Hair transplant patients, as they gear up for the surgery, have dozens of queries: Will the transplanted hair develop their own root? How long will the grafted follicles take to grow hair? When I will be able to go back to work? When can I shampoo my hair? When is it safe to start coloring hair after hair transplant?
You can get answers to these questions and many more at Hair Transplant FAQs. As for the latter, since the transplanted hair follicles are more sensitive, it is usually recommended to avoid exposing them to harsh chemicals, such as bleaching agents, peroxides and dyes for a few weeks. Applying these chemicals to the freshly transplanted hair follicles can damage them.
Surgeons at the Hair Transplant Dubai Clinic feel it is safe bet to wait for 4 to 6 weeks before resuming normal hair styling habits, such as coloring, blow drying, perming and straightening hair. Also avoid applying hair styling products to the hair – gels, mousses and hair sprays – for at least a month. Transplanted hair follicles are no doubt healthier and stronger than the existing hair in the recipient area, but at the same time, they are more vulnerable to chemicals and therefore, should not be exposed to dyes, stuffed with thousands of harsh chemicals, for at least a month.
Once the hair follicles have attached themselves firmly to the recipient site and developed their own blood supply, it is perfectly fine to start coloring your transplanted hair like as usual. Now a million dollar question is, “How can someone know if transplanted hairs have really taken hold?” It is simple! Shock loss after hair transplant is a common phenomenon, which refers to shedding of transplanted hairs as well as some of the existing healthy hairs. It usually starts on the 3rd or 4th week after transplant. Once the hair shedding is over, you can resume routine hair care practices, including coloring your hair.
It is also a better idea to avoid coloring hair at home using over the color dyes. Instead, seek professional help. A skilled stylist will not only help you decide the best color match for your hair but also use mild products that are less damaging.

"I was really pleased with my experience at Dubai Cosmetic Surgery. I had to cancel the first date I booked, because of my daughter, but when I called them the next day, they fit us in that afternoon, which was really good. My mum and I went to a free consultation for Laser Assisted Liposuction, and it went very well. We were really impressed with the doctor, Dr. Juan Tadeo Krogulec - he was lovely. He spent as long as we needed with us, and didn't rush us. He was really thorough and not only did he answer all of our questions, he answered others we hadn't even thought of asking! I think that when the time comes for treatment we'll probably be going with them.".
I am very satisfied with my results. I strongly recommend this clinic for every one who wants great result and its very cheap to :). Dr. Cagtay and his team are very professional and do take care of their patients.".
