Keep the scalp dry on the first day
This is especially important, as 24 hours is needed for the skin on your scalp to heal properly after the surgery. Try to avoid heavy activities that can cause you to sweat excessively, and damage the newly grafted hair.

Shampoo your hair gently
A day after the initial washing of your scalp at the clinic, apply shampoo on your scalp to get rid of any dead skin. This will also help clean scabs around the hair follicles that your surgeon has grafted. When the scabs are cleaned, they will be unable to damage the hair follicles and impede the growth of new hair. Consult your surgeon on the best shampoo brand to use on the grafted hair as well as the donor hair sites.
Avoid scratching or rubbing
Do not scratch or rub the scalp for at least 2 – 3 weeks after the surgery, and sleep with care with your head significantly elevated from your body while lying down to avoid damage to the newly implanted follicles after grafting. If there is discomfort, you can apply a topical antibiotic cream after consulting your surgeon.
