The aftercare of a hair transplant is just as important as the procedure itself, and although many people will want to relax after the operation is completed, the healing process must be carefully followed to ensure overall success of the transplant.
After your hair transplant with Crown Clinic, we will provide you with a detailed and tailored aftercare guide that will go through your recovery in detail, to ensure your best possible results. As well as this guide, there are a number of products that can be used, each with different benefits to aid the progress. Read on to discover the best post-hair transplant care there is.
Hair transplant aftercare
Because the aftercare for your hair transplant is so important, you must ensure that the clinic you receive treatment from is a reputable institution that comes recommended, such as Crown Clinic. Any surgery providing hair transplants of any kind should also supply a tailored solution to your aftercare journey, and so any advice here should be taken in conjunction with that, and consultation with your doctor. Most products such as gel and wax are to be completely avoided for 2 weeks, post-surgery.
Products to use after a hair transplant
Saline solution is often recommended by experts in order to help to settle grafts quicker, keep the transplant area sanitary and to speed up recovery time, as well as aiding with any possible itching sensation. Saline solution can also be used before applying a gentle shampoo, but it is worth checking with your doctor to see if this is a recommended product for your particular aftercare journey.
Due to the fact that many popular shampoos contain harsh chemicals, one of the best products to use after a hair transplant is baby shampoo or herbal shampoo such as those containing aloe vera. These shampoos are naturally less harsh on the hair and scalp than products containing unnatural chemicals. Similar options that can be sought out are all natural or vegan shampoos and conditioners, as these often contain less chemicals, although you should use a medical shampoo from your doctor if you are supplied one.
Lotion is another product that can be used prior to washing, in order to soften the scalp and the scabs that will likely have appeared around the transplant area. By softening this area, traces of dried blood will be removed easier and the wound will heal faster. It is essential to be extremely careful when touching any part of the scalp at the early stages of recovery in order to maximise your transplant results.
Supplements and medications
There are a number of supplements and medications that may be recommended by your surgeon to be taken following your hair transplant. These vary from person to person, but should be tailored to your individual needs post-operation, and are some of the best hair products to use after a hair transplant.
Help Hair Supplements
Whilst not a direct aftercare product, Help Hair Supplements, which can be purchased via Crown Clinic on our hair loss products page, can support healthy hair growth post-recovery. These protein shakes can nourish the hair roots and follicles, and contain B-12, biotin, and niacin to provide nourishment to hair, stimulating healthy growth.
Help Hair Leafy Green Shampoo
Help Hair’s Leafy Green Shampoo is another product available to purchase via Crown Clinic, and is a shampoo that can enhance the growth of your hair, stimulating fuller and more vibrant growth. This not only helps those who have recently had a hair transplant, its benefits can help anyone who wants to make their hair appear fuller and healthier.
