Hairs grow, fall and are constantly renewed. It's called the hair-follicule cycle. This included three phases: growth (anagen), rest (catagen) and fall (telogen phase).
The length of the hair cycle is 2 to 4 years for men, 4-6 years for women. When hair dies, it is immediately replaced by another, and fall only 2-4 months later, once pushed by the new hair.
One person has between 100,000 and 150,000 hairs. Depending on the density of hair, the daily lost is about 40 to 100 hairs, throughout the day with higher loss of 150 during seasonal changes. Seasonal hair loss is temporary and normal, it mainly occurs in spring and autumn.
