Regarding eyebrows and eyelashes;
There are three phases of a hair follicle’s growth: Anajen(growth) phasis, Catagen(transition) phasis and Telogen(resting) phasis. At any given time, %85 of the hairs on your head are at their anagen phasis. During this time follicles produce new hairs and a yearly growth of 15 centimeters is obtained. Depending on the location of the hair on the body; length of anagen phasis can vary greatly; (i.e. for the eyelashes: 30 days, for the hairs: 6 years.) The longer a hair is in anagen phasis, the longer it can get. eyebrows and eyelashes stay in anagen phasis much shorter than hair hence they won’t have the chance to grow that long before they fall.
