When will the transplanted hair grow? How will the hair grow month after month? Why is the transplanted hair fall out? When does hair fall out? What is the hair growth process? When will my hair grow after hair transplantation? Such questions are asked by many people. Every person who wants to have healthy hair questions the hair transplantation process. We will try to answer these questions.
The healing process after hair transplantation takes a period of 1 year. This process includes nutrition of hair follicles, healing wounds and hair loss.
It continues as new hair begins to grow and then these hairs get used to their natural growth cycles. Finally, it can be summarized as the hair’s thickening and strengthening. In order for the transplanted hair follicles to adopt their new places, they should not be pressed, injured and supported by other factors such as nutrition and rest.
After the first ten days of intense healing and drug treatment, the process is supported, the “crusting”, which can be seen less and more intensely in some people, gradually disappears according to the head structure together with the washes. While continuing the washing process, which enables the crusting to pass faster, the sensitivity of the scalp and the planted hair should not be forgotten, and the washings should be done as recommended by your doctor.
With the onset of the healing process, itching is observed in the scalp. In this process, it is absolutely necessary not to scratch the area where hair transplantation is performed. Although the hair appears to be 1 to 2 mm longer, these hairs will fall out shortly.
Shock (Temporary) Hair Loss
Shock shedding is an issue that people who have hair transplantation are irritated. During this period, sudden hair loss and redness in this area, perforated scalp, sparse hair wire appearance disturb patients.
In the third week of the hair transplant operation, it is observed that 80 percent of patients experience shock loss. Although this spill frightens most patients, it is considered normal and is a temporary process. It is known that spills can take up to 45 days, even if there is no exact date for how long it will take.
It should be remembered that the intensity and duration of shock spillage varies from person to person. In some patients, the hair strands that are completely shed in 1-2 weeks and enter the renewal process continue to be shed for 1-2 months in some patients.
The main reason for this process, which we can define as the temporary hair loss after hair transplantation, can be stated as the growth cycle of the hair root and the short-term shock experienced during the transplantation process.
Each hair strand has 3 phases as “Growth, Pause and Shedding”. Hair roots start a new growth phase for a new hair hair right after the shedding phase.
One of the most important factors of shock shedding is that this cycle is being taken over. Immediately after the hair loss process, the hair follicles move to other stages and the natural cycle begins again.
