What is special about afro hair
An afro hair transplant in Turkey is indeed possible. However, it differs from a transplant performed on a straight-haired Caucasian or Asian person.
The reason ? The structure of Afro-type hair is very particular. Everything starts in the hair follicles, that is to say the pockets that produce the hair, under the scalp. Where that of a straight hair will be vertical, it has the shape of an S for the African hair.
This curvature allows the follicles to produce dense , spring-like hair. Second advantage, the hair comes out lying down to cover the scalp optimally.
From a genetic point of view, curly or frizzy hair appreciates warm, tropical climates where the humidity level keeps it hydrated. The scalp is drier and thicker and the pores are tighter.

Baldness and afro hair: causes and consequences of certain practices
The afro hair follicle does not have a round shape but a flat one . Keratin, a protective role on the hair shaft, is not distributed in the same way: it is deposited unevenly on the hair. As a result, Afro hair is more fragile and more easily subjected to external aggressions.
However, in cold regions, such as Switzerland or mainland France for example, this can cause difficulties in hair care. The pores tighten even more due to the lack of moisture, preventing the sebum from evacuating properly.
This will have a double perverse effect : while the sebum stagnates under the skin and suffocates the roots, the scalp lacks it and dries out. This dryness makes styling curly or frizzy hair difficult:
- This favors the use of protective hairstyles such as braids or weaves.
- The use of ill-suited hair products further promote attack on Afro hair.
- In some cases, some people use straightening to facilitate hair styling but with irreversible consequences on the structure of the hair.
Traction alopecia, the African community more concerned
Black women and men experience balding areas , especially at the front of the skull . The front line is less numerous due to hairstyles that are too tight or very aggressive chemicals for Afro hair.
This does not prevent that your baldness can have a hereditary, food or hormonal origin. It is recommended to consult a specialist to analyze your scalp before your Afro Hair Transplant operation in Turkey.
Afro hair transplant: the technique is the same, but…
At Elithair, we only use the follicular unit extraction method (FUE technique) for our hair implants. It is the same afro hair transplant performed in our ultra modern clinic in Turkey.
This technique consists of taking the follicular units one by one from a donor area defined in advance, generally at the back of the skull. The implantation of these grafts in the recipient area can then be done using different techniques : Sapphire, DHI, Percutaneous defined by your specialist.
A specific diagnosis
The practitioner's experience with frizzy hair transplants will change your follow -up before surgery. At Elithair, you are assured of expert care for your afro hair! Dr. Balwi's team has already operated on more than 50,000 patients.
Among these delighted patients , you can discover Jahy's testimony in video subtitled in French (above).
A small advantage all the same compared to straight hair. It turns out that an Afro hair transplant requires the removal of fewer grafts . Because the hairline is more voluminous, it simply takes less to cover the same area.
What are the chances of success of my afro hair transplant in Turkey?
As long as the preoperative analysis is carried out carefully, your afro hair transplant in Turkey has every chance of success. The expert must take into account the direction of your hair growth . This requires careful preliminary analysis to diagnose hair loss and its structure.
The practitioner determines in which direction the root of the frizzy hair is tilted to gently extract it . With this information, he obtains a uniform result and a high growth rate for the patient.
