    I don't know if it is scar tissue that can affect growth. Growth is usually quite good and on time in strip scars. I personally think that it's some sort of autoimmune process that impacts repair cases especially those with pitting and ridging. In these instances, it's not delayed growth. It's a lack of growth or a reduction in yield.

    One very important aspect to note is growth of grafts in and amongst existing hair. When you have existing hair, the new growth begins at the same time, but you will not notice it until sometime between the 8th and 12th month. Usually, it is the 12th month. The hair must get to a styling length before you see it and then it's not the individual hairs. It's a sudden realization that you have more hair. You wouldn't see new grass seed growing in an established lawn, but you will see a thicker lawn when the new grass gets to the same length as the old grass. Also, when you have a jar with no pennies in it, you will see a dramatic impact when you add 500 pennies. However, if your jar already has 500 pennies in it, you will not as readily notice an increase of 50 pennies. Anytime you already have existing hair, the impact will not be as remarkable as when you begin with a bald scalp.

    I think it was a good video.
