I had a transplant over 10 months ago and my hairdresser has noticed my hair is either not growing (non transplanted hair) or is growing extremely slowly.
Do hair transplants stop hair growth in non transplanted sites?
Miniaturized hairs will grow slower than normal hair. If you are not taking Propecia (finasteride 1mg) and had a hair transplant, the degree of miniaturization may increase and slow down the growth of the natural remaining hairs that are genetically impacted. The stress of a surgery will increase the magnitude of miniaturization in hairs that remain after a transplant, slowing down the rate of growth of those hairs. Finasteride (Propecia) can often make the slow growing hairs that are miniaturized, grow faster.
