Is shockloss permanent? Seeking information on shockloss.

Recommended Posts

When transplanting new follicles between native thinning hairs, they are prone to shockloss... is this shockloss permanent to the thinning hairs or will they come back from being dormant and continue to grow out for years to come, until they excessively minituarize? 


Thanks in in advance for any information

It depends, some hairs that are strong may grow back, the weak hairs probably won’t. That’s why it’s crucial that hair loss is stabilized prior to having surgery. 

I do not provide medical advice, recommendations, all responses are my opinion.

The diffused thinning pattern is almost always the highest risk for shock loss.  The hair that is not in an advanced diffused state usually come back yet the ones that are greatly diffused usually do not.
