Use of hot roller after Procedure
Would recommend avoidance of anything hot to your hair and scalp. Secondly it can lead to traction alopecia of the transplanted and existing hairs.
I would recommend if you are going to use it regardless, waiting at least 12 months prior to application of a hot roller to your hair/scalp.
Time for a style change. . .
The best way to heal a wound is with no tension on the surrounding tissue. Tension can cause your body to heal with a wider scar. You can start to put momentary tension on the wound after a few months (like brushing your hair backward) but a couple of weeks is too early. You should wait longer than that before putting sustained tension on the wound (like wearing your hair pulled back tight or putting on a hairpiece that pulls across the incision).
