After your hair transplant procedure, it’s important to follow Salameh Plastic Surgery and Hair Transplant’s next steps in order to optimize your results. After hair transplant care is nearly as important as the transplant itself! Today we will go over the five most important actions to take after your hair transplant. Follow these easy steps and you will have a phenomenal new head of hair before you know it.
1. Handle with Care
Even with the ease and comfort that comes with the use of our state-of-the-art ARTAS transplant system, your scalp is still going to be relatively tender after your hair transplant. After your procedure is complete, make sure you do not wash your hair too vigorously during the weeks afterward, and ensure your hair products do not have any harsh chemicals or additives that could damage your new strands.
2. Alter Your Hair-Shaping Plans
If you have long hair, you may have grown accustomed to gathering your hair into tight hairstyles like buns or close ponytails, but we recommend you forgo these styles for the time being. To best care for your hair transplant tresses, consider styling your hair in looser styles such as braids. If you must style your hair up after your hair transplant for any reason, we recommend using a gentle silk scrunchie to tie up your hair rather than an abrasive hairband.
3. Invest in the Right Hair Products
We mentioned earlier that you should avoid hair products that contain harsh chemicals. Now that you know what not to use, do you know which types of shampoos, conditioners, and other products you should utilize instead? Head to our specialized haircare store after your hair transplant to see which of our products best suit your needs. We have conditioners designed for gentle use, shampoo that encourages natural hair regrowth, and a full package for those looking for hair rejuvenation shampoo, conditioner, and serum!
4. Have Some Patience
Everyone has a different body and different genetic adaptations when it comes to hair growth. Some people may wait longer than others to start seeing results after their hair transplant. Do not be alarmed if it takes a few weeks or even a few months for your regrowth process to start displaying obvious growth. Remember that your body is smart and working at its own unique pace! Show your body compassion and take this time to savor this unique phase of regrowth.
5. Listen to Your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
If you’ve chosen Dr. Salameh for your procedure, you already know you’re in the best of hands. Place your faith in your plastic surgeon not only during the procedure itself, but for instructions on after hair transplant care, too! Dr. Salameh firmly believes that a holistic approach to rejuvenation produces the best results. His recommendations and instructions for before and after hair transplant care are an integral part of the procedure itself. He knows how you should treat your hair after its transplant just as expertly as he knows how to conduct the transplant!
