I’ve Heard I Can Get a Hair Transplant Using a Hat

There’s a lot of talk on the internet about hair transplant hats. As a result, people want to know if they’re a real thing. Well, yes and no. You can’t get a hair transplant using a hat. A hair transplant is a surgical procedure performed either by a skilled physician or by a machine specifically designed to do provide hair restoration services. So why do people think they can get a hair transplant using a hat? It stems from some simple confusion about a different hair restoration option – the lasercap.

You Don’t Get a Hair Transplant Using a Hat

Let’s face it, there are some pretty strange myths floating around out there when it comes to hair restoration and hair transplants. Ancient Egyptians thought that they could restore hair by rubbing their heads with a mixture of dates, dog paws, and donkey hooves.

An early Celtic remedy involved sealing mice inside a clay pot for a year before making a mixture that could not be touched with bare hands or the hair would sprout from the fingertips. No joke. Today, these obviously sound a little far-fetched. However, there is still a lot of misinformation about hair loss and the most effective treatments. Hair transplant using a hat is one of those common misunderstandings.

Understanding the Difference

Hair transplantation is a type of surgery that’s performed in either of two ways. FUT removes the donor hair by cutting long horizontal strips of the scalp to harvest the follicle grafts. FUE is performed by removing the hair grafts individually. The donor hairs are then transplanted into the thinning or balding recipient zone. Finally, newly transplanted follicles become established as the patient recovers from surgery. In the initial healing phase the newly transplanted follicular grafts will be very delicate.

If the patient gets a FUT procedure, they’ll have sutures at the incision sites where the donor hairs were removed. In the first two weeks following surgery, your scalp will need to be treated very delicately. Surgeons advise against wearing hats during this time. However, that’s not all. Activities such as swimming, exercise, sweating, haircuts, and the use of styling products should also be avoided. The scalp needs lots of airflow in order to heal properly and avoid any risk of infection.

While rare, if not treated properly in the weeks following surgery the new follicles could become damaged. In extreme cases may need corrective intervention. Needless to say, the technology to transplant hair follicles through the use of a wearable object like a hat does not yet exist. However, you’re not too far off. You’re actually thinking about LLLT hats.

You’re Thinking of LLLT Lasercaps

Just because you can’t get a hair transplant using a hat, doesn’t mean that there aren’t other exciting technologies that really do offer hope of noticeable hair restoration. Low-level laser therapy (LLLT) with laser caps is the closest thing to hair transplants in a hat that we have. Laser caps that employ LLLT use laser diodes on the inside of a lightweight flexible fabric to expose the scalp to light frequencies in the infrared range. These frequencies increase circulation to the scalp, improving the oxygenation and cell metabolism of the hair follicle.

This not only stimulates new growth but can rejuvenate hair follicles that have started to shrink, producing hairs that are thicker and healthier. Low-level laser therapy stimulates the production of the sebaceous glands which are responsible for the natural shine of the hair. It also enhances melanin production which means that users may see a reduction in grey hairs. Laser caps cannot revive hair follicles that have died due to conditions of advanced androgenic alopecia as well as other instances where the follicle has sustained permanent damage. However, laser caps are a great choice for those dealing with early onset of thinning hair or those who wish to use it as a preventative measure.

Choose Your LLLT Device Wisely

Not all laser caps are created to the same quality standards or have been tested for efficacy. However, the Capillus RX has been clinically tested in a double-blind study. Out of the participants who worked with the non-placebo device, 95% of them saw increased hair growth after only 16 weeks of regular use. They also saw increased hair density that averaged 51%. These are very encouraging results for people who have been seeking non-surgical solutions to their hair loss. 

Not only is low-level laser therapy with a laser cap pain-free, with no known risk factors, but it is also much less expensive than hair transplantation surgery. Plus you don’t have to worry about recovery time, travel expenses, or any of the other expenses that can come up as a result of surgery. A high-quality laser cap can help you restore lost hair without any of the discomforts of surgery, and at a fraction of the cost. So even though hair transplant using hat is not a technology that exists, laser caps are the next best thing. If you are looking for an effective non-surgical treatment for hair loss consider low level laser therapy.

The Capillus Lasercap Can Restore Your Hair

There are several benefits to working with LLLT devices. To begin with, unlike hair transplant surgery, this treatment is completely pain-free. They require very little time out of your daily routine, depending on the type of laser cap you choose. For example, the Capillus RX 312 only requires 6 minutes a day for treatment time. The Capillus comes with a rechargeable battery pack so that you can be on the go while doing your laser treatments. Not only is Capillus pain-free, but it has no known adverse side effects either.

While you can’t get a hair transplant using a hat, you can use an LLLT laser cap to help restore lost hair. The Capillus RX 312 is a prescription-grade laser hair restoration device. Use it as a standalone hair restoration option or in combination with a hair transplant. Additionally, use Capillus with topical and ingestible medicines like Finasteride and Minoxidil. However, it is not necessary to combine the Capillus LLLT lasercap with any other methods of hair restoration to achieve results. It’s a great option for anyone experiencing hair loss.
