Hair Wash Before and After
One of the most important issues to be considered after the hair transplant operation is washing the hair. Crust, redness, and slight bleeding are expected to occur in the hair follicles after transplantation. Especially the crusts are preventing the hair follicles to breathe.
The first washing is performed in the Universal Hair Transplant Hospital to make the hair follicles breathe and clean them from the shells.
The first wash helps hair roots to hold firmly in their place. The first washing procedure should be carried out by a specialist in the hair transplant hospital. If the first wash is done at home, not in a hospital, any wrong movement shall cause damage to the hair follicles.
Hair follicles that do not hold well in their new places after hair transplantation can easily fall off in the first days after the operation. If the first wash is not done very carefully, some of the transplanted hair follicles may die.
After the first wash, the other washes are carried out by patients in their own homes. The more carefully the
hair is washed, the more comfortable and fast the recovery process is.
Right after the operation, you will be given by our experts a special shampoo and a hair spray. Our team members will wash your hair for the first time and show you how to wash your hair by yourself for the next 10 – 15 days. On the second day, you are obliged to wash both the transplanted area and the donor area together once a day.
By applying the provided shampoo to your head you will make enough foam on your head and with your fingertips, you will tap very gently and carefully. Please note that scrubbing and rubbing at this area is strictly forbidden to protect the grafts. In order to rinse and clean the head after foaming, you should place your head over the sink and pour the water very gently over the shampoo foam.
