Oil on donor area

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if putting oil on donor area to help healing and redness will work? 

Thinking of coconut oil . 

My hair Transplant was 6 weeks ago. 

Not sure if it is a good idea or not. Any views?

aloe vera seems to be the recommendation, I would imagine anything with skin healing properties is fine for the donor - especially at 6 weeks

At 6 weeks it’s probably fine but I would ask your surgeon. Like the previous posted said aloe seems to be recommended for skin healing. Personally I don’t use oils because I have an oily scalp already and don’t want clogged pores. Your scalp may be different

I also think this would be fine - but with anything of this nature, it's always best to run it by your doctor first. (Also, speaking of redness - also make sure that you're keeping the donor area out of the sun for the first 6 months.)

Zinc is known to have great healing properties also.

All the best on your journey.

Hello, do you mean the recipient? Or is it important to keep the donor out of the sun too?

Recipient primarily, as sunburn can damage the grafts... The hair in the donor area will typically grow back rather quickly and serve as a sunblock anyway, but I also chose to keep my entire head covered to be safe.
