I am a 48-year-old woman looking to change the texture of my hair. Would getting laser hair removal and then a hair transplant succeed in making my curly hair straighter?

No, this would not be a good idea to change the texture of someone’s hair by trying to do complete laser hair removal on the scalp and then having a hair transplant.

It is recommended that if you want to change the texture of your hair that an individual has some type of non-surgical procedure done on the scalp such as hair straightening, weaving, curling the hair or some other method to change the texture of the hair itself.

Hair transplantation in general is not used to alter the patient’s texture of their hair. It is generally only used to increase the amount of hair in a particular area that is thinning or balding.
