Hi, I'm on my 3rd week and still with scabs. My doctor advised me to dub gently. not rub. They told me to just let it fall naturally. But it's already 3rd week and it seems like only 5% of the scabs are gone. Please advice if i should be active on rubbing it when washing so that the scabs will fall off.

At 3 weeks we tell patients you can rub it off but ultimately go with what your doctor suggests. Each clinic is a little different.

Let your hair soak in water in the bath for about an hour, your scabs will then come out pretty easily. You will lose transplanted hairs at this point, it is unavoidable however they will grow back if the follicle has been implanted successfully.
