Hair grows on every part of our bodies, except on the palms of our hands and the soles of our feet. Hair is actually made of keratin that is formed in the hair follicles. As we said earlier, it’s not perceivable that we lose 100 hairs a day because of the fact that we have 100,000 to 150,000 hairs on our heads!
The life cycle of a hair follicle has three stages.
Anagen: In this stage, there is active hair growth that lasts between two to six years.
Catagen: Here, transitional hair growth lasts two to three weeks.
Telogen: This is the resting phase. It lasts for about two to three months.
When the regeneration of hair slows down and the scalp sheds more and more hairs, we have a condition called hair loss.
