Telogen Hair= Club Hair
Hair grows and hair sheds in 3 phases: anagen, catagen and telogen.
Telogen hairs are hairs that typically fall out of the scalp, accumulate in our brushes and combs and flow down the sink and drains.
About 50-60 hairs each day loosen up from the scalp and are officially done their cycle. It's normal to lose more on a "shampooing day" (ie 100-120) because these hairs are more readily loosened from the scalp.
