Hair loss

Hair and nails are defined as skin appendages that naturally grow from the body. They consist of keratin, water, lipids, and pigments.

Under particular conditions of stress, the life cycle of the bulb (cell that encloses the hair) can slow down its activity and as a consequence we can observe excessive hair loss.

Hair life cycle

1

Anagen phase
Anagen growth phase: The duration of the anagen phase is different in men and women. It is recognized that normally in men it is around 2-4 years, while in women it is around 3-6 years. When the anagen process slows down the hair that falls out is not replaced by new hair.

2

Catagen phase
The growth phase stops. It lasts about 7-21 days.

3

Telogen phase
Is the resting phase of the follicle and has a duration of about 3 months. During this phase the hair leaves its bulb.

Factors that predispose hair loss
