Will new hair curl the same as original hair?

Recommended Posts

I am considering FUE to fill in my temple areas a little bit and strengthen my hairline. I have been quoted between 1200-2200 grafts are needed. My hair is not very straight, so I am wondering if the new hair will curl the same way as the original hair. Thanks for any input.

It all depends if the donor hair extracted has the same wave/curl as your hair on top.  Sometimes hair from different regions grows in different ways.  In my case, my donor hair had a wave to it when grown out long and it maintained that wave when transplanted.

As aaron1234 was saying, if the hair on the sides and back (the donor area) is wavy like the front is then the transplanted hair will be wavy as well.
