I have been procrastinating going in for a consultation for a hair transplant but every day I wash more hair down the drain. Do I need to wait until I stop losing hair before I get a hair transplant?

No, it is recommended that when a patient starts noticing hair loss, especially if they have a family history of genetic hair loss, they consult a hair restoration specialist as soon as possible.

At the very least, the hair transplant doctor might be able to prescribe or suggest something to help slow down additional hair loss and possibly suggest hair transplantation surgery to replace the hair that is gone and will not come back.

It is not recommended to wait until one stops losing hair completely before they seek help regarding hair restoration.
