Can you dye your hair after a restoration procedure?
The industry’s latest rapid recovery procedure
If you already colour your hair and you want to keep the shade consistent, or if you’re planning to color it after, you’ll need to talk to your surgeon to learn when the time is right.
The industry’s latest rapid recovery procedures allow for the micro-incisions to close within just a few days. Most transplant sites are considered to be healed within 5-7 days. In the early stage post-procedure, you’ll be advised against washing, scrubbing or applying anything to the scalp. Until you’ve completely healed, no harsh chemicals or anything that could cause infection should be used. When it comes to applying hair dye, you’ll likely need to wait 10-14 days.
Once your grafts heal, you may find most implanted hairs fall out to make way for new hairs in transplanted follicles. You’ll see fine, new strands growing in a few months later. You can expect most thickness and growth to come in by roughly 9 months and final results at one year. Once your hair is growing naturally, it will be resilient and you can cut, style, dye it, or do anything you wish.
