A benefit of this surgery is it also increases your vitality, as it causes your hair follicles to grow naturally.

There are lots of questions that people have about getting a hair transplant in the summer. Here are some answers to help put your mind at ease.

Does sweat effect the results? – Sweating is not a concern for the results of the hair transplant, as long as you follow post-op care, and keep the scalp clean for the first two weeks.

Does sunburn affect the results? – Preventing sunburn is advisable, and if you are spending time outside it is important to protect your scalp. Be sure to clean your transplant area after activities to prevent sweat and dirt build-up.

There are certain foods that help with your hair growth, and with the summer full of fresh fruits and vegetables, this will provide you with plenty of vitamins and minerals that are necessary for strong hair growth.  Here are some examples of the foods.

  • Watermelon contains citrulline, a phytonutrient which increases the level of arginine in the body. As an amino acid, arginine enhances blood circulation to the scalp, promoting hair growth.
  • Berries contain vitamin C providing the body with antioxidants. It is also responsible for collagen production which has the potential to make hair stronger.
  • Apricots contain linoleic and oleic acids along with vitamins A and E, which hydrate and condition hair. These vitamins also help with conditions such as dry scalp and dandruff.
