How am I supposed to wash my hair after the hair transplantation procedure?
Here are some of the important tips on how you should wash your hair.
Do not wash your hair for 2 days at least
According to the doctors, the patients should not take a head bath for at least 2 days after undergoing the hair transplantation. But if positive, the patients should try to avoid the same for at least 5 to 7 days. In the first week, the hair is still fragile and at risk of getting dislodged.
Try to be very gentle with your hair
When you are permitted by the doctor to undergo the hair transplantation procedure, then try to be immensely gentle with your hair. So not rub them aggressively. Make sure you are not scrubbing.
Do not use a shower
I know it will be difficult for you, but gradually you’ll become accustomed to it. After all, it is only a matter of a few days. Make sure that you are not putting your head directly under the shower. Use a mug and bucket to wash your hair.
To emphasize the point, we are again mentioning that the patient should not be aggressively washing the hair. Have little drops of the shampoo in your hand, and then allow your hands to gently massage your scalp.
Do not use the non-prescribed shampoo
The doctor will prescribe you some of the dermatologically tested products which will not produce any negative impact on your scalp.
Do not aggressively wipe off the water
Do not use aggressive towel techniques to drain out the excess water. Let them be dried on their own.
