Can donor hair come from somewhere else other than my scalp​?

Absolutely! In male patients, the next best place to harvest donor hair for the scalp is the neck beard follicles. They are robust, have a natural hair cycle most similar to the scalp, are curly, which adds apparent density (compared to straight hair), and the donor sites heal quite inconspicuously. Other sites include the chest and abdomen, but these are a last resort.
