Importance of Washing Your Scalp after a Hair Transplant

Importance of Washing Your Scalp after a Hair Transplant

Hair transplant is widespread among people suffering from severe hair loss problems. It is the ultimate solution to get rid of baldness. This is why many people in Kochi are looking for a hair transplant in Kochi, Kerala, to regain their lost hair. 

Being a surgical method, we always advise you to follow specific instructions before and after the hair transplant to achieve the desired effects. These instructions may differ from clinic to clinic or depending upon the type of hair transplant performed.

The hair transplant process requires extraction of the healthy hair follicles from the donor area and implanting them to the bald spot. We at La densitae hair transplant clinic in Kochi, Kerala, use the FUE method while performing the hair transplant surgery. 

There is no need to cut a strip from the back of your scalp in the FUE procedure. We use a punch tool to extract healthy hair follicles without a strip cut. So, there will be no scope of scarring after the treatment. 

Your hair transplant surgeon will advise you not to wash your scalp for at least a few hours from the transplant. But you can have the shower the very next day. It would help if you remembered that the water should flow gently over the area where the hair follicle has been transplanted while having the shower.

The main reason for washing the hairs the next day after the procedure is to remove the scabs and dried blood. It helps you to heal as fast as possible. There will be less chance of infections and other complications in your scalp’s treatment area if you wash your scalp the next day. 

You should allow your hair to dry once washed thoroughly. Do not rub your head with a towel. You can use a soft towel to pat dry your wet scalp. During the first 10 to 14 days, one should avoid rubbing, picking, or scratching the transplanted area. It will give some time to the newly transplanted grafts to get appropriately fixed on the donor region.

You can bathe twice a day. But remember, you should not use any chemical-based harsh shampoo on your scalp. Using a baby care shampoo every alternative day can lead you to faster healing. It will be best to ask your hair transplant surgeon to prescribe a medicated shampoo for you.  

You may also feel some itchiness in the donor area after the treatment while you are healing. Avoid picking up the scabs while they are dry. Do not scratch to get relief from itchiness. Take all the medications properly and use the ointments prescribed by your hair transplant surgeon regularly. 

After 10-14 days, you can wash your hair using a mild shampoo. While using the shampoo, you can rub your scalp gently and rinse with water. It will help you to remove scabs slowly and entirely. Thus, there will be no complications regarding your hair growth at all.

Primarily all the newly transplanted hair will fall out within few days of the surgery. But the implanted follicles will stay in your scalp. Finally, after two to three months of the treatment, you will see regrowth of your hair. To see the remarkable change in your hair transplant treatment result, you need to wait for near about one year. 

We hope all the above information will help get the desired result after having the hair transplant in Kochi, Kerala.
