The Truth About
african american hair restoration

Many African Americans suffering from hair loss don’t think they’re good candidates for a hair transplant procedure because of their hair’s distinct characteristics. This is a long-standing myth. In fact, the curly character of black hair gives African American hair transplant patients a surgical advantage. That “curl” creates the appearance of more density, so it actually takes fewer hair grafts to achieve visible results.

Causes of African American Hair-Loss

Hair loss in African Americans is mostly attributed to the same genetic factors as other ethnic groups, except in cases of hair loss due to severe or prolonged hairstyling practices like wearing tight weaves and braids. These can cause traction alopecia. But the good news is that it’s one of the most common things our surgeons treat in African American patients. Dr. Ziering and his team of hair restoration surgeons utilize some of the most advanced hair transplant procedures available to restore your hair growth with natural-looking results. 

For African American hair restoration, special attention is given when harvesting and dissecting individual follicular units to avoid keloid scarring, which is of particular concern on darker skin. Additional skin testing may be required to assess how well your skin heals.

Excellent results can be achieved with hair transplants for African Americans using MDEE Strip Harvesting or Follicular Unit Extraction/Excision (FUE). If you’re African American and trying to figure out what to do about your hair loss, take the first step and schedule a consultation with the Ziering Medical team.
