HAIR TRANSPLANTATION FOR WOMEN
The human hair formed by a protein called keratin. Keratin exists in skin and skin supplements like nail, bristle and hair. The human hair begins its life as 1000 follicles in 1 cm when we born and when we become 25 this number decreases to 600. The reason of this increase is not the hair loss, but the growth of the area when the follicle number is constant. Our hairs are in a renewing phase from birth till death.
This hair loss can be increased or decreased according to the seasons. Especially in the spring but most significantly in autumn the hair loss may be increased. The scientists are thinking that the reason of the hair loss is caused by the decreased melatonin which depends to the lessened day light.
During the normal cycle of hair, some hair will be grow and some will fall out. These shed hairs (telogene phase) are starting to grow after a certain resting period (anagene phase). The hairs in anagene phase are enclosing the 85% of all the hairs. The phase is the growing period of the hairs and continues for 2-3 years.
In catagen phase the growing stops, the hair becomes tinner but there is no shedding at this moment. This period will last for 2-3 weeks. The ratio of the un-growing and thin hairs is 3-4% of the total hairs.
In talogene phase the hairs are becoming thinner and then shed. The hair ration in this phase is about 15% of the total. This phase lasts for 2-3 weeks and then new hair starts to grow in its place. As you can understand from this cycle, your hair will be shed in each 3-4 years, and then re-grow. The reason of 60-80 daily hair loss is this natural cycle. For the new transplanted hair the same cycle is also valid.
