Hair Fibers Side Effects

People with fine or thinning hair often struggle to find a solution to the problem. They look for regrowth shampoos, serums, oils, try different haircuts, consider artificial hair like extensions or wigs, etc. Regrowth solutions take time and aren't always successful. Haircuts only work under specific circumstances while extension and wigs aren't comfortable for everyone. That's one of the reasons why hair building fibers have become so popular in the recent years.

What are Hair Fibers?

These products contain small, thin fibers that adhere to strands of hair and thicken them. If you have a thinning spot, the fibers will build volume, density, and thickness in the location. The solution will effectively disguise all problem areas, which makes this an ideal solution for people who are self-conscious about the condition of their hair.

Do Hair Fiber Products Have Side Effects?

Good quality hair fiber products like Hair 2.0 include natural keratin fibers that adhere to the texture of the hair strands easily. They don't include harmful chemical ingredients that react adversely with the natural oils of the scalp and cause problems. This makes the fibers safe to use on a regular basis.

Great products undergo thorough testing under different conditions to ensure they don't cause any problems for the users. This testing is done according to established industry standards so all important bases are covered well. Hair 2.0 provides a 100% risk-free guarantee so you can use the product safely and not worry about adverse reactions.

Side Effects

Many users worry about side effects and reactions, which makes them hesitate to use these products. All hair fiber products should be used according to the instructions provided and if you experience any issues, it's important to stop using immediately. However, side effects are unlikely. Here are some of the primary concerns voiced by users:

  • Additional Hair Fall and Thinning – Many people believe that using hair fibers can lead to more hair fall and thinning. They believe the fiber and other ingredients in the solution suffocate the hair root or follicle, which leads to hair loss. Research, test, and real-life reviews from unbiased users indicate that good quality hair fiber products like Hair 2.0 don't cause any hair loss.
  • Irritation and Redness – Irritation and redness are highly unlikely because the ingredients used are relatively harmless. However, it can happen to people with very sensitive scalp or to people allergic to specific ingredients. We recommend checking the ingredients list carefully for any items that might be harmful to you. That will help you avoid irritation.
  • Inhaling the Fibers – Many people have voiced their concern about inhaling these tiny fibers during application. Some believe there might be serious, long-term health consequences if they use the product regularly. Toxic fibers like ones that contain asbestos do cause lung problems but natural keratin fibers don't. You can use them regularly without experiencing any health concerns. However, if you're particularly conscious about it, you can wear a breathing mask during the application. Once the fibers adhere to the hair strands, they won't budge so you don't need to worry about inhaling fibers after that.
  • Bumps and Pimples – The scalp can become irritated if you don't remove traces of fibers and clear the product from the hair regularly. It's a good idea to allow your scalp and hair some time to breathe. A good-quality clarifying shampoo will remove all traces and ensure there's nothing blocking the pores and follicles on your scalp. Regular care and proper cleaning can help your hair remain healthy while ensuring you don't experience painful bumps or pimples.

Some Steps to Take

Side effects are relatively uncommon, especially if you use the product carefully. It's always a good idea to perform a patch test on any skincare or hair care product to make sure you don't have any allergic reactions to it. While these products go through extensive testing, everyone's body and personal chemistry are different. Some people don't react well to certain ingredients, even if they have been proven safe to use in real life conditions.

A patch test is easy to perform as you just need to apply a small amount of the hair fiber product on your skin and leave it in place for a couple of hours. If you develop any sort of allergic reaction or problem, don't use the product.
