The life cycle of the hair

The life cycle of hair is different for each person and depends on many factors, the most important of which is genetic predisposition.

There are three stages:

Stage 1: Development

This is the growth phase. About 85 - 95 percent of the hair on your head is at this stage of the life cycle.

Stage 2: Origin phase

At this stage growth slows down. Within a few weeks the hair follicle shrinks.

Stage 3: Telogen phase

Now the hair is ready to fall out, and as a new hair begins the growth phase, it pushes the old hair out.

As the years go by, fewer new hairs begin the growth stage

Causes of hair loss

Myriad factors contribute to male hair loss such as pre-existing diseases, stress, unhealthy habits, medications, hair treatments and hormonal changes. However, the primary driver is genetic. Research indicates that 70% of the male population experiences hair loss at some point in their lives.

Hair loss in women is more complex. The most common cause is also predominantly hereditary, but damage to the hair follicles can often be caused by excessive hair strain due to modes of styling and treatments with strong chemicals. Iron deficiency and menopausal hormone change play a part too.
