Hair Growth

Keratin which is a protein helps in stimulating hair follicles thus helping them to grow. All the hair follicles are already present at the time of birth when a person is born. The hair follicles have 3 specific growth phases: Anagen, Catagen, and Telogen. They have specific characteristics that determine the length of the hair. 2-6 years is the time taken by the hair to grow during the growth cycle.

Factors that determine hair growth are genes, age, hair type, nutritional status, psychological factors, hygiene, and certain health conditions.

The thickness of the hair depends upon the volume of hair present. The thickness of hair can be reduced due to hair fall. The causes of hair fall are genetics, hormonal changes due to thyroid problems, pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, certain autoimmune conditions, nutritional deficiencies, physical or emotional stress, and certain hairstyles and hair treatments. The use of certain drugs for a prolonged time, as a side effect, may cause hair loss.


Some of the treatments for longer and thicker hair are:

  • Micro-needling: Micro-needling is a skin roller with small needles that are used to stimulate the hair follicles which helps in hair growth.
  • Hair transplant: It is a surgery where a strip of skin with hair or individual hair is taken from a part of the scalp and transplanted to the thinning or bald area.
  • Low-level laser therapy: laser is used to stimulate cell growth which stimulates the hair follicles
  • PRP therapy: Stem cell hair transplant therapy. The active follicles are harvested, replicated, and implanted into the affected area of the scalp.

These treatments are not suitable for all and might cause side effects in the longer run.
