Causes of African American Hair Loss

Hair loss can be due to several factors, including male pattern baldness, thyroid issues, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), and more. Additionally, chemical relaxers, weaves, or protective hairstyles like braids or twists that are done too tightly can cause what’s called traction alopecia.

Traction alopecia is caused by repeated pulling on the hair that sometimes occurs throughout the styling process. Over time, the hair follicles can be damaged by tugging, resulting in thinning or balding spots. 

Symptoms of traction alopecia can include:

  • Small bumps on the scalp
  • Tenderness
  • Crusting
  • A stinging sensation

Our Methods for African American Hair Transplants

The Hair Transplant Center – New Jersey specializes in two hair transplantation methods: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). Our hair surgeons will work with you to determine the best transplantation method for your hair’s texture, depending on your hair loss pattern and desired results. 

FUE Transplants

FUE transplants are hair restoration procedures that extract individual hair follicles from donor sites on your head. These follicles are transplanted into areas where you’re experiencing balding or thinning hair. Additionally, with the evolution of wireless technology, FUE hair transplant tools are now even more precise, improving results with curly hair. 

FUT Transplants

FUT transplants require the hair surgeon to remove an entire strip of hair from the back of your head. This method is faster, as you can harvest more follicles at once, but it does leave visible scarring. 

How our African American Hair Restoration Process Works

Hair Loss Consultation

The first step before any procedure is to have a consultation with your hair surgeon, where you’ll discuss any concerns or aesthetic goals you may have. After thoroughly evaluating your hair, we’ll recommend the right hair restoration procedure for you and begin outlining your hairline. 

Hair Restoration Cosmetic Procedure

FUE Procedure

FUE is a hair transplant procedure that removes individual healthy hair follicles from donor sites on your head and transplants them into the areas of the scalp where you’re experiencing hair loss. Your hair surgeon will use a very small tool to extract each follicle, which is ideal for short hairstyles as it leaves minimal to no scarring. 

FUT Procedure

FUT transplants require the hair surgeon to remove a strip of healthy hair follicles from the back of your head. This method is the most traditional form of hair transplantation, but it also leaves a linear scar. FUT can be an excellent option for those with longer hair that easily disguises the scarring. 

Recovery and Results

FUE Recovery

The FUE procedure can last anywhere from two to four hours, depending on how many hair grafts you need, but recovery is fairly quick. Within two to three days, you can return to your normal activities. That said, we recommend avoiding strenuous exercise until seven to ten days after your procedure. 

While there will be hair loss initially, new hair growth will start to be visible within three to four months. After a year, you can expect to see full growth. The great news is that while you may experience some graying or thinning hair as you age, your results should last the lifetime of your regular hair. 

FUT Recovery

FUT recovery can be slightly more involved than FUE, with recovery time lasting anywhere from ten to 12 days. You may experience some itchiness or discomfort at the incision site, but our hair transplant surgeons can prescribe pain medication to help alleviate any pain.

The recovery time may be longer, but the FUT method is still a popular hair restoration solution for those with longer hair. FUT allows your hair surgeon to harvest more hair faster, reducing the procedural time. 

Benefits of Hair Transplants for African Americans

A hair transplant procedure has several benefits, but most importantly, it can help you achieve your hair goals and make you feel more confident. Some of these benefits include the following.

  • High success rates
  • Faster recovery times
  • Minimal scarring 
  • Permanent results

Your hair can be a point of pride rather than something you feel ashamed about or want to cover up. Invest in yourself today!

How are African American hair transplants unique?

While African American and Black hair textures are well-suited to hair transplants, the C-curve of the hair follicles requires a hair transplant surgeon who can execute precise, skilled extraction.Our surgeons at The Hair Transplant Center – New Jersey are adept at working with all types of hair transplant patients, including our Black and African American patients, and we’ll work hard to get you the best results.

Am I a candidate for a hair transplant?

Generally, you’re a strong candidate for a hair transplant if you’re in good health, are not pregnant, and are experiencing hair loss.

How much do hair transplants cost?

The cost of your hair transplant will depend on the number of hair grafts you need to achieve your desired results. Each graft typically costs between $3 and $6, but we’ll review the expected prices with you at your initial consultation.
