My name is Tony Richards and when I turned 40 years old I began having unusual health symptoms including a powerful thirst and numbness in my hands. I went to see my doctor and after running tests he determined that I had diabetes. My doctor prescribed medicine for my condition and he also told me to make some lifestyle changes or the diabetes would get worse. I didn't want that to happen so I began researching ways to control diabetes. After implementing these ideas, my condition actually got better and I was able to reduce the amount of medication I was taking. If your doctor has diagnosed you with diabetes, it's very beneficial for you to read my blog so your condition doesn't worsen. I hope that by following this blog, it will help you to control your diabetes too.
Caring for your newly installed hair transplants the right way is important to the look of your strands and their longevity, especially when it comes to washing your hair. Over time, you'll be able to clean your strands with the same practices and products that you did in the past. However, for the time being, you might need to tweak your wash routine.
Wait to Wash
Resist the urge to wash your hair right away. As part of your care instructions, the professional who installed the transplants should have instructed you not to wash your hair for a specific period, such as 24 to 48 hours. Shampooing your hair too early can damage the transplant installation and destroy the newly installed follicles.
Adjust the Water Flow
Check the pressure setting on your showerhead to ensure it is not too high. You'll want to adjust to a lower setting while you wash your hair. Even once you have clearance to wash your hair, if the water pressure is too high, it can still damage the implanted follicles and cause them to fall out. If you can't adjust the water, fill a cup of water and pour it over your head instead.
Use a Gentle Cleanser
Stick with shampoos that lather well while you recover. Shampoos that you have to work hard to lather aren't good because they force you to rub your scalp and the hair transplants too abrasively, which can cause the implantation process to fail. Additionally, if you received a medical shampoo to use post recovery, make sure you use it in its entirety before using another product.
Skip the Scalp Massage
One of the more exciting parts of the shampoo process is the scalp massage. However, this step is one that you'll need to skip for a while after the transplants are installed. In the first days after the procedure, massaging your scalp will damage the implant. Additionally, as the days go on and your scalp begins to heal and scab, the scalp massage will irritate these scabs and cause them to reopen. The result of this process can be quite a bit of discomfort and prolonged healing. Don't add a massage back into your washing process until you're fully healed.
When it comes to caring for your transplants, the best thing for you to do is to speak with a hair restoration professional. Whether it's a question about shampooing your hair or another concern, one of these professionals will be able to assist you.
