Toppik – A Handy Hair Loss Helper

We get lots of FAQ’s from interested Toppik shoppers so we thought we’d post the most popular questions and answers here! Consider this your one-stop Toppik snapshot.

Can Toppik be used by men and women?
Yes, it’s great for both men and women. Sweet!
 
How does Toppik work?
The Toppik tiny microfiber “hairs” are electro-statically charged to form a magnetic attraction with your existing hair – however thin – and blend perfectly to conceal the appearance of thinning and balding in seconds. Think of it as a quick concealer for those ‘oh no, my scalp is showing’ spots.
 
Will Toppik match my hair color?
With eight, color-matched fiber choices available, you can conceal thinning hair from snow white to jet black and every shade in between. Toppik is available in Black, Dark Brown, Medium Brown, Light Brown, Auburn, Blond, Grey and White. Feel free to mix and match two or more colors if you want to capture the lights and darks of your natural hair color. Our most popular combo is Light Brown and Medium Brown used together. See the next question for a color combining tip.

I have salt and pepper hair. How should I use Toppik for best results?
Use white Toppik fibers in combination with either black, dark brown or medium brown. Apply the white fibers first and then “pepper” in the darker color. It will blend perfectly and capture the different tones of your natural hair color.

How do I apply Toppik?
A few shakes of Toppik above your thinning areas will disperse thousands of tiny hair-like fibers that will match your existing hair color, and bond with your own hair to conceal thinning and create a more natural looking, thicker, fuller head of hair. These tiny sprinkles really cover quickly too, you don’t need much to make a big difference in the appearance of your thinning area. Check out this video too.
 
How long does Toppik stay on?
The secure bond stays put all day (and night) even in rain, wind, you name it – it won’t come off until you wash it out. Toppik fibers will never run, smear or stain, and are proven to withstand wind, rain, and even perspiration. Seriously, it really stays put.
 
Will people know I’m wearing Toppik?
Toppik fibers look like natural hair particles and stay secure and undetectable as close as two inches away. People will notice you and your smiling face instead of your showing scalp.
 
What size does Toppik come in?
Toppik comes in 4 sizes perfect for your individual needs:

Giant – A 150 day supply. The best value and the best-selling, most popular size.
Economy – A 75 day supply.
Regular – A 30 day supply.
Travel – This smaller size is ideal for taking your “full head of hair” with you while you travel. It’s also great for on-the-go touch ups too. If you are new to the to the brand, or cannot decide on your color, pick up one or two of the travel sizes to give it a test on your own thinning areas.
 
How do I apply Toppik to my front hair line?
In frontal areas, spread your thumb and forefinger and place your hand on the top of the forehead below the hairline to keep stray fibers from falling onto forehead and eyes. For the best application on frontal areas we suggest using Toppik Hairline Optimizer.
 
How can I get better results with Toppik?
You may lightly apply Toppik FiberHold Spray to lock the fibers into place and to provide added durability and a finished touch.
 
How can I get a more natural look?
You can dramatically improve your results by using the Toppik Spray Maximizer and Toppik Hairline Optimizer. These precision instruments allow you to precisely spray on Toppik and enhance your hairline. You will immediately see an even more natural look.
 
What if I get Toppik fibers on my clothes or pillow?
The fibers are 100% colorfast and cannot possibly run or stain. If fibers do get on any surface, immediately just dust them right off with your hand and they’ll disappear.
 
Is Toppik compatible with hair growth drugs?
Yes, Toppik is totally compatible with hair growth drugs like Minoxidil and Propecia.
 
Does Toppik affect hair growth?
No, Toppik fibers can neither help nor interfere with normal hair growth in any way. How do I use Toppik and Minoxidil at the same time?  Apply Minoxidil (or any topical treatment) first and then apply Toppik. At night just apply Minoxidil. While wearing Toppik – a little may come off on your hand from the alcohol contained in the Minoxidil solution.
 
Can Toppik be used after surgery?
Some physicians advise their hair restoration patients to use such products to enhance the look of fullness in their transplanted areas. These products can also be used after surgery to hide the immediate surgery.

What is Toppik FiberHold Spray?
Toppik FiberHold Spray is the perfect accompaniment to Toppik Hair Building Fibers. This fine mist was specifically developed to increase the bond between Toppik Fibers and your thinning hairs. Unlike ordinary hair sprays, this formula uses sophisticated alpha grade resins to join thinner hair and Toppik fibers naturally and durably, so they stay put all day long.
 
How do I use Toppik FiberHold Spray?
Spray on after using Toppik Hair Building Fibers for a secure, long-lasting hold. May be brushed lightly after drying for a softer look.

Toppik Hairline Optimizer is the ultimate way to get the best results from Toppik. Sometimes it can be difficult to achieve a natural looking front hair line.

Iron Deficiency and Hair Loss

The hair care industry is a billion dollar industry. A perm, relaxer or color ranges in price from $65 to over $100 and most women get their hair retouched every 2-3 months. That’s a lot of money spent per year!

The models that grace the pages of magazines and on television commercials shaking their heads to show off their fabulous locks is one of the major reasons that the industry is doing so well. Women want to look their best and will find any means to do so. Why wouldn’t anyone want to look fabulous! We see our favorite celebrities do it so why not us?

However, there is one area of the hair industry that is not publicized as much, and that is hair loss in women, which has become very common in many women. This can be an incredibly devastating experience for many women. The loss of hair can lead to feelings of embarrassment and shame.

A three-year study of women suffering from loss of hair in the late 1990’s had identified iron deficiency as the cause of hair loss in 72% of pre-menopausal women. This loss of iron could lead to anemia. But women should not wait for their doctor to diagnose them with having anemia (defined as too little iron in the blood). They should focus on maintaining a healthy diet.

Here are some recommendations:

Try to get your recommended daily iron intake. Some women with iron deficiency have experienced many strands and sometimes handfuls of hair going down the drain when washing their hair and they were not pregnant (note: pregnancy can sometimes cause premature loss of hair).

So, your best bet is to avoid these nightmarish experiences and increase your iron intake on a daily basis. Make sure your diet contains enough meat, fish, eggs, cereals, peas and beans. Try eating more dried fruits, legumes and dark leafy greens, which are very high in iron content.

If you are experiencing hair loss, contact your doctor immediately. If you are taking any medications your doctor should be able to determine if this may be the cause.

There are many factors which can cause hair loss, iron deficiency is only one of them.
