You wish someone would call you thick headed
. Shedding sisters, rejoice!
One company, Fibond
, says that it has a treatment to make your thinning head of hair look fuller in just 30 seconds.
Fibond (retail value: $29.95), is a powder-like substance made from plant resinous fiber and a Keratin derivative resembling real hair.
“Hold the bottle upside down over your thinning area and shake...a full head of hair in 30 seconds,” the company says. Fibond is charged with static electricity so it clings to the hair on the thinning areas of your head.
The product comes in 6 shades (black, brown, light brown, dark brown, medium brown and blonde). It stays on until you shower but “won't come off in rain, wind or perspiration,” according to the manufacturer. “It's completely undetectable even if someone is just inches from your hair.”
The company claims it works on both men and women, and to prove it sent a bottle for FOF Founder, Geri Brin, to test.

“It’s easy to be skeptical about a product that claims it will make your thinning hair look thicker,” Geri said. “As far as I was concerned, a real (hair) piece was the only thing that would fill in my ‘balding’ spot, which is exactly why I have one. But when I had my piece removed last week for refurbishing, I asked my friend, Elline, to shake Fibond on my thinning mane. It did just what the bottle said it would: The scalp at the front and crown of my head no longer showed. I didn’t look like I could do a hair commercial, but I wouldn’t be reticent to go out in public once the Fibond was applied. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone whose hair has a low to moderate degree of thinning.”
It worked for Geri and Joe but will Fibond--max out your mane? 10 FOFs will test it!
