Why is it every time you want to grow your hair it seems to be so slow? Other times you’re fighting to cover up your regrowth every few weeks.
This is because your hair grows in various stages and sometimes it will be faster than others.
Here are our tips to get you to your dream length as soon as possible
*A sebaceous gland is a microscopic exocrine gland in the skin that opens into a hair follicle to secrete an oily or waxy matter, called sebum, which lubricates the hair and skin of mammals.
If you’re a lover of science, you may be interested to learn that each hair is always in one of three growth phases:
The Anagen Phase
The Anagen phase is the period of growth. The cells in the hair bulb divide rapidly creating new hair growth. Hair actively grows from the roots for an average of 2-7 years before hair follicles become dormant. In this time, hair can grow anywhere between 18-30 inches. The length of this phase is dependent on your maximum hair length, which varies between people due to genetics, age and health.
The Catagen Phase
The second phase of your hair growth cycle is Catagen. This period is short, lasting only 2-3 weeks on average. In this transitional phase, hair stops growing and detaches itself from the blood supply and is then named a club hair.
The Telogen Phase
Finally, hair enters its third and final stage called the Telogen phase. This phase begins with a resting period, where club hairs rest in the root while new hair begins to grow beneath it. This phase lasts for around three months.
Ultimately, the best resource you can have when growing your gorgeous locks is a stylist who is as invested in your hair as you are. Why not book a consultation with the team at Eden today to get your long hair journey started?
