My Caboki Hair Review (2019) – Scam Or Legit?

My Caboki Hair Review (2019) - Scam Or Legit?

 

It’s time for my Caboki Hair review – because it’s a really interesting hair product:

  • hides and masks bald spots
  • conceals thinning hair
  • gives the impression of fullness

Basically – it’s not a hair loss remedy, but an aesthetic solution.

So does it really work even for that? Or it’s just another scam?

I tried to dig deep into Caboki and find out the whether it’s worth the shot or not.

Note: This review is based on my own opinion + research on Caboki.

 

So Let’s Get To The Review

Full Name: Hair Loss Concealer from Caboki

Sizes: There are 3 major versions:

  1. Travel size (0.21 oz) for 8-14 days
  2. Caboki 16 gram (0.56 oz) for 25-40 days
  3. Caboki 30 gram (1.06 oz) for 50-90 days

They also offer a volume control mist and an alopecia concealer (plus other minor products).

You can also buy several together as value packs.

Best Actual Prices: Starting from $9 (for the lowest size)

Cheapest Place To Buy: Caboki’s official website (better prices than on Amazon)

Designed For: Hiding hair loss and bald spots.

According to its website:

  • it clings to your hair like magnets
  • thus making it look fuller and thicker

However, it’s not a hair growth solution – it doesn’t decrease shedding or thinning.

My Rating: 8 out of 10It’s a great product

Worth Buying?: As an aesthetic solution, yes.

It’s a really valuable product for the price.

However – I don’t recommend it as a hair loss/growth solution:

  • doesn’t decrease shedding
  • not effective for growing hair faster
  • only a “hide baldness” remedy

My personal recommendation is a $25 supplement that made miracles for my own hair.

 

What I Liked About It

  • Formula based on herbs and natural ingredients
  • No synthetic compounds
  • Really easy to apply (1-2 minutes)
  • Doesn’t need to be removed overnight (until washing your hair)
  • Results are visible instantly
  • Really good price overall
  • Free sample available for the first order

 

What I Didn’t Like About It

  • Only an aesthetic solution
  • Doesn’t increase hair growth at all
  • Not effective on bald scalps
  • Can worsen hair loss in some people (according to reviews)
  • Hard to apply at first

 

 


What Is Caboki? A Quick Overview


Shortly – it’s a product designed to hide thin hair or bald spots on your scalp.

  • It comes as hair fibers (powder) that need to be applied on the scalp.
  • They are invisible from the outside
  • They make your hair look like it’s fuller (no bald spots)

The results? Instantly thicker hair – or an illusion actually.

However, all hair fibers can do that. So what makes Caboki more special?

  1. Natural formula (most have chemical based compounds)
  2. Lasts longer on hair (2-3 days or more)
  3. Free sample offered if requested
  4. Does not stain at all (according to its claims)

Basically – it has a few advantages over its competitors.

That’s a main reason why it’s one of my top recommended hair fibers.

However, it’s not a miraculous solution – it’s not even a solution actually:

  • does not decrease or improve hair loss
  • not effective for growing new hairs
  • does not grow hair faster

Plus – Caboki fibers can only hide your bald spots if you actually have enough hair.

They’re completely useless on a scalp that is over 50% bald (look like dust).

So now that you know the main things about them, it’s time to analyze them closer.

 


#1 – Ingredients (9 out of 10)


Caboki has a different formula from most hair loss concealers (in the good way):

  • based on natural ingredients
  • free of synthetic dyes and preservatives
  • fibers taken from plants

So that’s a major reason why I praise its formula.

According to its official website – it contains fibers extracted from 2 sources:

  1. Moroccan Gossypium Herbaceum – it’s a variety of cotton that only grows in Morocco.
  2. Natural Minerals – the colorants inside them give the fibers’ color (to match your hair color).

Now – ingredients probably don’t tell you a lot in this case.

But since there are no synthetic compounds – I think this formula is really promising.


Conclusion

Out of all hair fibers I reviewed, Caboki probably has the best ingredients:

  • formula made of natural compounds
  • free of dyes and preservatives

In terms of strength, it might not be the most long lasting product.

But when it comes to formula – I would rate it on top.

