How can I cut my hair after a FUE hair transplant?
We tell clients they can have any hair style they please, but that they should wait 3 weeks before getting a haircut after their procedure.
In the United Kingdom, hair loss affects almost half of the population, and it can be a challenging condition. Hair loss can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance since having a full head of luxuriant hair is perceived as the ideal beauty. Plus, other aspects of your life, such as aging or romantic relationships, can be affected by hair loss. Hair transplants, a relatively new discovery in hair restoration technology, now provide a long-term solution for people suffering from hair loss.
More and more patients are turning to FUE hair transplants and hair transplant surgery as a result of recent technological advancements and increased success rates. Hair transplants in Chicago are becoming increasingly popular among the general population as experts like Dr. Vinay Rawlani use them to disguise thinning or receding hair.
The thought of going to the barber or hairdresser may have previously left you with doubt if you have experienced hair loss. Because of your newfound self-confidence, you may be ready to visit the barber or hairdressers to get your haircut or styled in a new way. The following are some things to keep in mind when getting a haircut after a hair transplant:
The First Month Following a FUT or FUE
The first month following a hair restoration in Chicago needs a bit more attention and care for your scalp and hair than you typically would. If you’re dealing with scabs and new hair growth in the first week, you should apply a special shampoo or saline solution to the affected regions. It’s also a good idea to try to wash and dry your hair with less force, especially while shampooing and towel drying. You should also refrain from using a hairdryer at this time.
If you observe a few hairs falling out, don’t worry. Although the hair may fall out, the hair follicle will remain intact, and new hair will grow in its place. There’s no need to be frightened at this point.
The donor region may become more obvious if you have a short haircut since your natural hair will continue to grow. You can, however, get your hair trimmed after around three weeks without causing any harm to the transplants or new hair.
Visit your doctor before getting a haircut to make sure your head is recovering correctly after a hair transplant. A fresh haircut may worsen the region and slow down the healing process if the healing process is taking longer than typical and there is still a lot of redness, swelling, and scabbing.
Because your hairdresser/barber may not be familiar with hair transplants, it’s advisable to seek the advice of an expert rather than your hairdresser/barber.
What’s The Best Style Of Haircut For Me?
You can do any hairstyle you want. If your scalp has healed properly, the risk of hair transplants becoming dislodged is quite low. Because of this, you can select whatever hairdo you wish. To hide the gap in length between their newly transplanted hair and their natural hair, some men choose to shave their hair short on their first haircut after the procedure.
The hair will then be able to maintain its current length as it grows. A voluminous style can also be used to conceal donor hair that is still developing. Your first haircut is mostly a matter of personal preference. When you have more hair to work with, the process of choosing a style that works for you becomes more enjoyable.
Hair Coloring and Styling
As you get a new hairstyle after hair transplant, you may want to use styling creams, chemical dyes, or heat treatments as you did with your previous hairstyles. However, these procedures should be avoided for at least 3-4 weeks, much as getting a haircut. A hairdryer can burn your scalp if you’re still numb in the region where you had your transplant.
As a result, young follicles could be damaged by extreme heat. In the early phases of growth, your new follicles may be more susceptible to chemicals and styling agents, therefore you may experience a bad reaction.
If you wish to dye your hair, you should wait at least four weeks and consult with your hair transplant doctor before doing so. Even if you’ve previously used the dye, you should still perform a patch test since the fresh hair follicle may react differently.
After A Hair Transplant, Would My Barber Or Hairdresser Know How To Cut My Hair Properly?
There are thousands of hair transplant surgeries performed each year to restore patients’ hair. Most hairdressers and barbers can cut transplant patients’ hair, as it’s now a popular practice. To be certain that they will want to cut your hair, you should check with them first before making an appointment. Other than likely sensitivity, there is nothing unusual or different about the scalp with transplanted hair, therefore your barber or hairdresser will accommodate your demands if you tell them while booking your appointment.
What’s The Best Way To Style My Hair?
You may style your hair however you choose once you’ve given it enough time to grow. If you’ve recently had hair transplant surgery, you may find that a shorter, more natural-looking cut is both more convenient and simpler to manage Blow drying using a particular roller brush and using a mousse or thick product can make a significant impact, and your hairdresser can help you determine the best ways for you to style your hair at various phases of growth.
