If you are thinking of having a hair transplant, but if your hair is too white, one of the most curious issues is probably whether to transplant the greying hair. Hair transplants can be done quickly on white hair.

Hair transplant for white hair is the same as for black, blond and brown hair. You will get natural results after a hair transplant on white hair. You can achieve healthy hair with FUE or micro hair transplant techniques. Within the scope of these techniques, the surgeon opens different types of hair channels for white hair. Thus, your hair reaches a natural appearance, hair strands that grow in the right direction, growth areas fully compatible with the donors, and an aesthetic front hairline.

How is a Hair Transplant Performed On White Hair?

It would help if you were very careful during the planning stage before the hair transplant. Your white hair is more common, especially on the nape and above the ears. You need to pay attention to these when planning. When the surgeon takes the follicles from your donor area, the colour of your hair follicles should be compatible with the colour of the hair follicles in the area to be transplanted and the roots to be collected. 

Our surgeons will give you a natural look by paying close attention to these issues. An average hair transplant procedure takes 4 to 8 hours. However, this period may be more extended when performing a hair transplant for white hair. Since the surgeon will separate your hair follicles according to their colour, the operation time is also longer.

If the Nape Hair is White and the Front Hair is Black, Is a Hair Transplant Possible?

Your nape hair may turn white earlier than your crown area. Your donor area for hair transplant may be the area where you experience the most greying of hair.

If the hair on your nape area is white or grey, the doctor who transplanted the hair to the front should distribute it successfully. For example, if your front is black and your nape is white, your white hair should be transferred with a little more care.

While having a hair transplant, the doctor who will transfer it from your nape area has the chance to choose your hair on the nape. If your neck isn’t entirely white, the surgeon can take your white hair follicles and perform the procedure. Also, if the surgeon removes both your white and black hair in a mixed way, a much more aesthetic-looking process will be served.

Will White Hair Become White Again After Hair Transplant?

The surgeon takes your hair follicles from your nape area. Then the surgeon transfers it to your crown and temple areas. Your hair follicles grow again, preserving their properties in this region. In other words, if your hair on the nape will turn white in the future, your hair that will be transferred to the crown will also turn white in the future. In addition, when you have a hair transplant while your hair on the nape is black, your transferred hair will turn white over time as you age.

Can Transferred Hair Be Dyed?

The transferred hair doesn’t need to be treated differently after a year. So you can cut and dye it like any other hair. You can even blow dry your hair regularly. Your hair follicles that settle on your scalp aren’t affected by minor traumas. The sensitivity of your hair will be like your original hair.
