Generally it is a combination on both good hair calibre and density placed, no one aspect is more important than the other. It is one aspect that gets looked over and almost everyone concentrates on the density as the major issue. This is when doctors shy away sometimes when asked “what density” because so many other factors come to play, slit placement, hair to scalp contrast, hair calibre, curl etc.
As I said at the beginning of the thread the FU groups:
Follicular Unit Numbers: 1 hair 704; 2 hair 765; 3 hair 689 & 4 hair 358
A few more single hair FU were probably used compared to an average hair line and then good solid groups of two and three hair FU behind the singles to give it the thickness. He does have characteristics that help the HT and so the end result is a mirror of his existing hair.
I will check his density but from memory it was 80-85 along with good hair characteristics will leave this man with good options for the future if and when needed and he wants to keep with FUE as the technique.
