Your hair enters a rest phase every 3 years and this resting phase takes 3 months. More hair strands than normal fall out during this time. After this resting phase, your hair follicles are supposed to grow the lost hair strands again. Most permanent hair loss types generally occur during the rest phase. For example, male pattern baldness hit most men during they are in their rest phase. When a person is hit by male pattern baldness during the rest phase, it takes more than 3 months to complete and even more hair than a normal resting phase fell out. Some people who recently had a hair transplant procedure may suffer from shock hair loss.
The scalp tissue is affected by the anesthetic drug administration and may fall out after some time. When it’s coincided with the resting phase, a high amount of hair strands may fall out during hair transplant recovery. Both shock hair loss and resting phase hair loss are not permanent. You may even feel like you’re out of hair but it’s completely temporary and your hair follicles will definitely grow new hair strands after some time.
If you recently got a hair transplant procedure, your wounded scalp will need lots of time to recover its lost hair strands. It may take up to 9 months for your scalp to recovery the hair loss because of shock hair loss and resting phase hair loss. Your scalp will gradually increase its hair density but you may also experience a temporary hair loss because of your immune system’s attack to your hair follicles. Since your hair follicles are targeted by your immune system, they may sometimes fall out and grow back.
All of these hair loss types are nothing to be afraid of and sometimes good because the new hair strands will be healthier and stronger than the previous ones that were damaged during your hair transplant procedure.
