How Should You Prepare Your Hair And Scalp?
All you need to do is wash your hair normally the day of your procedure, and don’t apply conditioner or styling products. In the weeks leading up to your hair restoration, you’ll be asked not to dye your hair.
Microfibres or camouflage sprays are to be thoroughly washed out before treatment as well, and your surgeon will advise you to wait until you’re completely healed before using them again.
Why Is It Important to Avoid Working Out for a Couple of Weeks?
Many of our clients are fit and active people who view going to the gym as a regular and necessary part of life. It can be frustrating to hold off, but there are great reasons to do as advised. The increase in blood pressure people experience during aerobic activity increases pressure in all the little vessels and in particular, the blood vessels in your scalp.
The area will be sensitive and a bit swollen for a week, but adding pressure while working out, or even during sex, can push on the tiny graft implants. You could experience increases in swelling, bleeding, or even lose some grafts. You’ll be free to take part in most light activities soon after hair transplant, but the workouts need to wait.
If you have questions about the process of planning or recovering from a hair restoration surgery, we’d love to hear from you.
