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.

    • Steaming at home: A good steamer does not have to be available at the spa. You can bring home the best facial steamer and have a great steaming session at the comfort of your home. All you have to do is to follow the right set of rules to get high-end results. Bring home the best facial steamer from the store. Read the user manual carefully. Before you turn it on, give your face a good wash and do not apply anything. Keep your hair away from the face by neatly wrapping it. Use normal tap water inside the steamer, turn it on, and wait for vapours to arise. Keep the steamer almost 6-8 inches away from your face. Align your face to get the steam vapours. Take the steam vapours for a minute and move your face away from it for half a minute. Continuously taking the steam over the face may leave your skin burnt. Start off your cleansing session and pull out all the black and whiteheads. Dab a clean towel to remove the water droplets on your face and then apply a good moisturizer. Choose a facial steamer with the quickest start-to-steam option. This makes it the best facial steamer. Have a steam session, not more than once in a week as over steaming your facial steam can make it dry or burn it. Moisturize skin immediately after a good steam session to trap moisture and make the skin hydrated.
