Don't worry, because in this lively guide, we're diving into the art of pampering your human hair topper. Get ready to learn the ins and outs of how to take care of your human hair topper and keeping it in top shape!

How often should I wash my human hair topper? 

When it comes to washing your human hair topper, think of it like a delicate flower – not too often, but not neglected either! Around every three weeks or so should do the trick, but really, it's all about tuning into your topper's needs. If it starts feeling a bit grubby or loses its luster, that's your cue to give it a good cleanse. Remember, your topper isn't part of your scalp, so it won't be producing oils like your natural hair. By washing it sparingly, you're helping to maintain its pristine condition and ensure it stays fabulous for longer. So, listen to your topper, pamper it when needed, and let it shine!

How do I wash my human hair topper? 

  • 1. Gentle Shampooing: Start by using a tiny amount of shampoo, just enough to create a light lather. Gently massage it into the strands of your human hair topper, ensuring it's thoroughly distributed.

  • 2. Rinsing with Care: Rinse the shampoo out with lukewarm water, making sure to remove all traces of product. Take your time to ensure every bit of shampoo is washed away.

  • 3. Air Dry Naturally: Instead of rough towel drying or heat styling, opt for air drying. Lay your topper flat or hang it up to dry naturally. This gentle approach helps maintain the softness and integrity of the hair.

  • 4. Parting Perfection: Before your topper dries completely, use a pin tail comb to create your desired part. Whether it's a sleek center part or a flirty side sweep, this step ensures your part stays put as the topper dries.

  • 5. Enjoy the Fabulous Results: Once your topper is dry and styled to perfection, it's time to rock your look with confidence! Embrace the natural beauty of your topper and enjoy the compliments that come your way.

My topper is looking a bit flat, how do I give it more life? 

If your topper is looking a bit flat, don't fret – it happens to the best of us. Whether it's arrived a tad squished in the package, seen a bit too much wear, or has been stored in a snug spot, there's a quick fix to perk it right up.

Here's what to do: grab a spray bottle filled with water and give the top of your topper a gentle misting. We're talking just enough to make it slightly damp, not drenched. Now, here's where the magic happens – take your trusty pintail comb and brush upwards from the roots. This simple technique instantly adds volume and oomph to your topper, giving it that fresh-from-the-salon bounce.

So there you have it, a quick and easy way to revive your topper and give it the life it deserves. With a little water and a flick of your comb, you'll have your topper looking fabulous in no time! Watch the video below to see how we do it:

What is the correct way to store my human hair topper?

When it comes to keeping your topper in tip-top shape, there are a couple of options to choose from.

Firstly, if you've got your hands on one of those luxurious anti-frizz satin bags, like the ones from Kammi Hair, consider yourself in luck! Pop your topper into one of these beauties, ensuring it's nestled snugly inside. Not only does this keep your topper safe from dust and frizz-inducing elements, but it also adds a touch of elegance to your storage game.

Now, if you've treated yourself to a topper stand – you've done well! Simply perch your topper atop its stand, letting it bask in all its glory. Not only does this keep its shape intact, but it also doubles as a chic display piece.
