Q. What is Toppik made of?
A. Toppik Fibers are made up of pure, organic keratin protein, just like all human hair. They are charged with a precise level of electrostatic energy in order to form the maximum magnetic attraction to your thinnest hair. There are no harmful chemicals or additives whatsoever.
Q. Can I mix different colors of Toppik?
A. Colors can absolutely be mixed. In fact, it is often encouraged in order to find the perfect color match for your hair; especially when working with blonde or grey hair. The product can either be mixed directly on the head (apply one of the colors, usually the darker shade first, and then the other color over it) or you can mix two colors in an empty bottle to customize a color before application.
Q. Can Toppik cover gray or root re-growth?
A. Toppik is a great way to cover both gray and root re-growth! It is an easy, effective way to cosmetically cover up both problems and will help to lengthen the life of your color.
Q. Can I use Toppik with other styling products?
A. Toppik can be used with any other styling products. It is important to remember to put styling products (other than hairspray) in the hair prior to applying Toppik. Applying gels, mousses, pastes, serums, etc. after applying Toppik could risk shifting the Fibers and exposing the areas that want to be covered. Make sure to let the styling products dry before applying Toppik.
Q. Should I use styling products before or after Toppik Fibers?
A. It is recommended that styling products (other than hairspray) should be applied to the hair prior to applying Toppik. Applying gels, mousses, pastes, serums, etc. after applying Toppik could risk shifting the Fibers and exposing the areas that want to be covered. Make sure to let the styling products dry before applying Toppik.
Q. Can I use Toppik with a hairdryer/flat iron/curling iron?

Q. Can I apply Toppik to wet hair?
A. Toppik must be applied to dry hair. If Toppik is applied to wet hair the Fibers will not adhere to the existing hair and will clump together. So, for best results, make sure your hair is dry before using our product.
Q. Do I need to use hairspray?
A. Hairspray is recommended as it will help lock the Fibers to your hair. Toppik Fiber Hold Spray is specifically formulated to work with the Fibers and gives an added hold as well as shine. It is advised to stay away from any aerosol hairsprays because the pressure from the spray may shift the Fibers.
Q. Will Toppik come off on my clothes/pillow/etc.?

Q. If I am bald can I use Toppik?
A. Unfortunately, Toppik is ineffective on individuals with no hair. Toppik works by adhering to existing hair on the head and is most effective when used in conjunction with thin or thinning hair. So, without some existing hair, the Fibers will not stay in and the product cannot achieve the desired results.
Q. Will Toppik clog my pores?
A. Toppik will not clog pores nor will it dry out the scalp. Toppik Fibers are made of keratin protein, the exact same protein that makes up human hair. Due to this proximity to actual human hair, Toppik is completely safe and will not have any unwanted reactions such as clogging of the pores.
