While hair transplant is an option available for people who are experiencing balding in areas of their head, it requires that existing hair follicles be harvested and then transplanted into certain balding areas on the scalp. Of course, this has its limitations since there are only so many hair follicles to be harvested and transplanted. Luckily there is yet another hair restoration procedure on the horizon and it is known as hair cloning. But what exactly is hair cloning and how does it differ from the other types of hair restoration procedure. We’ll discuss what you can expect when you undertake such a procedure.

Hair cloning is the process where your hair follicles are reproduced using a limited amount of cells from areas that currently have active growing hair. These cells are cloned and multiplied in a laboratory setting and thus any number of these cells could be produced. They are then graphed back onto the appropriate areas of the skin. Hair cloning differs from hair transplant in that you have much more hair follicles covering the balding areas rather than only be limited to a number of hair follicles that you already have.

For people who are experiencing patterned baldness, hair cloning provides the most hope for regaining back a head full of hair. However, it works the best if you already have some hair growing on the back of your head or other parts of your body used could be cloned and used to produce growing hair on your head. In extreme cases where a person has no visible amount of hair growth that can be cloned and used, the hair cloning procedure can still continue with the help of a donor. Even so, the donor hair cells and certain other conditions must match in order to successfully carry out a hair cloning operation.

Is Hair Cloning an Option for Hair Restoration
However, hair cloning still has some of the drawbacks. If a person is experiencing hair loss or balding due to a genetic condition or genetic disorder, then the newly cloned and planted hair may also become vulnerable and susceptible to these same genetic disorders and conditions. It is unknown as to how long this new hair growth can last until balding starts to kick in again and for these people, it may seem like they’ll experiencing balding once again a few years after their hair cloning has been done. Additionally, hormones imbalances such as DHT can also become a factor in determining how long a newly cloned hair follicle will last.

Hair cloning is still a relatively new procedure and is still being heavily researched and studied, however with time, this is something that is bound to become a very viable way for people to get back their full thick hair.
