We have all seen the adverts on the television for products that promise to help you improve the thickness of your hair, but what if there really are products out that that could actually help those people who are suffering from thinning hair? Well there are, and they have been shown to be rather affective.
Toppik and COUVRe
These are two of the most popular products available which do achieve good results. They both work in different ways; Toppik is a product that is applied to the hair and COUVRe is applied directly to the scalp – it is a colour application
Toppik produces almost immediate affects as it works to make the hair appear thicker, whilst COUVRe reduced the appearance of noticeable scalp under the hair itself. Those people who have thinner hair often use both products at the same time in order to achieve a better overall result. Both products come in a variety of different colours to allow you to pick the one that is the closest match to your own hair colour.
This product uses “micro-fibres”, they bind to the natural hair and give it the appearance of being thicker. These fibres are made of Keratin, the same proteins that make up natural hair. They mesh with the hair in such a way that is almost impossible to see that something has been done. The result is instantaneous, thicker natural looking hair.
It is incredibly easy to apply. Either blow or towel dry the hair and then simply hold the Toppik around 3-6 inches above the are that needs attention, and shake. There is no need to worry about fibres that fall onto the wrong area, using a plastic bristled brush to style your hair and patting your hair will disperse fibres evenly.
This is also easy to apply, simply comb the hair away from the are you wish to treat rub it in firmly and blend onto your natural hair. Then you can style as you would normally. Whilst COUVRe can be applied to hair that is either dry or damp and is resistant to water it can be removed from the hair using your normal shampoo. It is best used on a daily basis for optimum results.
COUVRe is popular with those people who have had hair transplants, it helps to give them a fuller looking thicker head of hair immediately after surgery. It is safe to apply directly on the scalp.
Before using any of these treatments, it is wise to get advice from a hair loss specialist, especially if you’re looking to use one straight after surgery. Why not call us here at the Wimpole Clinic to get advice tailored to your specific needs?
