One of the questions that people who have and will have hair transplantation are most curious about is the question of “When will the transplanted hair grow”. People who have struggled with the problem of hair loss for a long time want to achieve results quickly from the moment they decide to have a hair transplant. People who want to have their new image as soon as possible look forward to the day when their new hair will grow. When will the transplanted hair grow? First of all, it should be clearly stated that although the hair transplanted immediately begins to grow after hair transplantation, it takes 1 year to get the desired natural state. Although this process varies from person to person, it can be shortened according to the structure of the hair and environmental effects.
It will be useful to have an idea about the structure and growth cycles of the hair in order to know how long your new hair will be in its best form and to fully understand this process with its reasons.

When we look at the hair structure, we see a continuous cycle. This cycle, which we can describe as growth, development, and falling, is valid for every hair. Although we do not notice it, this cycle process is repeated at short intervals throughout our life.
Each hair follicle relives this cycle every 4 to 5 months. Hair grows, develops, and falls off. Thousands of hair strands on our heads go through the same cycle in different processes. This is the main reason why shedding 100 hair strands every day is considered normal by experts. Every day, an average of 100 of your thousands of hair hairs enter this rupture and fall period.
The hair follicles of a healthy person who starts to grow hair after the rupture period and begins to grow hair repeat this cycle throughout their life.
The transplanted hair lives its first cycles, on average, in the same period. This shedding process, which takes place between the 2nd week and the 2nd month following the hair transplant operation, is called shock shedding or temporary shedding. This shedding, which can vary in duration according to the structure of the hair follicles, is a healthy event that should be experienced and indicates that your hair follicles have started a healthy life cycle.
The growth process of the transplanted hair follows a similar course to the growth course of natural hair. A healthy hair strand an average of 1 – 2 cm per month. can extend up to. This is 0.03mm per day. or 12-20 cm per year. It can also be expressed as between. Average hair growth rates vary from person to person. Nutritional habits, genetic structure, hair structure, psychological and environmental effects are factors affecting the growth rate of hair strands.
Immediately after the shock loss experienced after hair transplantation, the transplanted hair begins its natural growth process. The growth times of the transplanted hair and normal hair growth times are simultaneous.
Shock shedding, in other words, “temporary shedding” in hair transplantation, which we briefly mentioned above, is a process that is necessary for the hair strands to regain their normal growth form right after the first healing process. It can continue for 2-3 months after a 2-week period after hair transplantation. In this temporary process, newly transplanted hair follicles enter the process of shedding. Shedding is a part of the usual process in order for the hair follicles to settle in their place. Although the shock loss process varies from person to person, it can continue until the second month after hair transplantation. In this process, the person who has a hair transplant always has the following question: “When will the transplanted hair grow?” After hair loss, hair follicles begin to grow and grow identically to other hair follicles.
In the first 2 weeks after hair transplantation, small wounds in the newly transplanted area heal by scabbing. Transplanted grafts hold and adapt to their new places in this period. Immediately after the shock shedding, the hairs that enter the normal growth cycle are 1 – 2 cm per month. they grow up. In this process, the first-period hair hairs that have not yet regained their natural form may be weaker or weaker than normal hair hairs.
After the hair transplant operation, the hair follicles that survive the shock loss from the 2nd month enter a regrowth process. When will the transplanted hair grow?
By the 6th month, 45 to 80 percent of the hair follicles have now grown and the person’s hair has taken a new shape that can be easily noticed with the naked eye.
Hair follicles that have entered a normal growth cycle in the 8th month and after, begin to take their natural form, thickened, thickened. Curly hair syndrome, which may occur in some people, disappears after the 8th month. Hair has now become suitable for growing and shaping in accordance with its natural structure.
After the hair transplant operation, the growth times of the hair vary from person to person and are affected by environmental factors. The 1-year period we mentioned above is given by observing the maximum examples. It is up to you to shorten this process by following warnings and precautions.
If you want to get through this period faster;
These and similar simple suggestions are effective for your hair to grow and develop in the best way within 1-2 months.
Unfortunately, 4 out of 10 men and 3 out of 10 women smoke in our country. Smoking, which has the effect of causing serious damage in a wide period of time, also disrupts the healing process of hair transplantation operations.
Studies show that people who smoke are smoking after the operation despite the warning of the doctors. In addition to its other negative effects, smoking sabotages the immune system of the body and can prolong the healing process. Smoking not only affects the hair growth process but also prevents some of the transplanted roots from receiving the necessary acute nutrients. This situation may negatively affect the number of hair follicles that will grow after transplantation.
