The first 2 weeks of scalp caring is important after the surgery. It might influence the final result of hair transplant.
When can I wash my hair?
From our collaborated dermatologists’ experience: about 24-48hrs after the surgery, the post-op hair, and the transplanted area would begin to form a layer of scab, it would be the time to wash your hair. For ensuring your transplanted scalp is ready for washing, please confirm it with your doctor first.
Must Do for Scalp Care After Hair Transplant
- BE GENTLE (extra gentle) to transplanted scalp.
- AVOID rubbing transplanted scalp.
- DO NOT put your head upside down for washing. The blood might run too fast to your head and influence the transplanted scalp wound recovery.
