A common form, often a reaction to stress, is telogen effluvium, in which hair is lost over the whole head and body.
Santo said there are three growth phases for each hair folicle--the anagen phase, the active growth phase in which cells form the hair shaft; the catagen phase, in which the hair stops its growth cycle but doesn't fall out; and the telogen phase, in which the hair falls out to be replaced by new hairs.
Hair growth is controlled by a unique repetitive cycle comprised of anagen, catagen and telogen phases (Stenn and Paus, 2001).
This is the hair cycle and it has 3 stages: Anagen, is the active growth period and its length varies from one person to another, lasting about 1,000 days or more; Catagen is the resting or intermediate period, lasting about 10 days; Telogen is the shedding period, lasting about 100 days.
