First of all, I had a hair transplant of 5130 grafts in Germany exactly 14 days ago. All scabs and crusts were gone by day 8 and 9.
Now I’ve ordered Revita Shampoo and conditioner and I would like to know if I’m allowed to use such hair loss shampoos and conditioners 2 weeks post-operative. The lotion and shampoo the clinic has given to me is almost empty. I’m not going to use any cheap crap shampoos again and I’m a bit afraid and confused about what I’m going to use due all of these shampoos and conditioners available on the market.
You should be able to use pretty much any kind of shampoo you like 2 weeks after the procedure. However, check with your hair restoration clinic before using anything. They may have some post-operative restrictions, and you always want to follow the post-surgical instructions as closely as possible.
Keep in mind that Revita does have a small amount of ketoconazole in it, and this has been associated with some initial sheds when starting to use the product. This means that you may see 3-4 months of increased shedding or hair loss before it starts actually coming back healthier.
This shouldn’t affect the transplant itself at all, but just something to keep in mind. The fact that it has this active ingredient is all the more reason to speak with your clinic before using it as well.
Hope this helps!
