For years men and women have used some kind of way to conceal the fact that they were losing their hair for one reason or another. Balding or thinning hair has been with us since the dawn of time. In the early days of hair concealers, we used spray-on colors or boot black that would make an attempt to cover up our thinning or balding spots by darkening the scalp while thickening what ever strands were present.

The trouble was that these early forms of concealers did not fool anyone and looked like someone rubbed your hair with shoe polish. While the early hair loss concealers proved to be pretty bad, they did lead the way for what we have today. Although the principles are the same as what was started back then, the advances in these concealers are a far cry from what the original products were.

The new formulas today are much better at covering up thinning spots by giving you thicker, fuller, healthier looking hair in just seconds. Advances in some of these concealers can even promote new growth while giving you the look you want until your own hair grows in.

There are 3 types of hair concealers that work as stand alone products or can be used with one another that can make you look 10 years younger, and who would not want that?

Spray-on types of hair concealers use plant based micro-fibers that are colored to match your existing hair color and are ionized with a static charge that is opposite of what your real hair is, so when applied to your existing hair, they bond with them to create the look of thicker fuller hair until you decide to wash them out.

The second kind of hair concealers are made up of keratin fibers, (which is what hair is made of) that is applied with a sprinkle can directly on the spot with very little waste. You then run a light comb or brush through your hair and then you can apply a hair spray to help keep in place.

The third type of hair loss concealers are colored pigments that are applied with a brush right to the scalp. This blends the color of your hair to the scalp and creates the look of fuller hair. This type does not thicken the hair with any fibers, but instead blends your scalp with your existing hair color to give the appearance of thicker hair.

All of the hair concealers mentioned above do a great job at covering up your existing thinning hair or balding spots and will last until you decide to wash them out. And with the new formulas today, you do not have to worry about staining your bedding, hands, or clothing.

Hair concealers were never meant to be a permanent fix to your hair loss or thinning hair problems. And, while expensive surgeries or hair transplants might not be in your budget right now, it's good to know that there is something you can do until you make that decision.

Men and women from around the world have been using hair concealers and have had nothing but great things to say about them. If you are looking for a quick fix to that bald spot or are experiencing thinning hair, you might want to consider using a hair concealer.
