60% of women and 80% of men will experience hair loss in their lives. However, 46% of women suffer in silence, feeling alone and unsure of where to turn for help, because female hair loss and hair thinning remain a greatly stigmatised ‘taboo’ subject.
Learning about hair growth, and the major causes of hair loss, can help to break this taboo and offer effective treatment.
A normal Hair Growth Cycle has a 3-5 year duration, with each strand growing to its own schedule. At any given time, 85-90% of hairs are in the Growth Phase, with 10-15% in the Resting Phase, having reached full growth potential. The hair is then released from the follicle and a new hair grows to replace it, completing the cycle.
Almost all types of hair loss have one thing in common – a disrupted Hair Growth Cycle – but despite many different causes of hair thinning and hair loss, achieving normal hair growth requires supporting and maintaining a normal Hair Growth Cycle.
