Hair growth after hair transplant?

Is it possible that some of transplanted hairs stays at certain length (3 millimeters) or so after 10 months, not knowing if they ever had fallen out. Thanks.

If your hair does not grow past 3mm then it may be the old transplanted hair that never shed (or came out).

Hairs that remains

Some of the transplanted hairs might remain in their grafted position. At 10 months, they should wash out, but it you take a forceps and pull on it, it will come out with no pressure/ These little hairs never grow as they are remnants of the old hairs.
