Had a FUE about 3 years ago and was very happy with the results. Now, it seems like I have half the hair after the FUE and my hair gets very greasy – like one day after shampooing, it feels oily.
Could the transplant have transplanted extra sweat glands in addition to the hair which is causing this? Or is it because there is less hair now which causes more grease to be absorbed by the remaining fewer hairs?
Also, is it normal to have hair loss after FUE – I am thinking of going again, but if I have to do this every 3 years, not sure if its worth it. I am a norwood 6 so I’m assuming that whatever hair has shed in the last 3 years since the transplant is the actual hair (not the transplanted hair).
Oily or “greasy” scalp / hair is not necessarily related to a hair transplant surgery. You may want to see a dermatologist or follow up with your hair transplant surgeon for an exam.
Transplanted hairs may come with oil glands but it does not mean you would have “extra” glands. You can try using different shampoos.
Finally, it is not normal to lose transplanted hairs after surgery. As long as you have good donor hair (and not losing donor hair) your transplanted hairs will behave the same.
