How Should You Care For Your Hair After A Hair Transplant?

The quality of the patient’s grafts, the hair surgeon’s ability, and the grafting technique used all have a role in how well the follicles are transferred from the harvesting location to the grafting area. However, recovery is equally critical because healthy hair growth depends on the weeks following a hair transplant treatment. The risk of a failed hair transplant is reduced if you take appropriate care of your new grafts, regardless of the hair transplant method you select.

Your new grafts are delicate and require extreme care to develop properly. It is essential to adhere to all postoperative instructions provided by your clinic and to motivate yourself with a fair dose of self-will and patience to increase your chances. This guide to post-operative care for Hair Transplant in India will allow you to provide your new hair, day by day, an ideal evolution, whether it is for a male or female hair transplant in India, a Cosmetic transplant, a micro hair transplant on a small area, or a frizzy hair transplant.

What steps need to be taken after a hair transplant?

1st to 8th day:

Your final session at the hair clinic allows your surgeon to inspect the bulbs and the caregiver to administer an antiseptic, such as red Betadine, the day following the FUE hair transplant procedure, after a good morning of rest. To show the patient the correct process to follow, the bandage is taken off and a first shampoo is performed at the clinic. If your job requires more physical work, taking a quick week off is advised. For the next ten days, avoid alcohol use, especially if your doctor has given you antibiotics. Smoking should be avoided for at least two to three weeks after surgery. Eat less spicy and salty food.

Day 8 to 30

As soon as you go back into your routine, the scabs start to fade beneath your daily shower. It is banned to be outside in the sun or the rain for the first month. During this time, itching could happen. You can apply calendula oil or aloe vera to the region to soothe baby skin discomfort. It promotes healing and hydration of the implanted area and keeps the scalp’s skin from drying out too much.

1st to 3rd month: 

One month after the procedure, the implanted follicles start to fall out like little fluff. That is normal. Your new permanent hair will then start to grow again after roughly three months. Small white spots may form during this period before the appearance of hair. This is not an infectious pimple, but rather a typical response to hair development. They will get red, then suddenly open up to allow space for the new hair. In some circumstances, the operated area may become numb. Don’t worry, at the end of the second month, this sensation will go completely.

Also, let your head breathe, but keep it out of the sun’s rays, which can kill young follicles and harm the healing process for hair transplants. To safeguard the grafts and maintain healthy regrowth, avoid wearing motorcycle helmets, caps, or other headgear for the first three months. Do not return to swimming in the pool or the sea before three months have passed.

Usually, the full implications of a hair transplant are seen after eight to twelve months.
