Get 5 tips on how to take care of hair after hair transplantation. 5 Tips to Follow after Hair Transplant

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.

Laying down on the back is advised for a week.

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.

Wearing a wig is forbidden later hair transplant.

Avoid external damages

Try to avoid heavy exercise or strenuous activities for at least initial 2 to 3 weeks after hair transplant in Turkey. Avoid drinking alcohol or smoking for a minimum of 3 weeks following surgery. Avoid direct sunlight exposure for about 4 - 6 weeks. It is wise to put on a loose-fitting cap in the initial days after surgery.

Take care of nutrition

You should have a nutritious diet packed with vitamins and essential nutrients, and have enough water as well. Do not use any dyes, colouring agents or chemicals for a minimum of 4 - 5 weeks. Do not eat anything that you are allergic to; otherwise, you can end up scratching or rubbing the sensitive recipient site. It is important to control your anxiety and stress for a few weeks after the transplantation.
