Can Transplanted Hair Be Dyed?

Find out if transplanted hair can be dyed from hair transplant surgeon Craig Ziering, MD in this Howcast video.


People often ask us what can I do with my transplanted hair after it's grown out. For example, can I dye it? Is there certain styles or cuts that I have to use? What about different products? Well, it's your own hair. You can do anything that you did with it when it was in the back of your head that you do with it now in it's new location. Since it's your own natural hair, it's just moved to a new location, you can do anything with it that you did before. You can color it. You can cut it. You can perm it. You can do anything you really want. Just remember, if it was potentially harmful or harsh on your hair in it's previous location, it's going to be harmful and harsh to your hair in it's new location.

Any product can be used for your hair after a transplant. There are some that can be better. For example, giving you a thicker appearance, depending on your hair type and the qualities of the oil that are in your scalp and so forth. You want to find what works best for you and stick with it.
