  • The hair cycle of the body hair 
  • 212.644.6454
  • The hair growth cycle of the scalp hair has an anagen phase of about five years and a telogen phase of about three months. 
  • In other words, hair grows for five years and then stays dormant for another two months before being replaced by new healthy hair. 
  • This means that body hair grows in a period of about six months to about 2 inch long, and they then rest on this length for some years. 
  • In scalp hair transplantation when hair is transferred from the donor to the recipient area, it takes about three months to start growing, a period, which is equivalent to their telogen phase.
