I shave my head because my hair is thin overall, so my scalp would not make for a suitable doner site. Can hair from the under chin area be used to thicken my moustache and chin hair.
Hair from almost anywhere on the body can be used, although that from under the chin may be a bit difficult to obtain due to its awkward position. However, we have used hair from not only the scalp (which, incidentally, makes a great match for beard hair in most cases) but also the chest and legs at times.
