Did you say you were using the back of his head as a donor for this project? head hair keeps on growing long without a haircut and at least in my case, its straight with no curl or wave like a leg hair or pubic hair. Does this mean your client will make friends with a beard trimmer so he wont have long bushy chest hair?
Please explain. I am considering this.
Thank you for your question. Yes, scalp hair is used as the donor hair. Therefore, these hairs need to be trimmed every 2 weeks or so. For most patients, once scalp hair is transplanted into the chest, it actually starts to grow more like chest hair, becoming a bit kinky, so that it looks quite natural.
Hope that helps.
