Can the hair regrow?

Can the hair regrow?Every person loses hair and this, daily. And new hair also grows every day, according to the natural hair growth cycle. But if the quantity of hair lost is important, can the hair grow back? And what to do to foster this regrowth?

The hair cycle

The hair follows a natural growth cycle in three phases. The anagen phase, which lasts from 2 to 5 years, is the one during which the hair grows. At any time, most of the hair present on our head is thus in the anagen phase. During the catagen phase, which last about 3 weeks, the hair is no longer fed and it stops growing: it is in a dormant state. Then it is the telogen phase at the end of which the hair dies and ends up falling. Every day, we thus lose approximately 50 to 100 hairs.

Abnormal loss and hair regrowth

During more important fall, the regrowth of hair can sometimes be total, depending on the factor that is in cause. This is the case, for example, when the loss is due to a nutritional deficiency, a medical treatment, a significant hormonal change (such as pregnancy), an infection, an important stress, etc. When the situation that caused the fall is resorbed, the regrowth of hair usually occurs when the hair growth cycle resumes its rhythm. However, in the case of androgenetic alopecia, the most common abnormal hair fall, hair regrowth is usually partial even after a treatment.

Promote hair regrowth

When hair falls abnormally, the hair's dormancy phase is unduly prolonged and is less often followed by a growth phase. Capillary scientists are therefore looking for ways to promote the awakening of these dormant follicles. Research on stem cells of hair follicles is very promising in this regard. Other studies, carried this time on cells of the immune system, have also showed a potential for the regeneration of hair follicles.
