Right after a hair transplant, there are a lot of things that you have to do to make sure that the healing process is going perfectly. One of them is to use the shampoo that your doctor has prescribed. That should be used for the first 2 weeks but that does not mean your hair is safe. That is why here at BeautiClassy, I have reviewed and tested 10 of the best shampoo after hair transplant after consulting with people who have gone through with a hair transplant.

1. Best Overall – Maple Holistics Biotin and Rosemary Shampoo

  • Product Type: Shampoo
  • Hair Type: Dry scalp

Nourishing essential oils: restores dry scalp back to normal

Radiant hair: adds a shine back to your hair

How to use

Wet your hair in lukewarm water and then take an appropriate amount of shampoo and lather it in your hands before applying it to wet hair, massaging it into the scalps for about a minute and leaving it on for a couple more. Rinse out with cold water and pat dry your hair with a clean towel afterward.

Expert Verdict

Right after a hair transplant, you will be facing a lot of problems. From itchiness, scabbing, and overall healing of the scalp. That is why the Maple Holistics Biotin Shampoo works wonders in solving all those problems and much more! The biotin and rosemary oil used in the shampoo returns the growth of new hair on your scalp while also being mild to the scalp. The soothing effect of this shampoo is also wondrous and your itchiness will soon go away. The main thing that your hair needs after a hair transplant is to thicken the hair back to a suitable amount. This is done with the extra strength biotin infused in the product where you will start noticing newer and thicker hair within a couple of months of using it! And let’s not forget the drying scalp either! This product will definitely help to restore the balance of your scalp back to normal and better than ever. The only problem you might face while using this product is that it can leave the hair dry when used too often. So limit your use to get the best out of this product! That is why I considered this to be the best overall shampoo after a hair transplant as it will do all the good things (strengthening, regrowth, itch relief, etc.) when used in appropriate amounts. So use it wisely and see how well your hair grows within a few months of using it!

Pros and Cons

2. Best for Hair Resilience Against Damage and Breakage – Nioxin System Kit 2, Cleanse, Condition, and Treat the Scalp

Specification

  • Product Type: Shampoo, conditioner, and scalp treatment
  • Hair Type: Thinning hair
  • Active Ingredients: Salicylic acid
  • Liquid Volume: 10 fl oz. (300 ml) shampoo, 10 fl oz. (300 ml) conditioner, 3.38 fl oz. (100 ml) scalp treatment serum

Description

Features

All round kit: for when you need extra nourishment in your hair

Resilience: makes your hair stronger and less likely to break

Dandruff care: get rid of any dandruff on your hair with the help of salicylic acid

How to use

As there are three different products in this kit, let’s go over how you will use them in serial.

For the shampoo, you will wet your hair in lukewarm water and lather the shampoo in your hands and gently apply it to your hair. Don’t rub your hair, instead focus on massaging the scalp. Leave it on for a minute and then wash it off with cold water.

For the conditioner, take a dime size amount and start applying from the ends of your hair all the way to your roots. Leave it on for 5 to 6 minutes on your hair so that it penetrates your hair follicles and then wash it off with cold water.

For the scalp treatment serum, take a drop or two on your hand and then warm it up by rubbing it. Then apply from the ends of the hair, stopping in the middle of the hair strands. Air dry your hair and observe your hair after a few hours. If it is greasy then consider not using the serum on your hair.

Expert Verdict

After a hair transplant, your hair will be left quite brittle and weak. That is where the Nioxin System Kit 2, Cleanse, Condition, and Treat the Scalp comes to the rescue to leave your hair feeling stronger than ever before! Not only will your hair be stronger, but it will also work in the hair follicles to make it stronger from the inside. This will allow your hair to break less and return its shine! The salicylic acid not only helps to rehydrate your hair, but it works wonders on scalp scabs and dandruff, effectively getting rid of them without any hassle! However, it can’t do everything. Where it strengthens your hair, it won’t be able to help with new hair growth. So you will have stronger hair but only on the existing hair.

Pros and Cons

ProsCons
Stronger and shinier hairDoes not help with hair growth
More resistant to breakage
Gets rid of scabs and dandruff from the scalp

3. Best for Boosting Hair Growth – Watermans Hair Growth Shampoo & Conditioner

For the conditioner, take a dime size amount and start applying from the ends of your hair all the way to your roots. Leave it on for 5 to 6 minutes on your hair so that it penetrates your hair follicles and then wash it off with cold water.

Expert Verdict

Even after getting a hair transplant, what you need is to promote new hair growth. The Watermans Hair Growth Shampoo & Conditioner does exactly that by returning your scalp with all the nourishment needed for hair growth with the help of caffeine and biotin. It’s chock-full of natural ingredients that help to soothe your scalp and get clear your scalp in the process. That is also where the DHT (dihydrotestosterone) blockers come in to prevent hair loss from occurring. However, do be careful because this shampoo and conditioner are on the stronger side. If you already had sensitive skin and scalp, then you might start having inflammation. But if you can use it, it gives your hair a soft bounce and returns the shine back to it!

Pros and Cons

ProsCons

Expert Verdict

The other problem with a hair transplant is that your hair is left to be thinner than usual. That is where you need a shampoo that is able to thicken and volumize it back to your desired hair. With the help of PURA D’OR Anti-Thinning Biotin Shampoo and Conditioner, you can expect your hair to return back to its fullness once again!

How to use

This is a whole set of products so let’s go at how to use each of the products one by one.

For the shampoo, squeeze out an ample amount of the product onto your hand and spread it all across your hair in a nice and even spread, massaging into your scalp as you do. Leave it in for a couple of minutes before you wash it out with cold water.

