"Hi. My name is Noelle and I have thin hair." "Hi Noelle!" I know you've guys have heard this before but as we all know, I have thin hair. I know you guys have seen me try out various shampoos, conditioners and hair treatments before but most of those have results that aren't necessarily fast or instant - and who doesn't like instant results, am I right?

Lately, I've been trying out the Toppik Hair Building Fibers as well as the Toppik Colored Hair Thickener. They both achieve somewhat of the same results but in different ways. Let's get to it!

So first, we have the Toppik Hair Building Fibers (in dark brown). Remember, you should always match the fiber shade to your root color because that's where you'll be putting the product. The building fibers themselves are made of all-natural, keratin protein that blend into your hair to give it the look of full, thick, natural hair.

To apply, start off with completely dry hair. You can either sprinkle the fibers straight from the container to the thinning areas but it can get a little messy. I like to use the Toppik Spray Applicator for a more precise application instead.

To use the Spray Applicator (which took about a half an hour to figure because I refused to look at the directions), simply unscrew the cap and then pull of the sifter. Legit, I was convinced it would not come off but it eventually did! Then screw on the applicator and you're good to go! Spray away, babe!

(I can assure you it's not normally this awkward-looking. Unless you, too, take pictures of you using it.)

I feel like this is optional, but you can also insert the teeth from the Toppik Hairline Optimizer into the hairline for a more realistic look. It's basically a hair stencil but works well if you have thin hair near your forehead.

After you've applied the fibers, gently pat your hair to disperse the fibers and then finish with the Toppik FiberHold Spray. This spray basically keeps it put (even in rain, wind and sweat!) and strengthens the bond between your hair and the fibers. Think of it as a special hairspray for the fibers.

Before / After (but before patting to disperse the fibers)

If you don't want to use fibers, you can also use the Toppik Colored Hair Thickener. This spray a dry, colored powder into your hair to fill in any thin areas - kind of like a colored dry shampoo! 

Start with completely dry hair. Because my hair is more thin on the sides, I like to lift my hair right above my ears and spray there about 4-6" away from my head. After it's applied, you can style your hair or reapply for more volume. 

Overall: If you're looking for thick hair - fast - I highly recommend this! Keep in mind that this does not permanently change or put any help towards long-term results with thick hair. That being said, I'm okay with that. I personally like both options when it comes to choosing to use the spray or fibers. The spray, to me, is just like a colored dry shampoo which I'm used to. The fibers are a little bit more realistic if you have a lot of thinning. Both wash out in the shower. Which would you use?
