The average cycle for hair loss and growth
Hair growth occurs in cycles that generally last for around 2 to 3 years. During this time, each hair grows an estimated 1cm per month, with roughly 90% of the hair on your scalp growing and the remaining 10% in a resting phase at any moment in time. It takes 3 to 4 months for the resting hair to fall out of your scalp and for new hair to begin replacing it.
This cycle means that it is completely normal to shed some hair each day. However, some men, women and children can experience heavy hair loss that does not correlate with this cycle.
