For the first 15 days the transplanted hair follicles may begin to grow as normal, and may continue to grow or may shed after the first month. If the donor hair continues to grow beyond one month then usually by the third or fourth month the hair will begin to shed bit by bit leaving visible results. This process varies from person to person due to individual attributes such as hair and follicle type. Good nutrition / diet and a healthy lifestyle will go a long way to aiding the recovery process. After the initial shedding occurs from month three to four, the hair will begin to grow back and by month six, 60% of the transplanted follicles will begin to grow back permanently, and by the twelfth months the hair will reach 100 % growth efficiency.
