Losing hair post FUE - what is normal?
The cells that produce a brand new hair are likely still deep under the scalp. You need to get rid of these little hair to make room for the new hairs to come up in 2-3 months
Hairs fall out earlier with FUE than strip. What you have described sounds pretty much spot on - but give your surgeon's office a call if you are concerned.
Shedding grafts after hair tranplant
In general, I advise my patients to avoid touching the recipient area for the first 7 days. After 7 days it is ok to shampoo the recipient area and wash the grafts. Before then, I recommend that they mist the grafts with saline spray if there is any crusting/scabbing. At 6 days postop, it is likely fine and the hair shaft portion of your grafts are just shedding as they normally do. I would follow the postoperative instructions as outlined by your hair transplant surgeon and wait for growth (which typically occurs starting at 3-6 months and continues for up to 12-18 months).

Thank you for your question. The grafted hair will grow nicely for first 10-14 days then 50-75% of the hair will shed temporarily The small crusts around the micrographs will fall off naturally at around 10-14 days. You can wash your hair daily and gently with a mild shampoo. Try not to remove the crusts and allow them to fall off naturally. Discuss your concerns with your surgeon.

Scabs and itching after hair transplant
It is very common for the scalp to itch and for patients to sometimes inadvertently pick at their scalp. If you pick at your scabs this will damage your grafts. You have to retrain your self to either not itch at all or use cool compresses for the itching.
