Gray Hair

I would be surprised if the gray hair was a result of the transplant and not already existing prior to the transplant happening. But talk to your doctor about your concerns if you can.

If you have issues after surgery it is best to follow up with your doctor for an exam.

Gray hair in the donor area at 2 months

There must have been gray hair that you did not notice when your hair was long and now that it is short, it shows as gray hair often grows faster than dark hair
