You might have heard about the latest thin hair trend – hair fibers. If you haven’t, you might be wondering what in the world they are. Hair fibers are pretty much what they sound like – fibers that attach to your hair. There are a variety of types, including wool and keratin.
No matter what the fibers are made from, they are all “delivered” in a canister that can be sprayed or shaken over your balding, thinning spots. The fibers are shaken/sprayed onto your hair and, thanks to large amounts of static electricity, hold tight to your existing hair.
Which type of hair fiber is best?
The most common hair fiber options include:
Mixed fiber blends are the best way to get the static cling of fibers that look like your hair. 100% keratin will not have the luster of your hair, while 100% cotton may only clump on your scalp. Size is also another important component, as too-small or too-thin fibers will clump on your scalp or simply fall off. That’s another reason why you need to find the right mixed fiber blend.
All options offer wind and moisture resistance, though, which means you don’t have to worry about your new hair fibers blowing away or washing out in the rain. Most hair fiber companies say their products don’t wash out until you use shampoo.
How to use fibers properly
For many men and women suffering from thinning hair, fibers can be a lifesaver. Not only is it very easy to use, but it’s affordable and offers great results. Of course, there are a variety of options, but the choice is really a matter of which blend you want to use and the hair color you need.
Some companies offer more hair colors than others, so if you have a unique shade of hair, do your research. Find the hair fiber color that best matches your existing hair and choose that. Also, read reviews from fellow customers to see how the spray holds up to daily activities like:
The last thing you want is for yours to shed down your scalp and onto your face or neck!
Another important thing to keep in mind when applying fibers is to make sure your hair is totally dry and styled the way you want it before application. Once your hair is dry and styled, you can spray or sprinkle them in the areas that need the most help.
Let them “dry” and you can even gently comb the area to complete your look. Use a hair fiber holding spray (specific to each company and type of fiber you use) to ensure a long-lasting hold.
An easy solution to your difficult problem
Hair fibers offer men and women with thinning hair the chance to affordably and effectively boost their self-esteem. There are tons of pictures and videos available that show the difference a few seconds of their application can make on even the thinnest of hair patches. All it takes is a little research and a few seconds to dry the fibers before your hair will look thick and healthy!
