Restore and Support Thicker & Faster Growth of Thinning Hair

Hair loss and all the stages of the process

Anagen (The growth phase)

The Anagen phase is the time during which the hair is actually growing - The longer it can stay in this phase, the better. the length of Anagen usually depends on genetics and can last anywhere from two to seven years.

Catagen (The transitional phase)

Once Anagen has ended, the hair follicle will shrink, the papilla detaches, and the hair will no longer be attached to the supply of nutrients. This normally lasts around 10 days.

Telogen (The resting phase)

The final stage in hair growth isn't about growth at all - during Telogen, the hair is released and falls out. The follicle then 'rests' for around 3 months before the cycle is repeated.

Hairs grow from follicles on the scalp. Depending on your genetic makeup, your scalp can have between 90,000 and 150,000 follicles. The production of hair occurs in three different phases: anagen, catagen, telogen.

Anagen Phase

  • Active Growth
  • 2-6 years
  • 1 cm. per month
  • 85-90%

Catagen Phase

  • Transition
  • 1-2 weeks

Telogen Phase

  • Resting (Fall)
  • 3-4 months
  • 80/100 per day
  • 10-15%

The phases run simultaneously so some hairs on your head will be in the Anagen phase and others in Telogen.  For each hair strand, the Anagen phase should start again once the Telogen phase is complete, but some people may experience longer Telogen phases meaning hair is shedding but no new hair is growing.

This may result in thinning of the hair. In this case, the goal is to, effectively, nourish and support the Anagen phase and encourage the growth phase to begin.

The speed at which your hair grows depends on both genetics and the shape of your follicles.

According to the US Center for Disease Control, hair grows at an average of 0.50 inches (1.25cm) per month. This means the average person can expect to grow 6 inches (15.24 cm) of hair per year, which sounds like a lot, right? So why does it never feel like it?

Well, things like poor diet, over-styling and not taking good care of your hair can result in split ends and breakages which shorten the length of your hair.
