When can I shave after hair transplant?

Shaving your hair 11 weeks after transplant should not cause any problems.  By that time you can do anything you normally would do with your own natural hair.

Shaving after a hair transplant?

Peter1111,

To shave 11 weeks after a hair transplant whether it is beard or scalp should be totally without consequence. There is less risk of a knick with the electric shaver but the traditional two edge razor is a very close and gratifying experience.

At this point in time you can shave with a razor or an electric clipper, either way you should be safe

  I'm not sure if you saw my response to your previous question (link provided below), but that is exactly the type of razor I was talking about. I'm not familiar with this particular brand and model, but give it a try. If you'd like to contact me directly, I'd be happy to provide you with some more detailed guidance including blades, creams, soaps, and brushes.

Happy shaving!
