What to expect from your hair transplant results after 6 months

Up until the 6th month of your hair transplant recovery journey, you would have already experienced the transition of your hair from the telogen phase into the anagen phase of the hair growth cycle. Your hair remains in the anagen phase of the hair growth cycle and will continue to grow for years to come.

Hair growth 6 months after hair restoration surgery

Around the 6-month mark, commonly referred to as the hair busting stage, you will begin to observe an obvious increase in the rate of hair growth and a visible difference in hair density. At this point, 6 months after hair transplant, your newly transplanted hair begins growing at the same rate as the rest of your hair which is generally about 1-2cm per month for those with naturally fine hair and about 1cm for those with coarse, curlier hair.

Between the 3rd and 5th months of recovery, hair growth is visible but fine, transparent, and short. Whereas your hair transplant results after 6 months are observed as an increase in darkness and density of the hair as it begins to blend more naturally with the native hair. This is known as the emergent period as you will observe roughly 50% of your ultimate hair transplant results at this point. Although this can be a rather exciting time for many, it’s great knowing that this is only half of your full results and that your hair will continue to thicken and grow longer for the next 6 months.

Effects from the surgery

The side effects of your hair transplant after 6 months are minimal due to the fact that the scalp is fully healed at this point. Your natural hair growth cycle, along with a few other factors, plays a huge role in the results and side effects that you will observe at this point. Side effects 6 months after hair transplantation occur as a direct consequence of hair growth in the recipient region.


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, any patchiness observed at this point is much easier to hide as styling tools such as clippers can start being utilized without compromising the survival of the hair grafts.

Possible scarring

If a clinic offering the FUT method is opted for, patients will have to deal with a visible linear scar at the back of their heads. For this reason, along with others, IdealofMeD. only offers the most scientifically advanced methods of hair transplantation – FUE and DHI. These methods of hair transplantation ensure the best hair transplant results after 6 months as they each promise little scarring, mostly invisible to the human eye.

Unusual texture

The newly transplanted hair may still appear slightly finer than the native hair and have somewhat of a kinky or wiry texture. This visible texture difference is temporary and will start to normalize and match your existing hair over the next 3 months as the hair matures.

What you’ll observe 6 months after hair transplantation

Once you reach the 6-month mark of hair transplantation, you will notice a visible increase in the hair growth rate going forward as the hair begins to blend more seamlessly with the native hair. You will have the opportunity to benefit further from increased styling options as the hair is longer and darker, camouflaging the sparser regions of the scalp more easily.

You can also expect to see a further 30% of hair growth over the next 3 months so your hairstyling options are ever-expanding. For more information on what you can expect to see in the mirror in the next few months as your transplanted hair reaches maximum maturation, check out our hair transplant results after 1 year page.

Getting the best hair transplant results after 6 months

The 6th month marks halfway in your hair restoration journey with hair growth reaching approximately 50% around this time. The great news is that your scalp is fully healed, making your side effects superficial in comparison to those experienced in the first few months following your hair restoration procedure. To ensure that you continue to receive the same rewarding hair transplant results after 6 months, it is important that you continue to manage what you can control.

Precautions to take

Commit to healthy dietary habits

It is important that you are consistently making healthier lifestyle choices such as eating better and intaking enough water to assist in normal bodily functions such as lubrication of the hair follicles.

Lubricated follicles result in well-nourished hair shafts that are less susceptible to damage and dryness, which ultimately leads to split ends and breakage. The last thing you want after 6 months of waiting for your newly transplanted hair to resolve your problematic, balding or patchy hairline is to be losing hair as a result of dehydration, which is completely in your control.

Maintain a consistent hair care regime

To continue you benefitting the same way you did from your hair transplant results after 6 months, it’s important that you continue to look after your newly transplanted and native hair in order to prevent damage and breakage.

If you have opted for IdealofMeD’s standard package, you will receive a complimentary hair transplantation care box designed to last 2 months.

You will have noticed finer hair growth around 3 to 4 months after your hair transplant. However, once you have reached the 6-month mark, your hair growth rate will visibly increase. At this point, the hair will have entered the anagen phase of the hair growth cycle.

Although the anagen phase will vary from person to person, it’s estimated to last for 3 to 6 years, while some patients’ hair may continue growing for up to 7 years before the cycle starts over. To boost hair growth, IdealofMeD. hair transplant experts have designed products especially for hair transplant recovery, shop Ideal products now for thicker, shinier, longer hair.

It is perfectly fine to shave your head using hair clippers roughly 1 month following your hair transplant, however, it is advised to avoid using clippers until you have reached the 6th month of recovery as clippers make direct contact with the scalp.

This could cause issues in the earlier months of recovery when patients are likely to experience pimple-like formations in the transplant area before the hair penetrates the epidermis. For more information on what hair transplant results you can expect month to month, check out our Hair Transplant Results page.

Hair vitamins are highly effective in hair transplant recovery and hair strength, which in turn, results in hair growth as the hair is less likely to break during periods of visibly increased hair growth (6 to 9 months) which would ultimately hinder your hair growth. Our Ideal Hair Vitamins are the perfect combination of Biotin, Ginseng and Zinc aiding in longer, stronger, shinier hair.

Hair growth generally becomes more prominent around 6 months after a hair restoration treatment. You will likely experience maximum hair density 12 months after hair transplantation, however, the hair will continue to grow longer until you cut it, just as your natural hair does. If you’d like to find out more information on how you too can get the hairline of your dreams, book a free consultation with our IdealofMeD. expert now. 

You will be happy to know that 6 months after your hair transplant, you are free to continue with your day-to-day activities such as swimming and exercising as your hair follicles would have already settled months ago and the risk of graft loss is minimal.
