When Does the Hair Grow?

The question is one of the most common questions from the person undergoing a hair transplantation operation. When will the transplanted hair grow? The answer to the question depends on the person. However, it generally follows the following process.

After hair transplantation, shock release begins, and hair growing out of the sleep phase (telogen) starts to grow. Hair that grows to a significant length within 3-6 months achieves a visible form after 6 months. By the 8th month, the hair gradually thickens. At the end of the 12th month, the hair now completes most of its growth. After this process, the hair continues to grow in its normal cycle.

It should be noted that this growth may be slow in some patients; therefore, they may need to wait for the 12-month phase to be completed. As the tissue heals, new hair growth will continue. The key here is how long it takes for the cells that nourish the hair to send the signals to stimulate growth to new blood vessels for the transplanted hair. The length of this period also varies from person to person. Because the conditions that negatively affect blood flow vary depending on the person’s structure and situation. In other words, the question of when the transplanted hair will grow is shaped according to the person’s body.

Normally, each hair follicle experiences an independent hair growth cycle. So while some are growing, others are either resting or falling out. For this reason, there is no change in hair going through its normal course. The same amount of hair protects itself. The answer to the question of when the transplanted hair will grow after hair transplantation is actually answered within the framework of this cycle. This cycle, which goes in the form of Anagen (growth), Catagen (pause), Telogen (shedding), continues from where it left off after the operation. Generally, after hair transplantation, hair switches to Catagen and soon after to Telogen. The time in Telogen also varies from patient to patient.

First 15 days: In hair transplantation operations, the first 15 days are important when it comes to hair retention. Even though hair scabs continue after the first wash, the tissue has started to heal. It is necessary to continue to pay attention to any possibility of infection.
It is necessary to be very careful, especially during the washing process, which helps the scabs pass.

1 – 2 months: Shock release is mostly observed at this stage. So the hair enters the resting phase. Since it is a natural process, it is recommended to overcome the situation without stress. In addition, itching will occur in the transplantation area as the area begins to heal during this process; however, itching is not recommended.

2 – 4 months: It is noted that new hair grows after the shock has been overcome. Thus, the question “When will the transplanted hair grow?” Hair that begins to grow becomes visible by the 12th week. Red bubbles can also be observed on the head in this process, as hair follicles grow outside the skin.

It is important to know that the transplanted hair will fall within 2 to 8 weeks after hair transplantation for the question “when will the transplanted hair grow.” This condition, called shock shedding, is the normal course of hair transplantation operations.

Shock shedding, in short, is the loss of transplanted hair. The answer to the question of when the transplanted hair will grow is exactly after this process. Shock shedding is a normal condition in the hair’s normal cycle, in the transition to the new growth phase. Shock shedding, which usually occurs during the first month of the operation, does not mean that all hair has been shed. This process can take 1 or 2 months. There is no clear information about when it starts and ends. Knowing that the situation is temporary relieves people who have undergone hair transplantation.

4 – 6 months: The growing hair usually looks like a feather. It is curved, weak, and thin, but this is a normal process. By the 22nd week, there is a significant increase in transplanted hair. By the 28th week, the hair finally begins to thicken.

6 months and after: With this process, the person who has undergone hair transplantation will see the result of the treatment.
The person’s hair has finally reached the level where he can give it the shape he wants. Generally, the hair on top may grow later compared to the hair on the front. Therefore, the most definitive result after hair transplantation operations sometimes takes 1 and a half years.

Aftercare for Hair Transplantation

The area that has received new hair is very sensitive and must be protected from the sun. Shampooing begins to be used after the second day after the procedure. Shampoo is important to prevent scabs from forming around the hair. Also, be careful to wash your hands before touching the treated area to avoid possible infections.
