How to get the most out of your hair fibers

Hair Fibers​ are an amazing solution for those who want to improve bald spots​ as well as for those suffering from thinning hair, or aging hair signs​. However, not everyone uses them correctly. Have you ever asked yourself: How do hair fibers work? And how can you get the MOST out of yours and achieve the best results? Keep reading!


First off, do you know about hair fibers?

In case you’re not familiar with them, Hair Fibers are micro particles of the same natural keratin protein found in hair, nails and skin. These particles resemble your own hair shafts. Here’s how hair fibers work: They are processed and charged with magnetism to make them adhere to the static of human hair instantly. Making your hair look 10 times thicker and fuller!

Most are made up of keratin. Others are made up of wool or cotton. There’s also a synthetic type –which, as the name suggests, looks and feels fairly fake. No matter what they’re made up from, almost all come in a bottle that you shake over any balding or thinning spots to make your hair look fuller. They also come in a variety of color shades and color match qualities.

Now, how do you properly use them?

Using Hair Fibers will immediately improve the look of thinning hair, but it might take some practice to style it properly. Also, there are different techniques you can use depending on the area you want to apply them to. These are some steps you can follow to get the best out of yours:

how do hair fibers work

1. For the Part Line:

Brush and style your hair as desired and then apply the fibers on the hair surrounding the part line.

2. For the Hair Line:

This might be tricky. A natural hairline is thinner towards the forehead, so apply it a couple of millimeters back. For better results you can use an Optimizer Tool or a comb to prevent fibers from falling on unwanted areas.

3. For the Crown:

This is a common one. You want to first brush your hair and try to use the hair around the crown to camouflage your scalp. Then, apply fibers evenly over the remaining bald areas. And trust us, after the third time using them you won’t need a mirror.

Some additional tips!

– Always use them on dry hair. Most fibers adhere to your existing hair by static electricity. If used on wet hair, fibers might become clumpy. If you do wish to use gel, apply it only after you apply the fibers.

– Use the right color for your hair shade. If you can detect the fibers when applied, it’s very likely that you need either a light or darker tone. Check out this Color Chart we have created to help you out (with real before and after results!).

– Apply the right amount. When it comes to fibers, less is more. Apply them in layers, rather than applying a lot in one go. Apply a layer, pat with your fingers onto the hair to spread out the fibers or brush slightly with a coarse brush. Repeat this until you are happy with the results.

A solution for hair loss

No matter the reason for your hair loss or hair thinning condition, there’s one major pinpoint that we can all agree on: it is the visual experience of balding or thinning what affects you the most on a deeper, emotional level. Plus, seeing your hair thinning or falling out stresses you out, which, in turn, causes even more hair to fall out.

Hair Fibers exist to help you break free from this cycle. To make you feel as comfortable as possible in your own hair. For some women, using Hair Fibers makes them feel younger and boosts their self-esteem. For some men, regaining control over their hair makes them feel more confident and manlier.
