Managing Unwanted Hair

The advice centre discusses the purpose and structure of hair, as well as the best treatment recommendations for everyone, regardless of cause.

Alongside this, we go deeper into various conditions, such as hirsutism and polycystic ovary syndrome that may be triggering excessive growth.

The Purpose of Hair

Adults have around 5 million hairs on average. Hair is a keratinised structure, with a primary purpose to protect – from injury, sunburn, foreign matter, insects and dust.

Types of Hair

There are three types of hair. Lanugo hair is found in foetal life, and is shed around the 8th month of pregnancy. Vellus hair is fine, rarely exceeding 2cm in length unless triggered into terminal hairs. Terminal hairs are those you want to remove, long and coarse, containing pigment.

Hair Structure

The hair is structured into 4 main parts. The hair shaft is the part that is visible above the skin’s surface. The root is embedded into the epidermis. The bulb provides nourishment for the growing hair. The arrector pili are muscles that contract when cold or scared, causing the hairs to stand up.

Hair Growth Cycle

Hair growth occurs in a cyclical pattern, with periods of growth and rest. The anagen phase is the growth phase, and approximately 85% of hairs are in this phase at any one time.
