The shedding of the transplanted hairs is usually over at this stage. Do check with the clinic on the use of DermMatch, go with whatever their post op instructions are.
Myself, I used it on my FUT donor closure where I suffered shock loss. 
Let us know what the clinic advises.
Good luck.

Hello everyone, sorry for the long silence, but not much happened in the last couple of months. I am now at exactly 3 months post-op and I'm happy to report that I can see many new hairs sprouting along the hairline. I can also see some new hairs behind the hairline, but the density seems to be much lower... Obviously, the new hairs are very very short (1mm at most) so I'm afraid none of this will be visible in the pictures below. 

Not sure how to interpret the difference between the hairline and behind it. It may be that the hairs I'm seeing are mostly the ones I lost because of shock loss, so the difference may be due to the fact that pre-op I already had many more along the hairline than behind it. Or it may simply be a false impression, as it is harder to spot a 1mm hair behind other hairs. Anyway, time will tell. I'm staying optimistic.

As for the donor shock loss on my right side, as you can see, it is still very evident. Longer hair actually makes it more visible. Here as well I can observe a few small hairs sprouting. In addition to being very short, they also appear to be very thin — much thinner than those I see in my recipient zone — so I reckon it's impossible to see them in the pics. I hope that in a month or so they will be providing some coverage over there!

New growth is a positive sign that things are beginning to happen. Your shock loss is lingering on, maybe it is beginning to grow in the same cycle as the transplanted grafts.
Has the doctor recommended anything to help the shocked area?

Hi Tomislav.
Good to hear you`re seeing some growth at 3 months, hopefully, you`ll get a good spurt in the recipient and shocked area.I can imagine how difficult it must be to conceal. Not sure if you`d be interested but BHR Clinic Spain offer SMP, a small touch up in the shocked area could help conceal it. Maybe ask the doc if this is a viable option for you.

Hello Tomislav.
Thanks for reporting you`re beginning to see growth. The shocked area is taking time to recover, have you witnessed any improvement these past weeks?

Definitely yes. I'll be posting pictures in ten days when I hit the 4-months mark, but the few hairs I had in the bald patch are now thicker and many more hairs are appearing. So I'm quite optimistic about the donor shock loss. If it goes on like this, in a month or so the shock loss should be no more visible.

Unfortunately I am a little less optimistic about the recipient zone. The new hairs seem to have stalled at 1 mm, and they are very sparse, especially behind the hairline. Their lack of lengthening really puzzles me. A few days ago I've shaved a few hairs on the front of my hairline to check how fast normal hair grows, and to see whether they catch up with the new hairs. We'll see how that goes.
  
Is slow growth (1-2 mm the first month) of new hair normal?  Has anyone here experienced this?

Hi Tomislav.
The hairs could be stalled hairs, meaning they are simply a hair shaft sticking in the tissue. With a pair of tweezers, get hold of one and see if it slides out without any force. I had stalled hairs in my crown for months, kept feeling the short stubbles and knew they weren`t growing. I had someone pull them out, then the normal growth of the new graft appeared as normal.

Good to hear the shocked area is beginning to recover with the hairs thickening up, hopefully not much longer to wait.
all the best.
Bm.
