Human hairs grow simultaneously throughout the year.

This phase is known as the resting phase of the growth cycle. In this phase, the hair follicle is completely inactive. During this phase, around 6% to 8% of hairs last for 100 days only in the scalp. The hairs completely fall off and again it’s repeated. Even you can experience Telogen effluvium if you are suffering from heavy fever or dieting. Your anagen phase is cut short and then enters this phase.
