Approximately 85% of your hair is in the growth phase, while the other 15% is in the resting phase.
So let's look at hair loss. “The main difference between male and female hair loss is that in women, hair follicles are rarely damaged, which means when the cause of the hair loss is addressed, hair can often regrow,” Barbara Seaman and Laura Eldridge write in the...
