but your hair looks extremly thick after using couvre, or ist that an illusion?
I thought the exact same as you, that is why i bought both toppik and couvre to begin with but to my surprise the couvre pretty much did the whole job, without much need for toppik (although toppik does provide extra extra thick hair when used with couvre).
those photos are with couvre only, but I will add to achieve that look of thickness I put a small amount of hair gel in my hair after the couvre aplication and then blow dried my hair.
I think the reason it becomes very thick is because just like toppik there is couvre particles that get stuck on to your hair shafts as you can see here...
my hair is 100 x easier to style with couvre in as its thick and has real volume, i dont understand quite how it improves SO much but i now tell anyone whos thinning to use it because i dont see how you would be disapointed with hair that, even if an illusion, looked and felt 10x thicker.
the only thing i will say is that i think how good couvre is depends on the colour. I normally use medium brown but when, in the past, i have accidently ordered dark bown (which is pretty much black) I havent quite got my hair as thick so you may want to try one or twwo colours to see which is best.
