Hair science is one of the most captivating topics of dermatology that goes on evolving over the years. Hair disorders are numerous, however molecular biology, the current understanding of hair follicle science is improving.
The natural hair growth cycle is split into four distinct phases. These stages have been studied in great depth to help prevent, and to better treat premature hair loss.
The anagen, catagen and telogen phases are for growth, maturation and all activity of the hair follicle that is based around producing individual hairs. The Exogen phase is the final phase that consists of old hair being shed, normally for new hair growth to take place.
Anagen is the active growth stage of hair. During the anagen stage the hair contains its highest amount of melanin. This stage lasts between 2-7 years. Approximately 85% of all hairs are in this growing phase at any one time. Hair growth is very active during this period, and division of cells is rapid.
At the end of the anagen phase the hairs enters into a catagen phase which lasts about one or two weeks, during the catagen phase the hair follicle shrinks to about 1/6 of the normal length. The lower part is destroyed, and the dermal papilla breaks away to rest below. This phase signals the end of active hair growth as it cuts individual hairs off from blood supply and from the cells that can produce new hair. Approximately 3% of all hairs are in this stage at any time.
The telogen phase is the third stage of the natural hair growth cycle. It is known as the resting phase. It follows the catagen phase and normally lasts about 5-6 weeks. During this time the hair remains dormant for the next hair cycle, it does not grow but stays attached to the follicle while the dermal papilla stays in a resting phase below. Approximately 10 – 15 percent of all hairs are in this phase at any one time. This phase lasts for around 100 days.
At the end of the telogen phase the hair follicle re-enters the exogen phase. The dermal papilla and the base of the follicle join again, and a new hair begins to form. If the old hair has not already been shed the new hair pushes the old one out and the growth cycle starts all over again.
Each hair follicle is independent and goes through the growth cycle at different times, otherwise all your hair would fall out at once. Instead, you only shed a certain number of hairs a day – from 50 – 150 on an average healthy head of hair.
