  • The "hair cycle" has three phases: Anagen Phase - growth phase Approximately 85% of all hairs are in the growing phase at any one time. 

  • Telogen Phase - resting phase The resting phase follows the Catagen phase and normally lasts about 5-6 weeks. 
  • Hair growth from the transplanted follicles generally begins at two-and-a-half to three months. 
  • This percentage can be as low as 70% to 75% if regrowth doesn't begin until month four.
  •  Transplanted hairs will generally continue to mature during the course of the first year of growth. 
  • Hair grows approximately 10 cm per year, and any individual hair is unlikely to grow more than one meter long.
