Afro-Caribbean Hair Restoration
Many Afro-Caribbeans with hair loss or thinning edges don’t think that they are good candidates for hair transplant procedures because of the distinctive characteristics of their black hair. This is a long standing myth. In fact, the curly character of black hair gives the Afro-Caribbean hair transplant patient a real surgical advantage, because that “curl” creates the appearance of more density,using fewer hair grafts.
Hair loss in Afro-Caribbean is mostly attributed to the same genetic factors of other ethnic groups accept in cases of hair loss from severe or prolonged hair styling like weaves and braiding which often causes Traction Alopecia. Traction Alopecia is one of the most common Afro-Caribbean surgical hair restoration procedures our Ziering hair transplant surgeons perform.
