A Normal Hair Growth Cycle has 3 phases:

The Hair Growth Cycle is the all-important mechanism regulating hair growth in the body. Normally, each individual hair strand follows its own hair cycling schedule, completely independent of other hairs on the scalp.

At any given time, 10-15% of your hair is shedding. This is completely natural and part of a normal Hair Growth Cycle.

During a normal Hair Growth Cycle, specialised components called proteoglycans play an important role in the normal cycling mechanism of the hair follicle.

1

GROWING PHASE ANAGEN

Approximately 85-90% of the hair is actively growing at any given time.
Average duration: 3 years, but can be longer.
2

TRANSITION PHASE CATAGEN

Approximately 1% of hair is in this phase at any given time. The hair’s nutrient vessel, the dermal papilla, disconnects from the follicle and brings the growth phase to an end – afterwards the hair is shed.
Average duration: 1-2 weeks only.
3

RESTING PHASE TELOGEN

Approximately 10-15% of hair is in this phase at any given time. Once the hair reaches its full growth potential, it sits inactive in the follicle until released. The follicle then produces a new hair, thereby beginning a new growth phase and completing the cycle.
Average duration: 3-4 months.

The Disrupted Hair Growth Cycle

Regardless of the hair loss cause or the hair growth issue, the Hair Growth Cycle is almost always affected. A disruption to the normal Hair Growth Cycle can cause both increased shedding and weaker regrowth, leading to thin and wispy hair.

The consequences of a disrupted Hair Growth Cycle are often:

1

Shortened Growth Phase

The duration of the growth phase is shortened and the entire Hair Growth Cycle becomes affected.
2

Early Transition Phase

When the growth phase is shortened, the hair follicle enters the transition phase earlier than normal.
3

Prolonged Resting Phase

As more hairs enter the resting phase prematurely, the normal resting phase becomes prolonged, causing increased shedding. A prolonged resting phase means that fewer hair follicles re-enter the growth phase, which results in weaker or no regrowth (this is often referred to as dormant hair follicles).
