Toppik vs Caboki vs Nanogen

Toppik vs Caboki vs Nanogen

Searching for the best hair fibres can be a lengthy process, particularly to those new to using them. That’s why Nanogen, the UK’s #1 expert in thicker hair, is here to help. If you know Nanogen, you have probably heard of Toppik, but may ask yourself ‘what is caboki’, the answer is here: we’ve looked at three of the biggest hair fibres brands: Toppik vs Caboki vs Nanogen.


This is what they say:


TOPPIK UK

Toppik Hair Building Fibers are ideal for anyone who wants to disguise the challenge of thinning hair. These keratin-derived fibers are safe, natural and blend undetectably with your existing hair to create the appearance of naturally thicker, fuller hair.

CABOKI UK

Caboki is a highly effective way to combat hair loss for both men and women. It provides an instant way for anyone to give themselves a new head of hair in just a few seconds without having to resort to chemicals, medicines, or surgery. It is quick, effective, and completely natural, making it one of the most popular hair-loss products available on the market today.

NANOGEN

World famous Nanogen Keratin Hair Fibres are the perfect way for everyone to add volume and thickness to fine or thinning hair. So easy to apply just like a styling product. Will bulk hair and conceal any areas of hair thinning or scalp show through in seconds. Available in 10 shades.


All three brands promise natural-looking concealment for baldness and thinning, but how do they stack up against each other? Let’s find out...


Toppik vs Caboki vs Nanogen: Ease of application


The ease of application can be a big factor in deciding which fibres to buy. While Toppik hair fibres relies on the skill of its user alone, both Nanogen and Caboki utilise electrostatic energy to make the process simple and mess-free. Caboki hair fibres are plant-derived fibres that are naturally negatively charged which attracts them to the natural charge of human hair to avoid fall out. Nanogen, on the other hand, uses the unique Kinetic™ strip technology which gives each fibre a dipolar charge which means one end is positive and the other is negative. As a result, the fibres are drawn directly to each strand, no matter what charge the hair holds, thus limiting mess and fall out.


Caboki vs Nanogen vs Toppik: Appearance

It’s all about the appearance of fibres, and the more natural, invisible looking, the better. Both Toppik and Nanogen are made of keratin, the same protein that human hair is made of. On the other hand, Caboki is made from a special variety of cotton. Nanogen’s 100% natural keratin formula makes them the most invisible and natural-looking on the hair, as they blend seamlessly with the existing strands.


“After application, Nanogen’s Nanofibres also seems fuller and more healthy than Toppik. Also fewer Nanofibres are needed to achieve a full head of hair"

Nanogen vs Caboki vs Toppik: Staying power


All three brands claim wind and rain resistance, so as not to run or fly off in adverse weather. However, Nanogen is the only one that boasts a revolutionary patented Kinetic™ strip, which has been proven to give a whopping 400 times better binding than its competitors. The metal strip on the jar generates a charge that ensures the fibres form a stronger bond when applied. This means a natural coverage that last all day.

High quality fibres will last all day until you wash them out. Toppik, Nanogen and Caboki all claim long-lasting results, however, Nanogen’s Kinetic strip technology means that their fibres are more likely to last in place for longer.


Caboki vs Toppik vs Nanogen: Locking sprays


While we’re on the subject of staying power, both Toppik and Nanogen also offer locking sprays to add extra security for fibre users and to keep them in place even longer; Caboki does not offer this option for their customers. Toppik’s Fibrehold Spray helps to strengthen the bond between the hair and the fibres, whereas Nanogen’s Hair Fibre Locking Spray is formulated with patented waterproofing styling polymers to keep the fibres in place all day long, even underwater**! Nanogen’s fibres also include translucent shine enhancers for a natural-looking shine that lasts, as well as colour protecting UV filters that shield the fibres from colour damage and discolouration.


Toppik vs Caboki vs Nanogen: Thickening effect


Although they conceal balding areas of the head, Toppik and Caboki fibres are not formulated to give an instant thickening effect. Nanogen’s fibres actually work to provide visible thickness to each strand thanks to their ‘fir-tree pattern’, making them an excellent solution for boosting volume and enhancing the overall look of your hair.


“When I applied the Nanogen this morning, the first thing I noticed is that it actually appeared to give my hair ‘lift’ right away. It looks fuller, to boot.”
