Are you a man with thinning hair? You’re not alone. Hair loss affects over 50 million men in the United States. In fact, by the age of 35, two-thirds of men have some type of hair loss and by the age of 50, that number has jumped to 85%.
While some men embrace their hair loss, many would like to maintain the appearance of a full head of hair. Luckily, Toppik Hair Building Fibers offer the ability to do just that! Keep reading for one man’s story of using Hair Building Fibers.
Thom’s Hair Loss Story
For most of his adult life, Thom had thick hair and didn’t worry about thinning. But once he reached his mid-50’s, the hair on the top of his head began to thin. “At first, it wasn’t too noticeable, but eventually it progressed to the point where you could see my scalp in various spots because the hair was so thin,” Thom told Toppik.
Oftentimes, men with hair loss choose to shave their head. However, Thom’s hairdresser advised him not to shave his head, since the look wouldn’t be flattering for him. Traditional medical treatments like Propecia and Rogaine were also not an option for him, as his doctor had advised him against using these medications because of a previous cancer diagnosis. He attempted to hide his thinning hair by combing it in different ways, but he still wasn’t happy with the way that his hair looked.
Thom’s First Experience with Toppik
When Thom saw an ad on TV to try Toppik Hair Building Fibers, he jumped at the chance to have instantly fuller-looking hair. Toppik’s hairstylists styled Thom’s hair using Hair Building Fibers, then he went to dinner with his grandson afterwards.
His grandson said, “Grandpa, your hair looks great!” and that the Hair Building Fibers made him look younger. Thom was also very impressed with the fibers, and now he uses them every time he goes out of the house.
How Thom Uses Toppik Hair Building Fibers
After a couple of tries, Thom is now an expert at styling his hair with Hair Building Fibers. Since Thom has salt and pepper hair, he uses several shades of Hair Building Fibers to match his hair color. First, he applies gray to the top of his head using the sifter top, then he layers on dark brown. “I have more dark on the top and the sides are very gray, so I can blend those two together pretty good, with the filling in,” he says. He then uses the Spray Applicator with the Hairline Optimizer to fill in his hairline.
In Thom’s experience, Toppik Hair Building Fibers are very resilient. He doesn’t need to reapply on days he doesn’t wash his hair “Whatever I have in stays from shower to shower,” he says. Thom has also noticed that Hair Building Fibers stay in his hair in the wind, in light rain, and during exercise.
Thom Recommends Hair Building Fibers
While ecstatic with the results, Thom doesn’t tell just everyone about Hair Building Fibers. “I don’t volunteer it unless it’s somebody who I really know and have a sense that they would benefit from it,” he says. But he has many great things to say about his experience his with Toppik. “I think it’s a wonderful idea that somebody came up with and has made having full hair very convenient.”
