Hi Dr. Rassman,
Not sure if you’ve heard of any negative feedback about Toppik fibers, but I’ve been using Toppik for approx. 1 month now just to help camouflage the thinning areas. As we know, not all of the fibers adhere themselves to the hair shaft and many will fall to the scalp. I also use hair spray to keep my hair in place. My question is, will the Toppik fibers on my scalp along with the hair spray on top of the fibers, suffocate the existing hair and also will it keep any new hair from growing due to the possibility of clogging the pores on my scalp?
Note: I don’t use much Toppik, but when I should scratch my scalp in the area where I’ve applied the fibers, I’ve noticed the fibers under my finger nails.
Thank you in advance.
Toppik takes time to get completely out of your hair, possibly a number of good hair washes. If you wash regularly, Toppik should not cause you problems. Clogging a hair pore is highly overrated as a cause of hair problems, as the direction of sebum movement is from the inside out. The sebum in effect keeps the foreign particles out of the pores.
