Post Operative Hair Wash

Washing will help remove scabs and accelerate healing process. We will provide you a shampoo and a lotion for the hair wash procedure.

You should start post-transplant hair washing process 3 days after hair transplant operation and follow the instructions once a day for 15 days.

If all scabs are removed after 15 days you do not have to use lotion anymore, feel free to use any kind of shampoo for washing and you can start to rub in the shampoo gently with your fingertips.

Important Note: Please keep in mind that you will lose the transplanted hair within the first two months.

First Week & Second Week

STEP 1 Applying Lotion

Emollient lotion enhances the regeneration of skin cells, moisturizes the skin and softens the scabs.

Donor Area & Recipient Area:

The lotion will be applied on both transplanted and donor areas. Gently cover both areas by tapping gently with 7-8 drops of lotion. Wait for 1 hour and rinse out during hair wash. Make sure you apply the lotion with the same direction of the transplanted grafts to avoid any damage. Note that you may use more lotion for donor area.


STEP 2 Applying Shampoo

Using the provided medical shampoo, create foam between your hands and spread foam through your donor and recipient area gently without rubbing or strong movements. Leave the foam on for 2-3 minutes before rinsing. Note that you may use more lotion on the donor area for itching, burning, dryness apart from the washing routine.


STEP 3 Rinsing

Third & Fourth Week

In case you still have some scabs, please put  12-15 drops of lotion on the transplanted area and leave it up to 2 hours. Afterwards, wash it with the shampoo provided by us and make a gentle massage to get rid of the scabs.

1 Month after the operation you will have passed the risky stage; you can go back to your normal life and use towels as well.
