Anyone heard of this product? Never heard it mentioned. Similar to nanogen fibres but better value perhaps?

It's all the same, it you can get a better deal, go for it.

thanks for your reply. Are these things really all the same? Nanogen go on about how their product isn't soluble in sweat like 'the leading brand' and a bunch of other guff.

Started using the product a few months ago.

I work out a lot. Live in Florida and sweat profusely to the point my head is soaked. Never had a problem with it.

But I can tell you if I were to run my hands through my hair while it was soaked with sweat the Nanogen fibers would be on my hand even with hairspray applied.

The fibers stick to your existing hair with a bit of hairspray. Stay out hurricanes and you'll be fine.

It's a great product. I have had nothing but high marks for it.

I also have a handful of patients who are using it and really are happy. One patient told me that he apples the Rogaine foam on before applying the fibers and it helps them to adhear to the existing hair. Just food for thought.

Thanks for the replies. What does it look like when it's applied? Is it undetectable? or does it look weird? If I had it in my hair would I be constantly conscious of people standing behind me?

Looks kinda interesting

Looks kinda interesting

Can you unpack that a bit?

lol, I think I am going to buy some of this and give it a try.

I don't have diffuse thinning though. Where I do have hair, it is plenty and pretty full. But maybe it creates a better effect I don't know.

It's interesting because it will thicken up hair... maybe create a better look for everyone even if you don't have hair loss.

I am going to give it a try myself.

It looks normal and undetectable. If you use too much it looks chalky. Key is to apply a bit and gently rub it in so it evens out across your hair. Add a bit more if need be. Trial and error.

The only one that knows I'm using it is my gal. She's honest and said she can't tell at all....unless she gets eyeball to my scalp. But from a distance, even close up like if you are at a party no one can tell.

Good product!

I am assuming the chalky look is similar to dermmatch. Is it smarter to buy a darker shade? or even just to get black? Since black might look less chalky since its darker?

Definetly worth a try. Most patients become really good at using these types of products. Some even use combinations from different companies. You will be a pro before you know it.

Never used dermatch so I don't have a basis for comparison.

I have darker brown hair and I bought the dark brown. It only looks chalky when too much gets put into one place. You learn very quickly not to apply it too liberally.

Best technique is to apply a bit and then smooth it through your hair with your hand/fingers.

I don't think color makes a difference, just quantity.

I bought both dark brown and black.

Will let you guys know once I get them.

I don't have diffuse thinning but I hope it makes my hair look better lol

I've heard of people mixing the colors. I have a bit of white/grey showing up on the sides and on top. In an interesting way, the dark brown nanogen fibers do make my hair look darker and thicker, hence younger. I've read of people mixing the grey/white with the dark brown to keep their salt/pepper looks.

You'll find the application is pretty easy with some practice. Find some hair spray at the local store. You'll be good to go.

Can it be used without hair spray?

Can it be used without hairspray? I guess it probably could, but there will be nothing to hold the fibers onto your existing hair.

The packaging says they electrostatically cling to your existing hair. I don't know about that.

I was apprehensive about using hairspray, but there are some very light ones out there. Trust me, I didn't want the beehive, hair sprayed look or the Aquanet look from 1980's hair metal bands, but I do use hair spray when I use Nanogen.

Just enough to hold things in place...

Just another question. Is there any evidence to suggest these fibres are bad for the hair/scalp? Mighten they harm the growth of our precious few real hairs?

11-13-2010, 08:17 PM
doubt it since its the same stuff kinda

Nanofibers are chopped up bits of keratin, the same substance that makes up normal hair fibers. Been using for 3 months now and no adverse effects, except for realizing just how much hair you've lost.

11-14-2010, 08:57 AM
Oh right. Was thinking it may deprive the scalp of air or light or something like that. Mick from Farjo has told me that using the product 'doesn't do the quality of your hair any favours' but didn't explain what that meant. Seems like a great product to me. I've not heard anyone else say it's bad for your hair. Anyone?

Doubt its bad for hair.

How well does it work on the hairline?
