Washing your hair after a hair transplant is an important step in your recovery. You should be able to wash your hair on the 5th day after surgery. In this blog, we will explain how to wash your hair after a hair transplant.

Why you should wash your hair after a hair transplant

After the hair transplant, you will leave scabies and small pieces of skin in the area of ​​your recipient. In the area of ​​your donors, you will stay with small spots where hairs have been pulled. These must be rinsed carefully to start looking normal again!

For the first 4 days after surgery, you will be asked to keep your newly implanted hair moist. This can be achieved by spraying seawater solution every 30 minutes.

You will not be able to wash your entire head until the 5th day after surgery. By day 5, your hair will feel a little uncomfortable. You will also want to get rid of any skin blemishes or small spots that have formed after the surgery. You will also feel much more refreshed and clean after your wash.

Wash your donor area

In the morning after the hair transplant, you can remove the bandage and wash the back of your head. Steps:

  • This will allow you to easily remove the bandage and discard it in the bin.
  • Once your donor area is found, you can shampoo the donor area as usual
  • Rinse the shampoo foam with warm water
  • Dry your donor area
  • Washing the recipient area

On the 5th day after the hair transplant, you will be able to wash your recipient’s area. Steps:

  • Run some hot water from the tap or showerhead
  • Let the hot water soak in the areas of your donor and on the sides of your head. Be careful not to spray, knock or directly touch the recipient area
  • Once your donor area is found, you can shampoo the donor area as usual
  • Gently move the foam from your donor areas, using your fingers on your newly implanted hairs
  • Let the foam soak in your newly implanted hairs for 5-10 minutes
  • Once 5-10 minutes have elapsed, start rinsing the foam from your donor area

  • Let the water run through the implanted hairs and rinse the foam you have moved there from your donor area
  • Dry your donor area
  • Dry the receiver with air

You may find that you still have some spots and blemishes on your skin after your first wash. This is normal – do not worry. You can wash your hair twice a day by following the steps above. In 3-4 days most signs of surgery, including skin blemishes and blemishes, should disappear.

Schedule your hair wash after a hair transplant

Surgery day: Once you have surgery, your head will be covered with dressings and you will have to leave them alone. You can not wash your head during this period.

Day 1 of the recovery procedure and the first day after surgery: You should avoid washing your head and damaging the bandages. But continue to spray the saline spray every 30-45 minutes and massage the forehead and forehead at your same intervals.

Days 2 and 3: The bandages can be removed on day 2. Wash the donor area (back of the head) with baby shampoo, but do not disturb the implants. The saline spray should continue to be used and the forehead should continue to be rubbed.

Day 4: Wash the donor area, but do not disturb the cuttings. The saline spray no longer needs to be used and you also do not need to do regular forehead massage.

Day 5 onwards: You can start washing your whole head using baby shampoo.

Day 14: You can return to your daily hair care routine from now on.

Avoid washing your hair for at least the first 24 hours

Schedules may take longer depending on the surgery and the discretion of your surgeon. Washing your hair too early can have a negative impact on the result of the treatment.

Stay out of the shower at first

Shower spray can adversely affect the transplanted follicles in your scalp. Stay away from the shower for the first few days after surgery and wash with sponges or regular baths.

Instructions for the first days of washing hair

For most hair restoration patients, we recommend that you use the cup method to wash your hair.

First, fill a cup with hot water. Add a few drops of shampoo and mix it in the cup with your fingers. When the water and shampoo are mixed, gently pour the mixture into your hair. Do not use pulling movements when cleaning your hair.

Once the shampoo is complete, fill your cup with clean warm water and rinse the fluff. Repeat until your hair does not contain shampoo. Allow your hair to air dry instead of using a towel.

Shampoo your hair for a week to two weeks after surgery

Again, this may vary from patient to patient. By the end of the first week after surgery, you should be able to return to your hair as usual. You may receive some instructions on how to gently massage your scalp to promote healing and proper hair growth.

Avoid taking fish

Whatever you do to take care of your hair after surgery, never choose scabies. These will fall on their own. The choice of spots can ruin the results of the hair restoration process and increase the risk of complications.
