Hair Transplant For Grey Hair A Hair Transplantation Surgery Guide

In grey hair transplantation, hair follicles are transplanted from the donor area to the balding area, similar to the classic hair transplant; the only difference is the patient’s hair is grey. The hair begins to turn grey in many people when they are in their mid-30s to late 30s. Some studies say that nearly half of the people will develop 50% of grey hair by 50 years.

There is a common misconception that grey hair follicles are ineffective compared to pigmented hair follicles, but it’s not true. Pigmented hair and white hair do not differ significantly in transplantation except for the colour.

Can grey hair be transplanted?

People with grey hair interested in getting a transplant, ask this question frequently. In short, grey hair is suitable for hair transplants. A hair transplant might also be ideal for patients whose hair is whitening. Furthermore, grey hair tends to be thicker and more textured than pigmented hair. In other words, grey hair patients generally report achieving satisfying hair transplant results. The procedure also proves to be a safe and effective method for elder patients having grey hair.

Will I have the same hair colour after hair transplantation?

Yes, as long as the procedure is planned and executed according to your specific needs. For example, your transplanted hair can be of a different shade from the recipient area if you have white hair in particular areas. However, you must choose a skilled and experienced hair transplant surgeon to avoid mismatching hair colours.  

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is an advanced technique where grafts are randomly selected and picked from the back of your head to transplant.

An old procedure called FUT hair transplant, also known as the strip method, takes a strip of hair from the donor location and transplants it to the recipient area. In this way, surgeons have the choice to pick the right hair strand. So the newly transplanted hair will blend in. Sometimes it may result in unsuitable hair transplant outcomes.

Colour mismatching is a common problem when transplanting hair. If graft distribution is ensured precisely, the results will be natural. Therefore, even if your hair has different shades, it looks good than before. If the patient wishes to change the colour of his transplanted hair, he may dye it. But only after 4 to 6 months following the hair transplant surgery. The patient’s scalp must heal before dying your hair fully. 

The few benefits of grey hair transplantation: 

Grey hair gives a denser and fuller look than people with black hair on the scalp.

Grey hair stands out from other types due to the tough texture and lack of oil holding capacity that binds them together. This enables improved style and waviness.

In other words, the number of grafts required to create a full appearance is comparatively less in someone with more contrast between their skin and hair colour.

It is possible to dye grey hair with any colour without bleaching it. However, bleaching can result in hair damage. 

Finally, grey-haired individuals tend to be more realistic in their expectations.

It is very important to plan carefully when considering white hair transplants. You can find white hair in the nape area and around the ears. Here are some factors to consider for a successful hair transplant:

The colour of hair follicles taken for transplantation from the donor area, the hair follicle’s colour in the recipient area and matching the two to achieve a perfect hair colour.
