Loose Anagen

Loose Anagen syndrome is a benign condition primarily seen in women, where scalp hair is easily pulled out due to weak anchorage in the follicle. The hair may appear sparse, doesn't grow very long, and the scalp remains healthy. The exact cause is not clear, but it is believed to relate to a defect in hair anchoring. Diagnosis often involves a pull test and microscopic examination of the hair roots. Although dermatologists often state that there's no specific remedy, companies like XTC use modern treatments like Growth Factors+ to strengthen one's hair down to the root.
