Hair transplant scar may turn out to be a nightmare just like baldness or premature fall of hair. The hair transplant scar results after a surgery that involves Hair Transplant. The scar that is left after the surgery gets over is known as the Hair Transplant Scar.
What does hair transplant mean?
Hair transplant is a form of surgery in which the follicles of hair are taken from one part of the head and are grafted in another part of the head that has become bald. The whole process is done to provide a surgical cure of the problem of baldness.
The hair transplant surgery involves accurate craftsmanship by the surgeons. A normal hair transplant surgery can be done in either of the two ways. One method is known as Strip harvesting and the other method is known as Follicular Unit Extraction. In case of Strip harvesting, a small portion of the scalp is stripped off, cut into small pieces and grafted in that part of the head where the hair has become really thin. On the other hand, in Follicular Unit Extraction, individual strands of hair are uprooted and again forcefully inserted into that portion of the head which is experiencing baldness.
Taking care of your hair transplant scar
Once the transplantation of the hair has taken place, chances are high that the freshly operated area may accumulate dirt. This accumulation of dirt may lead to the loss of the newly transplanted hair. In this case, the surgeons advice that the operated patient shampoo his or her hair, taking utmost care of the operated part.

They may even suffer from a depressed mood in a few cases. For them, the only solution lay in treating the hair transplant scar.
