Dyeing Your Transplanted Hair

Both men and women can suffer from hair loss. It’s a hereditary condition that becomes more prevalent as we age. Certain medical problems can also be the culprit. Losing your hair can make you look older than you are and have negative effects on your self-esteem.  If you’re struggling with this dilemma, you may want to consider getting a hair transplant in Atlanta.

A common question that we get from a lot of our transplant patients is whether or not they can dye their new hair. The short answer is yes.  But there are some precautions to take and some planning ahead that can be done.

Dyeing Your Hair Before Your Transplant

If you want to color your hair prior to your transplant you can.  However, it should be done a few before your scheduled procedure so that the dye from your scalp has time to diminish. This way our doctor will be able to see and the scalp won’t be stained with color.

Dyeing Your Hair After Your Transplant

Depending on the type of procedure you have, you may have tiny incisions as part of the transplant.  Your hair transplant can take up to 14 days to heal and you should see growth within 3 months.  The new hair follicles are more sensitive than your natural hair.  So, to begin with, it’s important to avoid the harsh chemicals that are found in most hair dye products. Damage may occur to the transplanted hair so try to go as long as you can without coloring it. A minimum of four to six weeks is ideal.

If you’re suffering from hair loss, then you should give us a call. You deserve to look and feel your best!
