Hair normally grows in cycles of two to six years. Each hair grows about one centimeter per month during a cycle.
About 90 percent of your hair is growing, and about 10 percent is resting. After 2-3 months the resting hair falls out and new hair starts to grow in its place.
It is normal to lose up to 100 hairs each day. Talk to your doctor if you are distressed by excessive hair loss.

PRP is widely used in aesthetic medicine for male-pattern baldness, with receding hairline or thinning over the crown; and in alopecia in women, where the platelets may stimulate the dormant shrunken hair follicles.
