Can I get the sun after a hair transplant?

After the intervention, it is very important to follow the indicated postoperative rules. It is normal for questions to arise about what we can and cannot do, such as: Can I get the sun after a hair transplant?

You have to properly protect yourself from the weather, either from the sun or the rain for example, after a hair transplant. During the first month the whole area is more sensitive, so it is important to take into account the rules indicated by the team.

Next, we will tell you how the climate affects the graft and how you should protect yourself from the sun.

How does the weather affect the hair graft?

The hair graft during the first month is much more sensitive, so it is important to follow the postoperative rules if we want an optimal result in the intervention. Besides knowing that can not give us the sun after a hair transplant, you have to know how the climate affects it.

And it is that the sun, the rain, the wind and the dust are not allies for a good result. During the month - and even in the next few months - they can affect the grafted follicular units, and even cause problems such as folliculitis or similar.

Can I get the sun after a hair transplant?

When answering the question about whether or not we can get the sun after a hair transplant, we have to know that the answer is no. During the first month we must avoid direct exposure to the sun, as well as to the water and the pool.

But it is important that we know that we will not only have to protect ourselves during the first month! As long as the area is red and no hair has come out, we will have to protect ourselves from the sun and other external agents.

Why should we do this? The sun can leave marks on us and, as the scalp area is more sensitive, it can cause it to become hyperpigid. If this happens, the area will be darker and will affect healing. For that reason, it cannot give us the sun after a hair transplant.
