Can One Person’s Hair Be Transplanted To Another?
The question I hear very commonly is if one person’s hair can be transplanted to another. The answer unfortunately is no, unless you have an identical twin. The genetic differences between individuals do not allow transplanting hair from one individual to another. I have spoken with a colleague who has even tried to transplant hair from one individual to another , and none of the transplanted hairs grew. The good news is that extensive research is being performed on ways to clone hair in the lab and we could see hair cloning in practice in perhaps 20-30 years. This will truly revolutionize hair transplant procedures as we will no longer have limitations on a patient’s supply of donor hair, and with unlimited donor hair the options will be limitless. Let’s hope the science can lead us there soon.
All the best,
