Hair Building Fibers
Outside of the salon/barbershop, Hair Fibers can be a little-known solution for people with thinning hair.
In this guide we’ll take you through the ins and outs of hair building fibers, when and where to use them, and how hair building fibers can grow your retail business as well as in-salon clientele.
What are Hair Building Fibers?
Hair Building Fibers are a non-surgical, topical solution for people with thinning hair.
Hair Building Fibers are generally made up of keratin fibers which is the same thing that makes up the hair on your head.
These natural keratin fibers are shaken or sprayed on to existing hair to create fuller & thicker looking hair for a lower price-point than other hair replacement and restoration solutions.
Natural keratin hair building fibers are an excellent choice for clients in the beginning stages of hair loss, and will help drive business inside and outside of your salon.
Most people that use Hair Building Fibers will be in the beginning stages of hair loss/thinning.
Some people never progress past this stage, which means that Fibers can be a great solution for the long-term, meaning you will likely have a continuous revenue source from some of your clients.
The fibers will not impede future hair growth, and simply stays in until washed out. It will not clog pores on the scalp and there are no negative side effects to using them!
