Rejuvenation can mean turning a follicle that’s not producing any visible hair, into a terminal hair producing one. This way hair counts can be of little significance even if HM is 100% rejuvenation.

» Which is why hair counts are important.
It may be harder to grow hair in a completely bald area, but that’s not directly related to the number of hairs there. It’s due to the severity of the damage done by DHT, which is directly related to the amount of time that the area has been balding. Now, it so happens that areas that have been balding longer, have fewer hairs.
So even if there is some relationship between the number of current hairs, to the number of new hairs, to say that this person or that person can grow 40 more hairs because he has 20 already there, like a certain someone is saying, is not very meaningful.
