How Keratin Hair Fibers Can Help Reduce the Appearance of Thinning Hair

If you’re experiencing thinning or balding, you’ll be happy to know that there are clinically proven hair growth treatment options out there to help you regrow a head of full, healthy hair. Yet even the top-of-the-line low-level laser therapy devices can’t give you a mane of silky locks in seconds (though our team is working on it). As you’re treating your hair with professional solutions like the Capillus laser cap, it helps to have an in-between option that boosts your confidence in a hurry.

Enter Cap+ Keratin Hair Fibers. This line of instant hair coverage products creates the appearance of fuller hair in seconds, helping to fill in those frustrating balding or thinning spots quickly. This is not a permanent solution, as it doesn’t alter the hair follicle at all, but it does provide you with easy and immediate coverage to conceal areas of thinning. This is a natural-looking temporary hair thinning solution that really works well for people with mild to moderate hair loss.

How Does It Work and What Is Keratin?

In short, Keratin Hair Fibers work by dispensing thousands of miniature keratin fiber particles to your hair, causing them to adhere to your existing hair strands via static cling. The fibers are made with plant resinous fibers and a keratin derivative. Keratin is the structural material that makes up your natural hair, so it’s great at helping to create a discreet simulation of hair thickness. This material is also great for the existing hair, creating a barrier of protection and helping to restore beauty.

According to the American Academy of Dermatology, it’s normal to shed between 50 and 100 hairs per day, but anything more than that could signify a more serious condition. Hair thinning occurs for an array of reasons, from hormonal changes like pregnancy or menopause to genetic hair loss (androgenetic alopecia) that tends to worsen with age. Luckily, products like Keratin Hair Fibers can create the appearance of fullness regardless of the trigger for hair loss, making it a great option for short- and long-term use among both men and women.

How to Use Keratin Hair Fibers

Cap+ products are made to be fast and simple to use, and our Keratin Hair Fibers product is no different. All you have to do is shake the bottle directly onto the scalp and watch as it colors in sparse spots in a matter of seconds. Here are some specifics on how to apply it:

  1. Select the Right Color – One of the most important steps to applying this hair coverage powder is finding the right shade to match your natural or dyed hair color. It’s available in nine different colors, including black, brown, dark brown, medium brown, light brown, dark blonde, light blonde, light gray, and white.
  2. Wash and Style Your Hair – Make sure you’re starting with a clean slate before you use this product. Wash and style your hair as you normally would, ensuring that it’s completely dry. It’s important that you don’t try to style your hair too much after application, so make sure it’s ready to go before you begin.
  3. Apply Keratin Fibers –To apply the fibers, hold the bottle upside-down a couple of inches above the scalp, shaking lightly over the thinning area until it’s covered. Gently pat the hair to spread out the fibers and create a more natural look. Close the bottle tightly and store in a dry area when not in use.
  4. Use Fiber Holding Spray – Avoid combing or brushing after application. To help give the fibers a little extra hold, we recommend finishing application with the Cap+ Fiber Holding Spray, which helps keeps the fiber particles in place all day. This spray also contains sunscreen to protect your scalp and hair from sun damage.

When to Use Keratin Fibers

We always recommend this product to those using Capillus laser caps and other hair loss treatments that take weeks or months, but it can also be used by those who simply have naturally thin hair or who are experiencing temporary hair shedding as a result of pregnancy, menopause, a specific medication, or anything else that triggers thinning. This is a universal product that’s safe and effective on almost all sufferers of thinning hair.
