I had a hair transplant 12 days ago and I’m experiencing thinning hair. I keep running my hands through my recipient area and more shedding occurs. Should I stop this? Some of the shedding particles do have hairs in them and some are dark like a root. I still have some scabs remaining that I’m gently trying to remove in the shower. Would trying to rub these off dry be a bad thing? Thanks in advance.
At twelve days after hair restoration surgery it would be very unlikely that you could cause any damage to the follicular unit grafts. But, be careful because the remaining hairs in the recipient area are more fragile than they were prior to the hair transplant.
In order to avoid further hair loss be gentle with any remaining, original hairs in the recipient area.
