Transplanted hairs grow as per the natural cycle of the hairs. After the follicle is transplanted and once it has been taken up, they generally start to shed as the grafted follicles went into telogen phase. This period generally goes on till 8-10 weeks, after which the follicles enter the anagen or the growth phase. During anagen phase the transplanted hair grows and remain in growth along with other hairs for around 2-6 years. It is this stage when the patient starts seeing the growth and start to visualize the initial result of the procedure.
Catagen stage starts after this where the hairs start to become dormant so this is essentially a transition phase. This stage is generally of short period and finally the hairs move into telogen phase .
