What type of hair is used to make the Comme un diadème hair toppers?
We use natural Brazilian "Remy" hair. The term "Remy" means that the hair and the cuticles of the strand are oriented in the same direction on the topper.
This is in contrast to non-Remy hair, which is assembled in bulk. It is therefore more prone to tangling and damage.
How to choose the size of the topper base?
You should choose the Cap size of the topper according to the extent of your alopecia and the density of hair you wish to acquire. It is preferable that the clips are not attached in the area of alopecia where the scalp can be quite sensitive. In addition, extensive alopecia will require the addition of a high density of hair to compensate for the initial low density.
For extensive alopecia, we recommend 18 × 18 cm or 20×20 cm bases. These bases will provide real coverage, density and comfort of use. Larger base sizes are available for very large alopecia.
The smaller bases (15×15 cm) will give a little less density to the hair. But they will allow you to tie your hair in a high ponytail more easily .

Is it possible to colour the hair of the hair topper Comme un diadème?
hair topper has usually undergone complex bleaching and colouring processes before achieving its final colour.
This hair has therefore been sensitised. They may react in an unexpected way to a colouring or bleaching process. It is usually possible to darken a topper. However, it is not recommended to bleach it as this may alter the hair. Therefore, if in doubt between two shades as to which hair colour to choose, it is best to choose the lighter shade of hair.
In all cases, it is important to have the topper coloured or bleached by a professional colourist who is used to working with this type of hair.
hair toppers Comme un diadème are sold uncut. At first glance, the topper may not seem to fit your face and/or hairstyle. However, a rough piece needs to be made to fit you completely. We therefore recommend that, if the basic colour, length and size suit you, you have the topper cut by a hairdresser so that it can blend in completely naturally with your own hair.
