Shockloss of existing hair
Anyone had experience of shockloss to existing hairs around the transplanted hair area?
Had a lot of hair in that area but now there gone.

Ho yes have I experienced that. It was really disturbing. It's only about a month and a half in and it's pretty horrid to look at. Takes a toll mentally.

Only month 2 its exactly 2 months and even after this short time my shockloss is growing back.even some of my newly transplanted hair is are coming through even at this early stage,maybe it’s the start of oral minoxidil who knows,exciting times ahead

Good to hear the shock loss is recovering and the early growth is very promising.

Ok exactly 6 months now and my hair has definitely improved still a little thin on the crown but I can feel a lot of little hairs coming through so hopefully it will thicken up.

The first image was about 12 years ago before I started my journey,I had 2 strips after that i continued to lose hair as I wasn’t on any medication because of sides.then the last one was my fue which was last November.that last photos are 6 months out today.
