hello doc, I have to questions
i recently had a HT via FUE on thursday, today is tuesday so it has been 5 days so far. I have been wearing a hat and realized that it was breaking off a few transplanted grafts. When I look closely the stub of transplanted hair is still in my scalp but the rest of it has broken off. Do you think I killed my grafts this way?
Another Question. I washed my hair on friday night (next day after ht procedure) but then i read some where that I wasn’t suppose to wash it for 3 days. Could washing my grafts with a sponge and water next day after HT damage the grafts completely?
Thank you for your time
I suppose if you see stubs of hair follicles out of your body with bulbs on them, it could reflect grafts and if that’s the case, what you lost will never grow. I’m really not sure what you’re seeing. A tight hat can pull out grafts, though the grafts should’ve been secured by the 5 day mark. I don’t know enough about your surgery — like where you had your hair transplant or what was really done.
You can wash your hair 12 hours after the surgery. As always, I am happy to answer all questions, but sometimes questions like these bother me. Why are you not asking this to your doctor? Why haven’t you got instruction on how to wash your hair after a hair transplant? Special instructions should’ve been supplied to you for the washing technique.
