Question: I underwent a hair transplant and I am taking Propecia. Can I use minoxidil, and if I can, what concentration? My hair is growing well but not thick, and there is always oil and sweat secretion.
Answer: You can start applying minoxidil as long the wound has healed. This can take two weeks. Treatment recommendations will depend on your individual case, but minoxidil and Propecia can be used as a combination as part of a hair loss treatment plan. Minoxidil is useful for hair transplant patients because it can help prevent the hair around the transplant falling out and can regrow thinning areas. Regarding oil and sweat secretion, daily shampooing is the best antidote. It also helps to reduce the intake of oily or greasy and spicy foods.
