thanks for your input cal, but if the FUED grafts don’t correct direction after decades, then I think the HM’ed ones won’t either. Specially the ones ARI produce, because these follicles are generated from scaffolds, which are inserted surgically into the scalp.
If epithelial migration and cycling is a valid mechanism to re-orient follicles, then this should also work for FUEd hairs. (I think). Well, thinking again, a FUED follicle is surrounded by FUED tissue where the epithelial migration is not the same as in the surroundings… so this could disrupt the local migration.
I don’t know, Cal, maybe you are right that FUED follicles won’t re-orient, while HM-ed hairs will.
After so many years in this forum, we still don’t know the answer to the direction issue…
