What hair problem do you have?

Baldness is seeing your scalp through your head of hair for two reasons; it is either a numbers problem or a calibre problem.

With hair loss, it’s important to distinguish which problem you have. If your problem is numbers, the only way to increase density is to physically put more hairs in your head. If you have a calibre problem, often the treatment best is to give medication. This can slow down the process of losing hair, and in some cases thicken up the miniaturised hair and give you back dense coverage in that area.

If you consider that bald patches often happen gradually; the hair begins to thin and miniaturise until wispy, and you are left with nothing. Hairline hair loss tends to be different; you just recede, as opposed to hair going wispy, and it just falls out. Hairlines tend to be more of a numbers problem, whereas crowns tend to be more of a calibre problem.

When you are choosing where to use your finite supply of donor hair, you’d be well advised to use it on the areas of your head where it is most needed on the hairline, and rely more on medication to thicken up the crown area. No amount of medication will bring back your hairline, but it may well assist in bringing back your crown. This means you can focus your donor resources on having a stronger hairline, and you don’t over harvest the donor area. This is important in case the patient needs a subsequent hair transplant.
