Hair Transplant Using Shedded Hair?

July 14th, 2008

Q: Can a hair transplant be done using the hair which has fallen out?

A: A hair transplant is really a misnomer, since it is the follicle (or root) that is transplanted not the hair itself – although the transplanted follicle usually contains a hair.

Hair, like fingernails, are dead and cannot grow once detached from the root.
