Frequently Asked Questions
In our topper collection, there are two different base types for you to choose. They are Mono base and Silk base. Base material is one of the important factors when choosing a topper. In order to choose the most appropriate one, you need to know the characteristics and the differences between them.
Firstly , let’s look at Mono. Mono base is more durable than Swiss Lace base, so for people who worry about the durability of your hair topper, we recommend you the Mono base toppers.
Secondly, we have Silk base toppers. Silk base is famous for its soft,light,easy-to-attach characteristics and it mimics your own scalp which means it can be the most natural one when you wear it compared to the other two. But at the same time it is not breathable as lace and mono.
In all, comparisons between theses three bases from different aspects are shown below:
Breathability: Mono Base > Silk Base
Scalp Imitation Degree: Silk Base > Mono Base
Cost Performance: Mono Base >Silk Base
Recommendation Level: Mono Base > Silk Base

When you know what budget you’ll be working with, you’ll easily be able to determine whether or not you can go with a stock topper or a custom topper.

You may color, tone, or bleach your toppers, because they are 100% human hair. But we do not recommend bleaching your Lily Hair toppers as they have already been dyed at our manufacture, and forcing bleach on hair that has already been dyed can be difficult.
If you truly want to bleach your toppers, please consider our virgin hair with natural color and not color-treated before. If you would like to dye your hair, please opt for a lighter one to dye darker, rather than a darker one to bleach lighter.
And please be reminded that never try to dye the topper yourself at home. Get yourself a professional hair colorist, ideally, someone who has had previous experience working with toppers.
Our toppers can last from 1 year to 2 years, it all depends on the way how you take care of them and how often you use them. The way they are cared for would largely decide the life-span of your toppers.
Your toppers are different from your own growing hair—they have no roots and unable to constantly get oil moisture from the scalp, so there’s no need for you to wash them very often—wash them everyday is absolutely a big no-no!
Wash your topper every 2–3 times a week is advisable or wash them when they look dirty, lifeless, have product build up or smell. Be sure to deep condition your topper after each wash.
This largely depends on how often you wear them. You can probably use your best judgement in how often to wash them. Try not wash your toppers often, because unlike your natural hair, these toppers will not collect the natural oil from your scalp.
If you are still unsure how often you should wash your toppers, then please wash your toppers 2–3 times a week or wash them when they look dirty, lifeless, have product build up or smell. Wash your toppers with the 100% sulfate-free shampoo that’s specially designed for toppers. This is the most effective and mildest way to make your toppers stay moisture.
We don’t recommend blow drying your hair if you can avoid it. However, if you are looking to wear the toppers immediately after and would like to dry them quickly, make sure to use heat-protection spray to extend the lifespan of your toppers whenever you use a thermal styling tool.
