The iconic BBC Horizon team gathered together a team of scientists and doctors to investigate our hair. They visited research laboratories of some of the world’s leading hair care companies, including L’Oreal and ghd, to explore the latest cutting-edge research and technology for hair and hair care. The Farjo Hair Institute was invited to be the sole contributor on the subject of hair loss and hair transplant surgery. Watch Dr Bessam Farjo consult with our patient, Joe Leary, and perform with his team Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) surgery, assisted by the state of the art ARTAS Robot.
These investigations also study why we care so much about hair, and whether or not it is worth splashing out on expensive shampoos. They discuss the ingredients found in conditioners and reveal the secrets of the shiny, glossy hair seen in the marketing.
