I had my hair transplant surgery for my hair loss five days ago. I would like to know if I massage my hair with oil if my new transplanted hair roots will be affected or not?
The first two weeks after hair restoration surgery are extremely critical as the scalp is still healing. By day 9 or 10, the grafts should be tightly secured and you can apply anything that you would normally apply to your scalp. Some hair transplant patients however, do apply oil to their scalp to help loosen the scabs during the first 2 weeks. If you are going to do this, apply the oil with a dropper and don’t touch the transplanted area for the first 9 days.
