Topper hair pieces are used to disguise thinning hair and to give thinner hair volume. It is perfect for those who have hair loss but who do not need a full wig. You can still have your natural hair with the volume and coverage you want. Just like with a wig there are some things you need to know before you buy. So, we are here to help and have the top tips you need to know when choosing topper hair pieces.
Stage of Hair Loss
When choosing a topper hair piece you first of all need to consider and look at which stage of hair loss you are in. There are three stages and there are toppers designed for each stage:
Beginning Stage which is very mild
Mid/Progressive Stage which is when hair loss becomes more noticeable
Advanced Stage which is when you have a lot of hair loss
Area of Hair Loss
After you have thought about which stage you are in, you need to determine the area of hair loss. The areas where hair loss occurs are:
The front of the hair or where you have a fringe
The crown which is at the back of your head
At the part which is along the top of your head
Throughout which is all over the top area of your head
So, have a look at your hair loss and see where it is occurring the most, this is the area you need to measure.
Measuring the Area
When measuring the area of hair loss your measurement should begin and end where you have some natural hair. This is because the hair needs to be able to support the topper. It needs to be able to hold the weight of both the hair of the topper and the topper itself. By clipping the topper to a good amount of natural hair you will avoid more hair loss because the hair can support the weight. Once you have found where you have the most hair, measure the front to back, then side to side. You can use these measurements to keep track of hair loss too. This can be of use because hair loss can progress so you can write down your measurements and ensure you are still using the right topper. Hair loss patterns can change so it is important to keep track. It is recommended that you check every six months.
Once you have figured out which stage you are in, decided which area of hair loss you have and measured the area you are ready to choose your topper.
