I have wavy and some curly hair...what FUE techniques work best?

This is not true. Individuals with wavy/curly hair can definitely undergo FUE procedures. However, the procedure may be a bit more complicated and require a skillful, trained physician. The actual hair shaft leaves the scalp at a different angle than the follicle. Because of this, trying to simply follow the hair shaft with an FUE punch to remove a follicular unit can result in transection of grafts. This is even more true with wiry/curly hair. Because of this, Either a superficial 2 step extraction process with a sharp punch and forceps, or a 3 step extraction process with a sharp punch, a dull punch, and forceps is likely best. Let me know if you have any FUE surgeons in mind, and I can help with additional questions.
