Let's not beat around the bush here.

Toppik on 31 May 2018

For anyone contemplating hair thickening fibres, the biggest fear is usually that the product won't last for the course of a day or, even worse, that it will trickle or melt down the temples in extreme weather conditions. A lot of men (and women) worry that spray-on hair fibres can't possibly last in the wind or in the rain or while you are sweating.

It's a perfectly understandable fear - no one wants to be left feeling foolish and exposed while the very product that was meant to spare them embarrassment betrays them.

The truth is, many ‘hair thickening products’ are little better than supermarket-grade shampoos with fancy descriptions and low-quality ingredients. No matter how diligently you apply them, you can't be sure that they will stay put like they're supposed to.

The good news? Toppik Hair Fibres are proven to go on and on (much like a Celine Dion song) throughout the day and night. The fibres are colour fast and don't run or stain. They're charged with electrostatic energy which forms a magnetic attraction to your natural hair.

They are designed to remain in your hair regardless of the weather and are safe for use, when used as directed. Toppik hair fibres are virtually identical to your natural hair and basically undetectable from even a close inspection.

To answer the big question, Toppik is designed to stay in your hair until you wash it out with shampoo. It's also possible to maximise its long-lasting effects and create even more resistance to wind, rain and perspiration with our Fiberhold Spray.

But if you're still wondering how exactly Toppik works or why it's more reliable than other products, read on.

Toppik lasts because keratin fibres are magnetically attracted to hair

Toppik hair fibres are made from pure organic keratin protein. This is the same protein that human hair is made of, allowing Toppik hair fibres to blend naturally and seamlessly with your own hair.

People who wear toupées can’t let their guard down for a second in case their hairpiece slips, let alone step outside in gusty winds. Toppik hair fibres form scientifically-proven electrostatic bonds with the individual strands of hair on your head that can resist wind, rain, and sweat. The fibres cling to even the finest vellus hairs under this static electrical charge.

When shaken into a thinning or balding area, Toppik hair fibres are pretty much indistinguishable from real hair, even you're looking for them. They are resistant to wind, rain, and perspiration, and can only be removed through shampooing.

While the cheap fibres used in other hair thickening products aren't resistant to weather and don't offer a natural appearance, Toppik hair fibres allow you to exercise freely and leave the house with thick, natural-looking hair. The main material used in many other hair fibres is cotton - which is highly ineffective as your hair isn't made of cotton!

Toppik Hair Fibres, on the other hand, are made from pure keratin protein (derived from wool), which blends invisibly with your existing hair to provide immediate gratification without a restricted timeframe. The reality is, you can't get Toppik results without Toppik.

Toppik lasts because it's designed to be weather-resistant

The bond between your hair and the ‘positively charged’ Toppik hair fibres is so strong that it will last through wind, rain and perspiration. You can enjoy full confidence that it will endure until your next shampoo, and you can also use Toppik hair fibres alongside other styling products. They even work well with hair transplants.

Of course, the experience is different for every person - we have heard from some people that they use Toppik Hair Fibres while working out and sweating profusely, and it stays in place perfectly. For others, they need to do a quick bathroom mirror check before rejoining the world. Regardless, the important thing to remember is never to comb your hair after applying Toppik products. Style your hair first, then gently shake the fibres on so that they have the best chance to adhere to your existing hair and bond securely.

Otherwise, there's no need to drastically change your hair-styling habits or chain yourself to a hairspray machine just because you're using Toppik. Scientifically speaking, it's the electrostatic bond created due to the natural keratin that makes Toppik Hair Fibres stay in place in rainy, windy or sweaty conditions. The natural keratin contains an innate static charge that causes Toppik hair fibres to cling to the hair on your head, just like actual keratin hair fibres.

This means no matter what activity you're undertaking or what the weather forecast has in store, you can feel confident that your hair will look good through wind, rain or perspiration.

While some companies use synthetic or low-grade keratin hair fibres made from fish bones, nails or hooves to manufacture products, Toppik has found that only premium keratin hair fibres from a natural wool source effectively 'go the distance' in daily life.

Toppik lasts because it's versatile

There are many ways that you can use Toppik hair fibres - from adding fullness to natural hair, filling out thinning edges, covering up a receding hairline, or even concealing hair extension plugs. The range can be used by both men and women, and works on a variety of different hair types; from very coarse to ultra fine. 

Toppik hair fibres are natural enough to blend invisibly with your natural hair yet durable enough not to brush out. There are nine different colours in four size options to choose from - and you can even mix and match them to create your exact colour. Simply pour both colours into a bowl and mix, then pour back into the bottle and apply as normal.

The trick to successfully using Toppik hair fibres is just knowing which tools to use, and how to use them. Here are some handy tips and tricks to ensure you are getting the best use of your Toppik Hair Fibres:

  • If you're planning on using Toppik hair fibres close to your hairline, grab a Toppik Hairline Optimizer. Made of plastic with an irregular teeth pattern, this comb-like tool mimics your actual hairline so you can achieve a natural, even result. It also ensures there are no missed areas along your hairline or forehead.
  • The Toppik Spray Applicator is great to use in combination with the Hairline Optimizer because it helps fill in specific areas of thin or thinning hair. It can also be used on your part-line or to access hard-to-reach places that may need extra attention.
  • The Toppik Hair Perfecting Tool Kit offers an all-in-one solution to make hair thicker. The kit includes a Toppik Hairline Optimizer, a Toppik Spray Applicator and a travel-sized Toppik FiberHold Spray (a must-have if you’re looking for even longer-lasting results).
  • Toppik hair fibres can even be used on eyebrows! To make eyebrows thicker, use the Toppik Spray Applicator to help with a more precise application and to avoid making a mess.
