Hair transplants for men and women
Rather than synthetic or human hair, a person’s own hair is used in a hair transplant. Hairs from the back side of the scalp are grafted into the upper scalp of a person. There is no need to repeat it since it is permanent. This procedure harvest hair along with bulbs (the center from which hairs grow) which means that hairs grafted through this procedure can grow back and will act as natural hairs for a person. The area from which hairs are harvested will have lower hair density after the procedure but the empty area could be easily covered by the surrounding hairs. There are two techniques used for hair transplant one is called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) while the other is called Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT).
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
With Fue hair transplant surgery, each follicular unit is extracted individually. As soon as the harvested hairs have been harvested, they are then grafted into the desired area. It is unnoticeable and can be easily concealed with the surrounding hairs. There is a random nature to the removal process, which can result in a reduction in the density of hair in the donor area as well. No stitches are required since there are no scars. The healing time of this procedure is fast and there is less post-procedure and discomfort involved when compared to FUT. This method is the latest hair transplant technique.
Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)
In this technique, a strip from the back side of the scalp is harvested along with strips of hair. It is important to note that this harvest leaves a large scar on the donor’s body. As soon as the strip has been harvested, it is divided into smaller parts for further processing. Only a few hairs are present in each of the small parts of the strip. As soon as the harvested hairs have been harvested, they are then grafted into the desired area. As a result of the procedure, a scar will be formed as a result, however, this can be easily hidden by the surrounding hair.
Weaved hair conceals baldness or adds hair to existing hair. Synthetic or natural hair can be added through hair weaving. Different people’s haircuts are used to produce these natural human hairs. After the hairs are processed, they are then sold on the market for a profit. There are different types of weaving currently in use such as tracking, netting, micro braiding, fusion, etc. In general, hair weaving is used as a means of concealing baldness in men. Most people will go for a hair transplant if they are given choice, however, there are certain conditions where it becomes the only solution such as extensive baldness and other hair disorders.
Hair weaving is temporary
The hair loss treatment through this procedure has no center from which hairs grow (Bulb). So they are unable to grow which is the reason that they loosen over time and fall because they are glued to either scalp or hairs. The fiber of the waved hairs gets damaged over time even with extreme care. The result is for a few months. It cannot cure baldness it can only conceal it for some time.

Compared to the overall expenses, the initial cost of the procedure is less, but with repetition, both costs and time outpace the hair transplant. It can cause skin problems if used long-term.
