Afro Hair Transplant


Is Afro Hair Transplantation Performed?

Afro-American hair type has a curly, thick, and dense appearance. Due to its nature, the curliness of the hair also manifests itself under the skin. It is prone to dryness. It is a known fact that the Afro hair transplant process is more complicated than normal type hair. It is due to the structure of Afro-American hair type. It is difficult to find and extract hair follicles from under the skin. But this does not mean that hair transplantation cannot be done. 

Is Afro Hair Transplantation Performed

Although the transplant process is difficult compared to normal hair type, it gives positive results when performed meticulously by a specialist doctor. Istanbul Hair Transplant Clinic Hair Center of Turkey continues to perform very successful operations in afro hair transplants.

Afro Hair Loss

Afro Hair Loss

Afro hair loss is generally seen in individuals of African and Caribbean origin. People with the same hair structure as the race living in these regions also experience similar hair loss. The only permanent solution to the hair loss problem experienced by people with curled or frequently curled hair is hair transplant.
The fact that patients with Afro hair loss do not know how to care for their hair also accelerates the hair loss process. The presence of more than one Afro hair type also affects the causes of hair loss. The fact that there are four different Afro hair types and each type has its own problems causes confusion in people. Afro hair types are as follows:

What are the Afro Hair Types?

There is more than one Afro hair type. These options, which are very important for those who do not know their own hair type, also help determine the care process. You should take care to pay attention to the information that you will be more affected by, from the shape you will give to the decisions you will make. Andre Walker, who categorized from level 1A (straight hair) to 4C (curly hair), listed Afro hair types in the following four items:

  • Straight Hair: Straight hair, which is the easiest to transplant among Afro hair types, is known for its tendency to be thin and oily.
  • Slightly Wavy Hair: Light wavy hair, ranging from fine to coarse, ranks second in the classification.
  • Curl Modelled Hair: This hair type, which includes loose curls and corkscrew curls, has a more pronounced curl hairstyle.
  • Tight Curl Model Hair: The afro hair type is the most difficult hair type to transplant in patients with hair loss. These hair types, which have a very tight curl, can vary from small bobbins to very tight bobbins.

You can come to the Hair Center Of Turkey to learn your hair type and choose the most suitable products for your hair. In this way, you can handle your hair care routines more easily.
It would not be correct for patients who experience hair loss in the Afro hair type to attribute this situation only to improper care. Multiple conditions such as genetics, age, hormonal changes, health status and side effects of medications affect hair loss.
In women with Afro genes, too tightly tied hair suppresses the hair. The same situation occurs with braided hair. These conditions, which are related to hairstyles, can cause traction alopecia. This type of hair loss is also experienced in men.

Differences between Afro Hair Transplant and Hair Transplant

The differences between Afro hair transplant and hair transplant vary according to the patient’s physical, genetic, and hair type. There is no difference between hair transplant techniques. DHI, FUE, and hybrid hair transplant methods can be preferred in both transplants.
The more hair strands a person has, the higher the chances of experiencing hair loss and breakage. Therefore, the operation process applied to a patient of African or Caribbean origin with an average of 50,000 to 100,000 hair strands is not the same as a person with fewer hair strands. The adequacy of the amount of grafts to be taken from the donor area, the health status of the grafts, and which technique should be preferred in the area to be transplanted determine the differences between Afro hair transplant and hair transplant.
The fact that the grafts taken in Afro hair transplant are curved under the scalp is one of the factors that make the operation difficult. Specialists who need to be more meticulous and careful in the follicle collection process do not experience such difficulties in classical hair transplants.
In Afro hair transplant, which requires more meticulous work, it is more difficult to find and remove hair follicles than classical hair transplant. It takes more time to remove highly sensitive hair follicles during the operation. The fact that Afro hair requires fewer grafts than the classical hair type explains the differences between Afro hair transplant and hair transplant more clearly. Afro hair with curly texture looks denser than classical hair transplants even if they experience a small amount of hair transplant.
Afro hair, which has four different types, varies in the technique they need in transplant operations. The routines required by a person with one of these four hair types, which have different characteristics from each other, and a person with a classic hair structure differ. There are many differences from the shape of the hair to the effects of the products used on the hair.
You can learn the differences between Afro hair transplant and hair transplant by contacting the expert consultants of the Hair Center Of Turkey. You can end your doubts by getting detailed answers to the questions you are curious about.

Which method should be used for Afro hair transplant?

There are many methods for hair transplant. People with Afro-American hair type search for the most suitable method for themselves. FUE, Sapphire FUE DHI methods applied to normal hair types are also applied to Afro hair type. In these two methods, hair follicles are taken from the donor area and added to the area to be transplanted. While the FUE DHI technique remains popular in this sense, the FUT technique is not preferred because it is old and leaves scars on the skin. Which hair transplant procedure will be applied is decided by specialist doctors. Specialists should be preferred for the transplant of this hair type, which is difficult to remove and transplant. Hair Center of Turkey has been carrying out successful operations with its specialist doctors and professional hair transplant team in the hair transplant clinic in Turkey.

Afro Hair Transplant Results

The process of recovery and returning to routine after an Afro hair transplant is the same as the normal hair transplant process as long as the rules to be followed are followed. Difficult hair type does not affect this process. Visible and successful results are obtained in a period of 3-4 months. Due to the nature of Afro hair type, a more intense image is obtained in a short time compared to normal hair.
