One, two, three…

How much hair do I have on my head you ask?

If you’re counting, you either have very little hair or are in a desperate need of a hobby.

The average person’s head has up to 150,000 hair follicles (the entire adult body has 5 million). That number is constant over a lifetime; it’s hereditary, so only the thickness of your hair, its condition, and whether you lose the actual strands that come from those follicles can change.

Hair growth consists of three distinct phases. The growth phase, or anagen, typically lasts from 3-6 years, during which time the keratin hair shaft grows by about one-half inch per month. The transitional phase, or catagen, generally lasts 2-3 weeks, during which hair growth stops and the associated hair follicle shrinks and moves into the next phase. The resting phase, or telogen, lasts for 1-3 months, during which the hair shaft remains connected to the associated hair follicle and no further growth occurs.

Afterward, the hair shaft falls from the hair follicle, and in healthy follicles, the cycle moves into another growth phase. Roughly 90 percent of healthy hair follicles are in the growth phase and as many as 10 percent are in the resting phase at any given time.

If you are concerned about hair loss or you think your hair does not grow fast enough, talk to your Root Salon pro about our new Invati Hair Care system.

The shampoo removes build-up that can clog pores and renews the scalp with wintergreen-derived salicylic acid.

The conditioner contains soy protein and naturally derived amino acids to mimic hair’s building blocks. This helps to thicken hair from within with a weightless effect on finer hair.

The revitalizer helps you keep the hair you have longer using Aveda’s invigorating blend of Ayurvedic herbs, including ginseng and certified organic turmeric.
