DHI, short for direct hair implant is a modern hair transplantation method in which the surgeons perform the least painful and the safest incisions. DHI hair transplantation is very similar to the famous FUE method. The only difference is the implanter device that is used during the process of transplantation of hair follicles. Even though it’s one of the safest and least painful procedures in the world, there are things that should be done during the DHI recovery.
When it comes to a hair transplant, the main purpose is the procedure’s success. Nobody wants to undergo an aesthetic procedure that they already know that it will fail. The worst scenario about aesthetic procedures is the possible failure of the surgery. And you know what’s even worse than that? a repair job.
You may need to get the damage on your body fixed with an additional procedure. You are not guaranteed to achieve your previous dreams if you are obliged to get a repair job. If you are qualified for a DHI hair transplant and underwent it successfully, there are lots of things that you should take into consideration during your recovery time.
Things To Be Done During DHI Recovery
You don’t have to anything special after your DHI procedure. It’s an invasive hair transplantation method just like an FUE or FUT, and you need to do the same things that people do after such procedures, as well. Here are the things that you should do after DHI:
- Don’t wash your hair about 4-5 days
- Don’t interrupt with your hair plugs ( pulling, scratching )
- Don’t smoke, don’t drink alcohol for a long time.
- Drink lots of water
- Don’t expose your head to sunlights
- Always wear a hat when you are outside.
- Use minoxidil or any other hair growth drugs only if your surgeon suggested you.
