Is wearing pomade/gel in post-transplant hair a bad idea?

Recommended Posts

I had the HT at the end of last year, so it’s not recent. But I wonder if wearing pomade can be somehow not advisable. 

In case there’s no issue with wearing it, which type or brand do you recommend?

No absolutely not. Personally, I have used several brands. Layrite pomade is great. I also like American Crew Fiber for a matte finish. Currently, I use Redken Maneuvering Pomade.

Nothing wrong with using products.  What I've noticed, however, is the fact that people tend to over use it.  The hair then sticks together and it makes see through far more apparent.  So the trick is to use a little so the hair does not clump together.  Something else....

From time to time you'll notice, particularly shortly after a procedure, (6 months), the transplanted hair grows a bit different than the native stuff.  It will curl, grow in a slightly different direction, etc.  Gel helps to train the hair so eventually it will do what you want it to do.  

What make depends on what look you are going for.  Wet, dry, etc.  I am a fan of Bed Head.  They have an array of products depending on what you're trying to accomplish.

And what about clay vs pomade vs fiber vs cream... totally lost with so many choices. My hair is kinda short, and don’t want anything supersticky and shinny. Also being post-HT is still thin.

Can you post a picture of your hair? Have you tried hair fibers like toppik caboki?

Pics would definitely help to evaluate.
