Many things impact the hair cycle and overall hair health on a profound level. Understanding key influencers empowers better hair care strategies.

What are the most important factors influencing hair growth?

Genetics, hormones, nutrition, lifestyle and environment each play a vital role in hair's ability to maintain a strong anagen growth phase for optimal length and density.


Inherited traits determine hair texture, rate of cycling and susceptibility to conditions like alopecia. This factor dominates growth potential.


Changing hormone levels through aging, pregnancy and menopause impact cycles. DHT sensitivity contributes to pattern baldness in men.


Obtaining proteins, vitamins, minerals like iron, zinc and biotin through whole foods optimizes follicles' metabolic functioning for healthy growth.


Managing stress, sleep, exercise and eliminating vices supports balanced hormone/chemical levels conducive to scalp and overall well-being.


Indoor/outdoor pollutants, toxic exposures, extreme weather and UV damage can induce or exacerbate hair loss over time if left unaddressed.


Using gentle hair/scalp products, limiting heat tools and colors also nourishes follicles to reach their predetermined growth potential.
