Each hair grows from its own hair follicle. Inside the follicle, new hair cells form at the root of the hair shaft. As the cells form, they push older cells out of the follicle. As they are pushed out, the cells die and become the hair we see. There are three stages of hair growth: catagen, telogen, and anagen. Catagen The catagen phase is a transitional stage and 3% of all hairs are in this phase at any time. This phase lasts for about 2-3 wee s. !uring this time growth stops and the outer root sheath shrin s and attaches to the root of the hair. This is the formation of what is nown as a club hair. Telogen Telogen is the resting phase and accounts for "#-"$% of all hairs. This phase lasts for about "## days for hairs on the scalp. !uring this phase the hair follicle is completely at rest and the club hair is completely formed. %ulling out a hair in this phase will re&eal a solid, hard, dry, white material at the root. About 2$ to "## hairs are shed normally e&ery day in this phase. Anagen Anagen is the acti&e phase of the hair. The cells in the root of the hair are di&iding rapidly. A new hair is formed and pushes the club hair up the follicle and e&entually out. !uring this phase the hair grows about " cm e&ery 2' days. (calp hair stays in this acti&e phase of growth for 2-) years. (ome people ha&e difficulty growing their hair beyond a certain length because they ha&e a short acti&e phase of growth. *n the other hand, people with &ery long hair ha&e a long acti&e phase of growth. +hen the hair follicle enters the rest phase, the hair shaft brea s, so the e,isting hair falls out and a new hair ta es its place. Therefore, the length of time that the hair is able to spend growing during the growth phase controls the ma,imum length of the hair. -air loss is random and not seasonal or cyclic. At any gi&en time, a random number of hairs will be in &arious stages of growth and shedding. The hair follicles on your head, on the other hand, are programmed to let hair grow for years at a time, so the hair can grow &ery long. -air grows at a consistent rate of about half an inch e&ery month. It may grow faster or slower depending on your age, your genetics and your hormonal state. This means that the ma,imum growth rate for hair is about ) inches per year. -air growth is a reflection of a healthy body. To enhance growth you need to ta e care of yourself by drin ing lots of water, ta ing &itamins, reducing stress and eating the right foods. (tay away from sugar and chocolate.
