What’s my REVIEW of Super-million Hair?

Well I used it for my edges and it DID make my edges look fuller. The way it works is that it contains fibers similar to that in thickening mascaras that adhere to your hair follicles. Since I have natural hair, the fibers blended and looked real, i’m not sure how this will work if you have relaxed hair. The product claims that with wind and hair, the hair fibers will not scatter or fall off, However, when I went to hug a friend of mine who was taller than me, some of the hair fibers fell on his shirt. Also when I stood in the rain, some of the fibers were wiped off.

The product is not permanent and it does come undone.

If you are looking for a permanent solution for Hair-loss or thinning edges, this is NOT it; however, it does serve its aesthetic purpose of making my edges not look “scanty”.

So is this product WORTH the Hype?

Super million Hair, as well as other faux hair fiber products like Toppik are designed to CAMOUFLAGE bald/thinning hair spots NOT TREAT it or give you a permanent solution.

They are NOT replacement hair pieces that you can BRAID (someone asked this question in the comment section)

They DO NOT permanently adhere to your hair follicles and they DO Wash off.

This product is for when you want to braid your hair, or tie your hair in a bun and are ashamed of your bald spots or thinning hair, these products DO help your hair LOOK better.

Now,

If you have problematic hair, be it thinning, bald spots etc, when do you know whether to use faux hair fibers to MASK your problem or use hair products to TREAT your problem?

– If you have little hair around your hairline, the good news is that it CAN be TREATED, however if your bald spot feels like smooth skin, and it’s shiny, it means the hair there CANNOT be regrown. Skin-like bald areas on your scalp mean that the follicles in those areas are damaged and cannot deliver blood to oxygenate and grow new hair. When hair is that damaged, then products like Toppik and Super million hair can be used to MASK the problem.
