I have been told that I can use MSM after hair transplant surgery to speed up hair growth. Is this true?
MSM (Methyl Sulfonyl Methane) is a supplement which can be purchased at any vitamin store and may help speed up the rate of which the nails and hair grows. It can be purchased in the form of a pill or powder, both taken orally. The recommended dosage for speeding up nail and hair growth is 3000mg daily (2 X 1500mg pill per day).
Understand that there is a certain fallacy going around about MSM. Though it may help increase the speed of hair and nail growth, many hair transplant patients use it thinking that it will help jump start the transplanted hair. However, there is no proof of this.
What it MIGHT do however, is increase the rate at which natural hair grows. This might prove helpful for those patients who had their recipient area shaved for hair restoration surgery.
