What is the Truth about Grey Hair and Hair Transplant?

  Grey Hair and Hair Transplant - Hair colour is determined by Melanin, a type of pigment, which is produced by hair follicle cells called melanocytes. The genetic makeup of a person influences the quantity of melanin that is formed in the body and also dictates hair shaft colour. Some people have naturally grey hair, while most people experience grey hair with advancing age when melanin production is reduced or stopped and the shafts of hair lose colour to become white or grey. Many people wonder whether grey can be used for hair transplantation. Read on and find out the truth about grey hair and hair transplant.

Still healthy enough

The process of hair transplant in Turkey works by extracting healthy hair follicles from the sides and back of the head, where the follicles are not impacted due to the DHT that result in loss of hair. These are shifted to the sites of hair loss. Surgeons at noted clinics like SHIFT Hair Transplant can successfully transplant grey hair to balding areas from such spots, in a similar way as the normal hair follicle. This is due to the fact that even grey hair follicles are still healthy enough to use.

Have enough strength

There is a misconception that the strength of grey hair is less than that of pigmented hair. Even grey hair is as strong genetically as coloured hair and can be used in the donor site in a safe way. There are excellent benefits of using grey hair for hair transplantation, as this type of hair can lower the contrast between skin and hair on suitable candidates. Candidates can get a salt N pepper look, with the right thickness. They can have coarser hair, and each hair strand can offer better coverage on the scalp.

Reduces the number of grafts needed

When grey hair comes with other attributes, such as curliness or waviness, the results obtained from grey hair and hair transplant can be enhanced further. The total number of grafts needed for covering a particular spot can be reduced, and SHIFT Hair Transplant surgeons can achieve total coverage in only a single session conducted in just one day. In about a month or even in less than a month from the date of hair transplant in Turkey, candidates can apply dye onto their normal hair as well as the transplanted hair strands to colour them as they wish, and achieve the kind of hair appearance that they desire.
