What will make my hair look thicker while my newly transplanted hair grows in?
Hair transplant recipients must be patient before judging the results as it can take up to a year to benefit fully from the procedure. The good news is that the results are permanent, as long as a qualified surgeon performed the hair-loss replacement.
Until then, try these tips to help your hair look as thick as possible:
- Wear your hair longer on the top and shorter on the sides. This will give a full appearance.
- Use a mild shampoo but never more than once a day. This preserves the natural oils that provide shine and volume.
- Consider using a mousse, gel, pomade or volumizing hair spray. Volumizing sprays are designed to hold volume regardless of the hair's texture.
- For women, try a cut that is not dependent on a part. In general, shorter cuts work best to hide thinning hair.
- For wavy hair, you might be able to wear it longer while the grafts of the hair transplant grow in.
