3. Hair growth has three cycles namely the Anagen Catagen and Telogen phases
4. Hair will go through all the phases throughout a person’s life
5. These cycles are interrupted if the patient is affected by certain medical conditions if he is taking certain medications or in case of pregnancy in females
6. Hair growth also depends on the area, for example, the eyebrow hairs have a very short Anagen phase hence the brow hair remains short throughout the life
