    I have to replace my topper about every four months because it thins. With my current one, I have been trying to wash it only 2 times per week but even then when I brush it in the morning, tons of hair come out of it. I am not sure why this is happening but its a problem because the topper that is supposed to last 6 months needs to be replaced sooner costing me more $$$$:(. Has anyone had this problem? Any suggestions?

    hi there,
    I'm new to this forum but have been wearing bonded toppers for over 10 years. I'm not sure what type of topper/hair system you are wearing because mine rarely last for 6 months. I wear Hollywood lace with human hair (not European) and they will typically begin some serious shedding after 3 months of continual wear. I actually have 3 now that I can rotate so I am able to make them each last for 4 or 5 months, but shedding at 4 months is not unrealistic and should probably be expected unless you are wearing an expensive European hair topper.
    Are you purchasing from a hair salon or online??
