Growth Cycles Matter
Every hair goes through four stages during its life cycle: growth, transition, rest and shedding.
Hair can be different lengths for every individual and every area of their body. Your cycle is dependent on hormones, genetics, lifestyle and hair-related medical conditions. Understanding your body and your hair growth cycle will help you attain the best hair removal and skin care results.
Anagen (Active Growth)
The anagen stage of hair growth is the best time to remove hair. During this phase, the cells in the root of the hair are dividing rapidly, and the hair is growing. The papilla, (a knoblike vascular indentation of the bottom of the hair follicle on which the hair bulb fits) is attached to the hair during this stage of growth. When your sugar is applied against the direction of natural growth and removed in the same direction it grows, it leaves the follicle entirely empty and forces the growth to begin anew. Though follicles can recreate themselves, this forced ‘emptying’ of the follicle during this stage weakens the follicle and results in thinner finer regrowth. Consistently removing your hair during this phase will cause the hair follicles to go dormant, but it does not destroy the hair follicle.
