Would the NHS pay for a hair transplant?

nhsName: Kerry 

Question:  I suffer from Traction hair loss as I’ve pulled my hair up in a ponytail for years, i have worn it down now for 3yrs and still no sign of growth, is there a chance that the NHS would pay for me to have implants?

Answer:  Even if there has been no tension on the hair for the last 3 years, although there will be no further hair loss, it is unlikely that the hair in the affected areas will thicken up without the use of a proven hair loss treatment or a hair transplant.  Unfortunately the NHS do not pay for hair loss treatments or procedures as hair loss is not seen as an illness, but more of a beauty issue.
