Hair Transplant in New York: Will My Hair Color Match?

Various shades and tone of hair on your head

Hair Transplant in New York

Maybe you haven’t given much thought to the various shades and tone of hair on your head. For some people, the color variance between strands is notable, and the hair at the frontal hairline or temples may be slightly different from the crown or back of the head.

When you plan a hair transplant in New York, one of the factors a talented surgeon will consider is color matching. Along with density and direction of hair growth that looks natural, the shade matters too.

New York hair transplant: what about grey hair?

People who have starkly different tones of hair at the front or sides may experience a youthful darkening as donor hair is taken from the back of the head and brought to the front. The surgeon can carefully disperse and blend in the new hair, so there are no unusual hard edges or lines.

Hair transplants in New York are often done with the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method. It allows hair grafts to be extracted individually in a randomized pattern so the grafts will not necessarily be uniform in color. Compared with FUT, which is also known as the ‘strip method,’ greater variance can be achieved. It’s not common to have an issue with hair color mis-matching on the head. The color of natural beards and moustaches can be trickier to blend with because it tends to be significantly different shades.

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.
