ndubya wrote: Hey supersmooth,I'm in the same stage as you, 11 weeks out from my fue. I wish someone would answer  your question about the stalled hairs. I have them too. I have read that you are supposed to remove them with tweezers(actually only from one clinic on a forum).I pulled a few out the other day and they came out pretty easily. I was surprised at how long they were under the skin. Some had the j shape that you described.c;;9I tried to get in touch with the clinic, but have not recieved a response.Anyone here know If you are supposed to remove stalled hairs??

Yes spikey stiff stalled hairs - I have pulled a few out. They have just been sitting there not growing properly or shedding! - They actually just slide out easily and I don't feel pain when pulling them - I guess they have to fall out eventually for new hair to grow lol!? Don't want ingrown hair.

But the clinic said to let them fall naturally. I have a strange looking head of hair now with natural hair (sides and donor) very thick and the island not growing back- I then have some implanted hair that has grown over 1 inch then, wiry stalled hairs along with these new very fine tiny colourless hairs - (I think that's the start of the new growth do you!? - These hairs are like those of the back of your hand, or on your fingers or arms etc

Thanks for sharing your experience. Do you have pics?

Just attached a photo taken a few weeks ago of some stalled hairs - implanted that came out at once.

I can see very, very fine hairs which are tiny growing out of the implanted zone - hopefully they will thicken up as time goes by.

The implanted hairs are still shed and some have continued to grow where as others have stalled - what happens to those hairs???

I don't really notice any difference, because like every other person - I see myself every day when I shave /wash etc but someone said they have noticed something since January. - I guess you can see for yourself in the previous photos.

My pic - you can see the implanted zone clearer now - still looks pink though and a right mess! ;;::::/ is this normal 2.5 months post surgery? I have my 3 month check up next weekend so will update you.

who gave you the advice to pluck out stalled hairs? that's a new one for me I have never heard that before, I wouldn't think the pulling of any hairs would be a very good idea.

I read up on it - some pluck them out. Well, if they are sitting there or stalled and not growing then they will only cause inflammation of the scalp or pimples so best for them to dislodge or pluck them out to make room for new hair to grow.

Something interesting to read:

Hi Friend 
Everything seems to be looking  as expected another few weeks and things will start to move on a bit , as for stalled hairs dont worry about them when your washing your hair dont be afraid to give the scalp a good wash you can make small circles and apply pressure that normally removes topside hairs that have not shedded , its not a problem as you will see in a few weeks the hairs will grow and I am sure you will be a happy man all the very best and thanks for keeping us updated 

Have agreat day

Thanks Daz.

Well, I hope so - but why are some hairs stalled and not growing? Why didn't they shed like they should have done?

Also with these very tiny, wispy fine hairs - is this the new hair? will they just become thicker and more distinctive? Right now I can hardly see them...unless I took a flashlight torch. Also what happens to the transplanted wiry spikey hair that hasn't shed and has kept growing?

I have my 3 month check up next week.:::C

It is a long 3 months LOL

Thanks - I will look at your gallery. - but having problems viewing your profile - you have so many photos and I don't know which is you!?

So these wispy, tiny, fine hairs is the start of new growth that will thicken up as time goes by!?

Have a good weekend! :)

the wispy hairs are definitely the signs of new growth mate! I had the exact same around the 10/11 week mark...they will turn dark and thicker shortly so just hang in there! It's a horrible time I know so much worry about what's going on...you are almost at the point where you can expect to see new growth so the next couple of months are going to be exciting for you I'm sure!

Thanks well I am at week 11 now.

The sheet /guarantee post surgery doesn't talk about the type of hair all it says is that hair will start growing after 3-4 months post surgery etc. But they didn't mention that the new hairs will by wispy and very fine - almost like the hairs on your wrists and back of fingers or arms etc.

Look forward to seeing this very fine wispy hairs thicken and grown and become more dense etc. So I can convince others especially my parents that the transplanted FUE 6000+ hairs was money well spent and more importantly convince myself.

I am sure you can understand what I am thinking, because I still have stalled hairs and some implanted ones that have not yet shed? - (like why am I growing these thin, wispy feather like hairs?). Why are they so tiny, why are they not thicker.. etc! Is it old hair or what? But now you and Daz have confirmed to me that it is the start of new growth which puts my mind at rest. Time will tell.

I did pluck out a few stalled implanted hairs - it's actually around those where I was getting pimples and where it was very itchy. In the end if they are not going to grow or shed then they may as well disappear to make room for new hair growth ha! The stalled hairs just slide out! - BUT does this mean the graft failed? Just wondering if there is a reason why they didn't shed and are stalled. - Also the implanted zone is still pink and itchy as is the donor area. What month are you post surgery? Does your scalp still itch?

Exciting times and I am sure it will be well worth the wait and money!:::C Will improve my confidence and above all feel happier and look forward to doing some cool hair styles like when I did have very thick hair.

This was a few years ago with Penn & Teller in Las Vegas - BUT I used Nano fibre concealer so the hair loss is merely noticeable. haha!

Will update you again soon & thanks for sharing your thoughts.

I have a question....anyone?

What happens to this island (tuff of hair)? as you can see and may have seen from the photos pre-op I had the island effect like TIN TIN - this is my natural hair however it is thinning! 

I have notice that since the surgery it (natural hair in the island circle) has not really grown back very fast and seems thinner and I know it may thin and my natural hair loss will continue but I was wondering if my new transplanted hair will grow the same length as my natural hair? - circled it as you can see. - Just wondering your thoughts - does this blend into the same growth speed as your natural hair does or vice-versa?c;;9

Your donor area looks very good for such a large amount of grafts.

So anyone? - Does the new (fine) hairs grow the same speed as my natural hair would? - Bear in mind that my natural hair in the island (middle) there is still thinning!?>
