Last year I went for a consult with DHI - Didn't go with them but had a very pleasant sunny afternoon in London afterwards with a cold one. Anyway, for those that you don't know Amir Khan is a forty something bollywood legend. Perhaps, one of the ten top recognisable actors in the world.

I was fascinated to see that the walls in the rented office space were posted with pics of Amir Khan with staff from DHI. The guy I saw spent a lot of time telling me about the excellent work they had done on him (big stars probably don't have the same rights to confidentiality the rest of us take for granted!).

The story doesn't end there. A few weeks later I took the wife out for a much deserved night out and we watched Amir's latest hit: Ghajini. Amir is a perfectionist and the film is a homage to the perfection of his post work out body (google Ghajini and Amir Khan) and perfect hair transplant - complete with very clever use of strip scar. In fact he made it into a fashion statement. As a mere mortal I can but wonder that if DHI is good enough for Amir Khan, surely it is good enough for the rest of us? Don't expect them to keep it a secret though!

He must be the only person to have had a decent hair transplant with DHI. Avoid them at all costs. Your post is so transparently disingenuous.

I hear what you are saying Hairismylife. Sorry it sounded disengenous but I have no agenda and am here to educate and share experience with guys (and of course girls) who are desperate for help and turn to flash advertising using models with hair brushed out as before pics. I am very much against the conveyor belt approach and budget transplants and am no fan of DHI, BHR, Hospital Group or any other cheap hair dealerships. But the question remains - Why would Amir Khan (A man instantly recognisable to a billion people) go there for his work and have the photos taken to prove it. Moreover, why is virender Sehwag (also known to roughly the same billion) now endorsing them and plastered across their website. Many other young dudes will ask the same question? Why? Why? Why?

Amir please help out, these guys are too cynical to hold a sensible debate.

Celebrities aren't smart. That's one reason. At least not all of them are smart.

Plus, celebrities like to get paid endorsements and things for free. Free is cool, even if its just a $500 watch or a $500 Blackberry or a $10000 HT.

Plenty of celebrities have gone to bad HT surgeons and gotten bad HTs.

Why are you so fascinated by this phenomena? And why are you not a fan of DHI after you went for a consultation there? Or if you weren't a fan, why did you go at all?

Thanks windjc - In a nutshell - naivety and internet advertising and not knowing about this forum at the time.

Dreadlocks, no one amongst this informed and educated hair transplant community is asking the question why, why, why?

Except why do you treat us like idiots by pretending you have no connection with DHI? In a nutshell, DHI are desperate to improve their awful reputation for awful hair transplants. But your posts aren't going to achieve this. They'll have to try something else.

Im not here to prove my case but I find your suspicious minds interesting. What if I say that in my opinion DHI are low life that should be avoided at all costs.
