If you're looking for a new source of hair, you're not alone.Synthetic hair transplants can be pricey and, while they're technically possible, the procedure is still relatively new and requires a few months to be effective.But now, thanks to a breakthrough from the US and the UK, synthetic hair transplanted from a person with a rare genetic condition could soon be a reality.The breakthrough is the...
Hair transplant surgery can make hair look longer and thicker, and it can improve its natural curl, a study published this week in the journal Science reveals.
The study also found that the more people have had the procedure, the greater the benefit of the procedure.
The researchers compared the hair transplant patients to a group of participants who had not had the operation, who were asked to shave and then apply makeup.
The hair transplant recipients had a significant reduction in the amount of melanin in their hair, the researchers said.
The results are consistent with previous studies, which have found that people with darker hair have more melanin, or darker pigment in their skin.
The researchers noted that the results of this study are consistent not only with previous research, but also with earlier research that has shown that dark hair may be beneficial in certain skin conditions, such as psoriasis and eczema.
Researchers found that when the patients had the transplant procedure, there was a significant decrease in melanin levels in their body, which is a sign that the transplant was working.
But they also noted that when people who had had the surgery had a skin test, there were no differences in melanocyte count or levels of melanocytes in their scalp.
They did note that some people had a more significant change in their melanin.
In the study, the volunteers who had the melanin transplant surgery had longer hair that did not appear to be as curly, but it was still longer than that of the control group, according to the study.
The longer hair, called “natural curling,” was less likely to curl up in the way that the transplanted hair did, researchers said in the study that was published online Dec. 8 in the scientific journal Science.
It’s possible that some of the extra length in the transplants could be due to a lack of melanocyte cells in the scalp, the scientists said.
The transplanted melanocytes are more likely to be located in a specific spot on the scalp rather than in all over the body, they said.
“Natural curling” may be a term used to describe a hair transplant technique that involves cutting the hair off and transplanting it to the scalp.
Natural curling also has been used for other cosmetic procedures, such a laser treatment of hair.
The new results suggest that the natural curl may not be the only benefit of natural hair transplantation.
For example, the transplant may also improve the appearance of the hair’s texture, which has been linked to wrinkles, said lead author Dr. Jennifer J. Rees, an associate professor in the department of dermatology at the University of Arizona.
The transplants can also make the hair curl up more easily, which can make it more attractive for people with naturally curly hair, and the transplanting can be done on the patient’s own skin, not just on the donor’s, which could also be a benefit, Rees said.
Another study found that those with long hair also had a longer, thicker hair cut.
This study is the first to show a difference in hair transplant results between those with naturally curled and curly hair.
Hair transplant recipients are more sensitive to hair loss than the control groups, and are more susceptible to breakage and irritation, said study co-author Dr. Andrew K. Soderstrom, a professor of dermatological surgery and cosmetic surgery at the Cleveland Clinic.
“The study has some good news,” Soderström said.
“Our results suggest hair transplant may be useful for patients with naturally short hair.”
Soderstrom is also an associate editor for the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
