We all have hair let it be excessive or normal hair. There is little we know about our hair. Getting your hair to make you look better takes major time and effort.
Our hair is like a plant, follicles are like the roots and the upper part is like a stem without the leaves. Follicles are the reason why we have straight, wavy, curly or coiled hair types.
Most of time our ethnicity defines the hair type we have.
If you are an Asian like most of us, chances of you having curly hair or body hair fall is quite rare.The reason lies in our hair follicles.
Hair has a growth cycle. It is like being born, growing up and eventually waving goodbye to us.
The terms for these stages are:
This is when our hair has grown up and visible above the skin.
This is optimum time for waxing, shaving and hair removal.
In this stage when hair growth stops and the starts its decline toward hair fall.
Hair is released and eventually falls out.
