Hair Fibers

Use Help Hair Fibers to get instant looking density. Help Hair Fibers are an All Natural Keratin Fiber that is a cosmetic powder applied topically for the look of thicker hair. Can be used in conjunction with our Help Hair Shake, Vitamins, Shampoo and Conditoner. The Help Hair Fibers are free of parabens, phthalates, and will hide areas on your scalp that are bald or thinning. Blend several colors together to get the proper color match to your existing hair.  

Suitable for men and women, Hair Fibres instantly give you the appearance of thicker, fuller hair by concealing signs of thinning.

Made of natural, coloured Keratin protein that has a strong natural static charge, Hair Fibres Fibers bind electrostatically to your existing hair to give the appearance of volume. The premium Keratin used in our Fibres comes from a natural source. It is nearly identical to that found in human hair and so blends undetectably.

Other fibres brands are derived from lower-grade sources of Keratin such as found in plant based materials and rayon meaning that they do not have a comparable static charge. Consequently, there is nothing attracting them to the hair, so they tend to clump, shift or fall onto the scalp and look unnatural.

How to use hair building fibres

 

Using hair building fibres is incredibly easy… and fast! There are a lot of outdated opinions that concealment products are messy and fake-looking. But truth be told we’ve come a LONG way since hair in a can! Using fibres takes seconds and can easily be added into your morning routine, without having to sacrifice that lie in! It’s just like having spray-on-hair.

 

How to use hair fibres: Follow our simple steps to getting the most from your hair building fibres:

 

  • STEP 1: On dry hair, lightly sprinkle the fibres onto the areas you need it, such as the hairline, bald patches or the parting. Remember, less is more!

  •  

  • STEP 2: Gently blend in with your fingers for a completely seamless look. For more coverage, gradually build up the fibres to avoid clumping and allow them to blend into the hair.

  •  

  • STEP 3: For best results and waterproof hold, spritz with a Hair Fibre Locking Spray.

 

And that’s it! A few hair building fibre brands also allow you to blend together a few colours to achieve your perfect shade. Simply apply the darkest colour to your hair first, then lightly tap on the lighter shade and blend together with your fingers. This enables you to add a peppering of grey or white to suit more mature hair, and even mimic highlights in dyed hair.

 

Using hair building fibres with other hair loss treatments

 

Hair building fibres are far from the only hair loss treatment on the market; a quick Google search will bring up a ton of options for those of us suffering with hair loss, so it’s no wonder many people are left feeling overwhelmed with choice.

 

The beauty of hair building fibres is that they can be used in conjunction with many other treatments to conceal bald spots and thinning while you wait for the treatment to take effect. Since many hair loss treatments can take up to six months to really see a difference, using fibres in the meantime is a great way to create the appearance of thicker hair. You can be safe in the knowledge that your hair fibres won’t interfere with the effects of your treatment, whether its a hair growth serum, a medical solution like minoxidil or finasteride, or even a thickening shampoo and conditioner routine.

 

If you are using a topical hair loss treatment, simply apply to the scalp and allow to dry before shaking on your hair building fibres. For hair transplant patients, we would recommend consulting your doctor about using fibres after treatment.

 

Hair building fibres side effects

 

It’s an often asked question whether hair building fibres have any side effects, and a valid one at that. While the side effects are incredibly few and far between, it’s important to know all the facts.

 

Ammonium chloride
Some hair building fibres are formulated with ammonium chloride which is a non-organic ingredient used in a number of products as a thickening agent to help dyes stick together. Although it has been declared safe to use topically, any chemical can be hazardous if a significant amounts enter the body, causing muscle spasm, irregular breathing and irritation. We advise using a hair fibre that does not contain ammonium chloride.​

Cotton
As we’ve already mentioned, some hair building fibres are made from cotton fibres which can cause severe allergic reactions including rashes, dermatitis and respiratory problems. Those with a cotton allergy should steer clear of cotton-based hair fibres.​

Dyes
Perhaps the only side effect that is relevant across all brands of hair fibres, dyes can cause allergies like skin irritation and redness. We recommend you do a patch test on a small area of skin 24 hours before you use them to see if you react negatively - many brands offer a trial size of their hair building fibres that would be perfect for this.
