Hair Toppers FAQs
● What is a hair topper?
A hair topper for women is a small piece of material made from lace or polyurethane attached to the head, onto which hair is knotted. It’s a specific type of women’s wig, which is smaller than those that cover the whole head. This type of hair topper is specifically for women who have thinning hair on the crown. They are usually attached with clips, but they can also be glued onto a shaved scalp if hair loss is extreme.
Lordhair has an extensive range of hair toppers with free and fast shipping.
● Do hair toppers cause hair loss?
Hair toppers have not been known to cause hair loss if used correctly. Hair loss is the condition from which one is suffering before deciding to wear a hair topper, and is the reason for wearing one. If you do not carefully unclip your hair, you may risk damage to your remaining strands and this causes pull on them. If you brush hair straight and orderly before clipping on, and unclip your hair topper correctly when you want to remove it, there will not be any excess damage to further deteriorate hair condition.
If you glue your hair topper on, it is advised by Lordhair to do so on a shaved scalp, this allows for the cleanest application that does not cause hair loss, because you have shaved on hairs, there will be no pull on stands of hair.

When wearing a topper, it does not cover the whole head so you may need to brush hair in a way to ensure that it covers the hair topper correctly.

● Do hair toppers hurt?
No, hair toppers do not hurt if used correctly. They are clipped on and off, and sometimes glued on for women with extreme hair loss. A hair topper is smaller and lighter than a full-sized wig and so is not as heavy as a wig.

● How does a hair topper work?
In simple terms, a hair topper is a piece of material that has strands of human hair carefully tied onto it, which is subsequently attached to the crown with clips (is clipped onto existing hairs) or glue (hair is shaved). They look just like real hair that comes from one’s head and stay in place whilst going about all daily activities if glued on. If they are clipped on, they are usually removed from showering and swimming.
When it comes to hair toppers for women, there are usually 3 options you will likely see being used
● Clip-on hair topper
● Hair topper with a shaved crown and taped/glued on to the scalp
● Hair topper that’s glued onto a non-shaved crown, directly onto the hair (NOT a method endorsed by Lordhair)
The last option is not recommended by Lordhair because as hair grows out, your topper is glued to those hairs and could start to move around. This is not the case for shaved scalps because if hair grow by a few millimeters, they grow separate from ever having been glued. If you did not shave your hair, hair that already has glue on it grows, meaning the hair topper is now attached to an area of hair that has grown out, which means it is more prone to moving about on the head.
● Can you sleep in a hair topper?
Yes, you can sleep in a hair topper. A women’s hair topper, if glued on to the head can be slept in, however it is advisable to use a silk pillowcase to prevent pull on hair and subsequent hair fall out. If using clips on a hair topper, it is easier and safer to simply unclip it and sleep without it at night!
● Is a hair topper permanent?
A hair topper is semi-permanent. It can be used for up to a year depending on the base material. It is semi-permanent because the hair topper has elements classed at permanent and elements classes as non-permanent.
- A hair topper is NOT disposable; a hair topper total lifetime can be up to a year.
- A hair topper is worn continuously, if glued, for a month, and then cleaned and refitted.
- A hair topper can be worn, if glued, whilst doing all daily activities including showering and sleeping.
- A hair topper can be removed from the scalp at any time (with some debonder).
- A hair topper, if clipped on, can be removed everyday by unclipping it.

Don’t want to shave your head but want something permanent? Try a women’s integration wig!
● Should I choose a women’s integration wig or a hair topper?
A women’s hair topper is a good idea if you have hair thinning that is extreme and you feel comfortable in shaving your head to fit your hair topper on to sleep and shower. If you have a reasonable amount of original (bio) hair left, then you can look at an integration wig, in which hair is pulled through holes in the wig. You can also sleep and shower in such a wig, but you do not have to remove your remaining sparse hairs on your head.
For the least “investment” a hair topper with clips may be the best option. You can clip on and off each day. However, this option does not allow you to swim, shower or sleep. This can help extend the life of the hair topper, yet you will have to remove it in certain settings. Additionally, many women prefer the close fit of a hair topper with glue, or a women’s integrated wig. The choice depends on your lifestyle!
