Looking After Your Hair Post Hair Transplant

It is no secret that a hair transplant is not a quick fix. It takes a lot of time, money and effort to retain your hair to its full capability with many specialist shampoos and procedures that have to be used to ensure that the hair transplant is a success.

Using good shampoos for hair growth such as Alpecin is a good way to look after your hair post hair transplant. These sorts of shampoos help stimulate hair growth. Caffeine shampoos will also help thicken hair so that if the hair transplant has still left you a bit thin on top they will sort this out by giving you the volume you want and deserve!

In the short term period after getting a hair transplant try to minimalise or even cut out the use of chemical products such as hair sprays and gels as these could be damaging to relatively new hair that is trying to grow. Wait until your hair has fully recovered naturally and any side effects such as itchiness have gone. Using products straight away could present long-term damage to your expensive hair transplant!

Post Hair Transplant Care

Another way to look after your hair transplant is to let it breathe! By putting hats and caps on your head you aren’t allowing much oxygen to get to your hair follicles which need to be stimulated as much as possible to grow your hair out. Wearing something on your head wouldn’t necessarily stop your hair from growing but in my opinion, the results will be better if nothing is put on it!

Following these useful steps surrounding your hair transplant can help to look after it however always consult with a GP or your hair transplant specialist before doing anything to your hair transplant. They will be able to advise you best depending on how your body is reacting to the hair transplant and how well the hair is growing. Hair transplants are costly to have done and also costly to maintain afterwards so please ensure that you thoroughly read through all the information provided on various internet pages and even the NHS website.
