You can only receive hair from an identical twin for transplant
Hair from Identical twins!
Absolutely you can - with the important caveat that the "other person" needs to be your identical twin!If you are not lucky enough to be in this position, you would have to go on immunosuppressive drugs for the rest of your life and undergo periodic biopsies, just like organ transplant patients for other organs like hearts and kidneys. Since these drugs can cause a host of other side effects, and since there are other less risky options for improving your hair, it is simply not worth it.Good luck!
