Four Stages of Hair Growth and why they matter?

Our H.H Follicle Stimulant & H.H Vitamin Supplements have been formulated to combat hair loss by initiating re-growth. Like most hair loss treatments, our products begin to work immediately but results tend to vary from person to person. Some begin to see results as soon as 7 days while for others it can take over two months or longer depending on various factors explained in detail below.

Our products have been formulated to work by creating an ideal growth environment for your overall hair growth but it is very important to understand the various hair growth stages and the importance of patience and consistency during the process of using our products.

Hair Growth Cycle

It is vital to know that each strand of hair on the human body is at its own stage of development and once the cycle is complete, it restarts and a new strand of hair begins to form. The rate of hair growth is about 1.25 CM or 0.5 inches per month or about 15 CM or 6 inches per year.

The Four Stages of Hair Growth

Anagen Phase: This is a phase known as the growth phase and the period where hair physically grows at an approximate of 1.25 cm per month.

Hair begins in the papilla and can last from two to seven years. The longer the hair stays in the anagen phase, the longer it will grow. During this phase the cells in the papilla divide to produce new hair fibres resulting into the follicle burying itself into the dermal layer of the skin to nourish the strand. Because hair is continuously growing during the anagen phase, the length of this phase of the hair growth cycle is determined by the maximum length of your hair and for most people this is 18 to 40 inches.

Catagen Phase: This is also known as the regression or transitional phase where the hair follicles shrink in size, detach from your skin and starts the process of falling out which takes around 2 weeks. Although hair in this phase "detaches" from the skin, it usually does not fall out until the new hair pushes it out from the scalp.

Telogen Phase: This is known as the resting phase and in this phase the follicles remain dormant for two to five months . Most people have about 10 to 20% of their hair in this phase but more hair shedding can be temporarily triggered by stress and other health related conditions.

Telogen Exogen Phase: This is known as the shedding phase .In this phase the old hair completely detaches from the scalp and falls out which is replaced by new hair completing  the hair growth cycle, giving you replacement hairs for all of the hairs lost during the catagen, telogen and exogen phases of the growth process. 

The hair growth process just like other important processes in your body can be interrupted and affected by external factors like stress, malnutrition and illness. For example the lack of protein in the body  can cause hair to enter the telogen phase prematurely resulting in excessive thinning and hair loss. Some studies also show that stress can inhibit hair growth by causing hair to enter into the catagen phase prematurely (telogen effluvium). The best way to prevent this stress related damage or hair loss is to eat a healthy diet and consume vitamins like our Liquid Hair Vitamins for healthy, thick and strong hair.

I live in nigeria and I love your product and where can I get it and how much thanks.


I was informed that I have female pattern baldness which was caused by the menopause. I have tried various products but as mentioned by the other lady, the patches where the skin is like a baby’s bottom will not grown back. I have today received the Hair Follicle Stimulant so I look forward to seeing some improvement in the next few month :-)

I have been suffering from frontal alopecia since 6 years ago. I saw a dermatologist he put me on medication Hydroxychloroquine sulfate 200mg 1 pill a day and dermovate scalp application for a year, the alopecia stopped progressing and he gave me the green light to do hair implants around the hair line and the sides above the ears, were I have the alopecia, was very happy and I did the implants , unfortunately after one year I lost the hair implant s and I am back to square one, the dermatologist put me again on the same medication till now, I am wondering if your product will be of benefit for me, and if yes which product will help my condition? Please let me know. Thank you.

Thank you Hilda for this amazing product. I have been really busy recently and couldn’t drop any review since. I am seeing some changes in my hair growth. I use both supplement and cream.
I have tried so many products in the past and nothing works. I have hypothyroidism which leads to hair loss. I have lost hope to be honest due to the condition and I’m also taking levothyroxine every morning but i tried to give time in between your supplement and levothyroxine.
I will encourage people not to give up and to be consistent. I am guilty of consistency especially when it comes to following your recommendation with hot water and the use of shower cap which is a bit uneasy for me due to my daily schedules but i still see some improvement.
I have been using your products since around June last year. I only have problem with hairline so i don’t use much cream all over.
Thank you once again Hilda and her team. May God bless the work of your hands.

I am happy with my progress so far. I started seeing improvement on my edges 2 weeks after I started using your products. This is even after dermatologist told me my hair will never grow back. It is still a long journey to full hair growth but I am confident. Thank you for creating these amazing products Hilda.

Miss Tracey December 27, 2020

I have been using the special deal for 2 and a half months now and I can confidently say I have started to see some positive results. Your products are the only products that I can say have helped with my alopecia for 10 years. I have tried all kinds of oils and nothing worked. You are a blessing and God is using you to help many with your products.

Rebecca. A December 25, 2020

I have purchased and used your product and within 3 weeks I have noticed new growth to my hair sides and crown. I was experiencing itching scalp but since using this product all itching has stopped. I would definitely recommend this product.

Winnie December 25, 2020

Your products are amazing and it is indeed true patience, patience and lots of patience. I have been using your products since April when you first launched and I could not be happy. I did not have edges for over 20 years
. I tried so many products (oils, minxodil, finasteride) but they did not work. A friend of mine who used your products and saw results suggested I also try your products. That is the best decision I have ever made and I am very thankful for you and your team and I am also proud to support this amazing black woman. You have a customer for life. Thank you Hilda you brought my confidence back.

Grace December 23, 2020

Jessie December 23, 2020

I never stopped using the product. I purchased 3 of 100ml HH hair stimilant. My hair has body and there has been improvement around my hairline. I am very happy with the product and as mentioned one has to exercise patience.
