Tips for Matching Your Hair Color Using Hair Fibers

For those with fine, thin hair or areas of hair loss, it may not come as a surprise that hairstyling can sometimes prove challenging. Some of today’s most popular hairstyles for instance, like the pompadour for men and the side-parted bob on women, often work best on those that have fuller, thicker hair.

Luckily, Toppik Hair Building Fibers are the perfect product to help enhance the appearance of thin hair to make it look thicker and fuller. The Hair Fibers do this by adhering to the hair, (even baby hair!) and filling in sparse areas. These Keratin Hair Fibers are easy to apply, and can be either shaken or sprayed into the hair using the Toppik Spray Applicator.

Toppik Hair Fibers are derived from a natural keratin source, and are statically charged to adhere to even the finest human hair. These Fibers have changed the lives of millions of men and women who struggle with fine, thinning hair to those with Alopecia, or those undergoing chemotherapy.

Toppik Hair Fibers come in 9 shades of color and four size options. With so many color options to choose from, you might be wondering how to best pick the Hair Fibers color that will correctly match your hair color.

Color Matching

If it’s your first time using Toppik Hair Fibers, you might not know which color of Hair Fibers will best match your hair color.

To help with this process, we first recommend using the color swatch we’ve created of Toppik Hair Fibers colors, which will give you the best indication as to which specific Hair Fibers color you should be using. We’ve also created the below helpful tips to guide you towards finding the right shade of Hair Fibers that will most closely match your hair color!

Color Matching Tips

Ask someone you trust- while standing in natural light, ask a friend, colleague or someone who’s opinion you trust which color of Toppik Hair Fibers color most closely matches your own natural hair color.

Don’t have someone to ask? Stand in front of a mirror in a well lit area and compare your hair to the colors on our hair color swatch.

For many people though, hair isn’t just one color. Often times the hair on the top of someone’s head receives more sunlight, and can actually be a lighter shade in comparison to the rest of the hair. This is especially true for those who color their hair. And overtime, as the processed color fades or washes out, hair can actually become multi-tonal in color.

So how do you conceal fine, thin, or thinning hair when hair is two-toned or multi-tonal?

Luckily, Toppik Hair Fibers are unique in that they can be combined and mixed together to create unique shades of color. Mixing two or more colors together will also help give fine, thin hair a more natural appearance and texture.

Below are some tips on how we suggest mixing Toppik Hair Fibers to find your exact match!

How to Mix Toppik Hair Fibers for Multi-Tonal Hair Color

There are two ways we suggest mixing Toppik Hair Fibers to match your most ideal shade of color. These two techniques are layering and mixing.

Layering

When using this method of application, you’ll want to layer the colors that most closely match your hair with the help of the Toppik Spray Applicator. Typically, the roots of hair tend to be darker, so the best way to layer Hair Fibers is by spraying the primary darker shade of color first and then layering the lighter secondary shade on top. Once each color of Hair Fibers has been applied, it’s a good idea to finish with Toppik FiberHold Hairspray to seal in the Fibers for blended hold and shine.

Mixing

Another technique to help create the perfect blend of Hair Fibers is to mix the Hair Fibers before applying them to the hair. Mix about ¾ of the lighter color with ¼ of the darker color using either a bowl or an empty Toppik Hair Fibers bottle. One thing to note is that the exact measurements of color will vary depending on the final color that you are trying to create. Once the Hair Fibers colors have been mixed, you can then either apply by shaking the Fibers into hair or by using the Toppik Spray Applicator for an even, precise application.

Here are some examples of how to mix popular highlighted colors:

Salt & Pepper
Shake Black or Dark Brown on hair first, followed by White or Gray using the Spray Applicator.

“My hair is moderately thin, but I really need the extra coverage Toppik provides! I mix blonde and light brown shades to match my ash brown hair color perfectly. It’s quick and easy.” – Sally, Akron, Ohio

“I’ve had thinning hair on the top for a few years. I was very self conscious about it. I’ve been using Toppik Hair Fibers for a couple of years now and found it quick and easy to use. I have reddish brown hair, so I buy the light brown and the auburn and mix them together and they match very nicely. I also like the extra body it gives my hair.” – DS Carsey, Columbus, Ohio

“I have silver and black hair….so I mix the white and light brown. It creates a natural-looking mix of silver and black. Then I use the FiberHold Spray to keep everything in place. The wind does NOT blow away the fibers, unless you are doing 80 mph with the top down.:-)” – Fran E., Clearwater, FL

    Hi Toppik team,
    Do you know what hair fibre color is best suited for Indian hair (from India). It appears black but under sunlight, it shows red tones sometimes. Please advise on which hair fibre color to purchase. Also what is the most bought hair fibre color among indian customers?

    Thanks

  2. Deb

    I have dark brown hair and used the dark brown Toppik as well as black color Toppik (both used separate at different times). However, when gently patting down it turns gray/white, very strange … why does this happen?

    1. Hi Deb, Thank you for your question! We’d actually never seen this issue before so we ran it by our Research & Development team, but they hadn’t come across it in product testing either. So unfortunately, we don’t have a great explanation for you. Would you be willing to return the bottle of Fibers to us so we can take a closer look? If so, please call our customer service team at 1-866-951-1748. Thank you. -Emily, Toppik Hair Care Team

  3. Julie

    I have merlot/wine colored brown hair. None of the color fibers I have mix to match this. Is it possible to ever come out with a new color for those of us with wine hues in our hair?

    1. Thanks for your question. Toppik Hair Fibers in Auburn might suit you. But you can also blend two or more Fibers colors together to match almost any hair color. In your case, try blending Auburn with Light Brown or Dark Brown Fibers. Thank you.

    The lt blonde I use looks very green. I can’t use it. I purchased It Brown and using that, though dark for my bio color. But better than bald spots.

    Why is the lt blonde green

  6. I have tried both the medium brown and the light brown. Both seem to have way too much green after application. It looks ridiculous. Has a reason been found for this?

    I have been using your product for a couple of years. But sometimes it looks green. Why is there so much green fibers added ?
    Thanks

    I professionally have my hair colored. Right now I use the Medium Brown fibers and it matches well. However I’d like to change to a dark red color. I don’t know what color fibers to mix, to achieve that color?

  10. Michelle

    Hello,
    I love Toppik. My hair is getting so thin on top the older I get. I’ve been using light brown and can’t believe the transformation after applying it. I get very emotional once I see no more bald spots. This product has been a life saver. My question is my mother has red hair and gets it professionally colored. Which shade would be best for her thinning hair???
