Hair is produced within an organ called the pilosebaceous follicle and is formed from a tubular invagination. It is important to know the phases of hair growth in order to accurately identify the problems that may affect the hair:

1. Anagen or growth phase 

It is the period of hair growth. The root cells are active and new hair is formed. If the papilla is kept in good condition, this process will remain active for one to seven years, with an average growth rate of one centimeter per month. Approximately 80% of the hair is in this phase.

2. Catagen or transition phase 

It is a transition period that lasts two to three weeks. Growth stops and the hair root detaches from the papilla. Approximately 15% of the hair is in this phase.

3. Telogen or resting phase 

It is the resting phase, which lasts from three to four months. During this period, the papilla has disappeared and the root is nothing more than a thin appendage that falls from the bulb, leaving room for new hair growth within the follicle.

4. Regrowth phase

The papilla is reactivated, with a supply of nutrients, and new hair begins to grow. Approximately 5% of the hair is in this phase.

The hair loss process is accelerated by daily washing, brushing and drying.
