good questions
hair grow from its root and it is known as papilla .it is very sensitive and active part which cause hair to grow from one stage to other stage
there are 4 stage of hair
hair regrow is possible in normal or physiological hairloss
while it is not possible in pathological cause.
hair is very complex structure
as it grow more it loose its strength
so if u have split ends or other problem ,better to cut it .
some study favor that cutting improve quality of hair
