The fibers are 15 cm long, until 45 cm. Besides straight fibers, there are also tight curl, soft curl and wave. Since the last years it is also available the MHD® hair variant that allows to use 3 hairs with the same graft. Automatic Biofibre® hair implant device allows to implant until 800 Biofibre® hair per hour reducing scalp trauma.
