So much going on – globally, nationally and personally. I can definitely use a little levity, so I’m bringing you a bit of intel on ThinHairThick. And yes, I do have a coupon code for you (use LAUREN30 for $3o off)!
If you’ve been nervous about jumping on the helper hair train because you fear clip damage, or, if you’re looking for a clever way to secure a topper…this is it!
I’m going to answer all your questions in this post, but if you have any questions about this innovative product, leave them in the comments. I’m happy to answer them. For the next few days, Tiffany from ThinHairThick will be answering any questions about the products, her hair loss journey or anything on your mind!
What is ThinHairThick?
ThinHairThick (THT) carries both human and synthetic hair toppers that use a grippy headband system to secure your topper – NO CLIPS needed.
I know many of you have seen the damage topper clips have caused with my own bio hair. A large part of me doesn’t mind, because I do plan to wear hair forever. But, many of you would prefer to keep your bio hair intact and healthy.
There’s also a large majority of my readers whose bio hair is simply too thin to have success with traditional clips, but don’t want to yet jump to full wigs.
THT used to carry human hair only, but over time introduced synthetic hair no-clip toppers to their lineup. I’m a huge proponent of synthetic hair (you can read the blog post I just linked for all the reasons) since it’s sooooo easy. Tiffany, the founder of THT appreciates the ease as well and was super-excited to bring synthetic into her product line.
So what comes in your ThinHairThick package?
I love this little cork-like bag that holds the product!
You’ll get you hair piece, and two different types of headbands to wear. One is a fuller/wider headband and the other is skinner at the nape of the neck.
It’s a matter of preference, but I prefer the skinnier version myself, and you’ll see it here:
How Does ThinHairThick work?
It’s so simple.
Take your own hair, and put it into a ponytail to get it off your neck.
Place the headband on, and pull some of your bio hair out in front to help the piece blend (just like any other piece you may have worn).
Note: There is a certain way to wear the band, but the instructions are really clear. You want to position it the correct way so that the material (it’s velvety!) rubs against your head the way it should to keep the hair topper in place. If the band is worn flipped inside out, it’ll slip).
Once the headband is in place, you can put the hair topper on.
The topper has a set of combs that are meant to slide under the headband.
Let’s pause for a moment to reflect on my large bald spot that you see here. THIS is what ThinHairThick prevents by not using clips!
Slide all the clips under the headband. Then, secure the elastic from the topper over the velvet-y headband.
This part is a teeny bit cumbersome. Once the combs are placed under the headband, then you can take your bio hair out of your ponytail and brush it all together to blend.
It’s a layered approached. From bottom to top, you’ll have your headband, then your bio hair, then the piece.
I think this video shows the execution pretty well:
The piece that I have is the Long version (18-20”) in color Ash Brown. A Medium length of 14-15” is also offered. My look is so much more basic than the blonde in the video above. 🙂
I love this color – it’s perfect for me. All of the colors are gorgeous, in fact. I simply adore the two gray options as well!
As my long-time readers know, I like to show you pieces right out of the box wherever possible. It’s always such a bummer to see a beautiful piece out there and when you get it, you realize that it’s been heavily altered.
This is a standard practice, of course. A piece will always look its best when it’s cut to your face, washed and styled! I just personally prefer to show you pieces as close to “raw” as possible.
I love how swingy she is when she arrives.
(I am currently in my “office wear” in this pic. A somewhat-decent tank top and clashing pink PJ pants. Working from home is the best!)
ThinHairThick Synthetic Fibers
The synthetic fiber is heat-defiant (HD), which means you can style it as you would human hair (just use low heat!). The trick with HD fiber is that even if you prefer not to use heat tools on it to style, you should use heat on it semi-regularly, as it will help to keep the fiber looking and feeling new & fresh.
As much as I love so many of my human hair pieces (and THT has those, too!), I always come back to synthetic. I love being able to not be SUPER careful with it, and I love how the style holds the whole day. Of course, a fantastic price point is helpful, too.
The founder of THT, Tiffany, loves synthetic for many of the same reasons. In reading her “Top 3 Pros of Synthetic Hair” post from her, I found myself nodding my head over and over again. We really bonded over point #2, in particular.
I’ve been wearing my THT for work. As I’m currently working from home (again…pink pajama pants…), I’d doing lots and lots of video meetings so I need to look put together a few times a day. That’s the nice thing – I can just take it off when I don’t need or want to wear hair.
You might be wondering what I mean.
When I’m at home, I don’t always feel like wearing hair.
(You could though, because ThinHairThick toppers are very, very comfortable!)
Plus, I’ve been working out a little bit, because I’ve been busy eating ALL THE THINGS.
I usually tape my toppers down, which works GREAT except when you want to remove it prematurely during the day. When it’s nighttime, no big deal…you just remove it and you’re done for the day.
But in the middle of the day it’s a bit of a drag because you have to peel the tape off and then reapply a new strip if you need to put your hair back on. Now, I can just take off my hair, work out, shower, and slip it back on – all without running through my tape supply. Win!
I also want to show you a pic outdoors so you can see the color in that light.
No matter what you do in this topper, because the clips are secured UNDER the headband, and the headband doesn’t budge on your head, the whole thing stays really, really secure.
Those of you that have trouble with toppers lifting in the front will not experience that with these clipless toppers.
Here’s a closeup of the very front.
And here is the part area (it’s a mono top, which mean you can part your hair in any direction, and you’ll be able to see your own scalp through the piece):
Coupon Code for ThinHairThick – Save $30
If you want to try ThinHairThick for yourself either in synthetic or human hair, you can use code LAUREN30 to save $30 (not an affiliate code). The pieces are already super-affordable, so I think Tiffany is a bit crazy for offering that on top of the great prices. 🙂
Overall, I think these clipless toppers are a really cool concept. The scalp is realistic, the colors are beautiful and the construction of it preserves your hair for as long as possible (no tugging or pulling on delicate bio hair!). If you’re concerned about bald spots or are just wanting to try something that is amazingly comfortable, this could be a great option for you.

If you wear shoulder length or slightly shorter, would the headband at the nape be visible in excessively windy weather? Also concerned about outdoor activities such as boating.
I am interested in trying this topper, because clips have caused some damage to my hair.
But I wasn’t sure which headband to choose.
So I was glad that you said you get both with your order.
But I was told that you actually only get the wider one, and if I want the low profile one also, then it’s an extra cost.
I feel I have a small sized head. Any advice which headband might work best?
I like the smaller! But I have a flattish head.
Would this stay on when riding a roller coaster? How would it work at the pool if it gets splashed a bit (but not completely submerged)? What about sweating – does moisture affect how the headband stays on?
Lauren – is the Ash Brown color similar enough to your Top Style color that you could interchange the 2 pieces throughout the week?
The Top Style color (10H16) has more highlights so it wouldn’t be a direct switch – the color of Ash Brown is more than base of the Top Style, if that makes sense. If it gets splashed – no problem (probably would not submerge!). Sweat shouldn’t affect the staying power too much..lots of people like hair+headband options for working out, in fact.
How does the rim thickness of this compare to say a JR synthetic rim? With thinner hair in the front, I love the idea of the headband/comb combo, but I’m a little worried about how thick the rim may be.
I’d say the rim thickness is similar to a JR Top Style/Top Secret as both have poly in the front…but thinner than the JR Top Wave (for some reason, that ones feels thicker).
