Hair toppers are a popular solution to cover hair loss, root regrowth or just add a little extra volume where you need it most. So exactly how long do they last? This depends on a few main factors:
What fiber it's made of
Human hair toppers often have a longer lifespan than synthetic toppers . Most synthetic toppers last anywhere from 3 to 6 months, depending on daily wear and care, whereas most human hair toppers can last up to a year. Human hair/heatfriendly synthetic blend toppers fall somewhere in between, and since heat friendly fibers tend to frizz faster than regular synthetic fibers, this is why they typically won't last as long as a 100% human hair topper.
How often you wear it
A topper worn only on special occasions or rotated with other hairpieces will outlive a topper that's worn every day.
How you take care of it
How a hairpiece is cared for is the biggest determining factor on how long it'll last. If you handle it based on manufacturer instructions and use care/styling products formulated for that particular fiber, you'll be able to keep it looking it's best for as long as possible.
