Trichology is the scientific study of hair and scalp disorders.
- The Anagen Phase
- The Catagen Phase
- The Telogen Phase
Our head is made by atleast a hundred thousand hair follicles, which in turn, have one, two or four strands for scalp hair. These follicles go through some twenty hair cycle, with the three phases mentioned before.
The Anagen phase has a duration that varies between two to eight years and covers the formation process of scalp hair. After these the follicles enter into a state of rest; these period is the Catagen phase, which extends between four to Six weeks, when the scalp hair start to detach from the scalp, which is known as The Telogen Phase. Once Two or Three months have gone by, the cycle start again.
A person with normal hair activity has 85% of their hair in the Anagen phase, between 1% & 2% of the hair in the Catagen phase, & a 13% of the hair in the Telogen phase. Therefore it is normal to loose between 50-100 hair follicles per day. When people reach old age, the cycle becomes shorter, particularly on the upper part of the head, and the hair shafts loose their length, strength and density.
