The hair which you have transplanted from the donor area to the area(s) needing coverage will never fall out again once it has had time to settle in; usually about six to nine months after the procedure. If you see a person who has lost hair you will usually notice that it is at the top of their head where they are bald; however, the hairs on the lower area of the scalp always remain. Even elderly men who have been bald for many years still have that strip of hair. These hairs that remain are resistant to the hormone DHT, which is what causes hair to fall out.

Regardless of the type of hair transplant procedure you have, whether FUE or FUT, the roots from the donor’s hair are taken from the back side of the head. These hairs are then transplanted into the area(s) in which you are seeking coverage, typically the top of your head. Because these hair’s DNA is already resistant to the DHT hormone, once transplanted to the new area(s) they will remain resistant.

Once that hair has been transplanted it is 100% your real hair and will never fall out. You can cut, dye, or shave (but why would you?) and it will grow right back as your natural hair color. While your doctor should cover this, it is highly recommended that once the procedures are completed that you start taking medication to reduce the risk of further losing any other hair in that area that was not transplanted. Those hairs that were not transplanted are still suspect of the DHT hormone and may still fall out.
