Normal Hair Cycle

Stages of the Hair Growth Cycle:
Each hair follicle lives in a cycle of a long period of growth, followed by a relatively short period of rest. During the rest period the hair is still attached to the hair follicle, but it is not growing. After the resting phase the hair is shed and a newer hair begins to grow, starting a new hair growth cycle. The growth cycle of a hair consists of 3 stages.

1. ANAGEN (GROWING) STAGE
   The anagen stage is the growing period of a hair follicle. This stage typically
   lasts about 3 to 5 years and constitutes about 90% (1000 days or more) of the
   growth cycle.


2. CATAGEN (INTERMEDIATE) STAGE

    The catagen stage is the intermediate period of hair growth. Hair follicles
    prepare themselves for the resting phase. It lasts around 1-2 weeks. During this
    phase, the deeper portions of the hair follicles start to collapse.


3. TELOGEN (RESTING OR SHEDDING) STAGE

    The telogen stage is the resting and shedding period of the hair cycle. It usually
    lasts 3 to 4 months. At the end of this period, older hairs that have finished their
    life will fall out and newer hairs will begin to grow. The telogen phase (100 days)
    along with catagen phase, constitute only 10% of the hair growth cycle.
