Many people experience hair-related issues, like hair thinning or hair loss, that may lead to balding. A variety of temporary treatments are available for treating hair loss but these treatments only claim to provide desired results.

If you want a permanent solution to avoid wasting your money on temporary treatments, consider FUE hair transplant in Dubai. It is a quick hair transplant that provides permanent results.

Hair transplantation includes surgical and non-surgical procedures. While FUE hair transplant is an effective, non-surgical solution for hair loss, people worry about regrowth after the transplant. According to professional surgeons, hair regrowth can take at least 6 months to become completely prominent and natural. But for that to happen smoothly, patients must follow the post-op care instructions carefully.

Is sweating bad after hair transplant?

The short answer is yes.

Sweating is not helpful for the newly transplanted hair. It can hinder the regrowth process by causing complications after a transplant. Patients are directed to avoid any type of strenuous physical activities that may cause excessive sweating. Due to excessive sweating, the scalp starts itching more that can lead to severe infections. As a result, the newly transplanted hair follicles are affected. They may become permanently damaged and start falling out.

So, if you live in a hotter environment, you must make sure to keep the scalp as cool as possible. Try staying inside for at least a month after a transplant. Moreover, avoid any type of direct sun exposure and cover your scalp whenever you go out. Also, try to avoid excessive and strenuous physical activities, like heavy workout or running, etc.
