Why we lose hair with age

Hair loss normally occurs in stages over a long period of time. However, a hair disease can make it go very fast.

As we get older, there is a gradual change in the hair follicle. The hair follicle shrinks and the production of hair strands is inhibited.

Eventually, the hair follicle becomes so stunted that hair strands fall off. This explains why we lose hair as we get older.

At the same time, the anagenic growth phase also becomes shorter with age. The anagen phase is when the hair strand grows. When we are younger, this phase is generally 2 – 10 years long.

Regardless, hereditary hair loss is a natural process but there are very good possibilities for treatment if it is started in time.

However, it is difficult to make the connection yourself to the stressful period. Up to 6 months after the hair has gone into dormancy, it falls off and you can experience severe hair loss in a short time.
