June 21, 2018People who suffer from hair loss often fear that they can't do much to revert it —or at least conceal it— once it becomes evident. Luckily, there is a wide variety of options that prove very effective to stop or conceal hair loss, from complex treatments like hair transplants and laser to simpler procedures like hair dyeing and nourishing haircare; everyone can find their own best-fitting solution.
After considering so many hair loss treatments, you will see that you do not have to fixate on complicated methods to cover baldness since years of research on keratin fibers have led to amazing haircare developments that simplify things for us. One of such innovative products is keratin fibers, which you may have already heard of. Hair fibers are growing common for people who want fuller-looking hair, but not everyone knows why and how they work (beyond the thought that they attach to hair like, magnets?) The truth is that although these tiny fibers may seem the works of eccentric magic, they're actually the product of science. In this blog post, you will learn the basics of keratin and hair structure, the origin of keratin fiber research, how Keratin Hair Fibers by The Cosmetic Republic USA works to cover bald spots and thinning hair, and how to use it and get the most of it.
What Is Keratin?Keratin (from the Greek kera —horn) is a generic name for the structures that act as an external protective shield in several animal species, including humans. Keratin is the main constituent of hair and nails, feathers, hooves, scales, claws, fur, among others. Keratin is mainly made up of protein and it also has a high content in cystine (an amino acid) and sulfur. The latter determines whether keratin can be considered "soft" (less than 3% content in sulfur) or "hard" (more than 3%), like that found in hooves, horns, and human hair.
In general, keratin fibers have a cylindrical shape and it is naturally insoluble in water, which explains why keratinized structures are mostly waterproof, and why keratin fibers to conceal hair loss do not run with sweat or water. Keratin is not only highly resistant to water, it is also resilient against chemical degradation because of its sturdy chemical structure. All of these characteristics show that keratin is one of the toughest structures in the human body.
The Hair StructureThe hair includes several structures like the hair follicle, the hair bulb, the hair papilla, and the hair matrix; all these are located in the dermal layer of the skin and play an important role in hair growth.
Inside each hair shaft we see, there are more components. There are three main layers: the medulla, the cortex, and the cuticle. The medulla is the innermost layer and it contains melanocytes, the cells that give hair its color. Then there is the medulla, which is the biggest layer of hair and it's made up of keratin and lipids. Finally, the cuticle (the outermost layer of hair) enwraps the cortex and protects the whole structure with shingle-like scales. When these scales are open from the action of harsh chemicals, rough handling, or other external threats, the hair becomes more vulnerable and looks damaged and lifeless.
Keratin Fiber ResearchBefore Keratin Hair Fibers came to facilitate life for people with thinning hair, many studies had been conducted to understand how keratin behaves and how to take advantage of it. Hundreds of years ago, a Chinese herbalist was the first person to ever do research on keratin fibers. It was finally in the 1800s when scientists discovered and classified keratin. After more research, by the beginning of the 20th century keratin was being reduced from wool, hair, and other keratinized structures in order to be used in the cosmetic and the medical industries. During the years of WWII, synthetic fibers like nylon were taking over, so wool was becoming less important. To counter this, Australian scientists conducted major research on wool fibers in the hope of protecting the Australian wool market, the largest in the world. In the subsequent years, several other countries conducted research on keratin, mostly Japan, who were the first to experiment and patent keratin-enriched hair products. It was only expected that science could bring a breakthrough product that would become a relief for people with thinning hair looking for a way to get fuller-looking hair. Research revealed that keratin-like structures could be found in vegetable sources as well. This opened the scope of options, and now we have high-quality keratin fibers from vegetable origin as the base component of Keratin Hair Fibers.
How Keratin Hair Fibers WorksKeratin Hair Fibers by The Cosmetic Republic USA is made from vegetable fibers which are very similar in composition to the keratin fibers in human hair. This type of fibers has an advantage: their electric charge. They have a negative charge which attracts to the natural positive charge of human hair; this is why they bind to your hair and won't come off. The binding of Keratin Hair Fibers is optimal since they don't cling too tightly to hair strands, thus creating visual fullness and volume. The weight of each fiber is also perfect weight to keep them from falling onto the scalp and clumping up.
When it comes to color, Keratin Hair Fibers has an advantage over other hair fibers since they are not dyed. Keratin Hair Fibers is colorfast, it won't run with sweat, rain, or movement. The fibers blend naturally to your natural hair shade, whatever it may be. You can choose from a wide range of 10 different shades: black, dark brown, medium brown, light brown, auburn, dark blond, medium blond, light blond, gray and white. You might be wondering how color blending adds up on gray hair, highlights, or faded color, but you don't have to fear uneven results. Keratin Hair Fibers is highly blendable. For instance, if you have a combination of very dark hair and some gray hairs or gray roots, you can use black fibers and white fibers at the same time. No one will see a noticeable difference between your natural hair and the fibers.
Keratin Hair Fibers is not damaging to the hair. Like every product made by The Cosmetic Republic USA, Keratin Hair Fibers does not contain strong chemicals. Its exclusive formula is enriched with vitamins E, B, and H, Horse Chestnut Extract, and Omega-3 and -6 fatty acids.
