FUE transplated hairs different colour/texture than existing hair?


#1

This is a question for anybody who has had a FUE transplant into zones 1 & 2, the frontal hairline and temples, lowering hairline,ect.

Do your FUE transplanted hairs NOT match the colour and texture of your existing hair? Are the hairs darker and grow/look different than the existing hair on the top of your head? Are they wirey and dont look like your original hair? Do your FUE transplanted hair not blend in and match perfectly with your existing original hair? Does your new hairline and temple FUE transplanted hair grow in the same direction as your original hairline/temples and are they the same colour/texture as your original hairline/temples?

Your responses would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

If your existing hair continues to miniaturize, then they will not blend in perfectly with the transplanted hairs. The donor follicles are usually taken from TERMINAL hairs.

Hi, i understand this, but im not talking about this, im talking about the FUE hairs taken from the back and sides of your head not looking like and having the same growth direction/behaviour/ as your existing hair on the top of your head.

For example does the FUE hair grow out like the existing hair on the top of your head? Does it grow in the same direction as your original hairline/temples did? Are the FUE hairs wirey and kinky due to transplantation? Does this go away and mature over time? Thanks.

The KINKY HAIR syndrome. I know exactly what you are talking about. I might even have a picture of that in the archives.

Yes, some people have reported that. The hair will become normal after a few cycles.

Yes, once the hair goes thru a few cycles it will mature / relax and become more and more like the hair on the sides and hair that wasn’t transplanted. All part of the maturing process.

Pats said it. It takes a while for the hair to achieve the normal state. Once it does it will all blend in.

I will give you my opinion… which contrasts to a couple of the posts in this thread.

  1. You mentioned hair colour (color) of the FUE being different than the existing hairs (recipient hairs)… This depends… If a graft that is taken from the donor area is grey, white, red, or any other color different than the existing hair (the recipient area)… then it will remain the same colour (color). It will be different from the existing hair.

  2. You mention the direction of hair growth: This is based on the doctor that makes the incisions (the hole that the graft/hairs are to be placed in). If you see your transplanted hairs are growing in a different direction than your existing hairs, then your doctor was/is very inexperienced and has zero talent. Most prominent clinics and doctors know that the incisions are supposed to be made in the direction of the existing hairs.

  3. You mention a “wirey” growth of hair. From my experience, and seeing this for many years… the wirey hairs that grow in the existing hairs are due to a technician or physician smashing the graft into the hole and the follicle looks like the letter “J”. The follicle folds upon itself and it grows in a wirey spiral like fashion.

Thanks for the help and info guys i really appreciate it.

Another question, if the hair at the sides of my head grows out different and has a different texture than the back of my head, that has nothing to do with MPB progression or anything, will the hair at the sides of my head grow out the same when transplanted to the front of my hairline? Or will it change over time and grow out the same as the hair on hairline that used to be there originally did?

Doesnt the DNA of the of recipient area take over the transplanted hair DNA, and cause the transplanted hair to grow out the same as your original hairline hair did?

For example, lets say the hair on the top of my head and hairline grows out straight, but the hair on the sides of my head grow out a little curly, if i have the hair transplanted from the sides of my head to my hairline, will that hair grow out a little curly like the sides of my head, or over time will it change and grow out straight like the hair on the top of my head and original hairline does?

Thanks!

Hairtech is it possible that grafts move during the healing process and due to their weight they end up sitting striaght though doctors put them properly. I mean is that one of the setbacks of transplants alltogether which people should know or it all depends on the doctor Because i think i ve heard that from other patients

Isnt all transplanted hair wirey in a way. I dont know how wirey rawmans is
Generally the texture of the transplanted hair is different than the normal hair and though they soften up overtime they never become like your normal hair.

I am suprised rawman didnt know this before hand but is exactly what these forums should be about informing the patient of the drawbacks BEFORE they commit to surgery so that they will know all the truth. Its almost 2010 and people sound completely ignorant to the realities even though they had a transplant and they should be more informed than others.

This is ridiculous, thanx hairtech for your input…do your job man without compromising because we have other jobs and we cant be here all the time saying what is only logical to protect people from basic misconceptions

So all transplanted hair really is wirey? Doesnt it take on the same texture as your original hair used to be before you lost it?

Im not going to get into any details because im far to early to judge anything at all, but i just dont want anybody to be able to tell that the hairs in the front look different than my existing hairs, thats all i care about. I want it to blend in and be the same colour and texture, and grow the same.

Any other input?

Any other input?

You have absolutely every right to be skeptical about this…
Hairsite mentioned the Kinky Hair Syndrome but I will add the Clinic- tells-you-the-hair-will-relax-to-distract-you-from-the-misangulation-syndromewhich is rife. Hair from the donor rump, the back part, will always be thicker and coarser than the NW 1 and 2 hair. Essential point for would be ‘I’ll buzz my HT hair’ thinkers. My transplanted hair from 1988 is still waiting to ‘relax’. Now I admit that about 3 cycles in, it got better, but by no means will the HT hair feel soft like NW 1 and 2 zone hair. But, I discovered a less-than-perfect solution, bleach. And also, if the hair is greying it will help. The slit creation angle is one thing.th eorientation of teh graft is another and finally, if the graft twists or buckles when insertedin the slit. IMHO, you need to plant flatter to disguise this and this is ashort term sacrifice for a long term gain. Flatter the hair, the less potential for confusing and freaky angles. Growing the hair out helps to, but when that is not an option, it’s a problem. Good post and Hairtech’s stuff makes sense to me too.

Dont cycles take like 3 years each hair cycle?
