If you happen to have a thinning hair and you are ruminating on the idea of whether you should give a hair building product a try and camouflage it, the odds that you will come across a myth or two about it is quite high.
These hair loss concealing products that we can see proliferating in the market today are hounded by myths. Many people have wrong impressions about them. If you come across at least one of such myths, it will somehow put you into thinking if your decision to try out such a product anytime soon will be good for you or not.
Hair fibres Australian products usually fall into 2 categories, the new cotton fibre technology and the older keratin fibres. Below are some of the features that make them distinct from one another.
For better understanding of what they are and how they work, I will encourage you to carry on reading this article in full. After all, educating yourself about this type of product will save you the hassle of being uninformed about it.
1. Hair Building Fibres Come with High Concentration of Noxious Chemicals and Compounds
TRUE for Keratin Hair Fibres
Most of the hair building fibre brands that are made from natural keratin actually have a couple of pretty nasty chemicals, too, and one of which is the ammonium chloride. These chemicals can wreak some pretty serious side effects especially to those who are highly susceptible to allergy. Therefore, checking out the label for the ingredients is highly encouraged before making a buy.
Not True for Cotton Hair Thickening Fibres
Fortunately, the vast majority of the cotton brands that we’ve researched on for this don’t have harmful chemicals in them. In addition to this, what they usually have instead as ingredients are mostly natural.
Therefore, it is a good idea if you will consider a cotton-based hair loss concealing product, most especially if you are highly sensitive to chemical additives.
2. Hair Fibres Australia May Cause Scalp Irritation and Itchiness
True to some extent for Keratin Hair Fibres
After subjecting a number of keratin products to some kind of blind testing, we came to a realization that there are people who are likely to complain that they find the product somehow irritating and itchy. There is a high possibility that it could be due to the chemicals added to the product that may induce itchiness and irritation.
False for Cotton Hair Thickening Fibres
So far, none of the cotton hair building brands that we tested showed signs that they can be irritating to the scalp. We can attribute this to the fact that most of them are actually made from natural fibre strands, and thus tend to come in their most natural colors without any need for chemical-based colourants.
3. Hair fibres will cause staining on the scalp, pillowcase, or clothes.
True to a certain degree for Keratin Hair Building Fibres
We tested out a number of keratin hair fibres and smeared a tad of colour onto fabrics, but they washed out pretty easily. We are thinking that this can be due to them having less colourfast as opposed to their cotton counterpart products.
With regard to the scalp staining concern, we realized that keratin fibres are likely to cause staining on the scalp. In our experience, it is greenish in colour, although it was easy to wash off with plain water.
False for Cotton Hair Thickening Fibre
We also conducted testing for cotton brands, and smeared some of the product on a fabric and on my scalp but they don’t cause staining, even with a tad of moisture.
Hair building products are a great way to conceal your hair thinning issues. If you are concerned with regaining your self-esteem again without having to shell out huge amounts of money and keep those prying eyes around you preoccupy themselves with something else, this kind of product may well serve that purpose for you.
