Hi. Can I get a mid-taper fade after having a hair transplant and how long after?

It's best to wait about 3-4 weeks after your hair transplant before going for a mid-taper fade. This gives your new hair time to settle and heal properly.

Thanks for the advice! Also, are there any specific hair products I should avoid or prefer during this healing period?

I recommend avoiding any harsh chemical products, including hair gels, sprays, and other styling products, for at least the first month. It's also advisable to use a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo to avoid irritating the scalp. Once your scalp has healed, you can gradually reintroduce your regular products but always pay attention to how your skin and new hair react.

That makes sense, thanks. Is it okay to wear a hat or beanie to cover my head after the transplant?

You can wear a loose-fitting hat or beanie to protect your scalp from the sun or cold. However, ensure that it's not too tight to avoid putting pressure on the new grafts. Wait at least a week before wearing any headgear to ensure the grafts are not disturbed during their critical healing phase.
