Day 9: Vitamins & Keratene

When you’ve invested so heavily in a hair transplant, you soon wonder whether there’s any value in helping hair growth along in the form of dietary supplements. I asked this question during my consultation, and was recommended Vitamin B Complex, Biotin and MSM. I raided my nearest Holland & Barrett and found the following. ImageThe Biotin is a 2000% RDA formula, and the Vitamin B Complex is high dose too. I also added ‘Perfectil’ which contains zinc and selenium, as well as other nutrients to maintain healthy skin, hair and nails. I’m not sure if any of this will make any difference, but I figure it’s worth a shot.

I’d also run out of aloe vera, so was happy to see it is widely available in pure form. Mine also contains a little Tea Tree oil, which acts as a natural antiseptic. Not really necessary at this stage but can’t harm. I was also given Keratene Serum and Keratene Shampoo from my clinic, which have been developed specifically for FUE/FUT patients. The serum hydrates the recipient and donor area to aid healing, and the shampoo is a biological hypoallergenic¬†formula, for dermatological care of the scalp.Image

  1. Are you taking anything now like finasteride tablets/minoxidil?
    I worry that if I do go for a transplant that the hair behind the transplanted hair may go – that would be a weird look. Was this a concern of yours too? And if so, how do you mitigate it?
