In the transplant area, by the end of the first month, hair loss begins to occur – this is normal. The growth of new healthy hair on average begins within the 3rd month.
Hair Washing after Hair Transplantation
The head should be washed every day for 10 days after the operation. First, with light patting movements apply lotion (panthenol) to the transplant area and leave for 25 minutes. Rinse with cold water without pressure. Then rub the shampoo in your hands first and then apply it to the transplanted area. We apply shampoo with the same light movements to the transplant area. We also wash donor area with shampoo while massaging it – this will speed up healing. Wash off with cool water.
