Problems with Toppik Hair Building Fibers?

Toppik Hair Fibres move when too many fibres are applied. When Toppik Hair Fibres are applied to the scalp, the keratin protein forms a bond with the hair strand locking them in place. If there are too many fibres and the hair is too thin, then there is very little the Toppik Hair Fibres can bond with. Excess fibres with no-where to bond to will move freely.

This can be alleviated in two ways; the first method is by simply using less Toppik Hair Fibres! This will in turn allow the Toppik Hair Fibres to bond correctly.

The second and more efficient method is by using the Toppik Fibrehold Spray. The main reason for this may be that your hair could be extremely thin and in turn the Toppik Hair Fibres may not have much to bond with. Toppik Fibrehold Spray keeps the fibres in place, working as a sort of static based glue for your Toppik Fibres.

The Toppik Hair Fiber clumping is usually due to applying the fibres on wet hair. Your hair is a lot more stable when it is dry as it expands when it is wet. Toppik Hair Fibers were scientifically developed for dry hair. When your hair is wet and expanded, the Toppik Hair Fibres will still join to the hair follicle, but as the hair follicle dries it begins to contract and become smaller due to the water dissolving from within the follicle. Although it is not enough for you to notice it is enough to really put pressure on the keratin bonds. This will quite literally snap the Toppik Hair Fibres, as there are too many bonds in a small space and no-where for the Toppik Hair Fibres to retain their individual bonds.

This is not the case when you place Toppik Hair Fibres on dry hair, as even if it were to get wet in the future it would expand with the bonds already in place before contracting and not affecting the bonds overall integrity.

Another reason Toppik Hair Fibres may be clumping, is due to having purchased the Toppik Hair Fibres products on eBay or Amazon. This may sound absurd, but many of these large eCommerce sites have difficulty controlling which products are fake or real. You could be purchasing fake products made of cotton, rayon or plant based materials. These products will not bond to the hair in the same way as genuine Toppik Hair Fibers.

Many modern homes in the UK tend to have little or no ventilation in the bathroom. This means that when you take a warm shower or bath a lot of condensation builds up on mirrors and windows within your bathroom. This condensation can cause the Toppik Spray Applicator to become jammed. When it comes to unblocking your Toppik Spray Applicator, you need to be very careful as not to break the applicator its-self.

Firstly, try to rinse the applicator through with some lukewarm water. This should allow the Toppik Hair Fibers to be forced out of the applicator. If not, it should at least loosen the position of the fibres for the next steps. Once you have given the Toppik Spray Applicator a rinse, allow it to dry completely before use in a room temperature environment.

Secondly, if the first step was not enough to unblock the clogged shaft then try purchasing a pipe cleaner and gently inserting it through the shaft of the Toppik Spray Applicator. This should  push any of the fibres out of the end of the applicator and clean any residue off the inner walls. Once you have used the pipe cleaner, allow the Spray applicator some time to soak in lukewarm water once again. Finally, allow the Toppik Spray Applicator to dry once again.

The best way to combat this is by simply moving the Toppik Spray Applicator out of the bathroom or into a cabinet. This eliminates the whole condensation problem and allows the Toppik Spray Applicator to run smoothly.

COUVRe

COUVRe is a very effective product for both aesthetic and health reasons. It works a lot like Toppik Hair Fibres, in the way that it masks your hair and give it the appearance of being thicker and fuller. COUVRe products are a natural mix of organic moisturisers, iron oxides and natural colorants. This means that the products are not only amazing for your hair, but they will also benefit the overall colour of your hair, defending against grey hairs. 

COUVRe does not encourage nor discourage hair growth, which means it is a neutral and purely aesthetic. Toppik.co.uk does not claim that COUVRe gives any major hair growth benefits to the consumer but there is the colouring and moisturising properties. The moisturising properties can help hair health and the colouring agents can help prevent against grey hairs. So yes, there are a certain set of health benefits for hair but they do help or aid hair growth in anyway.
