CNN ran a story recently re an increase in scalp hair to beard transplants, for the purpose of creating a thicker beard.
Question: Assuming beard hair cycles at 1/4 the rate of scalp hair, will the newly implanted scalp hair tend to take on the surrounding beard hair
characteristics? Specifically, hair thickness, color, “stiffness”, and shedding period. I recall speculation about beard and body hair transplants taking on scalp characteristic, but is the opposite true?
