Hair Building Fibers | The Beginner’s Guide for STRAND BUILDER

Hair Loss in Men

Hair loss is very common with 1 out of every 2 men over the age of 40 experiencing some form of hair loss. Losing hair that you once had can be emotionally distressing and lead to anxiety and depression.  Natural causes for hair loss include aging, genetic predisposition and hormonal changes. Hair loss can also result from medical conditions, poor nutrition and as a side effect of certain medications, stress or a traumatic event.

Strand Builder Hair Building Fibers are a non-invasive, simple and inexpensive solution for covering up areas of thinning hair and part lines. Most hair fibers come in a variety of colors and stay put through your daily activities, washing out easily with an over-the-counter shampoo.

What is Strand Builder?

Chances are, if you’ve been in a barbershop, you’ve either had hair building fibers used on your hair, or seen them used on somebody else. These hair building fibers are usually made of keratin, the same protein that makes up your existing hair! Strand Builder can be used by anybody experiencing thinning hair, or somebody who has naturally thin hair. It can also be used by people who have patchy beards, making them quite a versatile addition to your bathroom cabinet!

Strand Builder comes in a variety of different colors to match any shade of hair. They can also be used in conjunction with each other, for example if you have salt & pepper hair you can use the black and grey colors together to complete the look.

Colors that Strand Builder is available in:
Dark Brown
Medium Brown
Light Brown
Dark Blonde
Light Grey

How does Strand Builder work?

The hair building fibers in products like Strand Builder statically cling to your existing hair to make hair appear fuller & thicker. By picking a color that most closely matches your own hair, you can ensure that the hair fibers you choose will effortlessly blend into your existing hair to make it look like you’re not even wearing them. We recommend applying hair building fibers to dry hair that has been prepped with Fiber Hold Spray. The Fiber Hold Spray increases the bond between the hair fibers and your natural hair, meaning the hair fibers will last much longer as well as looking more natural.

Once you’re happy with how the fibers look, you should use some of the Fiber Hold Spray again to lock those fibers in. Strand Builder’s Fiber Hold Spray is low-shine, so using it before and after application of hair fibers won’t make your hair look greasy.

Strand Builder Accessories

When you purchase Strand Builder online, there are quite a few accessories that come with it that can ensure you’ll get the best possible results. Most hair fibers are also sold with these accessories in an Intro Kit style box that gives the buyer everything they need right away.

Fiber Hold Spray

As previously mentioned, Fiber Hold Spray is a type of hair spray that is applied before and after the hair building fibers.
The spray preps the area for the fibers and then locks them in.
This makes the hair fibers look more natural, as well as giving you longer lasting results.

Fiber Spray Applicator

Until the Fiber Spray Applicator came around, you used to have to shake the fibers onto your head directly from the bottle.
The Fiber Spray Applicator allows precision application of hair fibers, meaning you can target specific spots of your head that need them the most.
It also gives you more control with the fibers in hard to reach areas like on the back of the head or the crown.
This helps when you don’t have anybody to assist you in applying Strand Builder.

Hairline Optimizer

The Hairline Optimizer is a tool that keeps hairlines looking natural during the application of Strand Builder.
It helps guide the spray into thinning areas along the hairline. This is to ensure a natural look so the hair building fibers stay undetectable, like they are in the other areas of your head.
