I received a 3100 graft procedure a little over 5 months ago in the 1/3 frontal area. I see a lot of growth, but also noticed that there are areas that still have the short, blunt hairs that were originally in the follicle when it was transplanted. They never grew, nor ever fell out. If I take a tweezer to them, the hair just slips right out, and has a bent area where it’s in the scalp. Also there are black bumps at the scalp that if pulled with a tweezer, keeps getting longer and longer until it comes out of the scalp. No pain, just seems like dead hairs. Can you “shed” some light on any of this?
I am sure that when you pluck these short hairs, you will not see any bulb with them. These reflect remnants of the old hairs and they are not growth from new hair follicles. I see this in a few patients and they usually fall out with good washing.
