A number of people experience a change in the Hair texture after a hair transplant procedure, if you are one of these people then there is no need to panic or think it was not worth the wait. Just like a farmer who plants red apple seeds, his expected results after harvesting must be red apples.
Considering this, a new full head of hair or advanced hairline will not spring up instantly. In fact, your scalp and hair grafts will likely go through some weird phases, although these phases are a perfectly normal part of the process, they can be scary and disturbing at times. Just know we understand and are always here for you.
How is hair transplanted?
Let’s take a minute and look at how the hair is transplanted, In FUE individual follicular units are obtained and harvested directly from the donor area so after a hair transplant, depending on the location from where the donor hair was harvested will determine the texture and colour of the hair. For instance, if you have blonde curly hair in the donor area, after it is transplanted to the recipient site, it will maintain the same colour and texture.
After a few weeks, the transplanted hair will fall out leaving the transplanted hair follicle intact, paving way for the new hair to generally begin to grow again. However, the texture of the hair may further change after hair transplantation due to unavoidable trauma that takes place as follicles are removed from the scalp and placed into recipient sites.
This usually self-corrects over a period of 1-2 years during which time the transplanted hair gradually regains its original luster and texture. The transplanted hair is considered to be strong and resistant to the hormonal cause of hair loss which hair lives and grows indefinitely.
