Can you cut your hair after a hair transplant?

Many people suffer from severe hair loss which often leads to baldness. The phenomenon affects both men and women and many of them are planning a hair transplant. It is a particularly effective solution that allows people suffering from baldness to find the hair implant that best suits their needs. Baldness can in fact be a very disabling problem for those who suffer from it and the transplant becomes a release from physical and moral discomfort.

However, those who undergo this type of surgery must be adequately informed about the procedures to be followed before, during and after the hair transplant. That’s why Starks, an expert in hair transplants, reveals in this article the right behaviors to adopt after a transplant, but also how to take care of your hair and cut it after surgery. What are the actions to avoid?


Post hair transplant – The behaviors to adopt in the days following the transplant

During the early postoperative phase, a lot of care and attention is needed. This phase lasts an average of ten days after surgery. Before recovery is optimal, however, it is essential to follow some indications.

First of all, it is essential to avoid rubbing in the grafting area. At the time of dressing, in daily gestures or even during sleep, it is necessary to limit contacts with the area affected by the hair transplant as much as possible.

At the same time, it is also essential to adopt a healthy and balanced diet that promotes rapid recovery. In the days following the operation, alcohol, coffee and tobacco are therefore banned. It will also be necessary to avoid excessively fatty or spicy foods and it is advisable to maintain the right hydration.

Workers should be able to return to their jobs about two days after the procedure. Furthermore, it is recommended to avoid sports activities or sexual intercourse during the first phase after the surgery.

 Finally, as far as sleep is concerned, it is preferable to sleep with the neck in a raised position to avoid rubbing and potential swelling of the skull.


Best post-transplant shampoo – treatments to reserve for the hair in the days following the transplant

If the doctor prescribes drugs after the operation, they will generally have to be taken for the entire first phase, i.e. for about ten days. These may be anti-inflammatories or pain relievers to relieve pain and prevent swelling of the transplant area. Furthermore, Starks experts clarify that it is essential to wait approximately 48 hours after the operation before proceeding with the first post-operative shampoo. For this wash, it is advisable to use a suitable shampoo and avoid products that are potentially aggressive to the scalp. You will have to gently massage the entire head and in particular the grafting area to avoid detaching the crusts that form naturally after the operation and which disappear on average after a week. Finally, it is worth mentioning that we do not recommend use of gels, lacquers or any other hair product. Throughout the first phase, the shampoo will be done every day.

One month after the operation: gradual return to daily life

Once the first phase has passed, the second begins which allows more freedom to resume the life you want. During the second phase, the hair in the transplant area may fall out naturally, even if care has been taken to avoid rubbing. The reaction is perfectly normal and the final regrowth occurs only a few months after the operation. During the second phase it is therefore possible to return almost completely to daily life, but it is necessary to be patient before being able to observe the final result.

The restrictions are significantly lower than in the first phase. Consequently, even the diet may allow for exceptions. In terms of sporting activity it is preferable to remain cautious even if the recovery can take place after 15-20 days. The most important thing to avoid are activities that cause excessive sweating. However, there is another constraint to respect during the first month after the operation: exposure to the sun. UV rays can cause depigmentation of the skin in the graft area. It is therefore advisable to limit exposure to the sun but also UV tanning lamps.

Finally, to take care of the hair, Starks transplant professionals recommend always using a delicate shampoo. While washing, it is preferable to gently massage the scalp. However, if you are used to washing your hair only 2-3 times a week, you can resume your usual washing routine. Furthermore, it is advisable to always avoid products that are aggressive for the scalp and more particularly for the grafts, such as hair dryers, gels or hairsprays.


Three months after the operation, you are finally starting to see the results!

Once three months have passed since the operation, satisfactory results can finally be observed. Hair regrowth takes several months to be clearly visible but after 90 days the results start to show. According to Starks experts, at this point the density of the hair will be much higher and it will be possible to fully appreciate the new hair. As a result, there will no longer be any limitations related to the transplant, it will be possible to expose yourself to the sun and carry out normal physical activity. That doesn’t mean you should neglect your new hair though! Even if you haven’t undergone a transplant, it’s always preferable to take care of your hair… Regular cleansing and effective treatments can restore vitality to the hair and promote its growth.

To check your full recovery after surgery, your doctor usually recommends a follow-up visit six months after the operation. While waiting for this medical examination, you can fix the cut and go to the hairdresser or barber. A light cut will in fact help the hair regain its dynamism and promote regrowth. But which cuts to choose after a hair transplant? What do you need to know before going to the hairdresser or barber?


