Can you Transplant Hair with Gray Hair?

There is a misconception that the strength of gray hair is less than that of colored hair. Gray hair is genetically as strong as a normal hair and the follicles can be removed in the same way from the donor area for transplanting. When gray hair comes with other attributes, such as curling or waving, the results obtained with gray hair and hair transplant can be further improved.

 

Gray hair features

Most people experience gray hair as age progresses when melanin production slows or stops, and hair loses color to turn white or gray.

Gray hair is caused by discoloration of the hair as we age. This is because, during the anagen phase of hair growth, melanocytes (melanin makers) stop producing the pigment, and therefore hair grows colorless.

 

Transplant hair with gray hair?

It is very important to highlight that gray hair is not a problem when performing a hair graft. Follicles can be used in the same way as colored hair and in the same amount.

Although the hair in the donor area is pigment-free, it retains its DHT-resistant properties, making it ideal for a hair transplant.

 

Can implanted hair be colored?

The implanted hair has the same characteristics as the rest of the hair. The behavior of the patient with his new hair is exactly the same as if he had not had a hair transplant. For example, many of the patients already dyed their hair before they underwent the transplant, and there is no reason why they cannot continue to do so. If the right products are used, the dye does not have to be harmful to the implanted hair, the follicles will not lose their strength nor will they "die" from applying a dye.

Four months after the transplant has passed, and once the scalp has healed, the new hair can be dyed. It is convenient to get rid of fear-based on prejudice: you can comb and color your hair after a graft without any problem.

 

Perhaps an appropriate recommendation is that if you normally dye your hair at home, you may want to consider doing it at the salon the first time and putting yourself in expert hands. An expert colorist can recommend the product that best suits your hair.
