Fibond Hair Loss Treatment {Review}

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

My little brother was diagnosed with cancer when he was a baby.  After removing a malignant brain tumor the size of a lemon, and undergoing chemotherapy and radiation, his little toddler head soon had a healthy amount of hair again and some people would never have known how he spent his baby years in the hospital.  Unfortunately, that wasn’t the end, and his brain tumor again returned 10 years later.  After two more brain surgeries and more radiation, it appears he’s out of the woods again, but it has been several years and his hair still hasn’t grown back, and it looks like his hair loss (at age 16!) is going to be permanent.

Evan really is a good sport about things, and he truly is a miracle to us.  For several years, he wore a baseball hat everywhere he went (except for church) and even got permission to wear his hat at school.  He has just recently built up the courage and self-esteem to go without his hat at all times, but we’ve still been looking into ways we can help him be and look like a normal teenager!  I was so so so excited to try out this new product on him called Fibond, in hopes that it could be a short-term helpful solution!fiBond_logo

I don’t think any of us were expecting an instant head of flowy hair, or that new strands would pop up like weeds, but I do think my entire family was surprised and pleased with what Fibond can do!  Its not a spray, a polish, a hair dye, or a pill.  Its more like a magical sprinkle.  You pour on these fibers like you’re salting your head with a shaker.  They are charged with static electricity which causes them to bond together and look, well, exactly like hair!

Ta-da!  Clearly, we chose a shade just a little too light.  This was the Brown, and next time we’ll go with Dark Brown.  He was curious to feel it out soon after we sprinkled him, and his fingerprints smeared off the fibers in a few places, but we noticed as the evening went on, that it set up a little better and it looked fuller, so had he waited a few more minutes, I don’t think this would have been a problem.  Fibond claims that it won’t come off in rain, wind, or perspiration, so I’m interested to see how it holds up in future scenarios like this.  At the end of the night, everything brushed off easily with a towel.

No, this is not a permanent fix for Evan, but my family and I were excited about the possibilities!  Doesn’t he look like a whole different boy?  For special occasions, won’t it be great for Evan to have a full head of hair for things like Prom and graduation?

Pretty fabulous if you ask me.  Of course, Fibond isn’t just for cancer survivors.  It is used by men and women of all ages and hair color.

I had a good friend once tell me her analogy of standing in lines in heaven to pick up traits and features for Earth.  I’ve mentioned before that I did not stand in the “Good Hair” line in heaven.  When we were all choosing what line to stand in and get our talents and strengths for Earth, I spent my time waiting in a few other lines and maybe I never reached the front of this one.   My hair is SO very thin and fine and it has a rough time recouping after every pregnancy.  Instead of masking my thin hair with accessories and volume-illusion styling, I’ve decided to attack at the roots, literally.  I really believe that an obvious difference is noticeable when someone uses professional hair care, specifically the premiere line of products from ENJOY Professional Hair Care.
ENJOY_Logo.12163705
ENJOY products remain at the forefront of hair care technology and consumer demand, and will change based on the needs of the hairdressers and salons’ needs.  They carry an impressive line of intense hair products, hair color, and flat irons.  I’m sure you can read, but here we have ENJOY’s Clarifying Spray, Hair Mask, and Nourishing & Moisturizing Oil.  I really love ENJOY’s look.  Their labeling is very crisp, clean, and attractive in appearance.
Nourishing-Moisturizing-Oil1Clarifying-Spray HairMask
And Super Hold Hair Spray, Texture Spray, and Volumizing Dry Shampoo.  I would love to try ALL of these.  I was super excited to be able to try out a trio of products!
Valumizing-Dry-ShampooTextureSpraySuperHoldHairSpray
Below is the Fine & Thinning System, which contains Volumizing Shampoo, Conditioner and Stimulator.  This trio is specially formulated to rejuvenate and revitalize, and is excellent with fine and thinning hair.  These bottles are so TALL!  Definitely salon-style, and a good amount of substance in them.  I’ve been using all three products every time I wash my hair for the past several weeks, and even after the first use, I’ve noticed a huge difference, and I’m really impressed!
IMG_4072
The shampoo has a very minty smell to it, probably due to the peppermint and tea tree oil, and it is shimmery sage in color.  It forms an almost instantly thick foam, and it feels like a thorough wash.  The conditioner is an even stronger mint (probably again from the peppermint oil and menthol), and creamy aqua green in color.  It contains thickening agents and stimulating botanicals and oils that provide increased circulation.  You leave it in your hair for 2-5 minutes for the full effect, and you’ll feel a nice deep tingle.  Then with towel-dried hair, you apply the stimulator as a daily leave-in scalp treatment.  Get this: ingredients within bind water and nutrients in the cell, and deliver vital ingredients for hair growth.  It promotes an increased blood flow to the surface of the scalp while refined avocado extract reduces the production of DHT and seborrhea, both causes of hair loss.  I really like that the stimulator comes in a pump so I don’t have to guess how much to use, or how much is going to come out if I pour it.  Again, more effective tingle associated with it.  This little guy is available in finer salons in a 7 fl. oz. size for $43.96.  These products really give your scalp an aromatherapy treat that reminds me of a visit to a high-end spa.IMG_4075

