Am I losing grafts? How do care for/wash hair 12 days + post HT to ensure best results possible? (photos)
Doctor Answers 4
At 12 days it's pretty difficult to lose grafts. At this point you can rub the shampoo in, which should loosen the crusts up and help remove them. The grafts won't come out if you just rub your scalp gently with your fingers. You can even use baby oil if the shampoo isn't enough to get all the scabs, it'll just take a while to rinse out.
It is best to contact your doctor. Your doctor can show you and even wash your hair at the clinic.
How to take care of my hair after FUE hair transplant?
We ask our patients to keep shampoo longer (10-20 min) after day 5 if they still have scabs. That helps them be able to remove their scabs easier.
In your case at day 12 you should wash your hair more aggressively. I see you still have a lot of scabs that should have been gone by now.
