I have heard and read that the grafts are safe from 8-10 days (because I'm at day 9) so I'm particularly interest in this .My Dr.told me I can cut my hair 14 days post op.I would assume that shaving your head will not harm your hair as the grafts should be secure.I would just be careful around the donor area ,maybe ask for a scissor cut until they see the scar. if you had a strip surgery..

There is a post by Dr Feller (?) I believe that cautions about waiting a little longer, as the shaver may pull or tug on the transplanted hairs affecting the new follicles. I think a search will bring it up.

go dense or go home

 

Unbiased advice and opinions based on 25 plus years of researching and actual experience with hair loss, hair restoration via both FUT & FUE, SMP, scalp issues including scalp eczema & seborrheic dermatitis and many others

Guys, can I use a trimmer to shave (0 size) my hair? I am @ 20 days post op and not lost transplanted hairs..

 

Thank you

 

Manish after my first procedure (about 25 days postop) I used a shaver (with the rotary blades) and ran them lightly over the head without touching my scalp too much. Did not seem to effect the results. However my Dr did caution me against it as he said the direction of the transplanted grafts may alter. But I will take my chances after a month or so.

i shaved my hair without touching my scalp too :) btw have a silly question fue scars are permanent or will it heal in due time( may be 30-40% less scars after 6-8months ) ??
