Styling products (other than hairspray) should be applied to the hair prior to applying Toppik Hair Building Fibers. Applying gels, mousses, pastes, serums, and the like after applying Fibers may cause shifting the Fibers and could expose the areas that were meant to be covered. Let styling products dry before applying Fibers.
