Hello, I am an African American teen and I was wondering if there is anything I could do to change my hair texture. Right now I have really coily hair. Type 4: Kinky. When you comb out the curls my hair is pretty rough and dry. I was wondering if a hair transplant of some kind would be able to change the texture to something more like Type 3A or 3B?

Thank you for your time.

No, a hair transplant should not change the texture of your hair. Sometimes as you get older, the character of your hair may change; it could become thinner, but it is not something I would count on.

You could also use chemical treatment to straighten your hair, but you should be very careful not to damage your hair or scalp this way. If you decide to go this route, find an experienced professional that can straighten the hair.
