When will you be able to get a haircut after hair transplant?
You must have told the barber about your hair loss experience. Your barber could advise you to get new haircuts as your hair loss worsens in order to get the greatest look with the hair you still have.
Once your hair has grown back after the hair transplant, you can get your previous haircut once more. It might resemble the hairstyles you had before to experiencing hair loss. We are aware that after receiving a hair transplant, many patients cannot wait to have their first haircut. They are entitled to feel impatient as well. So, when can I get a haircut after having a hair transplant is one of the most often asked questions concerning the surgery.
Dr. TAS will give you specific advices about the timescales from hair transplant surgery to your first haircut. In general, patients have to wait at least thirty days after Hair Transplant surgery.
Dr. TAS may suggest using specialist shampoos and specific aftercare instructions to promote healthy and faster healing process, since your scalp might be more sensitive than usual. You shouldn’t visit the barbers within this period.
You should check with Dr. TAS that all is well before your first haircut, then you should visit the hairdresser/barber.
Do hairdressers/barbers know how to cut your hair after hair transplant?
Hair transplant surgery is very common and popular these days with thousands of procedures being undertaken every year in Turkey. Most of the barbers are used to patients who were undergone for hair transplant. If you are not sure that he doesn’t have enough experience about it, you better talk with him before booking your appointment.
There is nothing particularly special or different about a scalp with transplanted hair, except for a possible sensitivity, so if you mention this when making your appointment with your hairdresser/barber they can be more careful and attentive.
How can you style your hair?
After your hair get enough time for growing, you can style it as you wish. In the early period after hair transplant, a shorter cut may be more suitable and easier to maintain, as well as looking more natural. If you have very light hair, you may be a little self-conscious about looking thinner on top.
It will make a significant impact if you apply a mousse or volumizing product and blow dry it with a specialized roll brush; this will motivate your hairdresser or barber to advise you on how to style your hair at the various phases of growth.
