    You can always microtrim. I think you posted once about your hemline before. You really weren't a fan of fairytaling, I remember. If it bothers you, then maybe it's time to do something about it?

    I saw this video on YouTube about anagen phase, but could not understand anything lol

    Natural taper or more like natural hair damage (not THE damage as split ends). Check these 2 links for details:

    I doubt you'll find out the cause, TBH.

    I also don't think you can do anything about it, bar microtrimming to let the thickness travel down slowly. Plenty of people do that here. Thickness *can* travel down, you can either let it keep growing, the thinness will then just "move" itself down. Or, you can stay at the length you're at and microtrim to let the racer hairs catch up. HTH!

    Hair follicles have different stages of the growth cycle - anagen is the growing phase, which takes the majority of the growth cycle for scalp hair. (I'm not entirely sure what all the rest of the stages are, though I know telogen is a resting phase once the hair has completely grown, while it's still attached; after which it sheds.)

    Even if someone were to shave their head to start all over again, each follicle is in a different stage of the growth cycle, so the hairs would regrow both at different rates and for a different length of time! And if you think about it, even if (hypothetically) every hair were to grow at the same rate and with synchronised cycles, there would be a natural layering because the strands along the front hairline would hang down the back appearing 'shorter' than the ones near/along the nape. If that makes any sense [I can see what I mean in my head, but don't have exactly the words.]

    Also everything about breakage (an occupational hazard when growing hair!) and and all of its causes still applies, just different growth cycles/rates and distribution of the hairs on one's head mean that it is impossible to grow without natural taper of any kind
