Results vary, and serums are most effective when used as part of a comprehensive hair care routine.
There are four major phases of hair growth, renewal, and fall. Let’s understand this cycle for better hair results-

Catagen phase - This is the phase where the hair growth slows down and the hair follicle shrinks down.
Telegon phase - In this phase, the hair lives its entire life span which leads to the natural stoppage of hair growth causing hair fall.
Neogen phase - This is the stage where the hair is reborn and starts regenerating its growth.
