Human Hair have three stages of growth i.e. Anagen phases Catagen phases Telogen phases. Each strand of hair on the human body is at its own stage of development. Once the cycle is complete, it restarts and a new strand of hair begins to form. The rate or speed of hair growth is about 15 centimetres or 6 inches per year.
