Understanding the Hair Growth Cycle

Hair Growth and hair follicle vary all over the body.  Hair follicles with sebaceous/oil glands can be found in almost every part of the body.  What makes a difference is that in some areas such as the underarms, genital areas  and around the nipples in addition to sebaceous gland the hair follicles also have a sweat gland attached.  Their secretions are released through the oil glands and are more active during emotional changes and often these are associated with odors.
