The one surefire solution to get rid of hair loss once and for all is to get a hair transplant. It is a procedure that take time and requires a person to remain patient for about a year to see the full results. The wait though is well worth it. Soon after the surgery takes place, there are certain everyday habits that one must avoid for some time in order to ensure that there are no ill effects. This care is temporary but one that should be done. Here is a look at some of these habits to avoid.

[su_box title=”Driving” box_color=”#e95b37″]This does not have a direct impact on the transplant but make sure that someone else drives you home after the procedure. This simple task can become tough after hours of hair transplant surgery for the patient and may become hazardous.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”Itching” box_color=”#e95b37″]There is likely going to be some itching in the recipient site, avoid it. Itching at this stage can cause the newly transplanted follicles to get damaged and can have adverse effects on hair transplant results.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”Workout” box_color=”#e95b37″]Avoid workout for a couple of days after the transplant. If you are used to weight lifting or heavy workouts, do not do them for at least ten days. Discuss your doctor before resuming to ensure that there are no damaging effects on the hair transplant.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”Massaging” box_color=”#e95b37″]Massaging the scalp is good in general but do not do it after the transplant. It can damage follicles. Generally massaging can be resumed in a couple of weeks.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”Rigorous Shampooing” box_color=”#e95b37″]Shampooing is generally started after a couple of days of the surgery. However, rigorously rubbing the scalp is a big no no. Be gentle with your hair at this point in time.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”Smoking” box_color=”#e95b37″]Smoking deprives the blood of enough oxygen and that can ruin the chances of success of your hair transplant. Do not smoke for as long as possible though avoid it for at least a month after the transplant.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”Drinking Alcohol” box_color=”#e95b37″]Do not drink alcohol for at least two days after the transplant. It has ill effects on the surgery and can be a reason for failure of a hair transplant surgery.[/su_box]

[su_box title=”Sports” box_color=”#e95b37″]If you are a sports person, it is best to not indulge into such activities for a couple of weeks. Too much activity can hurt the scalp which is generally pretty tight after the surgery.[/su_box]
