Does Toppik Hair Fiber Really Make Thinning Hair Look Thicker?
One commonly-marketed hair loss option available to consumers is to apply micro-fibers from a tube to give the “natural” appearance of thicker hair. The Toppik brand provides users with a keratin-based powder that physically binds to hair follicles and can last up to two days if the user does not bathe. Toppik works when positively charged particles attach to the negatively charged hair fibers, and the static attraction keeps the product bound to the scalp. However, some hair is necessary for this type of product to be effective at all. People who suffer from areas with complete baldness do not gain any benefit from using this product, and users report online that the product only works for thinning hair. Furthermore, the Toppik is expensive and needs to be applied once daily, if not more.
The manufacturer offers Toppik as a “game-changer” for hair, and although it is innovative, it doesn’t affect everyone in the same way that it is advertised. Frustrated customers have swarmed Amazon reviews to voice their frustrations at paying over 40 dollars for a bottle “slightly larger than my thumb.” Other users found that the shade of black did not match their black hair, and others were disappointed to see that the company offers a confusing return policy, with a $50 restocking fee on some of their products. To return the products, customers must call a toll free number and request a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA) form to include on their shipping label. Otherwise, the shipment will be returned to the sender. That being said, some people with ideal hair conditions found success using Toppik.
For many people, the risks of using products like Toppik are clear: it may not work for all hair loss types and seems to be a temporary fix to what is usually a permanent issue.
