Hair growth cycle follows a pattern which is 3 to 7 years. Each follicle, independently of the other, passes through the stages of activity and rest. The anagen or growth phase is longer and lasts between 3 and 7 years, after this phase, the hair stops growing and falls a few weeks later. After a resting phase for a few months, the follicle re-enters activity and begins a new phase of growth. Under normal conditions about 14% of hair is renewed annually. On an adult healthy scalp, between 80-95% of the follicles are in the anagen phase (growth).
Personal or external factors (unbalanced diets and/or weight control, stress, excessive exposure to seawater or sun, dyeing or bleaching hair, etc.), can weaken the hair and/or cause fragile and brittle nails.
