IV. Hair Growth StagesIndividual hairs are formed inside what is called the hair bulb foundat the base of the hair follicle. The follicle is positioned, usually ata slant growing out of the skin. The bulb shape at the base of thefollicle contains an egg-shaped cavity filled with loose tissue. Thisis the dermal papilla, and it contains the cells and blood vesselsnecessary for the growth and nourishment from the follicle. Thesebaceous (oil) ducts attached to the follicle are responsible forlubrication of the skin and hair. Moderate amounts of secretionfrom the sebaceous glands are essential for healthy skin and hair.Blood vessels also aid in healthy skin and hair. Vitamins, minerals,and other nutrients needed for strong, healthy hair is brought tothe hair follicle by tiny blood vessels. In the same way, medicationsmay have ingredients that will adversely affect hair health.Hair grows differently for everyone. Hair growth is dependent ondiet, health, weight, metabolism, medications, ethnicity, hormones, age, and other factors. However, all hair goes throughthree distinct growing phases. All three phases occur simultaneously. While one strand of hair may be in the anagen phaseanother is in the telogen phase. Anagen Phase: Also known as the Active growthphase can last up to several years and can be geneticallydetermined. Approximately 85% of our body hair is in thisphase. This is also the phase where there is anabundance of melanin. Catagen Phase: Also known as the Regressivephase. It is not known what triggers the hair to movefrom the active growth phase to the catagen phase.4

This is a short phase lasting approximately two weeks,during which the hair stops growing but is still attachedat the root. About 3-4% of our body hair is in thecatagen phase at any given time. Telogen Phase: Also known as the Resting Phase.This phase lasts approximately 5-6 weeks at whichtime the end of the hair falls out and a new hair beginsto form. Approximately 10-13% of the body hair is inthis phase.Main Reasons for Thinning Brows: Hypothyroidism: causes thinning or loss of hairAlopecia Areata: Total or partial hair lossChemotherapyPrescription drugsAutoimmune diseaseHormonal imbalances (including pregnancy)Skin conditions: including skin growths, skin cancers,psoriasis, dermatitis, and fungal infectionsV.
