Sweating Is Not Harmful For Transplanted Hair!

hair transplant“If you've had a hair transplant and are worried about sweaty issues, you can relax. Because sweating does not remove the transplanted hair or prevent it from growing.

In fact, excessive moisture on the scalp creates ideal conditions for microbial growth. However, keep your hair and scalp clean during the post-operative period!

There are small incisions in the donor area where the hair is taken and this area heals in a few days. All you need to do during this short-term recovery period is to rinse the area with warm water.

"How can I do that?" Let's answer right away: You can use a pitcher or bowl to apply this process. It doesn't hurt to wash the area and the rest of your hair regularly after the donor area has healed."

Will Newly Planted Hair Be Damaged When I Do Hard Scrubbing?

wet“For the first 7 to 10 days when the treated scalp is healing, it is important not to dislodge the transplanted roots while washing your hair.

Because the blood vessels in this area go through the healing process along with the skin. For this reason, it is of great importance that you wash it as gently as possible.

If your scalp bleeds while performing the cleansing process, this indicates that you have removed a planted root. If you experience such a situation, it would be beneficial to contact the center where you had the procedure done.

You can apply daily washing to prevent crusting in the treated areas of your scalp. In the daily washing process, you can get help from a soft-textured sponge and massage carefully with this sponge.

However, you may experience crusting for certain reasons. “

Crusting After Hair Transplantation and Its Solution

For this, it will be sufficient to gently roll the cotton tip over the shell. With this process, you can clean the crusts without damaging the sensitive blood vessels in the area.

At the end of 10 days after the procedure, you can start washing your hair routinely.”
