Toppik Hair Building Fibers are an amazing solution for instantly creating the appearance of thicker, fuller hair. While they aren’t permanent hair fibers, they are long-lasting. If applied correctly, Toppik Hair Fibers will stay in the hair until you shampoo again.
However, we get a lot of questions about how long hair fibers last, so we asked these Toppik users to share their experiences with us. So if you’ve been wondering how long do hair fibers last, keep reading to find out how Toppik Fibers hold up in different everyday situations.
How Long Do Fibers Last On Hair?
Q: Do Toppik Fibers Last Through Weather Like Wind and Rain?
A: Wind is no match for Toppik Hair Building Fibers! Thanks to the famous Santa Ana winds, Southern California is notoriously windy in the winter. But Toppik user and Californian Thom hasn’t had any issue! “I’ve been in pretty strong winds… It doesn’t seem to affect it,” he told the Toppik team.
The same goes for rain. Toppik Hair Fibers are resistant to precipitation. “I’ve been in wind and in rain. Nothing has moved. It stays in your hair,” said Toppik user Linda. Steve Q. agreed: “I got caught in the rain a week or so ago, and it did not affect it whatsoever. It stayed natural looking and I was very pleased and surprised with the results. Reviewer Jamie had the same experience: “Hot weather, cold weather, rain, snow — it does not matter.”
Q: Do Toppik Fibers Last Overnight?
A: No time to apply Toppik Hair Building Fibers in the morning? Not a problem. Toppik Fibers will stay in your hair overnight with only a minimal need for touch-ups in the morning. “If I use it today, and I don’t wash my hair until two days later, it stays in,” said Thom. He added, “Normally, whatever I have in stays from shower to shower.”
Toppik user Belle told us, “I was surprised when I woke up the next day that I still had hair.” Adam agreed, “Unless you wash your hair every day, it will totally stay in.”
Q: Will Toppik Fibers Get On My Pillow?
A: If you plan to wear Fibers overnight, will they get on your pillow? That hasn’t been the experience for these Toppik users, who were able to sleep in Toppik Fibers without getting them on their bedding.
“I was trying to think about would it be a problem if Toppik stayed in overnight and would it get everywhere? And I slept with it fully in my hair. Nothing on the pillow,” said Bobak.
Adam told us, “I went to the bed and I checked the pillow, there was nothing on the pillow.”
Q: Will Toppik Fibers Get on My Clothes?
A: Many people are concerned that Toppik Fibers are messy, and will fall onto your face and clothing during application and throughout the day. Not so! These Toppik users haven’t had any issues with getting Fibers on their clothes.
“It doesn’t come out on your clothes, it doesn’t get on your pillow. It stays in until you wash your hair,” Adriana told us. Belle agreed, “And it doesn’t get all over your face. It doesn’t get on your clothes. It’s not on my pillows.”
Q: Does Toppik Run When Sweating?
A: Another commonly asked question about Toppik Fibers is whether or not they will sweat out during exercise. These Toppik users have worn Fibers through all sorts of exercise, and haven’t had any issues.
Bobak told us, “I always thought that because I’m a big sweater that Toppik might come out running down my face, but [that’s] never the issue. I always even touch my sweat and it’s just water. It’s not like dark or it’s not colored or anything. No problems at all.”
Diane had a similar experience when she went line dancing with her husband: “…I had my cowboy hat on and I was sweating. I took my cowboy hat off. And my Toppik was still in place. And my hair looked marvelous.”
Reviewer Lance agrees: “After sweating all night under stage lighting, it’s still holding firm the afternoon of the next day.”
A frequent exerciser, Keilan worried that Toppik wouldn’t last through his workout. “I thought if I worked out, it would bleed or run after a while. …I can go into the gym confidently without a hat and without worrying about going in there with a full head of hair and coming out with balding spots.”
How to Make Hair Fibers Stick
To maximize your results, follow these steps:
1. Dry or style hair as usual. Then shake Toppik Hair Building Fibers onto thinning areas.
2. Gently pat hair to disperse Hair Fibers. If desired, lightly comb, brush, or style hair after applying.
3. For longer-lasting results, follow with the Toppik FiberHold Spray. FiberHold Spray strengthens the magnetic bond between Toppik Hair Building Fibers and hair strands for even longer-lasting results. Plus, it adds a healthy-looking shine.
4. For more precise application, use the Spray Applicator attachment.
5. For a natural-looking application along the hairline, use the Hairline Optimizer.
