In brief: Hair growth
Hair follows a specific growth cycle with three distinct and concurrent phases: anagen, catagen, and telogen phases.
Each phase has specific characteristics that determine the length of the hair. All three phases occur simultaneously; one strand of hair may be in the anagen phase, while another is in the telogen phase.
