Curly hair can be both good looking and difficult to manage. Because of the difficulties in maintaining them, people with curly hair always try to find out the ways to make them straight. Just like in straight hair, factors like genes, hormonal imbalance, unhealthy diet, and some medical conditions can cause hair loss, same is the case in curly hair.
To treat most types of hair loss and baldness, hair transplant is the best option. Hair transplantation is the only way to restore a desirable quantity of natural hair. People with curly hair may have a hard time going through a hair transplantation procedure. However, the challenges can be overcome if the right surgeon and suitable technique for hair transplantation are chosen. Here are a few of the challenges that a surgeon might face while performing a hair transplantation procedure on curly hair.
Selection of the right candidate
It is hard to find out the actual cause of hair loss in Caucasian people. Due to the resemblance in symptoms of several hair loss conditions, it becomes difficult to identify the real cause of the problem. Most people with curly hair suffer from central centrifugal alopecia or traction alopecia, while some are victims of androgenic alopecia. The former of these disease causes large scars while the later recedes your hairline. In Caucasian people, differentiating these disorders is a task and requires an experienced surgeon to do so.
As we know that a patient with running hair loss condition is ineligible for hair transplant, so it is very necessary to identify the real cause of your hair loss and its present condition before heading towards hair transplant procedure. Normally, hair therapy is concluded by the top surgeon to identify the real causes behind curly hair loss.
Recipient Site Creation
Unlike people with regular hair, the Caucasian people have a smaller number of follicular unit per square area and a larger amount of hair in per follicular unit. Due to these differences, surgeons select a larger recipient area than normal.
The people with curly hair enables the hair transplant surgeon to have denser hair at the recipient area without transplanting too many follicular units. The higher amount of hair in a singular follicular unit provides the benefits of covering a larger area, but on the other hand, it makes difficult for hair transplant surgeon to extract follicular units without damaging them.
Curly hair has a lot of twists and turns that make them unique and delicate, this leads to more number of follicular damage in curly hair as compared to the regular hair.
Hair transplant techniques for curly hair
There exist numerous hair transplantation techniques that can treat hair loss issues in curly hair. Choosing the best hair loss treatment according to your hair type is the key to the success of any hair loss procedure. Following are the best among them.