What men’s hairstyles to adopt after a transplant?

After a transplant it may be possible to opt for a different cut. The possibilities are many! According to Starks experts, after the past months your hair will have grown back and you will have enough length to choose any type of haircut. Currently you can choose many different haircuts depending on your style, age or personality.

Men who prefer very short hair can shave it to a reasonable length. It is always possible to wear short hair after the transplant but it is advisable to maintain a minimum length for one year after the surgery.

On the other hand, men who prefer short hair on the sides and a good length on the top of the head can opt for the “undercut”, which consists of hair elegantly shaved at the temples and longer on the top of the head. It is an original and very trendy cut in recent years. Also, the undercut looks great with a neatly trimmed three-day beard. Finally, for men who prefer longer hair, anything is possible. You can make a gradient or even wear your hair tied up. Either way, the new hairstyles will allow you to fully appreciate your new hair.


What women’s hairstyles to choose after a transplant?

La perdita dei capelli interessa sia gli uomini che le donne, e in entrambi i casi è possibile optare per il trapianto. Secondo Starks, professionista dei trapianti, la procedura è esattamente la stessa e le fasi post-operatorie si svolgono nello stesso modo. Tuttavia, una volta arrivata la fase del parrucchiere, gusti e desideri possono divergere. Ecco perché è importante prestare attenzione al primo taglio dopo il trapianto di capelli.

Da un lato, per le donne che desiderano sfoggiare capelli corti, il consiglio è simile a quello rivolto agli uomini che scelgono la stessa opzione. È necessario evitare di tagliare i capelli troppo corti e preservare una lunghezza minima, indipendentemente dalla tecnica utilizzata. Inoltre, occorre prestare la massima cautela riguardo alla zona del trapianto, dove i capelli devono avere una lunghezza minima di pochi centimetri.

Le donne che preferiscono invece maggiore lunghezza possono scegliere un taglio corto squadrato o capelli più lunghi davanti e più corti dietro. La scelta è vasta ed è opportuno anche ascoltare i consigli di un professionista del settore. Inoltre, se si dispone di una certa lunghezza, è possibile legare i capelli come si desidera. Una bella acconciatura raccolta valorizzerà il viso. Una coda di cavallo, invece, ti consentirà di muoverti come vuoi. In altre parole, avrai l’imbarazzo della scelta!


È possibile utilizzare tinture e altri prodotti per i capelli?

Dopo aver effettuato il controllo con il medico che si è occupato del follow-up dell’operazione, non sarà più necessario preoccuparsi dei capelli. Sei mesi dopo l’operazione, infatti, la tua vita sarà tornata quella di sempre, con in più splendidi capelli. A questo punto potrai nuovamente asciugare i capelli con il phon, nonché utilizzare prodotti per lo styling quali lacca, gel o cera. Potrai acconciare i capelli come preferisci. Inoltre, potrai anche farti una tinta. In tal caso, gli esperti Starks consigliano di rivolgersi a un professionista che utilizzi prodotti delicati, adatti al tipo di capelli e al colore originario.


Non dimenticare di prenderti regolarmente cura dei tuoi capelli!

Diversi mesi dopo l’operazione, il trapianto sarà un ricordo e ti sarai perfettamente abituato ai tuoi nuovi capelli. Tuttavia, ciò non significa che potrai trascurare del tutto la tua chioma! Prendertene cura è essenziale, che si tratti di pochi minuti al giorno o di trattamenti e coccole che richiedono più tempo. Consigliamo quindi di lavare i capelli due-tre volte a settimana, massaggiando il cuoio capelluto per alcuni minuti. Opta per uno shampoo adatto al tuo tipo di capelli (secchi, grassi, fragili, ecc.). Infine, spazzolando i capelli tutti i giorni contribuirai a favorirne la crescita e a evitare una caduta importante.

Infine, gli esperti Starks considerano sempre fondamentale prendersi grande cura dei capelli, ma ciò è valido ancora di più per chi si è sottoposto a un trapianto di capelli. Dedicando attenzioni e cure ai tuoi capelli potrai sfoggiare una chioma setosa e lucente che continuerà a crescere nel tempo. Ora sai come prenderti cura dei capelli e tagliarli dopo un trapianto.
