Stages of Hair Growth

The three stages of hair growth are the anagen, catagen, and telogen phases. Each strand of hair on the human body is at its own stage of development. Once the cycle is complete, it restarts and a new strand of hair begins to form.

The Anagen Phase

The anagen phase is the growing phase of the hair follicle, which typically lasts from 3 to 5 years. This is one of the most active phases of hair growth. Every 28 days hair grows at least 1 cm in length. The span during which hair remains in the anagen phase depends purely on genetics. Generally balding interferes with hair growth when the hair follicles prematurely leave the anagen phase.

The Catagen Phase

The catagen stage is an intermediate period where the hair follicle prepares itself for a rest. This phase typically lasts for about 1 to 2 weeks. The deeper portions of the hair follicles start to collapse during the catagen phase. Melanin production ceases at this time.

The Telogen Phase

The resting or shedding stage also known as the telogen phase, usually lasts for about 3 to 4 months. New hair begins to grow as the older hairs are shed and their lives have finished. Hair growth is suspended when the anagen phase is cut short and hair remains in the telogen phase all the time. Revitalize your hair with Regrowz.
