My hair and how it grows
My hair and how it grows
Did you know that your hair grows in three stages? All the hair on your body grows in cycles, but not every hair is always at the same stage, at the same time. Here are the three stages of hair growth.
Anagen: The Growth Stage
The first stage of hair growth is the Anagen Stage. This is the stage of the cycle where new hair is produced. Approximately 85% of all the hair on the body will be in the growth stage at one time.
Catagen: The Regression or Falling Out Stage
The Catagen Stage is the second stage in the hair growth cycle. In this stage, the hair shaft grows upward and detaches itself from the bulb. Once the hair has detached itself from the bulb, its also gets cut off from the blood supply. This means that the hair no longer receives any nutrients or pigment. This is the mean reason why hair in this stage looks dull and unhealthy. Only 2 to 3% of the body’s hair will be at this stage at any given time.
Telogen: The Final or Resting Stage
This is the stage in the hair growth cycle when hair is at its fullest size. In this stage, hairs are completely erect in the follicle, allowing the hair to show above the skin’s surface. Hair is more likely to either shed or fall out during this stage. Only 15% of the body’s hair will be in this stage at any given time.
It is normal to shed around 100 hairs per day. Most people notice more shed hairs than normal when washing their hair, on their pillow in the morning or when brushing their hair. Postpartum women in particular notice the shed of the hair…if you have had a baby recently you will know all about this!
A wide range of factors can impact on the health of the hair, hair shedding and hair growth. These factors can prevent the body from efficiently absorbing the essential nutrients from food and are often lifestyle related.
