White follicles while shampoo


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I am 6 days after transplant and began to shampoo my head a bit rougher to get out the scabbing. I have noticed a lot of white follicles come out (not with hairs, just white follicles)

 

Is this normal?

Was there blood with it? If not you should be okay. However, please understand that all grafts may not be fully secure yet till day 9 (Dr. Rasman & Dr. Bernstein study) I personally would be pretty cautious for at least 10 days to be on the safe side with your grafts. Always a good thing to correspond with your clinic about this. You are probably fine though, don't worry!

Yeah this is skin/scab. Nothing to worry about. When it dries it may feel like sand.

Dan,

 

No doubt what you are seeing are the crusts which are the dead and dried out tissue from the tips of the implanted grafts.
