Hair growth and hair fall happen within 4 phases. There are 4 different phases of hair growth namely Anagen, Catagen, Telogen, and Exogen. These four phases do their work at different times. Come, let us know in detail about these four stages -

Anagen: Growing Phase

Anagen is the initial phase of hair growth. This is the longest phase of hair growth. It may take about 3 to 5 years for hair to grow on the head. Also, hair growth can continue for up to 7 years in some people.

Let us tell you that in this phase of hair growth, the hair grows about 1 cm every 28 days. The anagen phase may be different for different parts of hair growth. For example, the anagen phase for the growth of eyebrow hair and underarm hair is shorter than that for hair growth on the head.

Actually, in the anagen phase, the hair follicles push the hair outwards, which grows until the hair is cut or falls. At all times, about 90 percent of the hair on the head is in the anagen phase only. Therefore, the anagen phase is considered important for hair growth.

Catagen: Transition Phase

The catagen phase begins when the anagen phase ends. This phase of hair growth can last for about 10 days. Hair follicles shrink in this phase. Because of this, hair growth slows down. The hair splits from the bottom of the follicle. At all times, only 5 percent of the hair on the head is in the catagen phase.

If there is a problem of dandruff in the hair, then the best way is to use anti-dandruff shampoo. Order it now.

Telogen: Resting Phase

This is the third phase of hair growth. It starts immediately after the catagen phase. The telogen phase usually lasts for about 3 months. In this phase, there is 10 to 15 percent of the hair of the head.

Hair does not grow during the telogen phase, but hair does not fall or break in this phase. The telogen phase also occurs when new hair starts forming in the follicles. In this phase, those hairs are formed, which came out during the catagen phase.

Exogen: Shedding phase

The exogen phase is the last phase of hair growth. It is usually a part of the telogen phase. Hair falls and breaks in this. In this phase, hair may break frequently while washing or combing. It is normal to lose 50 to 100 hairs daily during the exogenous phase. The exogenous phase can last for about 2 to 5 months. After this, new hair grows in the follicles.

Let us tell you that Anagen, Catagen, and Telogen phase help in hair growth. In these situations, the phase can last for different periods in different parts of the body. The last phase of hair growth is exogenous. Hair falls in this. Then hair growth starts again. Hair growth takes place in these four phases and hair breaks.
