Because African American hair type shows a distinct curly shape, the FUE method is perfect for extracting hair grafts without damaging the structure.

The DHI hair transplant method is very similar to the FUE method. The hair grafts are also extracted individually as the first step; however, a special tool called the Choi pen is used for the transplanting step.
