Can I apply oil to my hair after a hair transplant?

After hair transplant, one should follow the post-operative instructions given. We generally provide the shampoo to be used for cleaning and washing the scalp and also the antiseptic lotion/ointment for the donor area. This ensures the cleaning of the area and softening of the scabs which ultimately promotes healing. One should use only these on the area advised. One can use coconut or almond oil in the donor area from 2 weeks onwards. If there is itching/ dryness in the healing area, the oil application may also give some relief in it. On the recipient area one can start applying oil after 10-12 weeks.
