I’ve put it off long enough. I’ve gotten sooo many requests to do a video showing how I use Bumble & Bumble Hair Powder (dry shampoo) to conceal my bald spots and thinning hair. At this point, it’s been over a year since I stopped the concealing method and started wearing supplemental hair, but, since there has been such an interest I thought I would finally do a video on it.
My hair was in a better place when I used to use the Bumble and Bumble Brown Hair Powder in a variety of ways. For one, my hair loss was slightly better back then, so while my hair was definitely thinning, I had fewer bald spots to cover.
Also–and I say this in the video–my hair was meant to be seen when I used this Bumble and Bumble spray. I was still seeing my stylist regularly so my hair was dyed and I had highlights throughout my crown. My hair was also cut much more nicely than it is, now.
Currently, my hair never sees the light of day (ha!) so I don’t worry about upkeep. Oh boy, and it shows.
So, even though my hair isn’t at its “best” (I can’t believe I’m even saying my hair was ever at “its best”, how ironic), I thought I’d do the (slightly off-center) video anyways.
After all, this product was an absolute lifesaver for SO many years, for me.
Be sure to check out my post about concealing my hair loss, as it will show you how “nice” my bio hair was, and how this product lays underneath it, making it the perfect hair powder for bald spots and thinning hair.
One thing I noticed while watching the video (ugh, who likes to watch themselves?!) is that I didn’t focus too much on my part area. If I was going to go out in public with just the Bumble and Bumble hair powder in, I’d work a bit closer on the part to make it look less wide. I used to do this quite successfully back in the day. Or, I could use some of my Joan Rivers Great Hair Day powder to get right up close to the part. You might remember I showed you that product in my other video about how I integrate my topper.
I was thinking, this would make an excellent concealer for those suffering from post-partum hair loss, since bald spots can definitely happen a few months after you have a baby (I know I suffered through this with both pregnancies).
So where do I buy Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder?
Short answer: Wherever is cheapest.
Some salons carry it, but it’s also available at a few websites. Amazon has it (below), as well as Sephora. I typically have to order online if Sephora is the best option, though, since the nearest store is pretty far away. Ulta is closer to me but they don’t carry it!
Who has tried Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder for bald spots and thinning hair…or just to give their hair a bit of oomph? Do you have any tips or tricks on technique to share?
