Do hair loss concealers actually work? Or are they just another scam designed to take your hard-earned money for a worthless product?
These concealers are becoming increasingly popular, with brands like DermMatch and Caboki leading the market.
While they can be difficult to use at times, for a special occasion where you want to look your best they may be worth the effort to disguise bald spots.
I set out to investigate the world of hair loss concealers and made the following findings:
Sometimes they work
Hair loss concealers are a good way to cover up specific bald patches. They work by the powdery fibers clinging to the remaining hair you have and creating the illusion of hair where there is none.
It is important to take the time to learn how to use the product properly before your first outing when using a concealer, as lack of technique can leave the result looking less than realistic.
Sometimes they don't work at all
They don't work for everyone, you need to have a fine fuzz in place to provide something for the fibers to cling to. Otherwise, the powder will just slip off.
Other downsides include the product slipping off in rain or windy weather. This isn't ideal if you want to keep your hair loss secret.
If you have a large area of baldness to cover, or your hair loss is patchy it can take a long time to cover your bald spots with these products.
They aren't so great for women or men with long hair, as the fibers are only very short and therefore cannot blend into long hair in the same way that they do for shorter hair lengths.
There is a better solution
Wouldn't it be better to tackle the cause of hair loss and permanently restore your lost hair instead of merely covering it up with a concealer?
There are hair loss products on the market that have proven themselves to work quickly and effectively to stop hair loss and restore lost hair.
Our top rated hair loss treatment is a dual action system called Har Vokse that works for both men and women within as little as two weeks. It also has been proven to work for over 90% of people.
