Hair Transplant in Winter

Many people think that hair transplantation in the winter will not be appropriate because of the concern that cold weather may damage hair follicles. However, cold weather does not have such a negative effect on hair transplantation and hair follicles.

Although a particular season is not the 'best season' for hair transplantation, having hair transplantation in the winter season is recommended to patients.

When is the best time for hair transplant?

In some months and mid-seasons, hair loss can occur according to the person. Hair loss may increase or decrease. Each person should observe this process according to their hair structure and tell their doctor. For example, while some people experience more hair loss in hot seasons, others experience more in the winter. In general, the times when hair loss is intense are mid seasons. Therefore, it may not be the best time to have a hair transplant in the spring.

If a patient decides to have a hair transplant in the winter, these people must protect themselves from the cold for at least 10-days. If a patient chooses to have an operation in the summer, they should avoid swimming and sun exposure for 10-days.

Is it appropriate to have a hair transplant in the winter season?

Having hair transplantation in the winter season provides patients with more successful results compared to other seasons. It is normal to have slight crusting and redness on the skin after hair transplantation. These crusting and redness should not be exposed to sunlight while they are in the healing process. For this reason, the summer season is recommended more carefully for people who want to have an operation.


In addition, the transplanted hair starts to grow within three months. Therefore, it is necessary to protect the grafts that are transplanted for three months and to pay attention no matter what season it is.

Does Cold Weather Affect Hair Transplantation?

The only point that patients should pay attention to is to wear comfortable accessories and not tighten the head area while using products such as hats or berets when they are in cold weather conditions.

If all these are taken into consideration, cold weather does not have a negative effect on hair transplantation. It does not cause hair loss or damage to the grafts in any way.

Many patients think that transplanting in the winter will not be beneficial because there is a false belief that hair loss increases in cold months. Every person loses at least 100 strands of hair during the day, but this is normal.

Advantages of Hair Transplantation in Winter Season

Protecting the hair transplant area during the first three months is very important. After the procedure, the transplanted area should be kept dry. This area should not be damp and should not expose to sunlight. Experts do not recommend exercise that may cause sweating in the head area, especially in the early period after hair transplantation. Because sweating or water touching this area damages the transplanted hair follicles. It is more advantageous to have hair transplantation in the winter season because of these reasons.

During the winter, it is much easier to keep your scalp clean. Because we generally spend time in the home environment during the winter months. Since activities such as being outside, sunbathing, or swimming in the sea, should not be performed frequently during this period, the scalp is minimally affected.

Since the weather is not hot, the healing process takes place faster in the winter months. Less impact on your daily life and more time to rest means you'll get through the healing process more successfully.

Disadvantages of Hair Transplantation in Winter

There are disadvantages as well as advantages to having a hair transplant in the winter season. The biggest disadvantage of having a hair transplant in winter is that this season is quite cold. You must protect your head from bad weather conditions. For example, it is recommended not to go out on a rainy day and rest at home.

Cold weather conditions in winter can cause the scalp to lose moisture. For this reason, it is important to keep the hair transplant area moist, especially in winter. It is possible to consume plenty of water, have a balanced and regular diet, and maintain the moisture balance of the scalp with the right hair care products.

As a result, the points to be considered after hair transplantation may differ according to seasonal changes. It will be useful to know what to do according to the season in which you have hair transplantation.
