Why The Transplanted Hairs Do Not Fall?
The time to fret over thinning hair or baldness is over. Surgical Hair Transplant is there to help you get your own natural hair back on the scalp. This hair is natural, permanent and aesthetically restores your youthful look. Whereas, the results of the other procedures are temporary and look artificial.
Now you must be wondering why these transplanted hair grow in a bald spot? Why the hair restored through surgical hair transplantation do not fall? What is the mystery behind their survival? Why did the hair from the front or the crown area of the head fell in the first place?
All these questions are natural and genuine, and does make sense. Since the follicles have been transplanted on an area that is known for shedding hair, the same should happen to the transplanted hair. You are not alone, 90 percent of the alopecia patients believe that the actual culprit behind significant hair loss is their scalp and not the hair itself. Others are of the view that the blood supply in the front and crown areas of the head is weak and this causes the hair in these areas to fall out.
But this is not true. Blood supply or your scalp has nothing to do with the hair loss or the survival of transplanted hair. It is the hair follicles that have the tendency to either fall out or stay on your scalp and complete their lifecycle. Hair on some areas of the scalp, such as frontal region or the crown, are prone to falling out whereas those on the sides of the head or at the back are baldness-resistant.
The reason these hair do not fall is their genetic programming. If you carefully look at older gentlemen with hair loss, you will notice that even if they have lost most of the hairs they maintain a rim of hair around the back part of the head. Why is it so? The hair at the back of the head were programmed at birth that they will survive for a long time. This is the reason that hair for transplantation are typically harvested from the back of the head and then re-planted at the front of the head. Now, if you transfer them to the front of the head they maintain the same genetic information of long term survival even when transplanted.
The transplanted hair miraculously keep growing like the other hair on the head. They actually require cutting and shampooing on a regular basis. Since the transplanted hairs genetically resistant to baldness, they will not thin or fall out in the future.
