Are you wondering if there’s anything you can do to make your hair grow faster? If using any products help? Can specific diets or food speed up growth? How about medications or treatments? In this article, we’ll help answer those questions. Let’s take a closer look at what affects hair growth and then share with you on some tips on how you can improve the growth of your hair.
Hair growth has three stages – anagen, catagen, and telogen. Each hair strand has its stage of development. The anagen stage is the active growth stage, and typically lasts between three to six years. In the next phase, catagen is a stage of transition or renewal for the hair follicles. The telogen phase is the resting phase where the hair stops growing. Then the hair returns to the anagen stage where the hair matrix forms new hair and restarts the hair growth cycle.
Now that you are aware of the different stages of hair growth, here’s what you can do to stimulate your hair to grow faster and stronger.
