Hair Loss Concealers


Growing back lost hair might be mission impossible for many of us who started treating their baldness after many years of losing hair. If you are not convinced about the benefits of hair transplantation yet and only need quick fixes for certain occasions, hair loss concealers might be a reasonable option. There are many different kinds of camouflage but fibres are by far the most natural-looking solution. The statically-charged microfibres that are sprinkled over the thinning areas cling tightly to the existing hair on the scalp. They bond so securely that they should stay in place all day and night, in even the strongest wind or hardest rain. Use only a wide toothed comb or your own fingers to style your hair. The fibres should remain in the hair until the next shampoo wash. Some of the most common names among microfibre hair loss concealers are Toppik, Nanofibres, Organin, Fullmore, Super Million Hair, HairSoReal, Mega THIK and Dr. Robert Jones Instant Hair Thickening Fibers. The common problem with all of them is that they only come in relatively few shades and thus may not match everybody's hair colour.

Consumer reviews are relatively positive, though some people complain that the fibres brush off onto the pillow case at night. The biggest drawback seems to be the small choice of available shades. If the shade is too different from your hair colour, it makes the fibres detectable from a distance. Some consumers recommend using two different brands of hair loss concealers at the same time in order to overcome problems with unsuitable shades and adhesion of fibres. Some negative comments are related to difficulties with applying the fibres accurately to the areas where they are needed most. Using these products correctly takes practice and a steady hand. Therefore, it is advisable to use those products that come with a spray applicator.
