In many of your posts regarding body hair transplant, I see that you tend to discourage the use of body hair for transplants. Some of the reasons include the fact that body hair is curly and does not grow long enough. I am a black person who grows a short Afro. I have a bald spot of the right front side of my scalp which I have managed to concealed with my own pubic hair. It just so happens that my pubic hair is just as curly and has the same texture as my scalp hair. So what I do from time to time, is cut my public hair, wash it thoroughly and then get it entangled with my scalp hair in the balding area. The entangling is due to the curliness of the hair and it holds even in the wind.
So far no one seems to notice. In fact, when I first saw a hair loss doctor, he was amazed at how well I concealed my hair loss.
In any case, I think transplanting hair from the pubic area for African Americans may be a viable option since both the pubic and scalp hair in African Americans is curly and perhaps has the same texture in most African American(as is my case). In any, what is your take on this issue.
I have done a few pubic hair to scalp transplants and they work very well. I recall one African American fellow in particular and a few Caucasian patients that had this done over the past many years. The FUE technique may have a good role here.
I have also seen another person who used pubic hair to entangle with their afro to add bulk with the same observations you demonstrate. It’s certainly not for everybody, and I still say scalp hair works best.
