I lost a lot of hair in a few spots a few months ago due to stress and other health issues, but I think I was shedding too. Some long hairs with the bulb attached were coming out every time I did anything to my hair (comb, brush, wash, etc), but now I have next to no shedding and my scalp is really tender. Does the resting phase come after shedding, or does the growth phase? Because I cut some hair off about a month ago, and wasn't able to make a ponytail. Now I can. Also, how long is each phase supposed to last?
