Hair loss affects people of all races. And like any other race, Black men may experience hair loss for the same causes. Although Black men are known for their Afro-textured hair—which appears to be denser than Caucasian hair—they are reported to actually experience balding and hair thinning before the age of 30.
Since Black African American hair has a unique root, and due to the curly nature of the hair, a hair transplant surgery can be more challenging to do than a hair transplant on Asian or Caucasian hair.
Despite these challenges, FlyHealth’s partner hair transplant specialists, rich experience has made him the go-to hair restoration doctor because of his exceptional skills and sound record of success treating hair loss in African American patients.
Extensive background in hair restoration and scrupulous approach allow to perform Black hair transplant with ease and in efficacious, effortless manner. Harvesting of Black, curly hair from a donor site for hair transplantation requires a slightly different technique. In Caucasian hair loss patients, the scalp hair generally grows straight.
