    Default PUBIC HAIR and BEARD HAIR as a donor source for a hair transplants.

    Can this be done? Is it being done already? I think pubic hair and beard hair are both dht resistant. If your hair is short and curly like mine no one would the difference anyway. Extracting hairs could be a bit painful though. Any thoughts?

    I know it is possible to move hair anywhere on your body if you wanted to, and body hair is in fact DHT resistant and actually is believed to rely ON DHT (if you notice people with high DHT, usually have hair everywhere but on top of their head, except those who have DHT-resistant scalp hair). However, wouldn't your pubic and beard hair be much more thicker than the hair on your scalp and look awkward? Also... I believe (but not certain) that the growth phase of body hair is significantly shorter than regular scalp hair, so that could cause long periods of the transplanted hairs to not be filling in. But hey man.. if you think it will make you happy.. it can be done, but I wouldn't recommend it because of the above mentioned. Good Question though.
