What to Expect From Your Hair Transplant Results After 5 months
Your hair is now getting ready to enter what is known as the “hair bursting” stage. At the moment, you are experiencing new hair growth in what is unfortunately known as the “ugly duckling” stage due to the appearance being somewhat patchy.
Most of your hair has completed its resting cycle, and hair growth is visible from the third month onwards. This hair is fine, transparent, and short. They are not yet showing an increase in density and are lighter than your natural colour. They will be growing at a normal rate of about 1cm a month.
As you enter the 5th month, you will start to notice a lot more strands continuing to come out.
Now you can start to style your hair in different directions. In time, hair strands will thicken depending on the haircut, and the new hair will start to resemble your natural hair colour. At the end of the 5th month, the hair growth rate is approximately 30%.
There are rare exceptions where a person may not encounter shock hair loss in the first four months. These people may have hair loss in the 5th month. This may result in some acne on your scalp if this is the case for you.

The hair strands gradually grow as you approach the six-month mark. It is likely that the first strands of hair will be curly! Straightening them with straighteners can damage the hair you’ve worked so hard to grow. It gradually returns to its normal state over the next few months.
For some people who have had hair transplants, this can be a worrying time because they aren’t seeing the results they expected. You should be aware, however, that successful results will take at least six months.
Effects from the surgery
Because your scalp has healed completely at this point, the side effects of your hair transplant after 5 months are minimal. This is one of the advantages of having your surgery at IdealofMeD. As we only offer the most medically advanced methods of Sapphire FUE and DHI, your scarring is kept to an absolute minimum and there is little, if any, scarring.
In short, the only side effect from the surgery you are experiencing now is hair growth.
Factors influencing your hair transplant results after 5 months
Your hair transplant is still vulnerable, and there are some considerations that you should keep in mind during the fifth month. The following can influence your hair transplant:
- You should still be gentle when brushing your hair. Anything too rough might pull out the hair strand from the follicle.
- Be careful of bumping or knocking your head, especially in the recipient area.
- Do not use a clipper or razor on or too close to the recipient area yet.
- Avoid extreme heat and cold until after the 6th month. This includes places like saunas and walk-in freezers.
- Continue to protect your head from too much sunlight.
- You should still be using your personalised hair care products from IdealofMeD.
- PRP’s injections can be done in the 3rd – 5th month.
When you look in the mirror
Because the individual hair shafts continue to grow at different times due to each follicle’s individual hair growth cycle, it is possible that you may still be experiencing some patchiness in the recipient area of the scalp. However, most people are enjoying an average of 30% hair growth by this time.
Any patchiness that is visible at this point is much easier to conceal because many styling tools can be used without jeopardizing the hair grafts’ survival.
