Hair thinning is referred as losing hairs that create space between your hair strands. A human head has normally up to 100,000 hairs on a healthy scalp, and it loses around 100 hairs per day on an average basis. However, in some cases, the hair loss is aggregated and results in more than the usual shedding of hairs, leaving a wider parting or a thinning crown. It can be caused by different factors such as hereditary conditions, hormonal changes, stress and tension, unhealthy lifestyle and food habits, excessive styling, scalp problems, and more. With products such as hair thickening fibres, it has become possible to hide the balding area of your head and create a volumizing effect on your scalp.

Your existing hair and these tiny hairs bonds with the thickening fibre and gives you a natural looking pattern on your scalp. The fibres are made from complex organic protein such as keratin that quickly amalgamate with the existing hair and gives a natural looking effect.
