How does your hair grow on your head?

Hair growth stimulation works through different phases. There are three main phases and they end in the exogen phase, in which the hair leaves your scalp. The three main phases are:

  • Anagen phase: this is the longest phase lasting most of the time about 3 to 5 years. Around 90 percent of your hairs is in this phase.
  • Catagen phase: this phase lasts about 10 days. During this phase, hair follicles shrink and hair growth slows. The hair also separates from the bottom of the hair follicle, yet remains in place during its final days of growing.
  • Telogen phase: this phase lasts about 3 months. In this phase new hairs begin to form and other hairs almost shed.

How to encourage hair growth? 

To encourage hair growth, you can use a hair growth stimulator such as supplements that support hair growth. These supplements can play an important factor in hair growth stimulation because they consist out of important ingredients for your scalp and hair. For hair growth stimulation you can do the following things: 

Firstly, it is important to get enough nutrients and vitamins in your body. For example, vitamin A, Biotin, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Zinc, and Iron. You can find these ingredients as hair stimulators in Neofollics Hair Growth Supporting Tablets. When you have a deficiency of any of these ingredients in your body than you are likely to experience hair loss, because this can disturb hair follicle stimulation and the hair growth process. 

Secondly, using a Hair Growth Stimulating Shampoo can also help with hair growth stimulation. A shampoo that uses healthy ingredients, which are vegan and natural can help to grow your hair faster and healthier. Neofollics does not use parabens, silicones, or sulphates because that can damage hair follicles and does not benefit the effectiveness of a shampoo to stimulate hair growth. 

Thirdly, do not wear tight hairstyles such as ponytails because this can damage your hair which interrupts hair follicle stimulation and can cause your hair to shed. 

Lastly, do not rub or scratch your hair if you suffer from any hair or scalp condition that causes itching or irritation. Damaging your hair follicles will not be the best follicle stimulator for hair growth as you might have figured out. An itchy feeling can be disturbing but don’t let it cause hair loss by scratching to much or hard. A solution for the itching can be a healthy scalp treatment consisting out of a peeling serum, exfoliating shampoo, and nourishing mask. A healthy scalp treatment can calm your scalp and effectively combat against yeasts, dandruff, and other scalp conditions. This treatment can also work as a mild hair growth stimulator.
