Female Hair Fibres
Our quest is to find the best cotton hair fibres for women. We have reviewed 6 cotton hair fibre brands to find out which are truly the best cotton hair fibres on the market today.
Hair loss concealers or hair fibres first arrived on the male hair loss scene, around 35 years ago. Hair fibres were a male invention to cover the first signs of hair loss in men. These initial products were derived from animal products so that they would contain the animal protein “keratin” which closely resembles the proteins in human hair.
Fast forward thirty years, and no woman wants to apply a product derived from animals, nor one that was designed for men.
Enter cotton hair fibres.
With so many of our readers preferring vegan products, we have reviewed just the cotton hair fibres. Animal and cruelty free, now a common expectation for women’s hair products.
Why Cotton Hair Fibres?
Cotton hair fibres are 100% vegan, made from plants and safe to use on sensitive scalps, damaged or coloured hair and for both men and women. Cotton hair fibres are 100% colour fast which means the fibres hold the colour when they come in contact with water, sweat or light rain.
We have reviewed what we believe are the best cotton hair fibres on the market and kept 3 factors in mind. The price per gram, colours available, resistance to heat, humidity and water and reviews.

During our research we noticed Amazon and eBay sell several knock-offs of Caboki and GoFbyr. The 22g black bottle of cotton hair fibres, similar to the Create Miracles bottle has been replicated and sold as the cheaper alternative.
Caboki offer a great colour range and the 25g bottle is great value for money however after reading customer reviews, it seems a common complaint is that the fibres don’t cling to the hair and can appear clumpy. We also had high hopes for GoFbyr but the customer feedback was that the fibre stuck to the scalp, not the hair making it look quite unnatural.
We tried Boost N Blend and found the cotton hair fibres stay on while we workout at the gym, slept and only needed to be reapplied after washing.
