I am looking for a “gentle” brush (not so much for my hair, but for my scalp so that I don’t harm my transplants while the scalp is tender. I am also concerned about brushing taking out some of the hair I still have. Do you have a recommendation for me?
A soft brush or one with wide teeth will be gentler on your scalp/hair than the standard comb. Many people want to treat these new hairs from a transplant as special. As the scalp does not have normal sensation, a soft brush may also help. I tell those people who are actively losing their hair not to brush too hard, for the hairs that are fragile may be helped out of the head of the balding person with vigorous brushing.
