Can I Perm My Hair after Hair Transplant Surgery?

6/22/2015 9:46:10 PM


I've had a hair transplant and was wondering if it is safe to perm my hair. Would it cause any damage to the hair follicles or cause permanent hair loss?


Transplanted hair is no more at risk of chemical damage than any other hair but, if this a recent hair transplant, I'd wait till a couple of months post-op to be safe before applying any chemicals.

There is always a risk of damaging the hair and scalp when using chemicals but that risk is low if it's performed by a professional or someone with experience.
