After a hair transplant surgery, the first wash is typically recommended to be done one day after the operation. This first wash helps to clean any blood, oil, scabs, and other debris from the scalp. However, this first washing should be done gently and without applying too much pressure to the scalp. For the next 10 days following the first wash, you should only wash your hair in the prescribed manner. During this time, it is recommended that you gently touch your scalp and lightly pat your hair instead of rubbing it when you feel any itching or discomfort. Additionally, you should use a towel to gently pat your hair dry instead of rubbing it vigorously. Following these guidelines when washing your hair can help you to heal more quickly after the surgery. However, if you have any questions or concerns, it is recommended that you speak with your doctor.
