Life cycle of a hair follicle

There are four stages in a life cycle of a hair follicle and continue through life:

  1. Anagen- growing phase

This is the longest phase, lasting around 3-7 years and the hair is actively growing.

The majority of hair on your scalp are in this phase. Around 90% of hair are in this stage at any one time.

  1. Catagen- Transition phase

This is the next phase the hair enters and lasts around10 days. The hair follicle shrinks and hair growth slows.

Around 5% of hair are in this stage at any one time.

  1. Telogen- resting phase

This lasts around two to three months and the hair stops growing, but does not fall out. Around 10-15% of hair are in this stage at any one time.

  1. Exogen- Shedding phase

This is the last stage of the telogen stage and the hair is shed. This is often more noticeable on washing or brushing your hair. This can last 2-5 months but in the meantime new hair start to grow in the follicle.

Around 10-15% of hair are in this stage at any one time. Losing 50-100 days per day during this phase is normal.

You can promote healthy hair growth by having a healthy life style, reduce stress, balanced diet and good hair care.
