After 3-4 months after my fue hairtransplant i can still feel alot of short little hairs at my doner area that are not growing. Will these hairs start growing or are those dead grafts? Also the area is itchy sometimes.

Short hairs in donor area

There should not be short hair in the donor area unless these are transected grafts which probably will not grow.
