My husband, Chris, isn’t much for shopping when we travel. Then he went to Istanbul and came home with the ultimate souvenir – hair on top of his formerly bald head.
Apparently Istanbul is the center of hair transplantation. The medical procedures used to pluck hairs from the side of your head and plant them on top are more advanced there. Plus, it’s far more affordable than a similar procedure done in the U.S.
He returned nearly bald from having the hair cut super short for the transplantation. It grew out and now he has a full head of hair.
Read Chris’s book about his journey, Headscape.
