Ive read most grafts should shed way before now im at 2 months and still have about half i had a big shed at 4 weeks then nothing.


It seems like a good thing but im not sure could they be dead because they dont seem to be growing has anyone else had this.

It's variable. Some take up to 3 months to shed; some continue growing and never shed at all. It really depends on the state of the follicle when it was implanted into the scalp (ie anagen (growth phase) versus telogen (resting phase)) and whether or not it settled into a resting state and shed. Either way, it shouldn't affect the final results.


Good luck!
