Majority of the population is dealing with hair loss. While some kind of hair loss may be due to illness or poor nutrition, some may be due to the side effect of some medicines or surgical processes. Such type of hair loss occurs on a temporary basis and usually gets healed on its own, as soon as the causative factors are controlled.
This is not the case with male pattern balding, which means permanent hair loss.

People usually opt for hair transplant in such a case. It is an invasive way which helps in treating hair loss. The result after hair loss may take a certain amount t of time to show up. The chances of the surgery being a success also depend on the way you care for your hair after the transplant.

How to take care of your hair after a transplant
Post-transplant,you need to take care in the following ways-
1. Be gentle
Treat your scalp gently. Don't put pressure or shampoo your hair till your doctor gives thumbs up. Use a mild shampoo and apply it gently. Rinsing, and patting dry should also be carried out in a gentle manner. If you put too much stress or pressure on your scalp, the transplanted hair might fall off, leaving all the efforts down the drain.

2. Don't scratch
Avoid contact of the scalp with the fingers as much as possible. Don't give into the slight itching which is common after transplant. Scratching will delay the healing of the wounds. It may also lead to swelling, redness, and inflammation as the skin is not properly healed.

3. Avoid strenuous activity
It is advised to avoid all physical activities which are strenuous. Please postpone jogging, bicycling and other sports for at least 10 days. This step is crucial in ensuring that the transplanted hair does not fall out. You can resume these activities after a period of 10 days after the surgery.

4. Have a nutritious diet
Have a healthy and nutritious diet. Include a lot of antioxidants like squash, peppers, cherries,tomatoes, and blueberries. At the same time, avoid eating foods to which you are allergic. If you are allergic to soy, wheat or dairy products, avoid them completely. Keeping yourself hydrated will also help. Drinking at least 6 to 8 glasses of water will be wonderful.

5. Massage your head
After your doctor grants you permission to do as you please, you can massage it gently. Use essential oils such as rosemary, peppermint, and sage and make a mix by putting three drops of each in 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Use this mixture to massage your scalp once or twice a day. It has been found in research that this mixture helps in promoting the growth of new hair.

6. Use Minoxidil
Minoxidil application can be used to stimulate hair growth. But the application should be done only after you have gained the permission of the doctor. If the doctor permits you, apply the topical application gently on your scalp after cleaning it. One should be careful about washing one's fingers well after applying Minoxidil.
