Bald spots are an inevitable part of aging. At some point of time, every individual will have to face hair thinning on the crown and sides of their heads.
Just because you will lose most of your hair by 70, not necessarily do you have to begin accepting it at 30. So what can you do to cover bald spots? Well, it might be difficult for you to believe, but there are quite a few effective and simple solutions for masking, disguising, or covering a bald spot — in certain cases, you may also seek help from medical science and technology to regrow hair. Check out five wonderful tips that can help you cover up a bald spot at home.
Use Keratin Fibers or a Topical Concealer
There is no better way of covering a bald spot than using keratin fibers, aka topical concealers or camouflaging products. Keratin fibers are tiny, strand-like fibers that will cling to your scalp and hair, imitating the natural appearance of hair. These fiber concealers create an illusion of naturally fuller and thicker hair. Applying a topical concealer is very simple – shake them over your bald spot, and it will stick. When you want to get rid of the fibers, just wash your hair.
Try Clip-In Hair Extensions
Clip-in hair extensions are the best way of adding temporary length and more volume to our hair, but these extensions can also be used to mask bald spots. Strategically place a clip-in extension on the spot where you feel your scalp is more visible, and your mane will instantly appear fuller and thicker.
Use a Root Cover-Up Spray
Root cover-up sprays are typically used to extend the time between two color touch-up sessions. But you may also use this spray for covering bald spots temporarily. These root concealers come in a variety of shades to seamlessly blend with your natural hair color and mask your scalp.
Opt for Cover Up Powder
If keratin fibers and root sprays are not suitable for you, give this product a try. Just like a root cover-up spray – a cover-up powder can also be used to extend the time between two salon appointments, but it is also incredible at covering bald spots. Brush the pigmented powder on your bald spot, just as you use a brush on your makeup — and watch your bald patch disappear in no time.
Go for Micropigmentation
If you are seeking a solution that is more permanent, consider micropigmentation for your hair loss woes. Much like “permanent” makeup or eyebrow microblading — micropigmentation involves a procedure that requires a professional to inject a pigment deep into the scalp—much like a tattoo — to resemble the look of hair follicles.
These hair products and treatments are some of the simplest and fastest ways of masking a bald spot. Do give them a try!
