Ebay – Toppik, Caboki, Xfusion. Is it real or is it counterfeit? Toppik claims all sellers on Ebay unauthorized. Buyers Beware.

Ebay – Toppik, Caboki, Xfusion. Is it real or is it counterfeit? Toppik claims all sellers on Ebay unauthorized. Buyers Beware.

Hair fibers – what are you really putting on your scalp?  Can it be harmful?  Can it be dangerous to your health?  Yes.  It is very possible.

You know the old saying… “If it is too good to be true, it probably is.”

A customer recently asked us if the Toppik on eBay was real or fake.  They were confused about how the prices were as much as 70% lower than the prices from the manufacturer’s own website and other legitimate retailers like Sally Beauty Supply.  We suggested they contact the manufacturer and ask.  The customer was nice enough to forward us Toppik’s response:

Toppik’s response:

“Thank you for bringing this account to our attention. Toppik does not distribute or sell to any Ebay accounts. We cannot guarantee that this is our product, nor do we recommend buying it from this source. If you would like to purchase our products,  please contact our customer service at 1.800.844.2536 or via email at support@toppik.com for more information. Or visit our website at www.toppik.com

Best,

So we did some investigation on our own.  We found several companies in China selling counterfeit Toppik.  We inquired and the companies were quick to respond that they sell knock off brand fibers which look exactly like the original on the outside.  We asked what the ingredients were and they sent us the exact same ingredient list that was on the Toppik bottle… but are they?

Further we asked about buying Caboki brand.  The same company responded that they sell Caboki knock offs too.

We contacted U.S. customs to ask how these products are making it into the country.  After they thanked us for making them aware of it they nicely told us that they can’t tell the difference so how can they stop it?  Good point.  The knock offs (counterfeits) bottles are made to match the real ones making this a daunting task.

We contacted eBay’s Vero department.  Vero responded that it is up to the manufacturer to police it.

Conclusion, if you see them on eBay for $12 range the odds are it is a fake.  One thing for sure, Toppik and other brands advise you not to buy it there.

Toppik, Caboki, Finally Hair – Hair Fibers – Real or Counterfeit? Buy Direct To Be Sure.

Toppik, Caboki, Finally Hair – Hair Fibers – Real or Counterfeit?  Our recommendation is to buy Direct from Toppik, Caboki, Finally Hair To Be Sure.

Editorial – Buyer beware… if the price for Toppik, Caboki, Finally Hair or other brands of hair fibers and hair loss concealers are too good to be true, it probably is.  Is it authentic?  The knock offs are so good that it is hard to tell.  But what are you really buying?  What’s inside?

Finally Hair Corporation has been solicited by several over seas unethical hair fibers companies that offer to sell fake Toppik, Caboki and Finally Hair hair fibers knock offs and unfortunately it appears that the US market is becoming flooded with hair fiber lookalikes.  So how do you know if your hair building fibers are real or counterfeit?  And if they are counterfeit, what are you really putting on your head and wearing all day?  If you buy direct you can rest assured that they are the real authentic fibers that you were looking for.

We have also noticed some hair fibers prices on ebay.com and other large shopping sites that (in our opinion) look questionable.  Common sense will tell you that if the prices on the manufacturer’s website is a much higher price, something in the milk may not be cream.  Manufacturers like Toppik sell through major retailers like Sally Beauty Supply.  We suggest you use Sally Beauty Supply prices as your guide.  If the price is a lot lower, are you sure it is real?

Our suggestion is that you purchase your hair fibers direct from the manufacturer’s website.  Here are some links:

http://Caboki.comCaboki Hair Fibers

This way you know that the fibers you are receiving have the exact ingredients that you expect.

Remember that if it is too good to be true, it is probably counterfeit.