 

 


#2 – Smell & Texture (9 out of 10)


All Caboki’s products have a nice consistency – and that includes their scent as well.


1. Smell

Unlike other hair fibers – these one is scent-free at first:

  • no chemical smell
  • very light fragrance

Basically, you can feel some smell – but it’s too light for most people to notice it.

I would also add that the smell is very natural, meaning that you can’t associate it with a certain thing.

So don’t worry. People won’t notice Caboki fibers after their smell.


2. Texture

Though they have a different source, Caboki’s fibers look like any other hair fibers:

  • powder with very fine particles
  • doesn’t irritate the scalp/skin
  • comes in different colors

Basically – the fibers have the same proprieties, except for the color.

You can pick that according your your hair shade (choose the one that matches it best).

But in terms of consistency, Caboki’s fibers are quite regular.

 


#3 – How To Use It (10 out of 10)


Good news here. Caboki offers clear directions on how you should apply all their products.

So here’s how to use the fibers:

  1. Make sure your hair is dry.
  2. Apply the fibers by shaking the bottle onto the areas of your scalp that you want to look fuller.
  3. Use your fingers to spread the powder.
  4. Make sure you do it gently.
  5. Brush your hair, if it’s necessary.
  6. Use a hairspray to keep the powder in place.

Now – for the last step, Caboki recommends using their Volume Control Mist.

But if you don’t have it, any hairspray would do. So it’s not necessary to get their volume product as well.

Other than that, there’s a unique feature I liked about Caboki.

It doesn’t have to be removed overnight (as it happens with many other brands):

  • you can leave it on while sleeping
  • the powder doesn’t stain (according to them)
  • it washes off when you shampoo your hair
  • you don’t need any special products to remove it

So basically – you can apply the fibers after blow drying your hair and let them sit until the next wash.

There’s no need to remove them in the meantime.

In case some of the powder falls off, you can apply some extra.

But normally – it should stay in place until the next wash.

 


#4 – Results (8 out of 10)


I never actually tried Caboki’s fibers myself, so I can’t share my experience with them.

My hair loss was more general and it mostly affected my ends.

So my roots were perfectly fine – thick and strong. That’s why hair fibers could not help me at all.

However, I looked into all the opinions I could fins about Caboki’s fibers. So here are the results.

Note: I only considered authentic reviews, not promotional ones.

1. What People Say

Caboki’s fibers have an average of 4.3 stars on Amazon (out of 5).

There are 236 reviews there at this point – which is a lot.

So over 75% of their users were satisfied, which tells a lot about these products.

Now – here’s what most people say in their reviews:

  1. Some claim they are the best hair fibers they have ever used.
  2. Others compare them with Toppik and Cuvva, saying Caboki is better.
  3. A few praise their consistency.
  4. Some others say they stay in place until washed.
  5. Many say the fibers manage to hide their baldness within minutes.
  6. Obviously, there are some complaints as well.
  7. Some people say the fibers have a poor quality and high price.

To be honest – it’s completely normal that a product cannot satisfy every single user.

But as more than 75% customers gave it 5 stars, I doubt Caboki is a bad product.

2. Biggest Complaints

Most negative reviews I found were related to:

  1. Bad consistency (sticks to the scalp, not to the hair)
  2. High price
  3. Poor quality overall
  4. Not as good as in the ads
  5. Can increase actual hair loss

Basically – many users had a hard time applying the fibers properly (though it looked really easy in ads, according to them).

I haven’t tried Caboki myself, so I can’t tell.

But I’m convinced the negative reviews are real. So Caboki isn’t such amazing for everyone.


Conclusion

These fibers have a huge per cent of positive reviews – so they are effective.

However, you can also find enough complaints.

Plus – Caboki and other hair fibers aren’t an actual treatment for hair loss/growth.

They work great if you want a fast aesthetic solution.

But if you’re looking for a product that stops your shedding and promotes growth – I strongly recommend you a $25 supplement.

It made real miracles for my hair (and they last until today).

 

 


#5 – Price (9 out of 10)


In my opinion – this is one of Caboki’s strongest points.

They might not be the cheapest hair fibers you can find.

But they’re surely cheaper than most of the quality brands.

