Understand your hair growth cycle and Kaya’s Hair Loss Treatment


The human hair follicle is an intriguing structure, and much remains to be learned about hair anatomy and its growth. Learn more on hair anatomy only at Kaya, The Hair Expert.

Hair is a defining characteristic for all mammals. In human beings, the development of hair follicles being at the time of fetus formation, after which no new follicles are formed. Your hair is an important biomaterial primarily composed of a protein named keratin. Understanding your hair anatomy can be complex, but it will help to understand your hair growth cycle and its structure.
The anatomy of your hair is divided in to two major parts, the hair root and the hair shaft. The part of the hair which is beneath the dermis or the skin’s surface is known as the hair root. This is enclosed in a tube like structure called the hair follicle. The generation of new cells takes place in the hair root. The visible part of your hair is made up of dead cells and is known as the hair shaft. When new cells are formed in the root it pushes out the old cells which lead to the formation of the shaft. Other than the two major divisions, the hair shaft if further divided in to three different components.
•  The cuticle is made up of transparent cells which overlap each and forms the outer layer of your hair. The cuticle gives resilience and elasticity to your hair. It therefore influences the general condition of your hair.
•  The middle layer of your hair forms the cortex. It is made up of a rope-like protein fiber and is protected by the cuticle. If any damage is caused to the cuticle it exposes the cortex casing moisture loss. This results in the unraveling of the cortex which leads to spilt ends and damaged hair.
•  The core or the supporting structure of your hair is called the medulla. It is the soft central core and does not have any noticeable function. The absence of the medulla does not affect the strength or structure of your hair. It is also interesting to note that most human hair do not have it.
Another significant gland which affects your hair is the sebaceous gland. It is connected to the hair follicles and is found all over the body, except your palms and the soles of your feet. The sebaceous gland secretes sebum, which contains fat, cellular debris, and keratin. During the hair growth process the sebum keep the hair water proof, which prevents the hair from becoming brittle.
Every hair on your scalp has its own hair growth cycle. In a single day you lose about 100 hairs due to changes in this process. Losing more than 100 hairs in a day can be a result of various factors and is not healthy. Following are the three hair growth stages that your hair goes through:

•  Anagen (The Growth Stage):

This phase plays a key role in the formation of your hair. The growth stage last for about 2 – 7 years. The rate of metabolism of your hair during this stage is very active. This causes the rapid division of hair cells which leads to the formation and growth of new hair. The hair that grows during this phase is very sensitive. In this phase the hair root can reduce its activity and limit the growth phase due to reasons such as stress, diseases etc. or due to nutritional deficiency.

•  Catagen (The Transition Stage):

During this stage of the hair growth cycle your hair is no longer growing. This is the transitioning phase where your hair moves from the active growth stage to the rest stage. This phase lasts for about 2 – 3 weeks. In this phase the shaft detaches from the hair root and is pushed up through the scalp.

•  Telogen (The Resting Stage):

This is the final stage of your hair growth cycle. This is the resting phase during which your hair is released and falls out. During this phase the hair follicle remains dormant, after which the whole process repeats itself.
Most people experience extensive hair loss due to factors which affect their hair growth cycle. This form of hair loss is known as Telogen Effluvium (TE). There are physiologic factors such as stress or hormonal changes, which causes your hair to enter the telogen phase at once.
