The Hair Growth Cycle

All body hair grows in three phases, the growth phase (anagen), the regressing phase (catagen), and the resting phase (telogen). These three phases all have names derived from Greek prefixes, ana- (up), kata- (down), and telos- (end).

  1. Anagen Phase:
    The active growth phase of hair follicles. During this phase the hair grows about 1 cm every 28 days, and scalp hair stays in this active phase of growth for 2–7 years depending on your genetics!
  2. Catagen Phase:
    A short transition stage that occurs at the end of the anagen phase lasts for about 2–3 weeks while the hair converts to a club hair. Club hair is formed when the part of the hair follicle in contact with the lower portion of the hair becomes attached to the hair shaft.
  3. Telogen Phase:
    The resting phase of the hair follicle. Club hair is the final product of a hair follicle in the telogen stage, and is a dead, fully keratinized hair. 50-100 club hairs are shed daily from a normal scalp!
