusively in the temporal and
occipital regions. women are prone to exhibit a more
general type of hair loss with pronounced thinning of
individual hair shafts and hair loss throughout the scalp.
