Do toppik hair building fibers work?

Mel Cooley asks… Would the Beauty Brains recommend buying Toppik Hair Building Fibers for my slightly hair-impaired significant other?

The Right Brain responds:

Well Melanie, thanks for your question. Whether or not you want to be with the kind of guy who covers up his bald spot is up to you. But we can clue you in on the technology behind Toppik.

Toppik Hair Building Fibers. Yeah, right.

The hype on this one is a bit hard to swallow. Here’s what Amazon.com says:

The best hair loss concealer on the market. Toppik fibers are restructured to merge undetectably with your hair when applied. It is a safe, natural way to eliminate the appearance of baldness and thinning hair. It’s not a spray, cream or cover-up. In fact, it’s so scientifically advanced that it is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. Toppik is an amazing new complex of tiny, microfiber “hairs” that perfectly blend with your hair. Toppik fibers are made of the same organic Keratin protein as your own hair. Through a unique process, these fibers are restructured to merge undetectably with your hair. You will instantly see a fuller, more natural looking head of hair than you could ever imagine.

Surprise: Toppik really works!

Surprisingly, Toppik fibers really do work. It’s really kind of amazing how well they fill in and disguise a small balding area. And they even look pretty natural (assuming your guy can match his hair color, of course.) Even more surprising, the fibers actually stay in place during the course of the day. The only serious negative that we observed in our Beauty Brains test on random slightly balding males, was that if they got their hair wet (or even sweated too much) the color could smear. And of course, they’d have to reapply the product every day, which gets expensive.

How does it work?

The product is a fine powder made of the following ingredients: Keratin, Ammonium Chloride, Silica, DMDM Hydantion, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate. It may also contain yellow, red blue, and orange colorants to create different shades of hair. The formula is blended with just the right mix of keratin and silica to give you small hair-like fibers that adhere to the real thing. That means it works best when there’s at least a few scalp hairs to cling to. If you just smear this on a totally bald scalp it won’t give the same effect.

The Beauty Brains bottom line

If your man is looking for a quick cover up for a thinning spot of hair, we’d recommend trying this product.

What do YOU think? Would you rather be with a guy who is “au naturale” with his hair impairment or would you like to be with someone who fakes it? Leave a hairy comment for the rest of the Beauty Brains community.

    If women can apply tons of makeup every day, plastic surgery and million other god knows what faking things to enhance/fake their beauty .. why cant guys do one or two?

    The question is do you want to live in a neutral, equal right gender society or radical feminist society

      A guy: I can’t wait to see if our female readers respond to this. Thanks for the comment.

    this is great stuff for women’s hair loss as well. If a guy is upset about his thinning locks then he should try this. An easy, fast fix! No one can tell.

    Baldness does not bother me one bit. There are so many things more interesting about a person than their hair. I am not attracted to someone because of their hair, a person’s character is how I determine who I spend my time with.

    do the fibres fall off from head ????

    • Perry Romanowski January 9, 2018, 10:33 am

      They are designed to stay on the head. But yeah, some of them probably fall off.

    Will the fibers actually make my hair grow?

  • Sebastian January 8, 2020, 7:16 pm

    I have no problems with my thinning hair on day to day basis. However, it’s nice to know I can make my hair look fuller if I ever feel like it. It’s not about being ashamed by baldness, it’s about having choices. Why not? It’s easy, and it works well.

    My daughter bought me Toppik for Mother’s Day last year. I was upset because my hair was thinning so much on top, that my bright pink scalp was glowing through my “comb-over”. I LOVE TOPPIK!❤️ Lasts from one shampoo to the next. Just bought 3 more!
