Should I cut my hair in the 8th month after a hair transplant surgery?

I asked a question couple days ago about how much time does the hair grow after a transplant surgery, im on my 8th and a doctor said that i should cut it on this time, so should i cut it all because i haven't since the surgery.. and to some of you suggesting i should contact my doctor.. well unfortunately he passed away months ago and i called the hospital and they couldn't help, that's why I'm asking you here! So can you please help. Thank you.

You can cut your hair any time you wish.  Cutting your hair nothing to do with hair growth.  If you are concerned it is best to contact your doctor.  If you cannot contact your doctor that would be a bad sign.

Cutting hair after hair transplant

A haircut will not affect the regrowth of your follicles.  It is ok to proceed with having your hair cut at this time.  Once the scalp has fully healed after a transplant the existing hairs can be cut.  

Cutting hair after transplant

You can harmonize your hair cut the very next day after the surgery and dye your hair two weeks after the procedure. So, yes, you can cut your hair in the 8th month after your surgery.

Cutting Hair After Hair Transplant

Thank you for your question.  After your hair transplant surgery, the implanted hair should fall out between 2-6 weeks, after this period you can do as you please.  Go ahead and cut your hair.