For the conditioner, you apply by taking an appropriate amount and applying it to the ends of your hair and spreading it to the roots. Leave it there for about 5 to 6 minutes. Afterward, wash out your hair one final time with cold water.

For the leave-in foamer, apply it to your hair after pat drying it. Take an egg-sized amount on your palm and spread it throughout the hair while concentrating on the roots. For the oil, apply a drop or two directly to the scalp and massage it gently.

For the oil, you can use the dropper to directly apply to your scalp and massage it in. You should only use about 1 to 2 drops at most.

Expert Verdict

When it comes to a hair solution after a hair transplant, there is little to beat the Shapiro MD Women’s Regrowth Kit Plus! It works by balancing the hormones in your hair by reducing the amount of DHT and rehydrating your dry hair through green tea and caffeine extracts. It helps to promote new hair growth so you get a bigger density of hair growth in parts where you had a loss of hair. But be prepared to be overwhelmed by this product because you will need at least 4 months of usage to gain the benefits you are looking for! There are a lot of restrictions that come with the products too so make sure you read up on those before you buy the product.

Pros and Cons

There is a reason why dermatologists recommend the Revivogen MD Bio-Cleansing Shampoo. It helps to alleviate the problems with hair transplant by soothing the scalp, returning volume to hair, and reversing the problems with hair loss! Where it lacks is helping to grow new hair, something that you sorely need after a hair transplant.

A gentle shampoo is always nice to have for your hair. This is especially the case for hair transplant where your scalp will be super irritated and your hair a complete mess. The Alra Mild Conditioning Shampoo eliminates the need to apply a conditioner to your hair where instead it helps the hair by revitalizing the scalp with renewed blood circulation! Just the fact people who undergo chemotherapy will say it all about how good this product is post-treatment, eliminating dry hair and keeping it hydrated. While this is good for the scalp, it does little for actual hair growth. But it is gentle enough to be used on flaky hair and damaged scalp to return it back to its old self!

Pros and Cons

ProsCons
Increased healing of scalpNot for hair regrowth
Hydrating hair
Gentle on the scalp

When Can I Use Normal Shampoo After Hair Transplant?

When can I use normal shampoo after hair transplant

Right after you get a hair transplant, your scalp remains very sensitive. To counteract this situation, your doctor will prescribe you a special shampoo to help heal the wound on your scalp. You will notice your scalp starting to scab and be very itchy, which is what the shampoo is there for.

Now this special shampoo is supposed to be used between the 3rd to the 14th day after getting the transplant. So is it safe to use a normal shampoo after that? Yes, but there is a bit of complication. You will need to use a soothing shampoo to help with the healing process as you will still face inflammation and itching on your scalp even after the special shampoo is finished. A soothing shampoo will help to get rid of the itchiness of the transplant and calm the scalp of any inflammation.

For the shampooing process, you will need to do it as gently as possible. Do not rub in the normal shampoo on your scalp, instead lather the hair with your palm without applying any pressure on the scalp. You will have to use cold water as warm or hot water will cause irritation and cause the wound on your scalp to worsen, hindering the healing process. For the drying process, you can use a clean cotton towel but it would be best to gently pat dry your hair with a paper towel instead. That way you won’t be rubbing your scalp or causing unwanted friction.

Can I Use Anti-Dandruff Shampoo After Hair Transplant?

can-i-use-anti-dandruff-shampoo-after-hair-transplant
Can I use anti dandruff shampoo after hair transplant

The problem with anti-dandruff shampoos is that they use surfactants like sodium laureth sulfate to help clear out dandruff. However, due to it being a harsh ingredient, it can cause your scalp to start burning where you had the hair transplant. That is why anti-dandruff shampoos are not supposed to be used until at least 3 to 4 weeks after the hair transplant. This will allow the scalp to fully heal which is when you can use a normal anti-dandruff shampoo.

But you will still have dandruff on your scalp because your scalp will be very dry. This will cause the skin on your scalp to start flaking which will be very problematic. This is why the special shampoo that your doctor prescribed has anti-dandruff properties to allow the scalp to properly moisturize. That way the flaking skin will stop and you will be dandruff-free!

FAQs

1. Can I use regular shampoo after a hair transplant?

You may not use regular shampoo after a hair transplant. You need a special shampoo recommended by your doctor that you have to use for 14 days. After that, you can start using your regular shampoo.

2. Can shampoo damage hair transplants?

If the shampoo contains harsh chemicals and surfactants, it could lead to damaged hair after a hair transplant.

3. What is the best hair care after hair transplant?

You should use the shampoo that was prescribed to you to get rid of the scabs and air dry your hair for the best hair care possible. You can use natural soothing oils to help with any inflammation.

4. What hair products to avoid after a hair transplant?

Mousse, gel, hairspray, wax, and other styling products should be strictly avoided for up to 3 to 4 weeks after getting a hair transplant as these could interfere with the healing process.

5. Which shampoo is very mild?

Shampoos with natural ingredients and oils are considered to be mild and non-irritating for the scalp.

Final Thoughts

There you have it! The 10 of best shampoos after hair transplant that you can get on the market. It was definitely interesting trying to figure out which were the ones you could use after a hair transplant because not all of them were specifically made for it. But I saw that these shampoos really helped with dealing with the problems of post-transplant. The Maple Holistics and HairMD products were the best and the Maple Holistics edged out because of its affordability and effectiveness. I hope that you find the shampoo you are looking for from this list and as always, stay classy!
