Q: Can a hair transplant be done using the hair which has fallen out? — G.O., Gramercy, N.Y.
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.
