Apart from shampooing once a day, i didnt do anything else. I hit my 15th day mark yesterday and applied coconut oil. I am planning on applying oil for next few days to moisturize the skin. Lets see if that takes care of the valleys.
Thank you for your comments gentlemen. I am fairly convinced its not an anomaly. My surgeon mentioned its due to dryness and will go away with time. I wanted to use oils/lotions but was asked to leave it alone.
Hello HRN, This is my first post but I have been chatting with few folks here through direct messaging. I finally took the leap to do the transplant (FUT). It has been 10 days since my surgery. I noticed stripes, void of hair since 7th day (coinciding with the removal of sutures). Initially, it was one narrow stripe which grew into a full network in the last 3 days. I am following the post care instructions very carefully, except that I am washing my hair only once (I have cold problem with excess head wash). I have run this by my doctor and she said its fine as long as I dont sweat or so
