Hair dying and cutting of hair after FUE Transplant?

In OUR opinion as well as other top clinics there are a few rules for the dying of hair after a transplant:1. Do not dye your hair until the scabs have all healed up.2. If you must dye your hair then do so within the 2 and 3 month period of time. The newly transplanted grafts should be in a dormant state and should not be affected by a NATURAL HAIR DYE and NOT harsher chemical ammonia based dyes. 3. When the new hairs begin to sprout around the 3rd month, please at least a month so that they have grown out some before re-dying your hair. As far as the electric cutting of your hair, you can always cut your hair after two weeks post op and forever after.
