How does Hair Building Fibers work?
We all know that our hair is made up of protein called keratin. These hair fibers are micro particles of keratin protein, either synthetic or natural, that are charged with static energy when they come in contact with hair. These micro fiber particles attach themselves to the hair strands, giving a thicker and fuller feeling to hair.
This is how it looks like:
- Thinning hair
2. Fibers get attached to your hair triggering static energy
3. Giving dense look to the hair
The hair building fibers do not regrow hair. They only cover them smartly to give an impression of fuller hair.
