Dandruff after transplantation

Hair transplantation is a major step towards restoring confidence, providing permanent and effective solutions for severe hair loss. Although this procedure is the best solution for many cases, the appearance of dandruff after transplantation may raise some concerns.

To understand the causes and solutions of this phenomenon, let's explore together the effects of the appearance of dandruff after hair transplantation and how to effectively deal with these challenges. We will also clarify when the appearance of dandruff is considered normal and when to seek medical advice for the necessary help.

 

Causes of Hair Loss After Transplantation

The formation of dandruff after transplantation is a natural occurrence after hair transplantation. During surgery, the surgeon makes very small holes in the recipient area for hair follicles. As a result, some fluids may come out and accumulate (edema). After the surgery, those fluids come out of the pores or open holes, dry, and mix with dead skin cells to form dandruff.

Dandruff may also appear in the donor area, as a result of extracting hair follicles, which produces small blood spots that turn into dandruff when they dry.

When Does Hair Loss After Transplantation Fall Out?

Dandruff usually appears 2-3 days after hair transplantation using the DHI technique. Initially, the dandruff is strongly attached to the skin, but after the 10th day and following the doctor's advice and good hair care, the dandruff will fall out gradually (but this duration depends on its density, size, and number).

In addition, some short hair also falls out with the fall of dandruff, which is completely normal and should not cause concern.

 

Removing Dandruff After Hair Transplantation

You should now feel comfortable knowing that hair loss after transplantation is a natural occurrence within the recovery period after surgery. Here are some steps that the most experienced surgeons recommend for removing dandruff after hair transplantation:

  • In the first few days after transplantation, it is recommended not to touch or scratch the dandruff, and any attempt to remove it should be avoided.
  • To relieve itching, it is recommended to moisten the transplanted area with a warm salt solution (spray) until the dandruff falls out.
  • Wash your hair with baby shampoo after 3 days of surgery and rinse it with warm water.
  • From the 8th day, it is recommended to massage the scalp gently after moistening it with circular movements to accelerate the healing process and get rid of dandruff.
  • It is essential to use a pH5 shampoo and dandruff remover foam. The foam should be applied gently to the scalp and left for 30 minutes to soften the dandruff (do not use your fingernails to remove dandruff).

 

The Importance of Removing Hair Loss After Transplantation

Dandruff should be removed on the 10th day. Otherwise, its accumulation can lead to clogging of the skin pores, which prevents sweating and causes major problems for hair health. The importance of dandruff falling out is as follows:

  • Reducing itching: Dandruff causes itching, which may prompt the person to scratch it or remove it in the wrong way.
  • Healthy growth of hair follicles: Dandruff creates a moist environment that promotes bacterial growth. Removing dandruff prevents bacterial infection and inflammation, leading to healthy hair growth.
  • Preventing the formation of scars: Which may result from itching and scratching dandruff, thus moving hair follicles from their place and affecting the final result of hair transplantation.

 

 

The Secret Behind Salt Solution After Hair Transplantation

We mentioned earlier moistening the scalp using a spray of salt solution after hair transplantation (the day after transplantation). So the secret behind using salt solution after hair transplantation is as follows:

  • Hair follicles recover faster.
  • Protect incisions from infection.
  • Reduce dandruff formation as much as possible.
  • Moisturize the scalp skin.
  • Reduce skin irritation.
