Post Hair Transplant Care

Once the hair transplant procedure is complete, it’s time to focus on preventing the scalp from things that can do more harm like sweating, dust, spicy food, alcohol, cigarettes, cigar and other such things that are explained in the passages below. Optimal healing will not begin until proper safeguards have not been adopted and made a part of your life. Healthy growth of the transplanted hair will ensure that the net result is natural looking fluffy hair that gets compliments rather than comments. All the important questions regarding post-transplant care have been answered here and the moot point is taking good care of yourself first. Only then can medicines and supplements will have a real effect. By relying just on medication and surgical procedures, you are expecting too much from them and going against the order of natural healing processes engendered within the body. And also against the advice of the best hair transplant.

Tell us more about the steps to be taken after a successful hair transplant?

  • Sleeping in an elevated position with two-three pillows under your neck or better still on a reclining chair is what most Trichologists will recommend to keep your scalp safe.
  • You need to shampoo your scalp a minimum of three times, the next day after the surgery after removing the headband. Continue to shower twice a day but shampoo gently for the next one week as this will soak away all the crusts formed on the scalp after the grafting.
  •  Alcohol can be resumed ten days after the procedure, though it reduces the flow of oxygen to your brain by relaxing your nerves. You might not get deep sleep needed for recovery as alcoholic sleep is not refreshing.
  • Smoking again restricts blood and oxygen flow to the brain so therefore try and abstain from it for a month.

What other precautions I need to take as a patient?

  • Heavy cardio exercise might trigger heavy sweating on the scalp which in turn will increase the risk for infections. Light exercise is fine and so is yoga but nothing strenuous like pulling weights in the gym or doing cross-bar exercises. Going out in the sun should be done with a cap or hat and the other choice is to use a sunscreen lotion of SPF.>30.
  • Hair-cuts and dyeing of your hair can begin after a month of the procedure. Adhere to the basics like avoiding heavy exercise, high exposure to sunlight, using screens. Moreover, the reasons that triggered hair fall in the first place need to be found and tackled. There is no compromise for good sleep, good food, exercise and good relationships are way to keep your natural balance and composure.
  • Imbalances occur in the body due to development of toxins which interfere with the bodily processes and stop protein production resulting in thinning of hair and hair fall.  Every kind of hair loss is small before it begins gaining volume owing to your neglect.

Post-transplant care needs to be taken seriously to attempt a solid recovery.
