The Brow Growth Cycle - iGlow Cosmetics

The Brow Growth Cycle

The hairs on our bodies – including our eyebrows – follow a natural growth cycle. The brow growth cycle can last for 12-15 weeks. We’re born with a number of hair follicles, and that number remains pretty much the same through life.

The eyebrows are not just there to enhance your beauty. There are different theories about them, and the two main functions commonly mentioned are: Communication through facial expression and prevention of sweat, water and debris from falling into the eye socket. We can shed up to 10 day.

Each individual hair is programmed to reach a certain length. A hair does however not always reach its full potential, and a hair follicle can be inactive. iGlow can give a boost to the already active follicles, as well as activate the ones that are inactive.

The three phases:
The brow growth cycle consists of three phases. If all of our eyebrows were following the same cycle, they would fall out at the same time:
The Brow Growth Cycle
1. Anagen (the growth phase): This is the phase where your hairs are growing. They will normally only grow to a certain length, and the process lasts between 30 and 45 days. This is the phase where iGlow can make your eyebrows reach their full potential.

2. Catagen (the transition phase): 
Catagen is a short transition stage that occurs at the end of the Anagen phase.The Catagen phase cuts the hair off from its blood supply and from the cells that produce new hair. The growth stops and the hair follicle shrinks. This is when some hair will shed and fall out. As soon as the follicle is complete in the Catagen phase then it will move on to the last phase. If a hair falls out or is being plucked during this phase, it won't start growing back until the phase has run its course. Normally within 2-3 weeks.

3. Telogen (the resting phase): 
This is the longest phase of the life cycle, and it typically lasts more than 100 days. Approximately 14% of the hair is in the resting phase. At the end of the Telogen phase the hair will eventually fall, and it normally takes 4-8 weeks before a new one starts growing.
