Normal hair cycle
Our follicles have their life cycle. There are many reasons which effect the growth of the follicles. One is a person is suffering from long illness disease or the person is suffering from some chronic disease.
We can divide the life cycle of Hair into the following phases:-
Hair follicles grow in repeated cycles. One cycle can be broken down into three phases.
- Anagen – Growth Phase :This phase is also called growing phase as 85% of the hair growth occur in this phase
- Catagen – Transitional phase:This phase is also called the transitional phase this phase is the phase in which hair shrink by 1/6 of the normal length. After Anagen phase the hair enters into this phase.
- Telogen – Resting Phase:This phase last for 5-6 weeks.This is not the growing phase and the Hair Remain to the follicles.This isd called the Telogen phase
