About Miracle Hair
Miracle Hair is a hair loss solution that features super fine micro fibers that bind to each individual hair shaft using a natural electrostatic charge (known as Smart Fiber Technology), causing your hair to instantly become thicker and fuller.
And because Miracle Hair’s bond is so strong, the manufacturer claims that it’s wind, rain, and sweat resistant, and will last all day while remaining virtually undetectable, even up close. As such, Miracle Hair claims to be a top-selling hair loss product that can help you reclaim your confidence.
On top of this, Miracle Hair’s manufacturer claims that it’s made without harsh chemicals or dyes that could potentially harm your scalp and existing hair, and that it won’t stain, smear, or leave behind any messy residue. And when your day comes to an end, simply wash it out with shampoo.
Overall, Miracle Hair claims to have sold more than 1.3 million units of the product, and to be effective for all men and women, regardless of hair type or style.
If you’re one of the 55 million Americans suffering from hair loss, it can be an esteem-busting experience. And in order to help you feel better about your hair loss, you want to know if Miracle Hair works as well as it claims, and if it’s worth the price. To answer these questions (and many more), consider the following:
How Does Miracle Hair’s Smart Fiber Technology Work?
According to the company, Miracle Hair’s fibers are made from plant-based cellulose, an organic compound derived from cotton, instead of synthetic or animal-based fibers used by other companies.
And because your hair is positively charged, while Miracle Hair’s fibers are negatively charged, they attract one another (similar to how 2 magnets of opposite charges will attract). Once this occurs, Miracle Hair’s fibers are claimed to “firmly lock in place” and to leave you with a “natural look.”
However, keep in mind that this method of attaching fibers to your hair is something that most other products in this genre feature, which we’ll talk more about in a moment.
Will Miracle Hair Work for Everyone?
As you might imagine based on the explanation above, in order for Miracle Hair to work, the fibers need something to attach to; e.g. your hair. In other words, the less hair you have, the less surface area is available for Miracle Hair’s fibers to attach, and the less effective it will be.
Because of this, Miracle Hair will not work on parts of your scalp that are completely bald.
How Quickly is Miracle Hair Applied?
Like many other fiber-based hair loss products, Miracle Fiber appears to be easy to apply; simply “Place the bottle over roots or thinning area and gently shake the container in a circular motion until your desired look is achieved.”
However, although Miracle Hair claims their fibers can be applied in just 30 seconds, the reality is that it will likely take you much longer. This might be especially true when you first begin using the product and begin learning the best application methods based on your specific hair loss pattern.
In fact, the application video shown on the Miracle Hair website was one minute long, which was also sped up 2-3X, and was applied by a professional. With this in mind, you’ll almost certainly experience longer application times.
How Long Will Miracle Hair Last?
Although Miracle Hair is claimed to wind, rain, and sweat resistant, and to last all day while remaining virtually undetectable, this may not necessarily be the case. Why?
From an adhesion perspective, by their very nature, fiber-based products like Miracle Hair are designed to come off when exposed to moisture. And however strong their bond may be, these fibers won’t be able to tell the difference between water in the shower and sweat, rain, or even high humidity levels.
Because of this, may consumers have complained that their fibers tended to clump together, fall out, and/or smear when exposed to moisture, leading to some potentially embarrassing situations.
Next, how detectable Miracle Hair will be depends on a variety of factors, the least of which are your balding pattern, level of balding (e.g. completely bald spots versus “peach fuzz”), and hair color. And as we mentioned above, the more hair you have the better coverage Miracle Hair will provide, and Miracle Hair’s 6 different colors may not match everyone’s hair color.
Other Hair Fiber Products
Finally, keep in mind that there are several other fiber-based hair loss products out there, including Caboki, Toppik, Fixplant, and many others. And when you compare each of these products, you’ll find that their formulations are very similar and work essentially identical to one another.
Because hair loss is such a widespread problem, you’ll also find hundreds of other (non-fiber) products available, some of which may work better for you than Miracle Hair. To help you find the right product for you, be sure to read through our Hair Loss Product Buyer’s Guide.
Customer Reviews for Miracle Hair
At the time of our research, the largest concentration of online reviews for Miracle Hair was through Amazon, where the product held an average rating of 3.6 stars (as of 4/17/15) based on 115 customer reviews. There, the most common compliments revolved around even coverage, ease of use, discreetness, and good color matching.
Note: It’s important to mention that many of Miracle Hair’s 4 and 5-star Amazon reviews were posted from accounts where this was their only review (or if they did have more than 1 review, all were posted the same day), which is often an indication that they might be fake.
On the other hand, some of the most common complaints cited Miracle Hair’s messy application process, its tendency to clump, its high noticeability, and the fact it continues to fall out throughout the day, especially when exposed to moisture.

Is Miracle Hair Your “Miracle” Hair Loss Solution?
Chopping to the point: When you get down to it, finding the right hair loss solution is an intensely personal decision, and is highly dependent on your level of hair loss, balding pattern, and many other factors. Because of this, what works well for you might not work well for someone else.
With this said, Miracle Hair seems to have pleased a number of consumers, while being relatively inexpensive and fairly easy to apply.
Ultimately though, Miracle Hair represents a temporary solution to a permanent problem, and your little secret will quickly be found out when visiting the gym, swimming, or when spending time with your special someone. So if you want a permanent solution, you’ll either need to come to grips with your hair loss, or choose to undergo a hair transplant procedure.
