December is a month of cheer, but for those women experiencing 10-20 percent hair thinning or loss that cheer can be replaced with a bit of worry. There’s no need to worry this holiday season, camouflage makeup is a simple solution for early hair thinning and loss to keep that holiday cheer alive.
Just like light powder and liquid can cover dark and red spots on skin, light powder and liquid can conceal thinning areas on your scalp. After a consultation at Jeffrey Paul Salon, we can show you how this camouflage solution can help you look nearly perfect so you can enjoy that holiday party.
Here are some of my tips for applying camouflage makeup:
1. Cover only the empty or emptier parts of your scalp.
2. For oily to normal skin on your scalp, the best product to use is a pressed powder. This eliminates shine and is absorbed well.
3. If you have dry to normal skin on your scalp, try a cream that will help to eliminate dryness. Both products do what we want them to – they go directly on the scalp and very little gets on the hair itself.
Figuring out which products are best for your scalp’s skin condition is between you and your specialist, but there are a few basic rules to apply; With any makeup, utilize neighboring hair for blending and partial coverage of the make-up area. Don’t use anything overly drying or that doesn’t hold up in inclement weather or while you’re active. Take it off (gently) when you’re done, as you would with regular makeup on your face. Match your shade as carefully as possible. Colors can be blended to your shade of choice.
