How Black African American Hair Restoration is Unique
Since Black African American hair has a particular root and due to the curly nature of the hair follicle, a hair transplant is more sensitive to do than a hair transplant on Caucasian or Asian hair, however, despite the difficulties of the procedure, Clinmedica has an intensive experience and exceptional skills that enable the success of the hair transplant. Even though there are some similarities between black curly hair and other hair for restoration, the black curly hair has unique features that make it more challenging.
The following points represent the differences between the types of hair
- African American’s hairline can have two types of hairline positioning, low hairline, and a medium-high hairline, while Caucasian men have a high hairline and Asian men typically have a low hairline.
- The Black curly hair and its roots are easily damaged if the technique or tools used are not suitable to guarantee the health and the survival rate of the grafts.
- The thick curly nature provides more coverage than straight thing hair. Which means fewer grafts are transplanted while still providing sufficient coverage.
- Since many African American men tend to style their hairline in a straight line, the Black’s zigzag line is much smaller compared to Caucasian or Asian’s zigzag lines.
- The angle placement is very critical when dealing with wavy or straight hair, However, with the curly hair, the angle placement is not as important. The doctor must follow the natural direction and angle of the hair growth.
- Since the skin tone is medium to dark, the redness post-op is usually not noticeable.
