When it comes to identifying potential problems with your hair, it's useful to understand the hair growth cycle. Hair loss, hair thinning and problems with hair growth occur when your growth cycle is disrupted.

There are natural ways to speed up hair growth, such as leading a healthy lifestyle and trying to keep stress levels to a minimum. With today's busy lifestyles this is not always easy, but an adequate amount of sleep and exercise will help to control your stress levels. Physical activity has always been recognised as being helpful and this activity will encourage your body circulation to your scalp which in turn will promote hair growth.

Your diet is the first thing you need to take a good look at if you want your hair to grow quickly and healthily; Eat the right diet and your hair will reap the rewards. The right diet means protein-rich foods that are high in healthy vitamins and minerals (Vitamins A, B, C, and E, iron, selenium, zinc, copper and magnesium). If you are deficient in some vitamins or minerals, this is terrible for hair growth and stimulation and it can lead to hair loss or thinning.

What is the Hair Cycle?

It’s very important to understand the hair growth cycle in order to recognise and understand many of the problems you can encounter with your hair.

The hair growth cycle consists of three phases: Growth (Anagen), Resting (Telogen) and Transition (Catagen).

The Anagen Phase is the growing period of a hair follicle. Your hair grows around half an inch a month, and faster in the summer than in winter. The growth phase, or Anagen Phase, lasts an average of 3-5 years, so a full-length hair averages 18 to 30 inches.

At the end of the Anagen Phase, your hair enters the Catagen Phase. This is a short transitional phase that lasts approximately 10 days. The Catagen Phase is the intermediate period of hair growth and Hair follicles prepare themselves for the resting phase. It lasts around 1-2 weeks. During this phase, the deeper portions of the hair follicles start to collapse.

Lastly, your hair enters the Telogen Phase, a resting phase when your hair is released and falls out. The follicle then remains inactive for 3 months and the whole process is repeated.

Each hair follicle is independent and goes through the growth cycle at different times, otherwise all your hair would fall out at once. Instead, you only shed a certain number of hairs a day – up to 80 hairs on a healthy head of hair.

How HairMax works

HairMax energises and stimulates hair follicles in the Catagen (transition) and Telogen (resting) phases causing a new Anagen hair to be formed.

HairMax provides energy for healthier hair follicle stimulating more rapid hair growth and stimulates the root to produce a new healthier hair follicle. HairMax helps to reverse the process of miniaturisation and stimulates the growth of denser, fuller, healthier hair.

HairMax works through a process known as Photo-Biostimulation which is similar to photosynthesis which causes growth in plants. HairMax delivers this therapeutic, nourishing light energy to your hair follicles to stimulate growth factors, extend the growth phase of hair, and help restore a healthy hair growth cycle resulting new hair growth with increased density, fullness and vibrancy.
