How hair loss occurs?

Hair loss is generally due to interferences in the normal hair life cycle. Generally, hair undergoes an active stage and a resting stage, known as ‘telogen phase’. 60 to 70 percent of hair is generally in an active state of growth.

The remaining hair is in a state of rest. Hair in the telogen phase does not grow and this usually extends up to 3 months. After that, hair falls off and is replaced with new hair growing from hair follicles. This is the cycle undergone by each and every strand of hair. Hair falls is a natural and gradual process.

It becomes common and excessive during old age. But when it comes at a younger age and at an abnormal phase, it requires attention. Various factors influence the hair life cycle, thereby disrupting it and causing a greater proportion of hair to enter the telogen phase. This is followed by a greater proportion of hair falling off.

 This is known as Telogen effluvium and may even extend beyond the average of 3 months. Nevertheless, such a hair loss, is usually temporary but in chronic cases may even damage hair follicles and cause permanent hair loss.
