Healthy Hair Cycle –
Following an active growth phase of 5-6 years, the hair fiber passes through a transitional phase for 2-3 weeks into a rest phase lasting 30-90 days. The hair fiber then sheds and a new hair begins its growth phase in its place.
Hair Loss & Nerves –
-When a hair sheds naturally, we do NOT experience a painful sensation.
-When we pull on a healthy hair, however, we feel a distinct pinching pain.
-This is because our hair is connected by nerves!!
A healthy hair is connected by 7 synapses along a main nerve to the follicle, but when stress dominates the body’s total functional ability, deterioration of the nerve ensues.
The healthy life cycle of a hair fiber is ordered by and through a stable nerve connection. However, as it becomes overwhelmed by continued stress, a nerve may rest and eventually deteriorate and disconnect altogether.
1、Healthy active hair / Nerve is properly connected
2、Synapses start to short / Hair regresses, becoming thinner, its growth phase increasingly shorter.
3、Hair does not develop and becomes very fine, like peach fuzz.
4、Pore is still visible / Hair is potentially peach fuzz.
5、There is no longer even a pore.
