If your hair and hair follicles are damaged during hair transplantation, you may lose your hair. In the last stage of hair transplantation, hair strands are placed one by one at angles of 40-45 degrees to the channels opened for hair transplantation. And the operation is completed.

What should be done after a hair transplant?
The essential part of hair transplantation is post-hair care. In the first week after hair transplantation, you can wash your hair professionally in the clinic. If you wash your hair in the first week, you can kill your hair follicles because the roots are very delicate right after the hair transplant. Then you can wash your hair once every two days. But you have to be very careful during this washing. Because after the hair transplant operation, some rashes and scabs occur on the skin. It would be best if you did not damage these crusts. The shells will shed spontaneously.
After the operation, it takes approximately 12-18 months for new hair to grow and hair transplantation to be completed. In this process, you should not keep your hair in extremely hot and extremely cold environments. Extreme conditions can damage your hair follicles, and your hair may not grow. We recommend that you do not apply substances such as gel or wax on your hair. These chemicals can damage your hair. You can blow dry your hair, but you have to be very careful while doing this. By following the instructions given by your doctor, you can ensure that your newly transplanted hair does not fall out.
How should hair be washed after hair transplantation?
After hair transplantation, you should not wash your hair with detergent-containing shampoos because such shampoos damage your hair follicles and your hair follicles die. It would help if you used shampoos containing natural oils instead of detergent-containing shampoos. Thanks to shampoos containing natural oils, your hair follicles will be nourished healthily and help your hair to grow. If you wash your hair frequently after hair transplantation, you can kill your hair follicles. For this reason, you should not wash your hair often. Ideally, you should wash your hair every two days. Your doctor will give you the necessary instructions in this regard. Sweating of your scalp can also damage your hair follicles. That’s why you should keep your hair away from excessive heat and especially the sun, or you can wear a thin hat and protect your scalp to protect it from sunlight.
Hair transplantation will not make sense if you do not take insufficient care after hair transplantation. After the procedure, you should strictly follow the instructions given by your doctor. By following these instructions, you will have completed the hair transplant cycle healthily and successfully.
