How to wash the transplanted hair

To help the scabs soften and fall off, start rinsingyour hair with water daily 72 hours after your hair transplant.

After 4 days, you can start washing your hair gently with a mild shampoo.

It is important to wash your hair every day according to the instructions to keep the area clean but also to help loosen the scabs.

The scabs usually fall off within 7-10 days. Once the scabs have fallen off, the hair follicles can start to grow faster.

1. How to wash your hair

You can start washing the donation area in the neck as soon as the bandage is removed.

72 hours after the procedure, you should start rinsing the newly transplanted hair with lukewarm water. Do not apply too much pressure.

Shower the area with lukewarm water for 10 minutes to rinse the head thoroughly. This will help the scabs fall off and then the hair can start growing faster.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on what to do when it’s time to start washing your transplanted area after your hair transplant.

Frequently asked questions about washing your hair

For how long should I wash the transplant area after the procedure?

To remove the scabs as gently as possible and to keep the area clean, we recommend standing in the shower for 10 minutes. Do not wash the area longer than this.

10 minutes is enough to soften the scabs and help them fall off naturally. Repeat this every day until all the scabs have fallen off.

When can I wash my donation area?

You can start washing your donation area immediately after removing the bandage. However, avoid the water coming over your transplant area (where your hair follicles have moved) until 2 days after your hair transplant.

What temperature of water should I use when washing my hair?

Use hot enough water so that it is comfortable to stand in the shower for 10 minutes. Do not shower your hair in cold water.

The most important thing is that you can wash your hair in peace and let the scabs soften.
