Hair transplants have grown increasingly popular in recent years. The International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) showed that 397,048 procedures were performed in The US alone in 2014.
The procedure can cost up to £9000 in The UK and can require 14 days down-time, in which you're advised to avoid public transport and working-out, and so for this relatively expensive procedure, you're going to want to take as much care as possible whilst you recover and your hair steadily grows back.
How can you maintain your hair transplant?
