After a hair transplant- what to expect
You are now 6 weeks post hair transplant and most of the hairs from the newly transplanted grafts will be lost and eventually new ones will grow in its place. It is all part of the process of new hair growth post-transplant. The usual timeline for hair loss is 4 to 8 weeks. Then at 2-3 months you will see new growth consisting of fine, thin hair. From 4 to 8 months the hair becomes thicker and coarse. By 12 months you will start to see the final result. Yes, you may use any shampoo you like.

These grafts will sooner or later shed. They are never a problem for new hairs that start to grow. Usually, there is a lag time between the time the hairs shed (2-8 weeks) and the time the new hair grows (3-8 months). IF for any reason, there is an overlap between the two, pay no attention to it for when the new hair grows, the old hairs from the grafts that may persist beyond 8 weeks, will eventually shed
