Author information

Department of Dermatology, St Vincent's Hospital, Fitzroy, Victoria, Australia.


A 57-year-old woman developed repigmentation of white donor hairs 9 months after undergoing hair transplantation for an area of frontal scarring alopecia present since childhood. The hairs have remained repigmented more than 2 years post transplant. We discuss possible mechanisms underlying long-term follicular repigmentation of white hairs.
