Both men and women face hair loss with age. Sometimes, it may also lead to baldness or hair thinning. Therefore, hair transplantation is a good/lasting treatment for thinning hair or baldness. It is also becoming popular to improve hair density.

Can Hair Transplant Improve Hair Density?

Yes, hair transplant treatment helps improve your hair density. However, the results may vary depending on various factors. For instance, aftercare, treatment quality, and grafting technique are some factors that can impact hair density after hair transplantation. Keep in mind to consult a specialist before you go for a high-density hair transplant.

Nowadays, hair transplant specialists place hair grafts also called hair follicles; closer to each other than was done years ago. So, the grafts/follicles are well-positioned in several densities ranging between 20 and 60 follicular units per centimetre square. When hair grafts are transplanted closer, it increases the hair density to another level. However, follicular hair grafts can impact the growth rate in certain cases. It happens if their placement is very close. Therefore, ensure to get the hair transplant treatment done only by an experienced hair transplant surgeon.

How Does Hair Density Increase with Hair Transplant?

The high-density hair transplant technique is just the same as the procedure for covering up hair thinning or baldness. This process entails hair extraction from a scalp donor area and putting individual hair follicles on the affected area. During the process, several tiny incisions are made on the scalp. Since this procedure needs a specific number of hair grafts, this whole extraction process is a manual way of using an FUE technique.

Generally, when FUE is done, the surgeon shaves the donor area for extracting hair follicles. That’s how you get more natural hair. But to increase the hair density, a surgeon won’t shave the extraction or implantation site. So, one cannot figure out whether you have undergone a hair transplant treatment or not.

Nonetheless, it is vital to go for this treatment under the guidance of an experienced surgeon. An experienced surgeon can also offer you a custom hair transplant treatment depending on your requirements.

How effective is the Outcome?

How effective is the Outcome?

Before considering a hair transplant treatment for increasing hair density, it is vital to have a realistic expectation. For, a hair transplant treatment does not provide you with instant results. But once your hair begins to grow, it will be just like the existing usual hair on your scalp.

However, most patients notice some shedding of the transplanted hair, which may be disappointing for them. But don’t worry, as there will be new growth of the transplanted hair follicles. It is the same as your normal hair growth, but it takes some time to show results eventually.

How to Boost Hair Density after Hair Transplant?

Here are some important things that you must consider to prolong the effectiveness of hair transplants. If you follow the given tips, you are likely to regain your hair density after a hair transplant treatment. So, without further ado, let’s find out what things to keep in mind for maintaining the hair density of transplanted hair follicles.

1. Follow the Aftercare Instructions

It is one of the most vital things to do after hair transplantation. You need to follow all the instructions given to you by your hair transplant surgeon. If you fail to follow the instructions carefully, you will likely damage your hair grafts.

Things like eating/drinking habits, sleeping position, hair washing, and other activities also impact the overall results. Therefore, you need to follow all the aftercare instructions to keep a good hair density.

2. PRP Injections

The PRP injections are sometimes helpful in increasing the platelets concentration on your scalp. It also helps promote hair growth while rejuvenating your scalp. A hair transplant specialist may plan to inject a concentrate (including certain growth factors and proteins) into your scalp through these injections. This concentrate uses your blood to improve the condition and density of your hair. And, you also don’t have to worry about any side effects of this technique.

3. Eat Healthy Foods

After the hair transplant treatment, make sure to eat right. Always include healthy foods in your diet to keep your hair healthy, moisturised, and nourished. This is how the structural integrity of hair remains well-maintained. Moreover, you won’t lose your hair due to weakness or dryness.

4. Use Gentle Shampoos

One shampoo cannot fulfil the requirements of different individuals. For, certain shampoos are more suitable for specific hair types than others. So, try to find the best gentle shampoo to suit your hair type. The main goal of shampoo is to keep your hair and scalp clean. But with gentle shampoos, you ensure that the formulation of the shampoo does not impact your hair condition adversely.

You have to use a special shampoo offered by the hair clinic for some time. After that, you can continue using the same shampoo or find another gentle shampoo for your hair. Using the right shampoo can keep your hair well-maintained and away from any external damage.

5. Avoid Excessive Styling

Excessive hair styling tools like blow dryers, curlers, hair straighteners, etc., can cause heat damage. Due to this, there can be permanent hair loss over time. Therefore, try to take care of your hair without using too many heat styling tools. Avoiding excessive styling can help you keep good hair density.

6. Follow Proper Stress Management

The stress can damage your normal hair growth and impact the overall hair density. So, incorporate stress management techniques like yoga or meditation in your daily routine. You can take proper medical advice to improve your stress condition.

7. Scalp Massages

Massaging your hair properly is a good way of promoting better blood circulation on the scalp. It also provides the proper oxygen and nutrients needed for hair growth. Try to combine scalp massages with nourishing hair oils like coconut oil, argan oil, olive oil, or almond oil. These hair oils are good for providing extra moisture and nourishment to hair. Meanwhile, they help in hair growth.

What is the Hair Transplant Cost in India?

The hair transplant cost in India begins at a lower spectrum of INR 25,000. Generally, the hair transplant cost in India is calculated as per grafts or per follicle. The charges for consultation may vary in different hair transplant clinics. But the charges for a consultation often begin from INR 500 and go up to INR 1500.

The cost of hair transplantation varies somewhere between INR 25,000 and INR 100,000 for the mini sessions. However for bigger cases the cost will be judged after looking at the exact need of the case. It includes the cost of the initial consultation. However, this estimated hair transplantation cost may not always account for GST, postoperative care, and medications. Each clinic has its own method for such calculations.


Various factors can lead to a lower/decreased density of transplanted hair. Any injury, trauma, dehydration, and poor extraction technique can cause hair grafts to die. It means that new hair may not grow during implantation. Therefore, the overall hair density may decrease. Of course, there is no 100% survival rate for hair transplantation. But poor hair density is not desired after paying so much money for hair transplantation. Therefore, get your hair transplant treatment done by the best surgeon in India. Only a specialist can help you achieve the desired results.

I am honestly thankful to Advanced Hair Studios. I suffer from a hair-pulling disorder. There is this constant urge to pull off your hair follicles. It is painless when you pull but extremely painful when you see a missing patch on your scalp. But, I feel blessed with AHS hair fall treatment. I can see baby hair growing. It’s been two weeks. All I can see is low hair fall.

I have done my hair transplant surgery in AHS Delhi Branch on 2019 by travelling to Delhi from Dhaka, Bangladesh. The front and the back portion of my head were bald and through the hair transplant surgery, they have managed to cover the front portion of my head and the former appearance of my face returned back. The way they collected hairs from the donor portion did not affect my donor area at all. I am quite happy with my result. I have been consulting with them for a second seating so that they can cover the back portion of my head as well so that the hair density on top will increase and the bald portion of my head will reduce to a minimum level.
