Top 4 Tips for Better Hair After A Hair Transplant

Man checking hairline, in a bathroomIf you have just had a hair transplant, one of the first things on your mind is how to get the best possible results. Here are four tips to help you have better-looking hair after a hair transplant.

1. No Smoking or Drinking Alcohol

Smoking and drinking alcohol can increase the risk of infection and infection can cause scarring and make your results less than optimal. If you smoke, stop as soon as possible. If you drink alcohol, limit yourself to one or two drinks per week.

2. Carefully Follow Your Doctors Instructions

Your doctor will give you specific instructions about what medications to take and how often to take them in order to reduce the chance of infection and other complications following surgery. Follow those instructions carefully so that you can be sure that your results are as good as possible.

3. Take Supplements

Your body needs certain vitamins and minerals in order for it to heal properly after surgery, so taking supplements is essential if you want optimal results from your procedure. Your doctor or surgeon should be able to recommend specific supplements that are right for you based on their experience with these procedures over time, so don’t hesitate to ask if there is anything else you should be taking along with the ones they mention initially.

4. Take Good Care of Your Transplanted Hairs

Your new transplanted hairs will need an environment that is clean and healthy in order to grow properly. Avoid extreme temperatures (very hot or very cold weather) which may cause stress on your scalp and potentially affect growth rates. Also avoid excessive sun exposure as well as chlorine water sources such as swimming pools (chlorine can damage transplanted hairs).
