Hair Thinning is commonly mistaken for Hair Loss. Learning and understanding the significant difference between Hair Thinning and Hair Loss will enhance results from Hair Loss Treatments. The hair cycle impacts every single hair on the head and is mostly the cause of Hair Loss related to health and can result in Hair Thinning after Hair Loss when the hair cell is undernourished or the hair cycle is disturbed.
Reading the hair cycle is accurate when using a digital microscope of 60x magnification. The hair cycle can only be read in the terminal area of the scalp as the front can be effected by Female Pattern Thinning and Male Pattern Thinning. Every hair in the terminal area should be exactly the same diameter reflecting your genetic hair type. When thinner hairs are found in the terminal area one can tell the hair is not growing as it should and this will also affect the hair cycle.
Hair Cycle phases:
- Anagen the growing phase
- Catagen the resting phase
- Telogen the falling phase
- Return back to Anagen
The Anagen determines how long the hair will grow and can be read by the hair length. Once the Anagen hair reaches its length in years it will automatically go into the Catagen resting phase. Coming out of the Catagen resting phase the hair enters the Telogen phase where a new hair is developing which pushes out the old hair and the cycle begins again.
If something goes wrong in the body it can affect the hair cycle or the development of the hair cell resulting in Hair Loss or Hair Thinning. Most Hair Loss Treatments do not consider the hair cycle and it is essential to check and correct the hair cycle to get the Best Hair Loss Treatments.
