If you have problems with your hair transplant results you should contact your doctor for a recheck or exam.

Kinky hair after a hair transplant

I have seen this problem in about 4 patients out of 15000 surgeries and in these 4 patients, the kinky hair stayed.

Hair texture change after hair transplant

It is not uncommon for the transplanted hair to be more coarse and curly following a hair transplant. This usually will work itself out over time. We see in our patients that it can take up to a year or more before the hair returns to "normal". In the meantime, you can dry your hair with a blow dryer while gently pulling with a hair brush, to straighten it and try other hair products to help with your styling options.
