Sunburn on transplanted hair. Will it grow back?
Doctor Answers 6
If you blistered or had sunburn to your scalp it probably would not affect the transplanted grafts that is 8 month old.

At the 8 month period I doubt you would damage your grafts. Nevertheless, undue sun exposure on any area is not ideal. Please wear appropriate sun protection.

It's really hard to answer this. Severe sunburns with blisters do have the possibility of injuring both the transplanted and original hair follicles. Transplanted hair is not more vulnerable after 8 months post-OP. However, most of the time it will grow back. Good care to avoid scalp infection will be the most important thing now. Wash your hair everyday gently.
