When can I start wearing my hairpiece attached with tape? (Photo)

Currently i am wearing a hairpiece attached with tape to hide my high hairline. I consider doing a hair transplant with 1500 grafts to lower the hairline. To hide the hair transplant i would like to start wearing my hairpiece again about 14 days after the surgery. Is this possible

Hair piece post transplant

It would be best not to wear a hairpiece at all rather wear a hat.  If you can have a hairpiece that is not being glued to scalp such as the ones that have a clip to be attached to the other areas of scalp, you can use it.

Wearing hairpiece after transplant

The only way you could safely do this would be to apply any tape or adhesive to the skin below the transplanted hairline, and this would not provide a natural look. You'd be better off using clips.

Wearing a hair piece with tape

wearing a hair piece with tape is something that is a terrible idea. Hair systems should be change from glues and tapes to clips and the hair systems must be clean when worn.

Thank you for your question, you can not wear ıt on the transplant hair as ıt would cause the haır folıcle to fall out. It is best to wear a hat after the procedure.
