Do you worry about hair loss, quality of your hair or premature greying? Understanding how your hair growth cycle works and how to nourish the active growth phase is key.

Hair growth cycle

Did you know that each of your hair follicles goes through three phases of the growth cycle?
  1. Active growth phase (anagen)
  2. Transition phase (catagen)
  3. Resting phase (telogen)
During the active growth phase the hair follicle receives nutrients directly from the blood vessel, which allows it to grow. Many factors, including your diet and lifestyle may influence the health of your hair. There are some natural ways that can assist you to enhance the growth (anagen) phaseof the hair, its strength and quality.
