3 months after your surgery

At 3 months following your hair transplant procedure, you should still avoid hitting your head under all circumstances. I also advise you to avoid using any type of hair shaving machine until the sixth month after your procedure. You may, however, trim the hair with scissors when deemed necessary.

If you are well-healed 3 months after a transplant, you can resume all normal activity with your hair.  Grooming can continue as you normally would for your hair.
