Hair loss affects people of all races. And like any other race, Black men may experience hair loss for the same causes. Although Black men are known for their Afro-textured hair—which appears to be denser than Caucasian hair—they are reported to actually experience balding and hair thinning before the age of 30.

Extensive background in hair restoration and scrupulous approach allow to perform Black hair transplant with ease and in efficacious, effortless manner. Harvesting of Black, curly hair from a donor site for hair transplantation requires a slightly different technique. In caucasion hair loss patients, the scalp hair generally grows straight.
