Hair loss is an entirely natural phenomenon that accompanies the life of our hair. If it is persistent or periodic, the phenomenon can be helped with effective and safe treatments. The life cycle of each hair (Anagen) normally lasts 5-7 years. This is followed by a transition period (Catagen) which lasts 2-3 weeks and a period of quiescence (Telogen) which is preparatory to the next phase of growth and lasts about 2-3 months. Sometimes, situations of excessive stress on the hair bulb bring about a lengthening in the period of inactivity and a decrease in the period of hair synthesis. There are also other factors that can produce progressive hair loss: the most well known is androgenic alopecia, caused by a genetic predisposition associated with a high concentration of hormone in the hair bulb.
