Are there any precautions to take while applying?

There are no major precautions. However, some general principles followed will get you a better result

  1. Make sure you dry your hair before applying. Any application to wet hair will make the fibers clump on the hair. If this happens, you can wash it off and reapply.
  2. Do not overdo the fibers. The fibers can again clump and give the appearance of weird looking spots.
  3. Do not comb immediately after spray. Let the spray dry for a few minutes. If not, this can rub the fibers off.
  4. Be careful of rain or water exposure when you step outside. A few rain drops may not be a problem. But any water can risk washing off the powder and risk of running on the face.
  5. Do not put any oil on the hair. The fibers wont still well on an oily hair.

Is there a room i should go to for applying fibers?

The fiber application can be tedious and messy until you get used to it. If you are new to this like how i tried this for the first time, the fiber was all over my clothes and my bathroom countertop. Pick a place where you can safely apply remembering that the fibers may sprinkle all over you creating a mess.

The ideal position may be in front of the bathroom mirror where it is easy to clean. Also standing in front of the mirror will give you an idea about the extent of application.

What is the benefit of combing the hair?

Combing your hair where the powder was placed or just moving your hand on it to make it look natural. The combing process or the moving hand actually makes the hair fibers bind with the hair better to give the appearance of a head full of hair.

How do fibers work?

According to scientific studies, the fibers are made of keratin protein and are derived from rice, rayon, wool and sometimes human hair. The fibers work based on simple physics where opposite charges are attracted to each other. The fibers are positively charged. Combing hair prior to fiber application creates negative charge in the hair and hence the fibers gets attracted to hair. The results tend to be better where there is some hair on the head to create that attractive force.
