    Hi,

    I still dont get it how to protect against sun after hair transplant. Im now 6 weeks post FUE OP and went out always with a cap. I thought a cap is enough protection against sun but I read you need to avoid sun at all, even if you have a hat/cap. I went out to the lake but with a hat and getting worried I fucked up smth.

    Its kinda hard to avoid sun in summer. So whar should I do? sunscreen + cap? Or just a cap? or nothing at all? Internet gives me 50 different answers...

    Why don't you just carry a umbrella(dark) + a cap. It'll be similar to if you were indoors.

    No one will notice. It's fairly normal to use umbrellas on a sunny day to avoid the sun nowadays.

    Any hat or cap will work fine that's what I used because it also looked a bit ugly

    Kidding aside. I've done some research regarding sun protection. My sister has lupus and is suppose to avoid the sun. Your cap should be enough to block out the sun if that's the worry. As long as it's cotton(preferably a dark color) and not the ones with mesh. I think the only concern is the sweat build up which can cause irritation.

    Very appreciate it. Its confusing how many different answers you get. Some say, you are fine going out into the sun after 1 week post OP, some say stay at home for 5 years....

    Yeah I've read different opinions also. 5 years is crazy. Of course you want to avoid sun as much as you can but if you must, a cap should be enough.
