I am a 62-year-old woman and would love to get a hair transplant because my hair is thinning on top but my problem is I dye my hair because it is turning gray. Will I be able to dye my new hair?

Yes, after the hair has grown in from a hair transplantation procedure it is okay to dye the hair as the newly transplanted hairs will act as if they were still in the donor area, which would have no problem being dyed.

Generally, I recommend that patients who dye their hair, dye it approximately one week before the procedure and wait at least one month after the procedure before they dye their hair again. There is no problem dying the newly transplanted hairs once they have grown in.
