Hair toppers are a great option for women with thinning hair as it instantly conceals and covers specific areas on the top of the scalp that are thinning or partially balding. Additionally, they provide plenty of volume and density to your natural hair provided it is blended properly.
With hair toppers in particular, it is best to choose a color that is closest to your natural hair color given that they only cover part of your hair. That said, there are bigger hair toppers that cover more of the scalp and in the end, it’s always down to one’s personal preference and how they would like their hair to look.
Similar to a wig or toupee or hairpiece, you can use glue or tape to attach your hair topper on your hair loss area whether it is a thinning crown or the top of your head. Using either will allow the hair system to stay flat on your scalp compared to toppers that are attached with clips.
Just like any other hair system, you should use a wig shampoo or wig conditioner or any other that is designed for hairpieces when washing your hair topper.
As far as caring and maintaining the hair topper is concerned, make sure to clean it at least every other week if not once a week. If you’re not using your hair topper, take it off and store it on a stand or mannequin, but make sure to avoid exposure to sunlight. Following these steps will help prolong your hair topper’s lifespan.
This depends on your needs and lifestyle. A hair topper is more suitable for you if you have thinning or balding hair only in certain areas such as the crown of the head or if you want to add more density and volume to your hair in general. They are more lightweight and affordable than wigs which are meant to cover the entire head as opposed to certain areas.
