T444Z Hair Products have been formulated to combat hair loss by initiating re-growth. Like most hair loss treatments, our products begin to work immediately but results tend to vary from person to person. Some begin to see results as soon as 7 days while for others it can take over two months or longer depending on various factors explained in detail below.
Our products have been formulated to work by creating an ideal growth environment for your overall hair growth but it is very important to understand the various hair growth stages and the importance of patience and consistency during the process of using our products.
HAIR GROWTH CYCLE
It is vital to know that each strand of hair on the human body is at its own stage of development and once the cycle is complete, it restarts and a new strand of hair begins to form. The rate of hair growth is about 1.25 CM or 0.5 inches per month or about 15 CM or 6 inches per year.
THE FOUR STAGES OF HAIR GROWTH
Anagen Phase: This is a phase known as the growth phase and the period where hair physically grows at an approximate of 1.25 cm per month.
Hair begins in the papilla and can last from two to seven years. The longer the hair stays in the anagen phase, the longer it will grow. During this phase the cells in the papilla divide to produce new hair fibres resulting into the follicle burying itself into the dermal layer of the skin to nourish the strand. Because hair is continuously growing during the anagen phase, the length of this phase of the hair growth cycle is determined by the maximum length of your hair and for most people this is 18 to 40 inches.
Catagen Phase: This is also known as the regression or transitional phase where the hair follicles shrink in size, detach from your skin and starts the process of falling out which takes around 2 weeks. Although hair in this phase "detaches" from the skin, it usually does not fall out until the new hair pushes it out from the scalp.
Telogen Phase: This is known as the resting phase and in this phase the follicles remain dormant for two to five months . Most people have about 10 to 20% of their hair in this phase but more hair shedding can be temporarily triggered by stress and other health related conditions.
Telogen Exogen Phase: This is known as the shedding phase .In this phase the old hair completely detaches from the scalp and falls out which is replaced by new hair completing the hair growth cycle, giving you replacement hairs for all of the hairs lost during the catagen, telogen and exogen phases of the growth process.
The hair growth process just like other important processes in your body can be interrupted and affected by external factors like stress, malnutrition and illness. For example the lack of protein in the body can cause hair to enter the telogen phase prematurely resulting in excessive thinning and hair loss. Some studies also show that stress can inhibit hair growth by causing hair to enter into the catagen phase prematurely (telogen effluvium). The best way to prevent this stress related damage or hair loss is to eat a healthy diet and consume Vitamins for healthy, thick and strong hair.
