The real challenge during hair transplant
Hair transplants happen over a long period of time and a number of treatments are usually required to get to the final satisfactory result. The real challenge though is to find a way to deal with the lack of hair during the treatment period, and the solution could be to just apply hair spray with hair thickening agents if you need a slight cover up during these initial stages. Alopecia areata victims would also benefit greatly by using hair thickening sprays.
What are hair thickening agents?
But it does help to know more about what hair thickening agents are.
They are used during your hair transplant to maintain a definitive quantity of hair. A hair thickening agent is usually a fine powder mixed with a sticky matter to make the powder cling to your existing hair or your new transplants. You can even style your hair as normal after you have applied it although it washes out the next time you wash your hair.
Problem with hair thickening agents after hair transplant
These thickening agents can also be used after hair transplant when there is none or not much hair at all on the area that it is being applied to. Although to be at its most efficient the hair thickening agent should really be sprayed onto the hair and not directly on the scalp. This is because the scalp is obviously greasier than hair and smoother and therefore the powder is likely to skate off or begin to run.
Another problem with thickening agents is that they do not work very well on wider bald areas. This is for a very simple reason, which is basically that there is probably not enough hair for the thickening agent to stick on to and give its maximum effect.
Coverage of hair after hair transplant
However, if you apply hair thickening agents with a bit of care the changes in volume and coverage to your scalp can be quite amazing, especially if applied to the crown or smaller, thinning areas after hair transplant. It is also very easy to find a colour that suits your real hair colour, as hair thickening agent sprays are available in a large range of hair colours, which are very natural looking.
The hair thickening solution
The hair thickening solution can indeed be very efficient as a hair thickening product after hair transplant and can solve the appearance of thinning hair and baldness extremely well. Remember though it is only useful as a volatile solution for the very reason that it will wash out every time you have a shower. Plus it is generally not very useful in humid conditions, so be realistic in your expectations of the results you expect in these kind of situations.
All in all a hair thickening agent is an outstanding solution for when temporary, short term solutions are needed for baldness. The duration between the first and last hair transplant treatment is exactly the time when an agent like this is needed.
After the hair transplant, because of the hair thickening agent’s great ability to wrap up small patches, if this is the type of hair loss you are experiencing, then you can experiment with hair thickening agents while you are waiting for a more non-volatile solution to be found and used.
