“It was so exciting, my hands were shaking with excitement when unpacking.
So nice to have my own hair back and put it on.”
Doesn't my hair have to be saved before the first chemo?
No, not at all! The best time to cut is one week after the first chemo:
A – Then the hair is not yet affected by the chemo, and
B – It is just a little less difficult to cut it short in one go, because it will probably soon fall out altogether.
We'll email you the cutting instructions.
Won't it take a very long time for my own-hairband to be ready?
No, we make the own hair band within 2 to 5 weeks, depending on the package you choose. Even if it is sent from abroad.
But I never wear a hat...
That is okay! There are many other ways to wear your Toupim hairband, such as under a bandana, scarf, hat, cap, beanie or turban. You should get used to it very quickly and no one will notice.
Is it really much more comfortable than a wig?
Absolutely! That is why we developed Toupim hairbands.
If I have thick, long hair can I only cut some off, so then it won't be left ultra short?
Unfortunately, to be able to make the best possible own-hairband, we need ALL the hair in its full length, even if you have long hair. Always contact Toupim first, and we can give our advice.
I already cut it off before I discovered the site. Is that bad?
It's not the most ideal scenario, but we can always work something out. Please contact the Toupim-Team.
The falling out has already started and my hair is suddenly very dry. What now?
Please contact us directly. We have become quite good at magic.
I am too anxious to completely cut my hair, can I just get a hairband of donated hair?
Donated hair is worth gold and we wish to save it for people who no longer have their own hair. We can possibly try see if a standard model would be suitable for you. Please contact us to discuss this further.
Does a hairband require a lot of maintenance?
No, not at all. It does not need any special maintenance. You can treat your hair exactly as you did when it was attached to your head, with your own shampoo and haircare products. Our product hardly wears, even when worn intensively.
I'm 86, can I still have my own-hairband? Or is it only for young people?
Toupim own-hairbands are suitable for all ages and all hair types. We have already made many women and girls (3-89 years old) intensely happy with their own hair on a Toupim own-hairband and we want to do everything we can to do this for you too.
Do you also make an own hairband for men/boys?
Definitely! The important thing is, is that your hair is at least 10 - 15 centimeters.
