Hair Loss and Trauma

The next stage is Catagen; during this stage hair growing stops and hair follicles becomes shrink. In the last and final stage named Telogen, hair falls and new hair starts to grow. Telogen stage last for 100 days.
But trauma mess all these stages. At the time of trauma anagen phase becomes shorter. So normal hair growth stage is hindered. On the other side Catagen and Telogen phase becomes longer for some hair shaft. So hair shedding becomes more than normal.
