There are around 100,000 hair follicles on the scalp, which is why it is normal to lose up to 100 hairs a day. Your hair has a cycle that repeats its self just like the concept of recycling. Therefore, If you do not treat your hair and you are only applying heat, doing hairstyles, and not giving it the components that it need; the cycle will not work in your favor. There are 3 stages of hair growth in the cycle, from actively beginning growth from the root to hair shedding. These are known as the Anagen phase, Catagen phase and Telogen phase.
Let us explain.
1. The Anagen phase is the period of growth. The hair strands are receiving a healthy blood supply. Hair actively grows from the roots for an average of 2-7 years before hair follicles becomes dormant and moves on to the 2 stage. In this time, hair can grow anywhere between 18-30 inches.
THE BEST TIME TO TREAT YOUR HAIR! Using our anti hair loss and deep oil treatment while giving yourself massage sessions, will allow blood circulation to flow better; allowing your hair to receive all the multivitamins such as B-complex vitamins sourced by healthy carbohydrates, natural amino and folic acid, and magnesium and potassium. All VERY important hair vitamins you want to feed your hair during this stage that promote GROWTH.
2.The regression phase last up to 2 weeks this is a transitional stage called Catagen where the hair detaches from the dermal papilla and blood flow. This is when hair growth ends, the follicles shrink and the bulb of keratin is acting as a root to keep hair in the scalp. Basically, Your hair strand isn't receiving any blood supply it would need to grow and its at a halt.
If you properly took care fo your hair in the last stage then most of your hair strands should be nourished enough, to where it withholds not having an active blood supply that usually is providing the nourishments your hair needs to maintain shiny, healthy and strong.
3.The resting phase called Telogen, at this stage your hair remains dormant for 3 months basically doing nothing until the cycle restarts and hairs start growing again. This stage has a sub phase called Exogen and that's when the hair actually falls out.
4. Hair strands and/or different areas of your scalp can be in any different stage/phase at any different time.
For example, your hairline can be in the telogen or exogen phase (dormant and falling out) while the rest of your hair is in the amagen stage (growing)
