Our body,

skin and hair are under the effects of outside factors. Especially after a hair transplant operation you need to care for your hair much more than before. Every operation is sensitive and if you want to keep your new look for long then you should also be careful of your lifestyle too. In this blog let us have a look at the 3 ways of maintaining your hair after hair transplant.

Eat Smarter

A well known saying for your health “you are what you eat” and it is so true. Every food and nutrition has an impact on your health. If you eat healthier then your body, skin and hair becomes much more beautiful. First of all alcohol and smoking are harmful to hair growth. Also spicy food and food with high acidic levels may have a negative impact on your hair growth, these foods have no direct effects but can slow the growth of follicles or shorten the resting phase of the hair growth cycle.

Best foods for your hair health;

  • SeaFood

Shrimp has a great protein, vitamin D and B vitamins provider and has also zinc and some omega3 fatty acids.

Oyster is another source for hair growth which has a high level of zinc. However it may not be attractive to eat oysters daily. Zinc is essential for hair growth and lack of this mineral can result in telogen effluvium. The balance is important as too much zinc may also lead to hair reduction so if you join a party and get offered oysters, do not miss to eat and enjoy!

Salmon is a good choice to have omega 3 fatty acid. It helps hair growing and supports the hair thickness and volume. 

  • Egg

Eggs are rich in protein and biotin. And these are the best friends of healthy hair. The hair follicles are made from protein and if you consume eggs you can have adequate levels of protein to feed your hair. And biotin is the important element for protein which is known as keratin. It makes the hair strand stronger and gives volume. So eggs are the best food for your hair health. Enjoy eating eggs on Sunday breakfast!

  • Spinach

It is for sure that you have green vegetables in your diet but dark green vegetables like spinach are different from others. Firstly spinach is rich in vitamin A and C, iron and beta carotene.  

  • Nuts and Seeds

Nuts and seeds are joined more and more in our daily diet rather than as a snack. Walnut and almonds are both rich in beneficial vitamins; they are also delicious and support the immune system. Moreover it is easy to access and include on your breakfast, lunch salad or a healthy sweets.

Seeds like sunflower seed or chia seed have high levels of vitamin E and zinc. And Flaxseed can be the queen of omega3 fatty acid that you can not get it from salmon. So try to have salads with more nuts and seeds and see the hair growth and density through a healthy diet.

In short, clean eating can enrich the volume of your hair as well as cheer up your mood so that you keep your hair well and maintained even after the hair transplant operation.


The food selection is based on the vitamins that feed the hair follicles well. If you are lacking these foods and any allergic reaction you can take supplements. Also the amount of food is not as sufficient as the supplementary vitamins. There are biotin, zinc, vitamin B combinations that focus on hair, skin and nail care that have powerful effects on improvement. And if you are vegetarian or vegan that you don’t eat meat, you can fulfill the lack of protein from supplementary vitamins

Use The Right Shampoo And Conditioner: (Hair Types)

Hair products have their own industry and every hair type needs its own care. Be mindful to identify the hair type and use the necessary shampoo and conditioner. Because the low price and the smell of the product would not help to protect your hair. And always avoid applying  the conditioner to the roots of the hair. Periodical care by the hair salon is a way to maintain the hair growth. Even though we think that it is just a shampoo, it is important for the hair health, dryness and enriching the hair strands. If you have hair transplant operations, it is better to consult your doctor to use the appropriate shampoo and conditioners or any supportive products to maintain the hair health.
