    Default Can A Hair System Damage Hair Transplant Results?

    6 months ago I had a 5000 graft hair transplant. It looks okay but the result is pretty thin so far and the hairline is still quite high.

    My plan was to save up for another one but for now I am looking into getting a hair system, the type that is glued on and stays on for several weeks before you go back to the salon and get it refitted. I wanted to test this out for a bit and if I get used to it I may stick with it otherwise I'll go for a second transplant. My main worry is will this damage the result of my hair transplant?

    I was worried about the glue pulling out the grafts when it is taken off. Would this have any chance of happening after 6 months or would it only likely happen in the early stages? I'm also wondering would the glue or the fact that a wig is constantly on my head affect the transplant at all?

    I've seen similar questions asked but it is usually about cases where the poster is a week to a month post op.

    Its not ideal for obvious reasons. Look to getting one you do not need glue down but rather clip. There are also systems that I believe do stick but not for the 6 week period.

    Id not advise investing so much in your hair only to do something to possibly harm the investment ;-)
