I had a hair transplant back in 2006; one day I decided to use an epilator to remove the transplanted hair because I wasn't happy with it. I regretted doing it the next day and hope the hair grows back. This was about 5 weeks ago and only about half of it grew back.( I counted the hairs before and after) Hair transplant doctor told me the other half might take 4 to 6 months to grow back? Why would that be? Wouldn't it all grow back at the same time? They said sometimes some of the hair follicles have to repair themselves before the hair grows back. Why wouldn't all of the follicles react the same way? Thanks.

You need to read about hair-cycles. Not all hairs undergo the same phase of cycles at the same time. Different stages take weeks and months to complete at random. What you counted was not the total hair present. You could have missed the follicles that were already in resting phase or exogen phase. What kind of an epilator was used? Hopefully you did not damage transplanted follicles.
