    Default What hairstyle do you recommend while waiting for FUE hair transplant to grow?

    Hi everyone, I had 3000 grafts via Neograft Fue procedure done on October 4th 2017, so I know I am 6 months out and growth is sparse and still thin, I know that I have to wait for a year to see final results and I may continue to grow thicker and more grafts in the coming months but wanted to know if most of you recommend buzzing it down to a 1 or 2 guard or don't touch the top and just trim sides and back? I shaved it down to a 1 guard the first 3-4 months but started to let it grow when i saw the grafts coming in but since its still thin and need toppik to look decent, I was wondering what you guys recommend hairstyle wise at this point?

    Iím kinda surprised that not one of you guys had a minute to respond to my question after it had 105 views since I posted it. Iím very disappointed, I thought weíre here to help one another and just wanted advice from what other guys did in this situation while waiting for hair to grow and was curious how much shaved it down and how much let it grow from the beginning. Oh well good luck to everyone, guess my question or questions arenít welcome here.

    I would keep the sides and back short and let it grow a little at the top. I haven't had Fue but the length in the pictures look pretty good.
    Who did the procedure?

    I had it done by Dr Ferguson from the Ferguson clinic in Honolulu Hawaii.

    Hey, do you have any post op pics? I would just keep it short on sides and let the top start to grow...

    Thanks dude, I had 2600 FUE done recently so I am interested in seeing others in that range. Will you be going back for another one?
