The Growth Cycle Of Hair By Dr Robert Jones

I get many questions regarding hair growth: Why am I shedding so much hair in the shower? Does my hair grow faster in the summer when I am out in the sun every day? These are common worries that are totally irrelevant to hair loss or the growth process of your hair. Hair growth is divided into three cycles – the Anagen, Catagen and Telogen phases. Hair will continually cycle through these three phases throughout a person’s life. The cycle does not depend on the season or climate conditions, but does vary when a person has certain medical conditions, is taking medication or has another condition such as pregnancy. Anagen is the growth phase of the hair. The hair in this stage grows rapidly at about 0.4 mm per day, 1 cm every 28 days. Scalp hair stays in this active phase of growth for two to six years. Catagen is the transitional phase. About 3% of all hairs are in this phase at one time. The Catagen phase begins when growth finally stops, the hair is then released from the follicle, and is no longer attached at the root at the end of this stage. The detached hair in the follicle is called a “Club Hair”. Telogen is the resting phase and accounts for 6% to 8% of all hairs. This phase is essentially the shedding of the club hairs, and it lasts for different lengths of time on different parts of the body. On the head, this phase is about 100 days long. About 75 Telogen hairs are shed in a normal person each day. Some people have trouble growing their hair long, and this phenomenon is genetic. Certain individuals have hair that spends more time in the Telogen phase and less time in the Anagen phase. To this extreme, arm and eyelash hair only grow to a very short length because their locations are programmed to provide a very short Anagen phase. These genetically determined differences between people are inalterable. In the Anagen phase, quite interestingly, the same follicle planted on different parts of the body will grow to different lengths, showing that the growth cycle differs depending on where on the body the hair is growing. I have used chest hairs in various repair cases, transplanting these one-inch hairs onto the head. Amazingly, these hairs can grow up to three or four inches when planted on the head.

As males grow and mature from childhood through to adulthood, they experience a normal change in the hairline that is not a symptom of Male Pattern Baldness. At least once a week, I see a male in his early 20s who is convinced that he is losing all his hair. His hairline has receded about half an inch in the previous five years, and is slightly thinner than it was. As well, temporal angles have receded slightly. This change is part of the normal maturation process – it happens in every testosterone-producing male, and is not a sign that further balding will take place.

Common Causes Of Hair Loss Revealed By Ashish Jain

Don't you consider all types of hair loss as the actual hair loss. Hair loss is a process. Indeed there is a normal cycle of growth as well as loss of hair. If you notice everyday morning, some hair are falling down when you soap your head or comb the hair after the bath, you need get alarmed about it. At any given time, about 10% of the hair on your scalp is 'not on duty'. It is being rested. After 2 to 3 months of rest, it falls off and new hair sprouts in its place. This growing activity goes on for 2 to 6 years. On an average each hair grows about 1 centimeter per month. When 10% of the hair is resting, it also means that the remaining 90 % of hair are growing. If you notice that the hair loss is more than 10%, it could be due to other reasons and hence you need to take extra care and find out the reasons for the hair loss. The special causes for hair loss are many. Here is the list of the common causes. Post Surgery Hair Loss After three to four months of a major surgery or a long illness, you may suddenly face with extensive hair loss. But this is a temporary phase. Once you recoup your original health, the hair will also begin to form on your scalp. Hair Loss Due To Hormonal Imbalance Then there are hormonal problems, which are another cause of hair loss. In such conditions your thyroid gland is overactive or under active. The thyroid disease has to be treated first as hair loss is a consequential action. It is no use treating the hair fall as such before the disease completely peters out from your body. The male or female hormones known as androgens and estrogens are not in proper balance. Treat the hormone imbalance first the hair growth will follow as a consequence. Hair Loss During Pregnancy Hair loss during pregnancy or three months after the delivery is quite common in women. This loss is also linked to hormones. During pregnancy, to keep hair growth that would normally fall out, high levels of hormones are formed in the body. Gradually these hormones return to their original levels, i.e the pre-pregnancy level. And the normal cycle of growth and loss begins again. Hair loss As Side Effect Of Some Medicines Some over the counter medications, antibiotics may also cause hair loss. When you stop taking these medications, your condition improves. Medicines used for gout, chemotherapy to treat cancer, excess consumption of vitamin A, antidepressants and birth control pills are popularly known to cause hair loss. After you determine the peculiar cause of hair loss in you, you can take the treatment as per the physician’s advice. Also remember that proper conditioning and nourishment is a must to have healthy hair. http://www.acnetalks.com/pimple/ & acne blog provides detailed information on acne treatment, pimples, acne skin care, adult acne and more.
