I want to have a hair transplant, but i read about the “Shock Loss” I read that i will have to wait 10 days post-op to be able to have a normal shower/to clean my hair normally. That 10 days it takes to the grafts to be held to the scalp. So in the first normal post-op if I have native hair besides to transplanted hair i will have shock loss because the native hair will not be normal clean, because the needles, because the perforations in the scalp.
My question is if i have a shock loss in normal hair, it will grow back again???? Do I have to be worry???
Shock loss is unusual in men that are taking finasteride (Propecia) prior to the hair transplant, as it minimizes the risk. If you lose your normal hair, it may grow back, but likely it will be miniaturized.. A good doctor can ascertain this on an examination of your scalp.
