When it comes to hair loss many people will look into different hair restoration treatments or ways to disguise the hair loss for a period of time. We’ve spoken previously about different hair restoration treatments as well as different hair concealers, today, we’re looking into hair toppers – what they are and how they work.
A hair topper, sometimes known as a half wig or top piece, is a hairpiece that usually only covers the top portion of the head. A hair topper can vary in size depending on the coverage you need. A hair topper is similar to a wig, just smaller and is used to disguise hair loss and is suitable for both men and women.
A hair topper works by offering partial coverage, making them the perfect solution for people who have gradual hair loss or thinning hair. Hair toppers are not an option for those with complete hair loss as a hair topper needs to match the colour and texture of your hair in order for the topper to look natural.
The hair topper can be attached to your own hair with clips and can also be bonded to the scalp with glue or tape – this does require more work, however, it is a more permanent solution. Sometimes those with thinning spots or sensitive scalps cannot wear clips because they are too uncomfortable. It is important to remember that using less expensive clips can damage the hair that you have and it’s important to ensure your topper is applied correctly to minimise any damage to your hair.
