Caboki and How does it work?
Caboki is a fibrous substance which sticks to the existing hair and appearing them thicker. Caboki fibers are made from Gossypium Herbaceum plant. The fibers of Caboki carry a negative electrical charge. Human hair carries a positive charge. So the fibers attach with the hair through normal electromagnetic forces. When you add Caboki in the thinning area of the hair, the fibers automatically adhere to the hair like tiny magnets. Each thin area of your hair immediately becomes thicker as well as fuller, eliminating those thinning areas. As natural coloring agents are used to dye the fibers of Caboki, it shows similar color to human hair.
Toppik and How does it work?
Toppik is a hair building fiber and it blends unnoticeably with the existing hair. It is a shake-on hair loss product, with tiny micro-fiber prepared from organic keratin protein. A pepper or salt shaker like applicator is used to distribute the fibers to the thin area of your hair. The fibers contain a static charge which helps them to adhere to the hair and giving an appearance of thicker hair.
