Beards may help combat baldness
tHe solution to male-pattern baldness may lie in beards. A complete lack of hair on the head in some men means doctors looking to perform a hair transplant have to consider other donor sites.
in the first study of its kind, researchers at the Dermaclinix hair and skin clinic in Delhi, india, compared head, beard and chest hair in transplantation procedures.
Writing in the Journal of cutaneous And Aesthetic surgery, they said that, over the first two months, the survival rates were highest for beard hair (95 per cent), followed by scalp (89 per cent) and chest hair (76 per cent).
