Shock hair loss is a phenomenon in which your non transplanted hair sheds after a hair transplant.
Shock hair loss usually happens between the second and eighth weeks after a hair transplant, when your new hair enters a resting phase the hairs shed.
This is a perfectly normal and natural process and is nothing to worry about. Your new, healthy hairs will soon begin to grow in their place.
Shock loss is where there is a loss of natural hair from the donor area or AFTER a hair restoration. Shock hair loss is not specific to any one procedure because we have seen it in the donor area in both FUE and FUT surgeries. But it occurs more commonly in the recipient area.
In nearly all cases of shock hair loss, the loss is temporary and will eventually start to grow back. Most patients report initial regrowth between 3-6 months. ... It may take 12-18 months to mature into the previously normal hair thickness and texture.

There are many reasons for transplanted hair fall out which includes :
A hair transplant is traumatic on the scalp and the surrounding hairs. New hair and the existing hairs can temporarily shed which is known as shock loss.
Hair loss will occur between 2-3 weeks after the hair transplant procedure. But within a short time, new hairs will eventually grow back again.
The recipient area might reject the donor grafts completely. In this case, the body’s immune system can reject the hair grafts and can destroy the transplanted tissue completely.
You need to listen to your doctor and pay special attention to post-operative care or else it may lead to the destruction of the hair transplant.
