Miracle Hair is a shake-on application that claims to contain “hair building” fibers to make your thinning hair thicker in just a few seconds. They tout it’s not made with any harsh chemicals or dyes and it will instantly cover any bald spots and restore any confidence you may have lost in the way you look.
How Miracle Hair Works
Miracle Hair touts it uses “Smart Fiber Technology” to create an appearance of lots of hair follicles where there are very few. They state this happens because Miracle Hair contains thousands of tiny microfibers made from plant-based cellulose that will bond to existing hair strands (due to electrostatic charge) making them look thicker.
They promise Miracle Hair is sweat, rain, and wind resistant, yet easily washes out with shampoo and leaves no messy residue. They insist Miracle Hair works for all types of hair and ethnicities, as long as you have at least a tiny bit for it to grab on to and are not completely bald.
To use Miracle Hair they instruct you to give a few shakes to the area you want covered and pat your head. They state this will spread the Miracle Hair fibers and you will be ready to meet and greet within 60 seconds and coverage will last all day.
Miracle Hair Cost:
$24.95 for a 30-day supply; $34.95 for 75 days, and $59.95 for 150 – plus $5.95 shipping. There is also a VIP Membership, which will give you a 30-day supply every month and you will be billed $19.95 each time. Miracle Hair comes in 6 colors and they strongly recommend choosing one that is a shade darker than your natural color.
Miracle Hair includes a 60-day money back guarantee and they say you can even return an empty bottle for a full refund, minus shipping charges. You may also cancel the VIP Membership at any time.
Bottom Line: Will Miracle Hair Cover My Bald Spot?
We sympathize with men who have thinning hair or are prematurely bald; society has made a stigma out of a completely natural condition that is difficult to overcome. The promise of a few shakes of Miracle Hair to make you appear younger is indeed tempting.
Miracle Hair claims to have sold over a million bottles and currently has a 3.6 star rating on Amazon. However, the most helpful critical review remarked that many of these seem to be fake or by people affiliated with the product.
We did find a couple of guys doing a video segment they call The Two Minute Reviews who took it for what appeared to be an unbiased test. One of the young men does indeed have dark thinning hair, so in the video he has his buddy sprinkle Miracle Hair on top of his head.
In their demonstration, Miracle Hair does seem to work! BUT –
It also made a fine charcoal-like coating his scalp; however, this may have been due (as they note) to the fact that too much Miracle Hair was applied. In fact, you can see as he first starts to sprinkle Miracle Hair, that it appears to thicken even before they notice it.
Which brings us to the bottom line: this is a visual illusion that works best for the cameras or for onstage performers that you view from a distance. That’s why many Hollywood makeup artists have a similar product Toppik in their kits. Once you get up close, the illusion is quickly gone.
In other words, if you are going to be appearing on TV or in the family photo and you’d like the appearance of a little more hair, this may do the trick. If you are going for a job interview or on a first date, you run the risk of someone staring at your scalp.
