Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE is the latest technique for hair transplant. Suitable for male and female to restore the hair naturally
Take care to avoid cotton towels with harsh, coarse textures. You might be used to simply rubbing your hair vigorously to dry it quickly, but this can be a big mistake; this can be a tough habit to break, but it’s vital you do. Never scratch at the area of the scalp treated and sleep with a minimum of two pillows under your head, to keep it elevated.
While female pattern baldness is permanent, non-surgical treatments like Minoxidil have been shown to promote hair growth in women experiencing female pattern hair loss. These tend to be more effective in the early stages of hair loss. They’re also suitable as a supplementary treatment after FUE hair transplant treatment.
It’s natural you’ll want to have your hair cut, but this should be left until after one month of recovery. Both the recipient and donor areas can be tended to. New hairs will be growing after this time, and the overall thickness will continue to improve as the results become more visible.
No hats should be worn for the first three weeks of your post-transplant recovery, and direct sunlight must be avoided for between six and eight weeks (along with exposure to cold and windy conditions). A loose cap or headscarf can be worn after three weeks to protect your hair. You need to keep clear of physical exertion for the first three weeks too.
Hair loss is a frustrating problem for millions of men and women. Factors such as diet, stress, and medications can lead to hair loss but genes can also play an important role in male pattern baldness.