1. The Exact Price

Caboki’s official website has the best prices overall:

  1. Travel size version costs $8.95.
  2. 16 gram version costs $19.95.
  3. 30 gram version costs $34.95.
  4. Volume control mist costs $10 per bottle.
  5. Alopecia concealer costs $31.95.

So in my opinion, these prices are actually decent for the quantity.

Don’t forget that were’re talking about some professional hair fibers, made of natural ingredients.

Now – you can also get the products grouped in packs:

  1. Caboki Started Kit ($39.95): 30 gram version + Volume control mist
  2. Value Pack 1 ($69.95): 2 x 30 gram version + Volume control mist
  3. Value Pack 2 ($99.95): 3 x 30 gram version + Volume control mist
  4. Caboki With Atomizer ($23.95): 16 gram version + Atomizer

Other than that, there’s Value Pack 3 and 4.

They offer 4 or 5 Caboki 30 gram versions (without Volume Control Mist).

So they’re more of a several months supply at a discounted price.

Additionally – there’s an auto-shipping program for US customers:

  • free shipping
  • up to 45% savings overall

You should also know that Caboki offers a free sample for $2.95 (these are shipping taxes actually).

It’s enough for 5-10 days and lets you see how the product works before actually ordering it.

2. Worth It Or Not?

If you ask me, Caboki’s fibers are definitely worth it.

And if you don’t trust me – you can order a free sample and pay only the shipping taxes.

In this way, you can test the product for a couple of days and see if it’s suitable for your hair or not.

Now – if you’re looking for a hair loss solution, it’s not worth it:

  • doesn’t decrease shedding
  • not effective as a hair growth boost

In this case – supplements are the best solution, for an ever lower price.

But if you’re interested in a fast aesthetic solution – Caboki is one of my top recommendations.

 


#6 – Where To Find It (10 out of 10)


Fortunately, Caboki’s fibers are available in many retailers – including:

  • Amazon
  • Ebay
  • Other cosmetic retailers
  • Online pharmacies

However, my top recommendation remains its official website:

  1. Lowest prices overall (with sales very often).
  2. You can buy several monthly supplies at one (with a discount).
  3. More products available than on Amazon.
  4. You can get a free sample for your first order.
  5. There’s an auto-shipping program.

Now – if Amazon is the most comfortable option for you, you can also get Caboki from there.

Bur if you want to get the best price, choose the official website.

It’s a better choice on the long term.

 


#7 – FAQs


Next up – I will try to answer the top questions you might have about these fibers.

Note: I might repeat something I already mentioned, but it’s easier to spot here.

1. How often you should apply it?

According to the directions – once every 2-3 days.

The fibers are designed to stay in the hair until the next wash.

So there’s no need to apply the product daily or remove it at night.

2. How long lasts one bottle?

It depends on the sizing you choose:

  • travel size lasts 8-14 days
  • 16 gram size lasts 25-40 days
  • 30 gram size lasts 50-90 days
3. Can I use it while taking other drugs/supplements?

Definitely – as Caboki isn’t an actual drug, there’s no risk of interaction with something else.

Plus, you only apply it on your scalp. So it can’t possibly affect your body.

4. Are there any side effects?

I found a few previous customers complaining about:

  • rashes and skin irritation
  • increased hair loss
  • itchy scalp

Out of these, it’s the worsened hair loss that seems the most severe.

But don’t worry – side effects aren’t very common in hair fibers, so you’re quite safe.

5. How fast should I notice a change?

Immediately after applying the product. 

That’s one of the best things about hair fibers – you can see the difference within minutes.

6. How long it takes the apply the product?

It might take a little longer until you get used to it.

But normally – it shouldn’t take more than 1-2 minutes, which makes it super comfortable.

7. Is it water and wind resistant?

According to its official website – the fibers bond to the actual hair.

This means they’re not going to fall out during wind or rain – not even if you wash your hair (unless with shampoo).

 

 


#8 – Final Conclusions


Here’s how I would sum up my opinion on Caboki fibers (in 3 ideas).

