How does the hair grow?
Hair is made up of protein called keratin which is produced in hair follicle. As the new hair grows the old hair moves above the skin. The hair you see above the skin is the same old hair or you can say the hair we see is the extension of the dead keratin. The shelf life of a hair depends upon the health condition of a person and the stress and other physical and eating habits of a person. The shelf life of the hair is divided into three stages:
- Anagen: It is the active growth phase of the hair which lasts for two to six years.
- Catagen: It is the transitional phase of the hair growth which continues for two to three weeks.
- Telogen: It is the last phase of the hair growth or the resting phase which lasts for two to three months. At the ends of this phase this hair sheds and a new hair is grown the from hair follicle.
