If you’re suffering from minimal to severe hair loss or thinning, you might want to consider wearing a human hair topper.

We are aware that some people are hesitant to use hair toppers and ask, ‘do hair toppers damage your hair?’. The short is no! Hair toppers are completely safe for your hair and can give you voluminous, gorgeous hair in no time.

We’d love to share with you all the dos and don’ts of applying hair toppers so you can have the best hair topper experience.

What Are Hair Toppers?

A hair topper is a hairpiece that clips to specific areas of your existing area to disguise thinning patches. While a wig covers your whole head, a hair topper only covers a section of your hair. They are extremely breathable and are typically more affordable than a wig as there is less material.

Hair toppers provide maximum volume, fullness, and thickness and are designed to blend seamlessly with your natural hair.

So should you wear a synthetic or human hair topper? Opt for a human hair topper for the most natural finish and more versatility when it comes to styling and coloring. Synthetic hair toppers don’t give the silky appearance we all desire, and they don’t last as long.

Benefits of Hair Toppers

Do you feel like you’ve run out of options for making your thin hair thick again? Don’t worry because hair toppers offer enormous benefits.

  1. Since they are applied with easy-to-use clips, they can be taken on and off whenever you want.
  2. They are extremely light so you may even forget it’s even on.
  3. Hair toppers are available in a variety of colors and styles so you can find the perfect match for your natural hair.
  4. You can leave out your natural hair and blend it with your hair topper so you still feel like yourself.

How to Properly Wear a Hair Topper

Are hair toppers comfortable? Can hair toppers cause hair loss? These are very common questions that you might have before buying a hair topper, but this fear may be holding you back from achieving the hair of your dreams.

Luckily, applying hair toppers correctly is easy! Follow these tips to ensure your hair topper doesn’t damage your hair and looks and feels fantastic.

Buy a high-quality hair topper

Invest in a high-quality hair topper made out of human hair to achieve the most natural look and feel. A poor-quality hair topper may put unwanted pressure on your hair and appear obvious.

Be gentle

When applying your hair topper, be gentle so you don’t damage your natural hair. If you feel pressure on your natural hair, stop and try a new approach.

When you take the hair topper, go slow and gentle to prevent breakage. People who are experiencing hair loss have very delicate hair, so be extra cautious when removing the topper.

Make sure your hair topper fits

If you have hair loss or thinning, make sure the hair topper fits over the entire targeted areas and extends over healthier hair. This way your hair topper won’t damage your hair because you aren’t clipping it into already thin hair.

Add an inch

When measuring the area where you are losing hair, add one inch to each measurement on your head. This will guarantee that your hair topper reaches your healthy hair.

Give your hair breaks

We recommend letting your natural hair breathe at night, especially if you wear your hair topper more frequently. Give your hair a break and let it recuperate. The constant pressure from your hair topper may cause damage to your natural hair.

Can You Always Wear a Hair Topper?

These hair pieces are perfect to wear year-round! You can wear your hair topper daily to give your hair complete coverage and volume regardless of the weather. A high-quality hair topper can provide years of beautiful wear with the proper care.