#1 – Natural Ingredients

Actually – it’s one of the few brands I know with this kind of formula:

  • fibers extracted from cotton plant and minerals
  • no additives and preservatives
  • herbal ingredients

So if you’re interested in organic products, Caboki is the closest (among hair fibers).

#2 – Works Instantly

That’s a major advantage of this kind of products:

  • you can apply them in 1-2 minutes
  • results are visible instantly

Plus – Caboki lasts longer than most hair fibers.

You don’t need to remove them at night – only when you wash your hair.

#3 – Not A Hair Loss Remedy

That’s something crucial to keep in mind.

Hair fibers only have an aesthetic purpose – they can’t improve hair loss at all.

In fact – some users claim they actually worsen it a bit.

But these are mostly rumors. And most users never experience changes in hair loss.

 


My Verdict – Is Caboki A Scam?


Short answer: Definitely not – it’s a great product.

Actually, it’s one of my top recommendations when it comes to hair fibers:

  1. One of the few based on natural ingredients.
  2. Lasts longer than most (until the next wash).
  3. Good price for the quality.
  4. You can get a free first sample (enough for 8-14 days).

Now – it’s not the very best product in terms of effect (according to customer reviews).

But I would definitely rate it as one of the best.

However, I don’t recommend it in several cases:

  • You have a completely bald scalp
  • You want to grow your hair faster
  • As a hair loss remedy

Basically – it doesn’t decrease hair shedding at all. It can actually worsen it (but only in rare cases).

So if you’re looking for the best product for hair loss/growth – my advice is to go for a supplement called Folexin:

  • lowest price among all quality products
  • excellent formula overall
  • works pretty fast (2-3 months, sometimes even 1)
  • treats the actual cause of hair loss, not just the symptoms

I’m actually using this product on a constant basis and I don’t know anything better.

That’s the main reason why it’s my top pick for anything that involves shedding or hair growth.

8 thoughts on “My Caboki Hair Review (2019) – Scam Or Legit?

  1. Does this work for a bald scalp? My husband is 80% bald and nothing he used has ever helped. We stopped looking for a cure but he would at least like to make it less visible. Some hair fibers say they don’t work for baldness, is this one different? Thanks!

    1. Hey Barbs, unfortunately none of the existing hair fibers works for baldness. They can hide an early form, but if your husband’s scalp is 80% bald – there’s no chance that they help. Hair fibers are some sort of powder, so they look decent on a head with at least 60% hair. But on bald scalps they don’t manage to hide anything – instead, they look pretty badly.

      So whether your husband tries Caboki or another brand – it’s not going to help.

      Now – in most cases, male baldness is caused by DHT excess. That’s why I recommend supplements that block DHT – so they stop the baldness. Profollica and Procerin are the best examples among my top recommendations. There are also classic treatments, like Minoxidil and Finasteride, which are both FDA approved. But they come with way more side effects than supplements, that’s why I’m not their biggest fan.

      However, no supplement or drugs manages to grow hair on a bald scalp – at least it wasn’t clinically proven. That’s because once hair follicles die, it’s really hard to revive them. Some men claim they got their hair back using a supplement called Follixin, but I can’t guarantee for that (I tried it out and it worked, but I never had any bald spot).

      So I don’t really know what advice I could give to your husband. Since he’s almost completely bald, it’s kind of late to find something that will make miracles. But as I said, he could try.

      Sorry I can’t give you any good news but I prefer to be honest than give you fake expectations.

  2. Hi Olly – Great article on Caboki. Do you know if this stains? I saw you don’t have to take it off every night, which is awesome but I’m worried it might stain my pillow and bed. I have dark hair so I will probably go for a dark brown. 

    Also could you recommend a quality hair supplement? I would love to get Folexin but they wouldn’t ship in my country… Anything else I could get for a good price?

    1. Hey Maria. I haven’t used Caboki fibers myself, as I never had any bald spots. But I read plenty of reviews and many people mentioned the fibers don’t stain at all. Actually, it was a pretty common question in its Amazon section – you can check it out too.

      So I think you’re pretty safe when it comes to this. Even choosing the darkest color shouldn’t leave any marks on your pillow. I personally think that if the fibers stained, the label would recommend washing them off every night. But since it says you can leave them on, it’s quite obvious they don’t stain. I can’t 100% guarantee, but that’s what I read.

