Measuring is knowing

At the Intermedica Kliniek we have advanced equipment to accurately register and document your scalp and hair. Using trichoscan, we digitally record the progress of your hair loss or the effectiveness of the treatment during the treatment with overview and detailed images. This is how we determine the number of hairs per square centimeter and assess the quality of your hair. We repeat the tricho scan at annual check-ups, so that both you and we can monitor the progress of the treatment. We will also inform your GP and referring specialist about our findings. On our website you will find extensive information about hair diseases, hair disorders, hair loss, hair loss and baldness.

A 'normal' life cycle of a hair

A 'normal' life cycle of a hair

When you notice that your hair loss seems worse than normal, the question arises as to what normal hair loss is and when hair loss can be considered too much.

The normal life cycle of a hair consists roughly of three phases:

  • Anagen phase: the growth phase

  • Catagen phase: the resting phase

  • Telogen phase: the period of hair loss

Hairs are independent at different stages of the life cycle.

The anagen phase is the active growth period of hair, which lasts on average three to five years but can also be longer. In this phase, the hair shaft grows, with the hair follicle descending into the scalp, which is a type of vertical growth of the hair.

Hair grows on average about one centimeter per month. Some people complain that their hair never grows long, which is probably due to a short anagen phase and slow-growing hair. About 80 to 90 percent of the scalp hairs are in the anagen phase.

The catagen phase is a resting period during which no new hair is produced in the hair follicle. This phase only lasts a few weeks. About 1% of the scalp hairs are in this phase. The hair follicle moves up into the scalp, shrinks and becomes smaller.

In the telogen phase, there is normal hair loss. It can take three to four months for hair to loosen in the hair follicle and fall out. During this phase, new hair also begins to grow in the hair follicle, which is in the anagen phase.

A hair follicle goes through this life cycle approximately 20 times in a human life.

When assessing hair problems or hair diseases characterized by hair loss, we carefully look at the phase the hairs are in, and the quality of the hairs is also assessed, as well as the diameter of the exit point of a hair in certain conditions. A normal hair growth cycle includes hair loss, and it is normal for 50 to 100 hairs to fall out every day.

The brush test:
Measure how many hairs you lose every day

Do you want to know if you are dealing with excessive hair loss or hair loss? Then you can try the brush test. This involves brushing your hair with a clean brush for six days in a row, five minutes a day. Throw away the hair that is brushed out. Do this at the same time every day. On the seventh day, repeat the brushing and count the number of hairs left in the brush. This gives you an indication of the number of hairs that have fallen out in one day. If this number is concerning, please contact us. We are happy to help you!
