Hair Wash After Hair Transplant

You have had your Hair Transplantation done. Now you are ready to go back to your home country. But you have a question in your mind:

– How is hair wash after hair transplant?
– When can I wash my hair normally after hair transplant?

You may even think that washing your hair may damage the transplanted area. Nevertheless, washing your both donor area and the transplanted area will help to remove the dead skin and the scalp scabs peel off and prevent hair transplant infection.

This is one of the most asked questions by the patients. As each patient has a unique hair transplant case, your doctor may give you different instructions. It is important to wash the head in the right way to get rid of dead skin after hair transplant by the end of the10th day.

Pat your head with a gentle towel and do not use any hair dryer

After washing your hair, always pat your hair gently with a towel and do not use hair dryers for 1-2 weeks. When you comb your hair, do it very carefully and try to avoid combing the part of the graft.
