Washing After Hair Transplant and Its Importance

In the first days after hair transplantation, the hair follicles have not fully settled in the areas where they were transplanted. Any negative movement that may occur during this period may prevent the roots from holding on to the scalp.

Scabbing after hair transplant is one of the most common conditions.  Therefore, it is necessary to be extra sensitive when washing the crusted area. The main goal of hair washing after hair transplant is to clean the hair without damaging the hair follicle. During washing after the operation, the crusts fall out from the hair follicles. Washing allows the roots to breathe. If the washing is not done quickly or correctly after the procedure, the hair roots located in the transplanted area will be damaged. For the first washing process after transplantation, it is necessary to learn how to wash well.

The first washing after hair transplant is an important and delicate application. In case it is not done correctly, it will be more correct to carry out the first washing after the operation in the clinic or hospital where the procedure is performed by nurses because the new hair follicles planted are negatively affected.

It is necessary to pay attention to important points during the first washing, which is usually done on the second or third day after hair transplant. In general, in most of the activities performed after hair transplantation, the important thing is that the new hair follicles are not damaged. The key point of washing is that the crusts formed during the procedure are cleaned and the hair follicles are strengthened. No rubbing or pressure should be applied to the hair follicles that are sensitive during drying, and products that will adversely affect the hair follicles should not be used. After the washing process is over, the hair roots should not be left wet. Drying should be done using a hair dryer or with the help of a soft towel so as not to adversely affect the new hair follicles. When a hair dryer is preferred, the blowing speed of the machine should be reduced to a low degree and the drying process should take place at a distance of at least thirty centimeters from the hair.
