What is spray-on hair and will it work for me?

Spray-on hair is a hair styling product for men, designed to seamlessly and instantly cover up balding areas. It is usually totally undetectable and can look and feel very natural. But you have to get the right kind of spray-on hair. There are some rubbish products on the market, filled with chemicals that you wouldn't want to put anywhere near your precious follicles.

Here we give you the information on everything you need to know about spray-on hair and whether it's right for you.  We will fill you in on what kinds of products are out there, what it actually is, what it is made of and how it works.

What is spray-on hair?

Spray-on hair is also known as hair fibres, a natural hair thickener made to imitate the look of hair. The hair-like fibres have slight electrostatic properties so they cling to each hair shaft, making each strand of hair look up to ten times thicker. 

These hair fibres stay in place in wind and rain, while you work, sleep and play (both vertically and horizontally) and will not budge till you wash them out. 

Hair fibres will cling to even the finest hair. So if your hair loss is advanced, it may not be too late to cover up that balding crown or receding hairline. 

Spray-on hair comes in a variety of hair colours. You choose the colour closest to your hair colour. The Nut Job Hair colours are very true to life. The shade you choose will blend in seamlessly and disperse throughout the existing hair to become camouflaged completely, and no one will be able to see it or know you have thickened your hair in any way.

And in case you are wondering, no she won't know! Daz, a long time Nut Job customer hadn't told his fiance that he wore fibres until after they were engaged. She had never noticed, and once he (rather nervously) told her, she said "Cool, just keep doing it, I like you with more hair". And so he did, and still does some seven years later.

Nut Job Hair Fibres is Australia's number one brand preferred by countless TV personalities who use hair fibres, and by hundreds of thousands of Australian men. You can read what hundreds of men have said here.

Nut Job Hair Fibres are made from the latest technology cotton with an exclusive no-run formula that stays put while you go about your day. Nut Job Hair Fibres have no side effects and are safe to use as for guaranteed hair thickening every day.

What is it made of?

The best type of spray-on hair is made from cotton and with minimal chemicals. After all, if you are balding, suffering from any kind of alopecia, hair loss or hair thinning, you don't want to put a product on your scalp that contains a dozen chemicals that will compromise the health of your hair follicles. 

Cotton's natural colour fast properties means that hair fibres made from cotton retain their colour, so no colour leaches out - ever. A well-known issue with so-called keratin hair fibres is that they are made from a plethora of chemicals made to imitate the natural keratin protein found in hair. Problem is, they are not colour fast and there are countless stories of men with hair looking green in the sun, or with colour running down their face (thinking Mayor Guiliani? Yikes!) Take a glass of water and sprinkle in some Nut Job Hair Fibres and see that the colour does not run. Or check out our experiment here.

How does spray-on hair work?

Nut Job is specially statically charged to cling to your hair making it appear fuller and thicker instantly. So you just direct it at your thinning hair and the fibres do the rest. Like bees to a honey pot - they fly to the hair and super cling in place.

Other products are heavy and not adequately charged so they just plop onto your scalp and make you look like you've coloured your head in with a texta. Yikes. Nut Job is totally different. It clings to your existing hair to make it appear fuller, rather than just colouring in your scalp. You want more hair, not a coloured scalp, right?

How do you apply spray-on hair fibres?

You can either shake them on or use the pump applicator to spray them into place. The majority of men shake the fibres onto their hair and then 'pat' them in with their fingers or the palm of the hand. That way the fibres move down the hair shaft rather than sitting on the top of the hair. Once they have moved down the hair shaft, they blend in with the hair, and become invisible. 

Nut Job Hair Fibres can also be sprayed on. They can come with an optional hair spray pump applicator which can be screwed onto the top of the bottle to allow you to spray on the product. The advantage of the spray technique is that the fibres can be directed into one small spot. Great for the frontal hairline.

Application does take practice. Some guys find that the fibres go straight through to the scalp and seem to avoid the cling. This can be due to a number of factors such as: not enough hair for the fibres to cling to, applying too much or using a shampoo, conditioner or styling product that is coating the hair shaft, thus taking away the hair's natural negative charge (required for the positively charged fibres to cling to).

But never fear, you can obviously change your products and move to a natural shampoo like the Nut Job Peppermint Hair Growth Shampoo. This remarkable product not only ensures the right charge, but also helps to revitalise dormant follicles. 

Also try using less product! Too much product coats the hair too much, and thus leaving excess to fall onto the scalp, or worse, fall out all together.

How do you use spray on hair to cover bald spots?

Bald spots around the crown are very visible from behind and many men feel very self-conscious about it. Particularly young men, for whom this kind of solution is a godsend. It is best to shake fibres into place on the crown as shaking is the best technique for areas that are difficult to see and are generally spread over a larger area. 

Shake Nut Job Hair Fibres over the crown about 8-10 shakes should be enough. Pat the hair down to encourage the fibres to go down the hair shaft, and instantly camo in with your existing hair. Note: even a balding crown has some fine hair on it which the fibres need to cling to.

What if I have alopecia or am totally bald?

Since hair fibres need something to cling to, it can be tricky to cover up a completely bald spot. However, never fear, there is an additional product that can be added to enhance the effect of Nut Job, and that is RootZ brush on hair loss concealer. 

RootZ works by covering the scalp. It will also cling to hair so if there is still some fine hair but not enough for a spray-on or shake-on option, then this is the answer. The good news about RootZ is that it is waterproof, so it is also very good to add in under Nut Job if you are going swimming.
