HELP: Does anyone know of a special type of make up that gives the effect of hair?

Recommended Posts

I suffer from Alopecia Areta, in which I have little bald spots on my head, and was wanting to apply makeup on my bald patches on my head to help disguise my illness and blend in with my hair. Does anyone have any ideas of any types of makeup or techniques that might be suitable to blend in with my hair?

 

Thanks!! :)

Sandra

You can never use make-up in this context, because, well, you can't recreate hair in this manner. All you would do is end up darkening in a bald spot. Use a product called Toppik or Super Million Hair. You can Google both to get to their sites and the How to part. It recreates the look of real hair. I use it mostly on male actors that have bald spots, are balding and have thinning hair. And will work just as fine on women.

I've seen ads for something you spray on your head to make it appear fuller (similar to Toppik), but I never knew whether they worked or not.

I've seen those ads too. The problem is the over-spray like hairspray does. Aside from that, does it work? I haven't used that spray, so I don't know.

The spray on stuff is just little fibers that cling to each other - like a fiber mascara. If you run your hand, or a brush or if (god forbid) it rains, they'll just run everywhere.

Ah thanks @Shalott. Yeah I kinda figured, but wasn't too sure.

I tried those once and threw them away the same day. They simply did not work for me and seemed quite gimmicky.

    • Thank you❤And I like grey too. It's so mysterious!
    • Your skincare routine should involve the following  1. CLEANSE- Thats the main part of any routine. Cleanse two times a day-once in morning and other in evening. 2. MOISTURE- The key to any healthy skin is by moisturizing it daily. ,  3. PROTECTION AGAINST THE SUN- Protection against the sun is the most important for oily skin. I would recommend you to use  water-based sunscreen as oil based sunscreens make you look greasy. And the do's other than this -Remove makeup before going to bed Keep your skin and body always hydrated by drinking plenty of water and eating fruits and vegetables that are highly rich in water.  
    • Makeup items and cooking recipes are essential part for every women in this world because they are really attached with their daily activity.
    • Smashbox photo finish primer! Smart choice, I LOVE IT! I also love Touchinsol no porelem primer. I really couldn’t live without either of them. I like to switch them up so my skin doesn’t get used to either one. 
    • I 100% agree! I feel as if makeup is my armor.  It makes me feel confident and in turn that makes me happy. Make up really does boost my mood and takes away some of my self hate.
