After hair transplantation, it takes an average of one year for the hair to take on a natural appearance. There are some critical time periods after hair transplantation. After hair transplantation, the grafts need a certain period of time to attach to their new areas. For this reason, the 3rd day and 15th day after the procedure refers to a process in which the patient should act selflessly. During this period, the patient should strictly follow the instructions of the specialist he/she has consulted and follow the rules. It should not be forgotten that hair transplantation is a process and every person is different from each other, and the instructions given by the doctor in this process should be followed. The first days after hair transplantation should be rested. Care should be taken not to damage the transplanted area with effects such as friction or impact. Especially while lying down or sleeping, care should be taken not to rub the transplanted area against the pillow. In this process, it is very normal to feel pain and ache in the treated areas. Using painkillers prescribed by your doctor will help you get through this process without any problems. While resting in this process, attention should also be paid to fluid intake. Drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol and caffeinated drinks as much as possible. After hair transplantation, the scalp should be protected from the sun.
First Wash After Hair Transplant
The first washing process after hair transplantation is performed by specialists at the hair transplantation centre. Due to sensitivity, the first few washes are done at the hair transplantation centre. Then the hair can be washed at home. When washing the hair at home, the products given or recommended by the doctor should be used. In addition, the hair should not be dried with a towel after washing, but should be left to dry naturally if possible. In addition, hair should not be cut or coloured. In the first 15 days, you should not enter places such as sea, pool and sauna. The planted area should be protected from rain or snowfall as much as possible. Warm places can be preferred rather than very cold or very cold environments. If the patient has to go out, he/she can be protected from both sun and precipitation by wearing a loose hat. After a while, the scalp will start to crust and will continue to shed its crusts. Hair will fall out within a few months and this is also called shock hair loss. This is expected and it takes an average of one year for the hair to get the most natural and full appearance. The patient should frequently remind himself/herself that this is a process and should not act in a hurry and follow the advice given by his/her doctor.
