Afro hair transplant surgeries are something that people are looking into more and more and we are one of very few clinics who specialise in afro hair transplants in the UK. When it comes to hair transplants for people of Afro-Caribbean ethnicity, the procedure itself is more complicated than for other procedures due to the way in which the hair curls under the skin (not just outside of it).
We tend to find that men with afro hair prefer to shave their head if they are starting to lose their hair, however the completely shaved look doesn’t suit everyone and can come with its own challenges. We also find that the majority of women with afro hair who are experiencing hair loss look to wear wigs to cover this loss but this will never be a permanent solution.
For this reason, the FUE method is not the best option to use for an afro hair transplant, especially for larger transplants, as the delicate instruments could cause damage to the follicles and render them useless. The FUT method on the other hand is incredibly good for this type of transplant as it allows the extraction of the follicles without causing any damage to them or the surrounding scalp.
The afro hair transplant procedure can be incredibly rewarding for both men and women and will provide the impression of density, thickness and fullness to your hair again.
