Fibers are known to be the best additive material in concrete when it comes to the increment in properties like flexural strength, tensile strength, etc. This paper gives a brief about the work done with two fibers i.e human hair and coconut coir fiber in the concrete to make an increment in the mechanical properties of concrete. The fibers are taken in the same ratio for the addition in the concrete. The ratios introduced in the concrete were 1%, 1.5%, and 2%. From all, the addition maximum increment was found with 1.5% which was 17% in the mechanical properties of concrete.
