View Full Version : shed hairs - shouldn't they be shorter not longer?

Why is it that when I shed hairs the length of each hair is as long as the rest of my hair and not shorter? As my hair grows longer between haircuts, so does the length of the telogen hairs.

When a folicle goes in to resting and the telogen hair falls out after three months, technically speaking shouldn't those telogen hairs be no longer than they were three months ago. I mean, if you get a few hair cuts in between then and now, shouldn't the hairs that fall out be shorter than the hairs that have grown out since then?

Anyone have any input on this? Thanks.
