The average life span of hair

The average hair strand lasts for two to six years.

Each strand grows approximately a centimeter per month during this duration.

Around ninety percent of the hair on your scalp is growing at any one time. The remaining ten percent, at any given time, is in a resting phase.

After about two to three months, resting hair falls off and new strands grow in its place.

It is about normal to shed hair as this cycle progresses.

However hair loss may become excessive for some people. Abnormal hair loss may affect men, women and children.
