Hair follicles undergo cyclical & unsynchronized growth. This cycle is made up of 3 phases
The hair passes through the 3 phases: Anagen, Catagen and Telogen each independently of the neighboring hairs.
The growing phase of the hair growth life cycle.
Lasts between 3 to 7 years and determines the length of your hair.
The regression phase of the hair growth life cycle.
Lasts about 3 weeks and is where the hair bulb separates from the Dermal Papilla and the hair follicle shrinks.
The resting phase of the hair growth life cycle.
Lasts up to 4 months and is where the hair finishes shedding and the hair follicle re-enters the Anagen phase.
An unhealthy or interrupted hair growth cycle can leave“the follicle dormant, stuck in one of the stages, or it can lengthen the resting phase while shortening the growing phase.
RevuCell Organics helps to re-balance an unhealthy growth cycle to optimize the life and growth of your hair.
Women and men are affected by hair loss in different ways
By age 35, two-thirds of American Men will experience some degree of hair loss.
By age 50 approximately 85% of men have significantly thinning hair.
Hair loss in men can be much more extensive, affecting mostly the temporal areas and the top of the head.
Women make up 40% of American hair loss sufferers.
The North American Menopause Society reports that hair loss affects 50% of women before age 50.
Women experience diffuse hair loss and tend to lose hair on the top of their head.
Hair Loss Is Linked To An Imbalanced Hair Growth Cycle
In people with healthy hair, about 85 – 90% of the hair is in the Anagen phase and the other 10 – 15 % is in the Telogen phase.
When hair loss occurs it is caused by an imbalance of the hair growth cycle which results from several factors including androgen metabolism, genetics and stress.
Hair loss is characterized by:
Changes in the proportions of Anagen and Telogen hair: the number of Anagen hairs is reduced and at the same time too many hairs remain in the Telogen phase.
A decrease in the duration of Anagen phase leading to shorter and thinner hair
A prolongation of the interval separating the loss of a hair in Telogen phase and the emergence of a replacement Anagen hair.
