Shock hair loss is not actually how it looks like. Most people think that they feel very sorry about a terrible incident or depression and they have a hair loss because of that. That is not the definition of shock hair loss. This type of hair loss is associated with hair transplantation procedures. For example, after your hair transplantation procedure, your transplanted hair will grow a bit. All of a sudden they will start falling out, this is called shock hair loss.
The fluid injections and microchannels that are opened during hair transplantation procedures make your immune system target your hair follicles. Your hair follicles are attacked by your immune system and make the external parts of your hair follicles fall. The reason why your immune system attacks those hair follicles are associated with your body’s nature. Your immune system thinks that those microchannels and planted hair follicles are a threat to your body. Thinking that your body has been compromised, they attack there and try to destroy them.
However, hair follicles from the back of the head are stronger than your previous lost hair. They’ve survived from male pattern baldness already and they are so likely to defend themselves from your immune system’s attacks.
After the fall of your hair strands, your scalp starts growing new hair strands. You may face a couple of further attacks from your immune system in the future. That’s why your full hair density regeneration may take up to 9 months. That’s a long time to wait but the success is almost inevitable though.
Some people may not grow their fresh hair after shock loss. It is rare but it does happen. Doctors warn their patients about such situations. They may say that additional hair transplantation procedures may be required if you lose some of your newly transplanted hair follicles.
