Washing Instructions After Hair Transplantation
Hair restoration is a delicate procedure. Post operation care is extremely important to have optimal results. In this sense, a special hair wash routine for the first 14 days after a hair transplant operation is required.
Hair Wash Instructions After a Hair Transplant
Step 1: Applying Aftercare Lotion
In most cases, the hair transplant after care lotion is supplied by your clinic. The lotion enhances the regeneration of skin cells, moistures the skin and soften the scabs. It should be applied to both recipient and donor areas.
Step 2: Applying Medical Shampoo
A special medical shampoo is needed for the initial 14 days of the post-operation period. After the application of the lotion, you may apply the shampoo gently with your fingertips. You should follow the same direction of the transplanted grafts and avoid strong movements.
Step 3: Rinsing
Use lukewarm water without high pressure for rinsing. Avoid hot and high-pressure water.
Step 4: Drying
You should let your hair dry naturally. You should avoid towels and hair dryers for the first 2 weeks.
After 14 days of special care, you can return to your hair wash routine.
