There are actually a ton of products to hide women’s hair loss out there, it’s just a matter of finding which ones work for you. If you need to cover a larger area, many women opt for for hair fibers. These are small (they almost look like dust) hair fibers that you shake into the area that you need coverage and then pat down. They cling to your own natural hair and have a similar texture, so they look fairly realistic. The hair fibers I’ve used in the past are Toppik hair fibers. They come in a few colors and are pretty believable (I take “Light Brown”)!
One of my favorite products to hide women’s hair loss is Bumble & Bumble Hair Powder…I get it from Amazon. It’s always worth a click to see if Sephora has it, too. I think it’s actually touted as a dry shampoo, but what it does is conceal your scalp and thicken up the root area.
Now you all know what my hair loss looks like with freshly-shampooed hair:
And here I am with NO concealers, but with volumizing products for thin hair:
So, what did I use to get the look above? Well, a few things. The #1 product my readers write me ALL THE TIME about is Big Sexy Hair Root Pump Plus. This product is amazing for adding thickness at the roots – I can’t believe the difference this product makes in my styling route.
I also like to use Nioxin Diamax right at my roots. This product is actually made to thicken each individual hand strand. Combined with the Big Sexy product mentioned above, it makes a huge difference in my before/after, don’t you think?
I love layering the two products, but if you are looking for just one product to add volume, go with Big Sexy Hair Root Pump Plus.
Now, if you add in my Bumble & Bumble concealer (color: Brown), you have this:
And one final one that shows it a bit more close-up with the hair loss spray powder. I don’t think I had product overload here; it looks a bit darker on either side of my part about 1 inch up from my forehead. I’m wondering if it’s a shadow from the light fixture above? Not sure…it’s really hard taking these picture sometimes! Plus, the lighting in my bathroom is never great.
The Bumble & Bumble Hair Powder is the icing on the cake that takes my hair to the next level. The other products help it to look “more normal”, but the hair powder gives me the confidence to go on with my day, knowing that my thinness is perfectly concealed.
So there you have it–me at my very worst to what I look like every day. Now you know the major products I use…be sure to check out my complete volumizing and disguising routine, too.
