The First Wash After a FUE Hair Transplant
The first wash after a FUE hair transplant is seen as the most important. Although you can take a body shower immediately after your procedure, you should wait 48 hours before your hair transplant first wash.
The first body wash after a FUE hair transplant should be done using a shower cap, followed by your hair transplant first wash 3 days later.
Your first wash after a FUE hair transplant should be done very carefully once you begin washing your hair.
Be very gentle while washing your hair after a FUE transplant for the first 5 days, ensuring you do not scrub too hard as this can dislodge the grafts. There are various things you should do when washing hair after a hair transplant, including:
Don’t Apply Water Directly
When washing your hair after a hair transplant, never place your head directly under the shower head. This can cause unwarranted pressure upon the operated area, dislodging the grafts and causing damage.
How to wash after a hair transplant should be done gently, using a wide headed shower that distributes the water, or using a cup and gently pouring it over your head.
Don’t Use Harsh Products
Shampoo and conditioner with harsh, unnatural chemicals can cause further damage to your hair. Washing your hair after a FUE hair transplant should be done using the prescribed shampoo given to you within your aftercare plan here at Vera Clinic, followed by shampoo with natural, unharmful ingredients.
Expect Some Side Effects
You may be inclined to wash your hair after a hair transplant the way you normally would. This is not advised. You can expect side effects such as red dots and bumps, along with itchiness, but this is a natural part of the healing process.
