Understanding Hair Growth and Hair Loss

Normally, people undergo hair loss at an average of 50 –150 strands per day. Shedding of hair is normal and even healthy as long as it is within the given range. The moment a hair strand is shed, the regeneration or the growing process begins where a new hair will grow form the same follicle, where the old hair had been.

Most of us don’t know that even the hair in our head had a lifespan of its own. You hair has an average of 2 to years life span where it stays on your scalp. This growth stage is called the anagen phase and around 90% of your hair would be at this stage at a give time. When the lifespan of your hair expires, your hair will now enter into the telogen phase where the hair will stop growing for 3 to 3 months before they start falling down.

Normally, only 10% of your hair reaches this stage at a given time so need not worry of you hair falling down all at once. However, in some people, the rate of hair loss exceeds the rate of hair regeneration process, which often leads to baldness. Still, in some people, the hair that replaces the old ones are made of thinner strands causing general thinning of the hair texture that although the number of stands are the same, the hair on your scalp would look thinner.

In some unfortunate cases, the hair that replaces the old ones grows in patches, which are often unsightly. If you experience any of these unnatural hair loss and hair re-growth patterns, it is best to consult your doctor before doing something about it.
