Is blonde hair finer than dark hair?
One of the main differences between blond and dark hair is its thickness. Blonde hair is known to have a finer structure. Some scientific studies show that as the hair colour gets lighter, the hair strands get finer.
This does not mean that blond people have weaker or less hair. On the contrary, blond people usually have more hair follicles per cm².
Will I be able to achieve good results with fine blond hair?
The high number of hair follicles is an advantage for blonde hair transplants. This means that the donor area has a high potential for donor grafts. Thus, even though you have fine blond hair you can achieve good results with a blonde hair transplant procedure. Furthermore, because the colour of your scalp and hair is much more similar, it is usually easier to achieve a natural look after a hair transplant.
Which hair transplant technique is suitable for blond hair?
Today, follicular unit extraction (FUE) and direct hair implantation (DHI) techniques are the two sophisticated techniques used for hair transplant operations.
Both techniques involve transplanting hair follicles individually, provide high success rates, and are suitable for blond hair. However, the FUE technique is much more commonly used than the DHI technique. This is because the DHI technique requires more expertise and has a higher price range.
Can I have hair and beard transplant at the same time?
Yes, if your donor area has sufficient number of grafts, you can get your hair and beard done in one session.
How many grafts do I need for a blond hair transplant?
As blonde hair has a finer structure, you might need more grafts for a blonde hair transplant. The number of hair grafts you need will change depending on the level of hair loss you are experiencing.

How many days do I need to allocate for the operation?
If you are planning to get a blonde hair transplant operation abroad, it is quite important to know how many days you need to clear for the operation so that you can arrange your calendar. Thankfully, a hair transplant operation does not require you to allocate more than 3 days.
You need one day before your operation to consult with your surgeon and decide on the details of your blonde hair transplant. The operation itself can be done in one day and usually, you are not asked to stay the night. It is a good idea to rest a day before you can travel again. Thus, usually, allocating 3 days is enough for a hair transplant operation.
When will I see the results?
Even though hair transplant operations offer long-term results, it does not offer instant results. Before you are able to see some real improvement, you need to allow the transplanted hair grafts to settle in and go through the shock loss period where you will experience a shock hair loss.
During the hair transplant recovery period, you can see some hair growth 4-6 months after your surgery. However, the full results of a hair transplant operation might take approximately a year.
