Daily use of camouflaging hair fibres

19 September 2022

A quick and inexpensive solution to your hair growth problems is the use of hair fibres. Camouflage bald spots or thinning hair with them so you don't have to worry about it all day long. But what is the best way to use hair fibres on a daily basis?

Daily use of camouflaging hair fibres

Hair fibres are made of keratin, the same natural protein that hair is made of. This makes the hair fibres similar to real hair and invisible to other people. The fibres look like powder, but under the microscope, it can be seen that they are small thin fibres. By means of static electricity, the fibres attach themselves like little magnets to the existing hair. This changes even the thinnest (vellus) hair into a fuller, thicker hair. The hair will therefore look fuller as a whole, and thinner areas will be less visible. There are various brands on the market, such as: Kmax, Beaver and Toppik. 

How to use hair fibres?

Hair fibres are easy to apply by holding the can upside down near the place where you want to apply it and then shaking it gently. Within seconds, thousands of tiny hair fibres mix with your own hair. When sprinkled lightly over the hair, the fibres attach themselves to the existing hair. After application, distribute the fibres by lightly tapping with the fingertips on the hair.

Washing your hair

The hair can be washed before applying the fibres. Make sure that your hair is completely dry when you apply the fibres, so that they can spread well throughout the hair. When you have hair fibres in your hair and you wash your hair, you rinse the fibres out. Also, when you have used the fixing spray, the spray can withstand some wind and rain, but is not resistant to a lot of water.

Combing your hair

Hair fibre is not just for men. Women can also use it to camouflage bald patches caused by alopecia areata or sudden baldness caused by telogen effluvium. It is recommended to comb the hair into shape before applying the keratin hair fibres. After applying the hair fibres, you can brush the hair superficially and coarsely or comb it with your hands. When using the fixing spray, the hair can be brushed after the spray has dried for a softer-looking result. The spray keeps the fibres in place.

Using hair fibres together with gel/styling products

The combination of gel and hair fibres is possible, but keep in mind that the result may be less beautiful. This is because the hair fibres stick to the hair when applied. If the gel sticks the hair together, there are fewer hairs for the hair fibres to adhere to.

If you use gel, apply it before you apply the hair fibres and let the gel dry well before you start bonding the fibres. If you apply it the other way around, the wet gel will pull the hair fibres away from the hair and the fibres will stick together.

Alternatives such as wax can be used in small quantities after applying the fibres, as this does not make the hair wet or stick together. This does, however, require some dexterity and practice. Hairspray can be used as usual, provided that not too much is used so that the hair becomes damp.

For best results, we recommend using only fixing hairspray. The spray secures the hair fibres to the hair, without wiping them away during application. In addition, the spray will fixate the hair, keeping it in place. The hair fibre fixing sprays in our range also contain ingredients to care for the hair and hair fibres.

Use together with a hair growth stimulating lotion

When using a hair growth stimulating lotion such as Spectral.DNC-N or Neofollics lotion, first apply the lotion and let it soak in completely. When the hair and scalp are dry, the hair fibres can be applied much better. In addition, the lotion cannot penetrate the scalp as well when fibres are used.

A lotion should be used twice a day. If you use hair fibres in addition to the lotion, we recommend the following routine: 

  • Apply the lotion in the morning and let it soak in well.
  • Then apply the hair fibres.
  • Rinse and/or wash your hair before you go to bed. This will wash the fibres out of the hair and prevent them from falling out during the night.
  • Then apply the lotion and go to bed.

Swimming and sports with hair fibres

The hair fibres can wash out or clump when your hair gets too damp. In principle, the fibres can be used for sports, but they are less resistant to heavy perspiration. With the fixing spray, the hair stays in place when wet but, like other styling products, it will wash out when swimming, in a downpour or when perspiring heavily.

Walking/cycling in the rain and wind

In light to moderate rain (and wind), the hair fibres remain in place if you have used the fixing spray. When the spray is not used, the fibres will not simply be blown or rained out of the hair, but the chance is greater. When it rains, the same applies as when washing the hair: the fibres are not resistant to this. After all, at the end of the day or the next morning, you rinse out the hair fibres with water and shampoo. 

Sleeping with hair fibres

In principle, you can sleep with the hair fibres. However, there is a good chance that hair fibres come loose during sleep and end up on your pillowcase. Our advice is to wash your hair before you go to sleep.

How do you store the hair fibres?

Hair fibres are often used in the bathroom. The advice is to do this when the bathroom is no longer damp from showering. This is because hair fibres are sensitive to moisture during application, which can cause them to clump. 

We also recommend that you keep the fibre container tightly closed and dry, preferably outside the bathroom or in a closed cabinet. The can of fibres can be sealed tightly, but in the long run, some moisture can always get into it.
