Two words - complete crap. Stay well away.

the keratin layer surrounding Biofibre? protects the newly-formed follicle from external contamination
Maybe by definition this is correct but how misleading is that? It's shocking that companies still get away with this.

stay the heck away, the hairs are rejected by your body, and you get infections.

Totally agree with the earlier comments. Any foreign body is rejected by your body and will create not only nasty infections, but scarring and possible worsening of baldness due to the infections.

Any sort of fiber hair transplantation is outlawed in most of the world but is currently still legal in Japan, Iran and perhaps still in Italy. I know because we occasionally get patients from these countries that have had the procedure in the past few years.

The reason that it is outlawed is because of the brutality of the results. When these fibers are implanted the body goes into rejection mode, recognizing the fibers as foreign bodies and the process of rejection begins. The areas of implantation become inflamed, red, puffy and eventually infected. Eventually scar tissue forms and then the process begins all over again thus becoming perpetually infected causing the patient to need anti-biotics for as long as the fiber grafts are still in the scalp, sometimes for many years.

I have personally seen some patients come to us with a "helmet" of scar tissue after years of having these fibers in their scalp. It is quite disconcerting to see these eventual results after the body continuously tries to reject the fibers. Below is a video of one such case where the entire front half of the recipient scalp was covered in scars. You can see this by how white the tissue is...
