If you count the number of hairs in this follicular unit, you can see 4 hairs exiting at the skin edge, but the anagen hair just starting to grow has not reached the skin yet so there are at least 5 hairs in this follicular unit. This is why it is so important to use a high powered microscope to evaluate the ‘grafts’ when a hair transplant is done. We don’t want to waste any hairs, regardless of how small they appear because these tiny hairs will eventually grow up and be a full ‘terminal hairs’.