RESULTS:  I’m in love!  Even my tossled towel-tried-but-still-damp hair looks lifted at the roots and feels thicker and more volumized, with great texture and an awesome smell!  Over the last few weeks, I’ve been noticing a great body lift straight out of the shower that on its own is better than using other shampoos and styling products.  I think it creates a fabulous foundation to start styling with.  I’ve been happy with the styling I’ve been able to do with it, and the strong healthy look it creates.  I’ve noticed very minimal hair loss in the shower–much less than usual.  These are intense products!  Very strong, very effective, color-safe, and can be used on all hair types.

Oh my poor, poor hair.  I remember it once being so thick and long when I was young, but I think it was just a few too many colorings in college and the bodily stress of two pregnancies that have left me with hair that is so thin and sparse.  I know there is a lot I can do to help it along, specifically by using nourishing shampoos and gentle products while trying to avoid high heat and teasing, but I still haven’t been satisfied and have been looking for more things I can do.

I am a major skeptic of any ‘miracle pill’, but NeoCell struck me as a company different than others because it is backed by scientists and focuses on the power of collagen, the body’s structural protein.  I thought I’d give this Keratin Hair Volumizer a shot, and see if I’d be able to tell a difference in my hair’s sad state.  After trying so many products that work from the outside, I was intrigued by a product that focuses on hair health first from the inside.

This Keratin Hair Volumizer is a brand new product to NeoCell, so here’s a sneak peak at the packaging:

IMG_3665Just as you can read on the box, this product claims to improve hair strength, enhance luster, reduce hair loss, and increase shine.  It contains clinically proven ingredients, namely a Cynatine HNS, which is a high-absorption, patent-protected soluble keratin, along with a super collagen, an amla extract, and Vitamin C.

Ok, I kid you not that I have honestly honestly seen a huge difference.  I was just as skeptical as the next person, thinking how much improvement would I see from taking a pill once or twice a day.  This is my HONEST review that I believe this product does exactly as it claims.

For the longest time, I’ve had to consciously choose where and how I part my hair so as not to show the sparseness, but after a few weeks of taking a pill or two every day, I am confidently parting wherever I choose and trying new hairstyles that might be a little more exposing of thinning hair.  Besides feeling thicker, I can SEE new growth.  There are ‘whispies’ all around my hair line and at the nape of my neck, and inch or two long, that I haven’t seen for years.  A few months ago, I feel like I was showing a lot of receding at my temples, but it doesn’t seem to be a problem anymore.small

I remember days after giving birth, running my hands through my hair and with it, picking up a handful of hair strands.  There would be a good sized clump of it left in the shower after each washing, and I could feel individual hairs being plucked if I didn’t pull bobby pins out just so.  After using this Keratin Hair Volumizer, I haven’t noticed ANY hair loss at all.  A few strands, maybe a dozen tops, after each washing, which has been about every other day.  This is incredible!  This really has been my happy thought for the last few weeks.

Check out some of these other alluring products from NeoCell:

120  PomLiqPomseed

The more impressive the results, the more I’m starting to worry that these incredible effects are going to wear off when I stop taking this, since my hair will go back to being void of these nutrients it has reacted so well to.  If I notice such a difference, I’ll probably come crawling back to this stuff.  NeoCell, you’ve made my hair into something I love, and it will be so hard going back!  Let’s hope I never have to!

One lucky winner is going to receive their own bottle of Keratin Hair Volumizer!  Enjoy that beautiful head of healthy hair coming your way!
