The little white thing you see at the end of the hair is probably the dead root of a hair that's
finished its 3 year life and is supposed to fall out. The bulb that you see is the determining
factor that the hair is falling out, not, breaking off.
Everyone has approximately 100,000 hairs on there head. Normally, about 100 scalp hairs
reach the end of the resting phase each day and fall out. New hairs grow at approximately
the same rate that the old hairs shed. Eyebrows and eyelashes have a growing phase of 1 to
6 months. Scalp hairs have a growing phase of 2 to 6 years. Hair recycles itself every 2 to 6
years and is genetically programmed to grow and shed. Your hair follicle adheres to a
genetically programmed schedule that includes growth, resting and hair shedding; then the
regrowth of new hair. During its lifetime, a human hair goes through three stages:

Stage 1 - Anagen (Growing Phase) Scalp hair follicles enter the hair growth phase and
synthesize hair for a period of 2 - 5 years at a rate of about 6 inches (15 cm) per year. Thus
a hair 2 feet (60 cm) in length would be about four years old at the end, and only a month or
so old near the scalp. In general, 85% of the scalp hair is in the anagen phase. Eyelash
follicles, and the follicles for hair on your arms and legs, have a growth stage lasting only a
few months; and the resultant hairs that they produce are short.
Stage 2 - Catagen (Transitional Phase) This is a short transitional stage. The follicle becomes
physically smaller as the lower portions of the follicle are absorbed by the body, and ceases
to make hair.
Stage 3 - Telogen (Resting Phase) a resting stage lasting two to four months, after which it
sheds the hair shaft. Only 15% of your hair is resting at any one time. The hair follicle relaxes
its hold on the hair shaft bulb, and the bulb of the hair shaft moves closer to the surface of
the skin. Over time the hair shaft loosens and eventually the hair is shed. At the end of the
resting stage, the old hair falls out, the follicle enlarges, and a new growth cycle starts and a
new hair shaft begins to grow.
