1. Blur the bald areas with powders hair fibers? Say goodbye to them!

Men who suffer from thinning hair, manage to create a richer hair look by using different powders. These powders, of course, do not prevent thinning or baldness, but provide an aesthetic-point solution (otherwise, you would not have chosen to transplant hair). Although the powders blur the thinning areas, it is forbidden to use them after hair transplants. The good news: soon, you won't need them anymore...

2. Have you gotten used to masking your baldness with hats? Say goodbye to them too

Alongside the men who have become accustomed to baldness, there are those who are not ready to accept it. the solution? It was camouflaged with hats that became part of their hallmark. After the hair transplant is performed, it is forbidden to cover the scalp. why? Because there is a fear that the hat/bandana will damage the implanted follicles. In order to avoid any such complication, it is recommended to avoid wearing hats for at least a week. 

3. Replace your morning coffee with tea or a natural drink

Although we don't know each other personally (yet), we're guessing that you too like to start your morning with a super-specific drink: coffee. Even if you define yourself as "addicted to coffee" and even if your eyes won't open without it, you will have to say goodbye to it for a short period of time. After the hair transplants, there is an unequivocal recommendation to avoid coffee consumption, when the reason is the blood pressure that may increase. Should you avoid coffee in exchange for hair on your head? We can imagine what your answer is…

4. Lifting heavy weights? out of bounds!

Are you engaged in the field of transportation or logistics, are you planning to move during the recovery period or are you training in weight training at the gym? It is important to know: you must return to full activity gradually, when it is necessary to completely avoid any physical effort in the first week of recovery. In the first two weeks after hair transplants, you should avoid lifting heavy weights - from shopping bags to weights in the gym. Full physical activity - free of restrictions and small lines, will be possible only one month after the hair transplant. 

5. Smoking is harmful to your health, and also to your recovery process...

For the smokers in the group, this is probably the most challenging and difficult news: the recovery period of hair transplants cannot be surrounded by cigarette smoke. It goes without saying that smoking is harmful to health, as well as to the normal recovery process. The corona crisis has taught many that crises also contain opportunities. Who knows, maybe avoiding smoking will make you give up cigarettes...
