This is usually done from the back part of your head and implanted on the area which actually requires some treatment.

However, this will decrease over two weeks. It is advisable that you take proper care when you use any shampoo on your scalp gently for many days. This is very important when you use a shampoo immediately after transplanting hair. Touch your scalp when it is dry and do not rub the area of transplantation.

  3. Three to eight weeks – You will probably be experiencing hair loss, even after transplanting hair. This may last for some months after following the entire process. Your hair will start growing under scalp initially and this might not be clear to the person who has done transplantation at the first two months.

  5. Two months to six months – You may find that small hair is growing on your scalp after doing hair transplantation in the second month. There might be red bumps as your hair tries to break its surface. Your new hair will not be so very thick like your present hair right now and it may be longer by only some inches.

  7. Six months to one year – Your hair growth will be clear during six months to one year. It will slowly become thick and look just like your present hair.
