Following a Hair Transplant……

  • Make sure you do not use any chemicals or chemical treatments including hair coloring on your scalp for a period of at least 6 weeks
  • Ensure you use a very gentle and safe shampoo in the first week (at least after 3 days Post op) following the transplant, taking special care of the transplanted area
  • It is highly recommended to wait for a period of at least 2 weeks before you start to use hair dryers and hair care products such as gels or waxes.
  • Remember to treat the area containing the implanted hair follicles as gentle as you can
  • While applying hair gels or creams, make sure you don’t pull or disturb the implanted follicles
  • Another good recommendation from experts that you should consider is getting your scalp massaged after around 4 months following the Transplant procedure. Massaging improves blood circulation and also strengthens the hair follicles.
  • Hairbrushes can also be used after 4 months following the transplant
  • Always make sure of clean and hygienic hands before touching your head, to keep your scalp free of any infections
  • Make sure you are regular with follow up appointments after undergoing the transplant procedure
  • Take medical advice from your doctor before using Rogaine, Dermatch, Toppik etc.,

Before your Hair Transplant surgery, make sure you discuss any of your Post Op care questions with Dr.Jones.
