A hair topper is a common hair accessory that is worn to give thinning or balding hair more volume and length. While many individuals are concerned that it might harm their natural hair. In this essay, we’ll look at the possible harm that hair toppers could do to your hair or scalp and explore how to stop it from happening.
To begin, it’s critical to understand how hair toppers work. A hair topper is a hairpiece that is intended to blend in with your natural hair. It is usually clipped or taped to the scalp and can be removed and reattached as needed. The topper’s hair can be synthetic or human hair, and it is usually styled and cut to match the wearer’s hair texture and color. The truth is that hair toppers do not cause hair damage. They are intended to be worn over existing hair without the use of adhesives or clips that could cause harm. The way hair toppers are installed and maintained, on the other hand, can have an effect on natural hair.
What hair toppers damage your hair?
One potential issue with wearing a hair topper is that the clips or tape used to attach it to the scalp can cause damage to the hair and scalp over time. Too tight clips or tape can pull on the hair, causing it to break or become damaged. In some cases, this can result in hair loss, thinning, or even bald spots.
Another concern is that the use of hair toppers can prevent the scalp from being able to breathe properly. Wearing a topper that is too large for your hair loss pattern may trap heat and moisture against your scalp.
Wearing a hair topper will irritate or inflame the scalp also has something to do with clips. This is due to the possibility that the tape or clips of low quality used to secure the topper may rub against the scalp and generate friction, which may result in redness, irritation, and even damage to the hair follicles.
