    Default Does wearing bangs count as protection?

    Hello all,

    I'm a female 5 days post FUE for hairline restoration. Been reading all these posts about protecting the grafts post transplant and I'm wondering about wearing bangs, does that count as protection from the sun? I'm currently in Romania for another month or so, very hot sunny weather every day, curious if I can take 10-20 minute walks during the day with my bangs down, grafts covered by my own hair. Thanks in advance!

    No, your bangs will not serve to protect your grafts from the sun's harmful rays. In fact the darker hair colors actually reflect more light off the scalp.

    So best to use something to cover those precious grafts like a loose headband or scarf.

    Thanks gillenator! It's a tricky situation to manage, between not wearing hats out of fear they would be touching the scalp, and not going out out of fear of sun exposure, ugh..

    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.
