There is a manifold of myths and wrong belief systems that have been hounding hair thickening fibres. These wrong impressions we have about this type of products for male and female hair loss are working to the disadvantage of the people who need them the most. It keeps them from enjoying the benefits of having a full volume of hair again without having to resort to the use of invasive hair transplants or the drudgery of hair growth formulas and serums.
We have 2 classifications for hair building fibers. The first group is the older keratin fibres and then the other one is a much newer technology in this area, cotton fibres. Here is a compilation of the popular myths or belief systems that people have about these two types of hair thickening fibres.
Hair thickening fibers will prevent the development of new hair.
People are under the impression that hair fibers can get lodged into the hair follicles. However, there is no grain of truth in this. With respect to their size, hair building fibers are way too large, and this explains the reason why they won’t block the user’s hair follicles. Top of the line hair building products would have the keratin fibres intertwine to your existing hair strands, rather than getting lodged on your scalp.
FALSE (Cotton Hair Thickening Fibres)
We have the same reason for keratin-based hair building fibers. Perhaps the one thing that makes cotton hair thickening fibres distinct from the keratin-type of product is that they have higher, much-stronger cling value. Thus, the tendency for the hair fibers of this is to attach itself to the hair strands. Therefore, there is an even lesser possibility that they will gather on your scalp after application.
2. Hair thickening fibres have a high concentration of harmful chemicals
TRUE (Keratin Hair Fibres)
The truth of the matter is that all brands of keratin hair building fibres contain a certain amount of nasty chemicals, but not in high amounts. Perhaps, the most noxious among them is the ammonium chloride.
They are not harmful per se if the product is used regularly, but for those who are highly sensitive to them are likely to experience a few symptoms or side-effects. The best course of action here is to make it a habit to check out labels, and look particularly at the active ingredients used in the hair building fiber. Make sure that your body is not sensitive to every single one of them before trying the product.
FALSE (Cotton Hair Thickening Fibres)
In fairness to cotton brands of hair building fibres we’ve researched, they seldom contain noxious chemical compounds. Most are made from natural ingredients, which makes them safe for everyday use. Therefore, if you have apprehensions to chemical additives, you can turn to cotton hair fibres as a better alternative.
Hair fibres can be itchy and may irritate the scalp.
TRUE TO SOME EXTENT (Keratin Hair Fibres )
After blind testing some of the keratin-based products in the market, we found out that some people tend to experience mild itchiness and irritation on their scalp. This can be attributed to the chemical content of these products may contain. It is important to note, though, that not everyone who tried such products have the same level of experience.
FALSE (Cotton Hair Thickening Fibres )
After testing out some cotton-based hair thickening fibres, we did not experience irritation on the scalp with every single one of them. This might be due to the fact that these products are made from natural fibre and chemical free, and for that reason they only used natural colours for it
Regardless of what type of hair thickening fibre you want to try first, one thing is certain about — they bring along a high level of effectiveness in concealing your hair loss issue. These products are the perfect solution if you are aiming to camouflage your male or female hair loss concerns.
Remember, though, that hair building products work only if you have thinning hair on your scalp. Using these products on completely bald areas of your head will not give you a satisfying result since they need to intertwine with your hair strands first, otherwise, they will just fall off.
