Changes in hair transplant techniques since the mid-20th Century.

Hair loss has been a cause for concern almost since the dawn of recorded history. The Ebers Papyrus, discovered at the ancient site of Luxor in Egypt and dating from around 1500 BC, describes prescriptions and invocations for a cure for baldness drawing on medical “knowledge” from thousands of years earlier. Even Hippocrates, the Greek father of modern medicine, experimented with various cures for his own encroaching hair loss, apparently involving opium, horseradish, beetroot and pigeon droppings. Hippocrates’ experiments were, needless to say, unsuccessful. However, he did note that the eunuchs guarding the king’s harem did not appear to suffer from hair loss, leading to a correct assumption that the hormonal changes brought about by castration were in some way associated with this apparent anomaly. Indeed, we now know that the presence of the (predominantly) male hormone testosterone explains why, apart from medical conditions such as Alopecia Totalis, men tend to lose hair in later life while women do not, at least not to the same extent.