      As for hair supplement – here’s a list with my top recommended products. If you can’t get Folexin due to shipping issues, I recommend a supplement from Nuzena instead (you can find it on that list). It’s a few dollars more but you can pay in installments, which is definitely a great advantage. Also, they ship to every country – so this won’t be an issue anymore.

      But you can find some other supplements on my list, so you have where to choose from.

      I really hop this helps.

  3. This is the best fiber product I have used! I have a bad thinning caused by a thyroid condition and the doctor recommended fibers until my hair recovers. I’ve been using Toppik in the past because it was really convenient buying from Amazon but it did cost me a lot. Caboki is cheaper but I don’t have to wash my hair every night before going to bed just to remove the product. That’s what I had to do with Toppik and another brand I used before, I can’t recall the name.

    Thanks for your review, I would definitely recommend these hair fibers. Best ones on the market!

    1. Hi Nina, thanks a lot for sharing your experience with Caboki hair fibers. I’m glad to hear you’re so happy with them. They have some major advantages, for sure. Toppik is actually more popular and it has a slightly better formula – but if you don’t care about that, I agree that Caboki is a better choice (in terms of resistance).

      Thanks again for your feedback, hopefully your hair gets better after your thyroid treatment.

  4. Hi Olly. I’m a regular user of hair fibers and have tried most brands of the market. I heard of Caboki but didn’t actually give it a shot until I read your article. I ordered this product in black and I’ve been using it for almost a week, I actually love it, it’s better than Toppik and it’s actually cheaper. I used to think Toppik was the best because everyone was using it but now I’m going to be making my supply of Caboki, I can keep it overnight without staining my pillow and that’s great. I’m going to be saving some extra time in the morning not having to apply the fibers daily.

    One last question, I know fibers aren’t really helpful for hair loss, so what product would be? I cannot swallow pills so supplements are out of the question. I don’t have a bald scalp just thin hair, which makes my scalp visible from certain angles. Do you think there’s still hope for me or I should resign to the idea of using hair fibers for the rest of my life? 

    1. Hey Clara, I’m really sorry to hear about your hair struggles. From your description, I can’t really tell what lies behind your hair loss – if you can give me some more details, that would be really helpful.

      Regarding Caboki’s fibers – I’m glad to hear they’re helpful, but you’re right, in terms of effect they don’t do anything. They’re only a temporary solution meant to hide the thinning. So you need something else if you want to actually treat the problem.

      As I said, it’s hard to recommend you something because I don’t know the actual cause of your thinning. So if you could give me more details, I might be able to help more.

      Anyway, here’s what I can tell you.

      1) You said you cannot swallow pills. That’s such a shame, because supplements have by far the best effect for hair loss/growth. But there are some other solutions as well.

      2) Certain shampoos can help with shedding/thinning. My top recommendation is a product from DS Laboratories, because it’s extremely professional (compared to other shampoos on the market). It’s also a bit pricey, but if you can afford it, I seriously recommend it.

      3) You might want to try laser devices, which are meant to regrow hair and fight thinning. As your scalp isn’t completely bald, you’re a good candidate for laser therapy. Some of these devices have lots of positive reviews, so they clearly work (many reviews are from people partially bald, that’s why I think they would help you).

      The only downside is that laser therapy is quite expensive. A device costs about $600 on an average, so it’s some kind of investment. But once you buy one, it should last for years.

      Now – I don’t recommend spending a lot of money on a laser device over $1000. 

      Actually, my top recommended laser product costs $250 and it’s made by HairMax (probably the leading brand in laser devices).

      I recommend it because it does the same thing as $1000 products but costs way less. The only thing is that you have to use it about 5-10 minutes more, but the frequency is the same (3 times a week). Also, it takes the same time until it starts working just like expensive devices.

      So Instead of spending a small fortune in a professional laser device, I definitely recommend that one instead. I don’t think $250 is such a big amount of money – plus that it also comes with a 2 years warranty, so you have plenty of time to see if it works or not (and get your money back if it doesn’t).

      Please let me know if you decide to use any of these solution and whether it helps or not in the future. I hope this helps you.
