Hair Growth Cycle

No two peoples hair will grow the same or at the same rate.

  • The Anagen Phase – The longest phase of the growth process, this stage typically lasts between two to six years. The follicle is active and producing new cells resulting in hair growth at a rate of approximately ¼ of an inch per month. Each follicles Anagen phase is on its own clock. Since the period of active growth varies from person to person, individuals with a long Anagen phase can grow their hair much longer than those with shorter Anagen cycles.
  • The Catagen Phase – This transition cycle marks the end of active growth, preparing the follicle to separate from the hair. The hair bulb at the bottom of the follicle detaches from the blood supply and moves upwards. The follicle itself shrinks rapidly to encourage this upward push. The dermal papilla detaches from the follicle’s base, but does not travel up. Catagen is the shortest phase of the growth cycle, lasting only about two to four weeks.
  • The Telogen phase – The follicle rests and prepares for another round of the Anagen period. This dormant phase typically lasts between three to five months. The hair is matured and no longer has access to the blood supply because there is no longer a need to grow. Towards the end of this phase, a new hair follicle begins to form over top of the old, shrunken one.

Ensure your client is aware that using oily products and other things may affect the extensions longevity.

On average, people will lose between 1 and 5 hair every day.

Additionally, humidity changes in the autumn months can play a role in the hair growth cycle. If your skin is dehydrated, your hair follicles (located just under the skin) don’t get the nourishment they need for the hair to grow. Dehydrated follicles can cause the hair to be brittle and are more likely to fall out before their time is up.
