Understanding Hair's Cycle and the Importance of Organic Hair Care

Posted by KatakamiYuki on

Did you know your hair undergoes a complete transformation approximately every seven years? The hair's growth cycle consists of different phases, including anagen, catagen, and telogen. Alongside this natural cycle, toxins from various sources can accumulate in your hair, highlighting the long-term impact of your daily choices on hair health. This blog will explore the significance of understanding the hair cycle and the benefits of switching to 100% organic hair care products for nourishing and revitalizing your tresses.

The Hair Growth Cycle: [1]
a. Anagen: Scalp hair remains in this active growth phase for two to six years, promoting the lengthening and thickening of your hair.
b. Catagen: This transitional phase lasts about two to three weeks as the hair follicle prepares for renewal.
c. Telogen: The resting phase, lasting approximately 100 days for hairs on the scalp before shedding and making way for new hair growth.

Long-term Impact of Toxins:
Toxins can persist in your hair for up to seven years. Consequently, daily choices, including exposure to coloring and perming agents, can damage the hair's cuticle, leading to brittleness, breakage, and premature aging. Switching to 100% organic hair dyes offers a solution by nourishing your hair with herbal nutrients, supporting healthier, more robust, and more vibrant hair from within.


Hair's Cleansing Function:
Hair is an excretory system capable of accumulating heavy metals and other toxins from various sources. Synthetic food coloring, preservatives, and heavy metals can harm your health. Hair's unique structure enables it to trap these toxic substances, serving as a cleansing function for the body.[2] Consequently, as hair falls out, it eliminates the accumulated toxins.

By opting for 100% organic hair care products, you can nourish your tresses with herbal nutrients and reduce exposure to harmful chemicals. Embrace the power of organic hair care to promote healthier, more vital, and more vibrant hair while supporting your overall well-being.
