How to sleep the first period after your hair transplant
The first period after your hair transplant, it is important that nothing comes in contact with the newly transplanted hair that can make healing more difficult or cause damage to the newly transplanted hair follicles. When you sleep you must lie in a sitting position so that the transplanted area does not come in contact with anything. This can feel strange and uncomfortable for some people. We have compiled what to think about when you sleep.
1. Avoid contact with the newly transplanted area
The most important thing about sleeping is that the newly transplanted area can’t come into contact with anything. How much you have to sit up when you sleep depends on which part of the head was operated on. For a hair transplant on the crown we recommend a neck pillow. If you have done a hair transplant on the temples, stacked pillows can be enough.
2. If you move around a lot in your sleep
If you move around a lot in your sleep, we recommend that you roll up towels or place pillows next to you on each side as armrests.
