"Broken" transplanted hair is growing 4 weeks post HT

Recommended Posts

I had a HT just over 4 weeks ago. Most of the transplanted hair shed after 2 weeks. However, most of them didn't really shed. They just broke off at the skin surface. I was left with lots of black dots at the skin surface. I have a LOT of them, maybe 50% of the transplanted hair remained in the scalp as black dots.


Today I noticed that these broken hair seems to be growing again! The top of the hair is really thick, then it narrows to a thin translucent hair which grows thicker at the shaft.


Have a look at the attached. Is this growth, or is it preparing to shed? They seem to be to long to be shedding and I haven't seen this before on this forum.


It seems like the hair "paused" in the growing phase and then just continued to grow.

Some people tend to have better shedding than others. You may just be one of the lucky people whose hair skips the shedding phase and goes directly into the growth phase. It will thicken and mature over the following months.
