    You're welcome...that's why I think a loosely fitted headband or scarf works the best for women...;)

    After my last procedure in January of 2016 with Dr. Sanusi Umar, I was advised to stay out of the sun 4-6 months. As an extra precaution, I was also advised to apply spray sun tan lotion whenever you may be walking outside, or exposing yourself to the elements.

    As long as the lotion had adequate sun block protection which is the key.

    Did my HT in Turkey, my doctor said I should ware a hat for 2 weeks...
    32 days post op I was out without a hat for about 20 minutes, it was hard sun and I had a strange feeling in my scalp, I felt something was not right. I felt like I did a demage to my hair.
    At that time my transplanted hair did not start to fall.
    A week has passed and the hair still doesn't fall, although in that week I started to feel the transplanted area in a way I did not feel before.
    I would be happy to hear your opinion about it. Did I demage the grafts? If the hair remains does it mean a good sign?
    Will PRP treatment help?

    Thanks,
    Josh

    Josh,
    I doubt 20 minutes of exposure did much damage. But the real thing you need to pay attention too is whether or not you think you got a sunburn on your scalp. I don't think the scalp "feeling funny" is enough. My understanding of sun damage to HT, is that you would have to feel burning and blistering on your scalp for the new follicles to be damaged.

    I agree...if there was any significant sunburn, your scalp would turn red, it would hurt to the touch, etc.
