Is Dandruff Occurring After Hair Transplantation Normal?

In the hair transplantation process, follicles producing hair strands are transplanted using hair strands.  Approximately 10 days after the procedure, the shells of the grafts fall off.  In the following days, extensions may begin to appear in the transplanted hair.  However, 3-4 weeks after planting, the hair strands of the transplanted follicles are shed as cut hair strands.  This event is called shock shedding after sowing.

Any trauma, dust soil, heavy sports, continuous sun exposure and excessive sweating are not recommended for the first month of hair transplantation.  One should protect himself against this situation.

Although the hair strands produced by the hair follicles in the treated area are quite resistant to shedding, they produce hair between 2 and 6 years and pass into the resting period.  After the rest period, it continues to produce hair between 2 and 6 years.  This cycle is repeated many times.  Shock loss of transplanted hair is considered one of these cycles.

The transplanted hair follicles begin to produce hair strands after shock loss, and some of the transplanted hair starts to grow out of the skin 3 months after the transplant.  In the following months, the number of hairs that come out and grow from the skin and therefore the density of the planting area continues to increase.

This situation continues until the 8th month, and between 8 months and 1 year, thickening of the transplanted hair strands and an increase in their natural appearance are observed.  Skin disorders such as dandruff and dermatitis that can be seen in this period should be treated, and it is necessary to be protected from repetitive traumas and constant exposure to sunlight.  For the treatment of dandruff and skin disorders, the vitamins and minerals needed by the hair strands should be taken and treatment methods should be applied to increase the circulation of the scalp.
