What is DHI?
There are several methods developed to regrow hair. The two main types of hair treatments used for hair loss are FUT and FUE. Both the techniques are largely similar. The main point is extracting the hair follicles and implanting them.

While in FUE treatment the hair follicles are individually removed from your scalp directly. The extracted hair follicles in both the methods are transplanted to the balding area on the scalp.
