How To Fix / Fill In A Patchy Beard – Product Review. PATCHY BEARD SOLUTION! ✖ James Welsh


I am very nervous. Okay. Hello, everybody. Welcome back to another Test IT Tuesday. Today, I’ve got a product
that I’ve been really excited to trial and to show you guys… And this product is potentially, gonna help make my beard
look thicker, a lot fuller and also give me a nice clean line
down the side. This brand is Toppik hair fibers. This is their little travel kit
that I ordered from Amazon. Of course, a link will be down below. Now, these fibers are colored fibers. I’ve ordered the black
because I’ve got black hair but they come in loads of different colors. They’re little fibers that attach themselves
onto your hair to make your hair look thicker
and fuller. Really have high expectations for this. The reason I’ve chose Toppik is because I’ve seen them
all over Instagram being used by barbers, you know, to get that really crisp fine line, which I’m not a fan of by. I’m a fan of thicker looking hair
on the side, so. Okay, so here
we have the hair building fibers. I got them in jet black. Okay, so you just take off the plastic film. This is supposed
to make the application of the hairs a lot easier. Okay, you then screw this on. Hi, guys! Okay, so here we are on my face. So what we’re gonna do
is spray this all around here and then like in the barber videos, we’re gonna use a clean blade to like tidy up
and I really get that fine line in. So yeah, here we go. I’m guessing I just spray this.
I am very nervous. Okay. Wow! It’s going on very patchy
as you can see and what if I hold it further away? It smells like smoke machine
at a disco. You can physically see
where I’m spraying it, like it’s very, obvious. Must say there’s something going on very easily, it’s pretty,
not best to talk while I’m doing this. There’s a lot of fiber in the air
at the moment. Now, it looks very patchy.
It’s kind of been everywhere but what I did see in the video, is they combed it through,
so I’m gonna grab a comb really quick and just see if we can get
this looking a bit more natural ’cause it kind of looking
like a fake beard at the moment. It looks like I’ve stuck it on. Okay,
so I have my little mustache comb, mustache. This look does not suit me at all. Okay, so as you can see,
like I haven’t quite got the line right, it looks a little bit patchy where I started spraying it really,
really close. So, let’s try– Let’s try the other side. I’m gonna hold it further away so that kind of gives an even coverage and hope it doesn’t attach onto my skin. That’s a lot better. So I’m holding it like here now. I feel like that’s a lot better.
I kind of went wrong here but as you can see on here, I filled in this kind of
like patchy bit that I have here and I don’t feel like
it looks that real. I think keeping up
a little bit of patchiness is gonna kind of make it look
a lot more convincing. You know what, it’s just taking
a lot of practice to get, to work on how to do the coverage
if that makes sense, like where you need to hold it,
how many sprays you need. If that makes sense, so yeah,
let’s try shaping it up a bit now. I can’t tell where my actual…
facial hair is now. Oh! it’s over my ear. Right, let’s ignore what’s going on
in my ear and on my cheek where I’ve definitely over sprayed it. The coverage is pretty good,
like it’s definitely… it’s definitely filled in
quite a few gaps. Okay, I’m gonna go
and get like a face wipe and just kind of tidy
everything up, yeah. I don’t know, I feel… So I don’t think
this is the most flattering look on myself. It makes my cheeks
look really big. Like… So I don’t have the shape for
this kind of like you know, fine line beard going on. They do give you a natural comb but what I think I’m gonna do when this video goes live is I’m gonna, I’ll go to Snapchat
and Instagram Stories, how if this comb is any better? As far as the actual fibers go
they are really, really good, they attach them to the hair.
They make it look a lot thicker. There is a technique behind it that I obviously haven’t figured out yet. It is actually a really decent product. It’s just gonna take a lot of time
to kind of get used to and figure out
how to use properly and how, it’s kind of
like an art form, you know, like where to spray
and how to spray it. There were actually little fibers
kind of like all around this eye area. all on my nose,
it was like a fine black covering, which I did have to wipe off and that would annoy me
after doing my whole skincare routine and then going in and doing the fibers that would really, really annoy me. So yeah, also in the videos
they do have kind of like a guide. So the art of doing that,
if that makes sense. So that’s a good idea
that I should have done. It does also come with setting spray
to keep the fibers in place, which I’m not gonna spray
on my skin because I’m not sure
how my skin is gonna react to it. Yeah, I actually, I do think
it’s a really decent product. This will be great for your hair as well, if you are thinning in certain places. Yeah, it’s just kind of getting the right technique and the right way of using– I can’t see– The screw top puff thing applicator, I think is a genius idea. It’s very, very good for like
ease of application. So with all that in mind, I think I’m gonna give this four
and a half stars out of five because it’s good,
it’s just gonna take practice. As I keep saying, like everything in life takes a bit of getting used to it,
a bit of practice. I personally will not be using
this product because I hate this look on me. So yeah, I’m glad that went wellish.
I think that went well. But yeah, let me know
if you use hair fibers. It doesn’t have to be Toppik,
let me know if you use any on your facial hair, any tips that you
might have in regards to you know,
shaping it up properly. And as always make sure
you subscribe to my channel and leave your comments down below. I’ll try to answer them within like the first 24 hours of the post in the video. But yeah, that is it for this week guys, I will see you next time.
