Hair constitutes a protein called keratin that is produced in hair follicles in the outer layer of skin. As follicles produce new hair cells, old cells get pushed out through the surface of the skin. This life cycle is divided into three phases:
- Anagen – Active hair growth -2 to 6 years
- Catagen – Transitional hair growth – 2 to 3 weeks
- Telogen – Resting phase – 2 to 3 months, at the end the hair sheds and a new hair replaces it and the growing cycle starts again.
