Is it a good idea to use beard hair to fill in a bald crown?
The beard can be a wonderful source of hair transplant donor hair for those that have not enough scalp hair. It is the heartiest of donor hairs outside of the scalp region. The problem for many patients is that beard hair is more coarse than scalp hair and is often a different texture and sometimes even a different color.
For body hair transplantation (BHT) beard hair should not be used exclusively in the crown as it would not produce as natural a result as would a combination of beard/scalp or beard/chest hair, assuming the chest hair is of a finer caliber.
