How does the body produce healthy hair?
Hair is the fastest growing tissue in the human body and consists mainly of
keratin, which is the same material that gives us elasticity in our
fingernails. The average person has approximately 100,000 scalp hairs, with
some variation depending on the color and texture of the hair. Our hair
grows inside a protective encasement called the follicle, and inside each
follicle grows one to four hairs. This fact is the foundation for
DHI’s newest methods of hair restoration.

What is the hair cycle?
The Anagen (growth) phase is the beginning of the hair cycle, which lasts
between 2 to 6 years. Next is the Catagen (non-growth) phase, which lasts
between 2 to 6 weeks. During the Catagen phase the hair begins to separate
from the follicle. Following the Catagen phase is the Telogen (hair loss)
phase, which lasts between 3 to 4 months. During this period your hair is
pushed out from the follicle as a new hair forms in the root, beginning the
Anagen growth phase again. Hair grows approximately Β½ inch per month and
faster in women than in men.
