You will learn about the facial bones and facial muscles as well as the skin layers in the e-learning modules

Section 3- THE hair growth cycle

Each hair follicle lives in a cycle consisting of a long period of growth followed by a relatively short period of rest. During the rest period the hair is still attached to the hair follicle, but it is not growing. After the resting phase the hair is shedding, and a newer hair begins to grow, thus, starting a new hair growth cycle.
here is a genetic precision of each hair follicle to follow a particular pattern of growth and rest. Hair follicles are programmed to stop producing hair and spend more time in the resting stage with the progression of age. The growth cycle of a hair consists of 3 stages:to which you will learn in your e-learning
