Can beard and neck hair be used for a hair transplant?

Beard hair is a good donor source for hair transplants but the character of the hair is kinky in most men, so a hair transplant using beard hair will produce a kinky appearance in the recipient area and as such, should not be used for the leading edge of the hairline. Neck hair on the back, on the other hand, is not permanent hair so if it is transplant, there is a good change that sometime in the future that hair will be lost
