Common "Less Dense Hair" queries answered by top doctors | iCliniq

Less Dense Hair

Less dense hair shows hair strands less than the average amount of individual hair strands on the head. Heat styling, tying the hair, and washing hair with hot water causes hair fall. Hair transplantation surgeries help to cover the patchy areas with hair loss. If a person is born with low-density hair, then there is no way to correct it.
