I also experienced shock loss behind the native grafts (even with using Fin before, during, and still on now as a preventative measure). I think this hair is growing back, but there is still significant shock loss apparent. Online I’ve seen reports that shock loss hair should come back anywhere from 3, 6, 9, to even a year after. Should I still be optimistic that this shock loss hair will grow back, if there still needs to be more regrowth at 7 months out? Thanks.
The hairs that are lost from the shock loss depend upon what type of hairs. Those hairs that were miniaturizing will usually not return even at a year. If you are on finasteride prior to the transplant, shock loss can often be prevented, but normal hairs that might be lost will come back usually in 6-8 months.
