I have lost quite a bit of hair on the top and the crown so much so that I have been using Regaine Foam for a few years and was thinking of a transplant. A friend advised against a transplant however as I am still in my 20’s.
I have only just recently discovered hair loss concealers. I went along to see a new car to buy and I mentioned to the seller that I would like a convertible while I was still young enough and didn’t have any children. I said I may look older with my thinning hair but I was actually in my 20’s. He just grinned at me and replied “you think this hair is all my own”. His appeared full and thick – no sign of thinning what so ever.
Then he fetched the product that he said he used to thicken his hair from the glove box and tried it on me. Well I could not believe the transformation and it only took around 30 seconds from looking very thin on top to a full head of thick looking hair. Needless to say it could have been much better if he had spent a little more time doing it and used the locking spray. The product he was using was called Caboki.
- Researching fibre products on the web I have learned a lot more about them but what I really wanted to know and the question I can’t find the answer- so far – which is the better concealer do you think and which should I get. I have been really pleased with Caboki nevertheless there exist many available such as Super Million Hair, Toppik, Nanogen, 3dHair, Viviscal, Dermatech.
- Also Ebay has many unbranded keratin fibre products. Note don’t want anything which looks the least bit unnatural – I would rather not use it at all than look as if I am balding and trying to hide it. Are the non branded fibres any good? Do they stand up to the more expensive brand names like Nanogen and Toppik.
- Do you know of any side effect you can get from using these products? Do you remove them before you go to bed and re-apply in the morning or do you leave them in?
- Locking sprays: can you use the normal and cheaper hairsprays from high street stores or do I really need to use the ones sold by the fibre brands?
- How much does it cost you to wear them every day? I notice that on this site a 30g jar costs around £25 but how long does one jar last if you use it every day and you have lost about half?

- My preference is the Nanogen or Toppik but more so Nanogen – there are lots of stuff about these two brands on this site. I haven’t tried Caboki.
- I’ve never tried an unbranded fibre concealer.
- I would advise that you wash them out every night so you keep your scalp nice and healthy – you don’t want to make your hair loss any worse.
- Using normal hairspray should be OK but I prefer Nanogen’s Locking Spray – I know it’s a bit more expensive but well worth it in my opinion.
- 30g last me for quite a while – maybe around 6 month – but I don’t use it every day so it really depends on how often you use it.
If you have already used the fibres and you are happy with them I am assuming you still have some hairs left on the top of your scalp. Just realise that as these fall out the fibres become less effective.
