Oily Scalp

An oily scalp shouldn't have an impact on the growth of your newly transplanted hairs. It may be a sign of poor hygiene and that you need to wash thoroughly or you may just naturally have a very oily scalp. Either way once you can wash your hair normally the oils shouldn't be as obvious on your head.

Outcome of hair transplant

oily scalp will not effect the result of hair transplant. But it is important to clean the transplant area well after HT, otherwise oil and dirt may provide a good milieu for infection.

Oily scalp

you should have a consultation with a hair restoration surgeon who can evaluate your scalp and hairs, as well as discuss the options available to you. post op care and washing will be crucial to you, especially with the oily scalp but that alone should not affect the result of your surgery.
