Donor area patchy and still itchy after 2 weeks, have I been overharvested? (Photos)

At two weeks wearing hats is fine, even helmets to a certain extent. It's hard to tell from the pictures and because it's so soon the state of your donor area, all you can do now is ask your surgeon and/or wait a few more weeks for it to keep growing back. As for natural hair loss preventatives, there aren't many that are proven to work. Really the only post-op methods with actual studies confirming they can be effective are Rogaine and Propesia. But some doctors claim that lasers, certain salves, etc. help their patients.
It is best to contact your doctor for post surgical issues and care. It may be normal to have some itching.
