How to Take Care of Transplanted Hair in Winter?

Hair transplant is a cosmetic procedure with a very high success rate today; the improvements on the techniques and technological devices used in the procedure enables the patients to get the maximum benefit out of the procedure and increases the number of the patients who opted it. As with the procedure itself, the recovery and the aftercare of the transplanted hair is very important too. Hair transplant’s recovery period is quite comfortable comparing many other cosmetic surgeries; however, the final appearance of the results takes relatively longer due to the fact that the transplanted follicles require adequate time to settle in their new place and regulate their growth cycle. While patients are able to go back to their daily life in a few days after the operation, appropriate aftercare practices still carry big importance during this period between the operation and the final results. Hair transplant can be performed in every season safely; however, the best season for it is often considered as winter. In winter, as in every season, the transplanted hair should be treated according to seasonal conditions.

Will my transplanted hair get affected from the cold weather?

It is very safe to have hair transplant during winter as long as the aftercare instructions are followed carefully and the adequate amount of care and attention is given to the transplanted hair. Here are a few points patients should be careful with in winter;
  • Keep your hair transplant area away from the cold and rain. Especially if you are in the early recovery period of your hair transplant, you should protect the area from the rain and cold. Patients are advised to stay indoors as much as they can during winter; however, if you need to go outside, you can use loose hats and berets to protect your head from the external factors. The looseness of the hats you use is very important because tight hats can also be harmful for your transplanted hair and may cause some extra side effects during the recovery period.
  • Keep your hair and scalp moist. Our skin and hair are more prone to get dry during winter due to the cold and windy weather. It is essential to use the prescribed lotions and shampoos to keep your scalp and hair moist. These products are beneficial on keeping the hair transplant area away from the damages of the dryness and supporting the healing. It is also advisable to be careful with nutrition and stay hydrated to maintain the moisture in your scalp.
  • Keep the sweating under control. Most of the people are very eager to dress in layers, using the heater at the highest level or exercise during winter to be protected from the cold. However, these practices may cause sweating when done excessively; sweat may cause infections and irritation on the scalp and can make your healing process quite uncomfortable. Therefore, patients should be careful with the practices which may cause them to sweat during winter.
The basic rules to keep your hair transplant results safe during winter are not at all difficult to be followed; with enough attention, hair transplant is a safe and successful operation in every season.
