There are many hair concealers on the market today! Some are better than others. But it should be noted that alot is down to personal preference. Everybody's hair and hair loss is different and the look they want to achieve with an instant hair thickener is greatly different. So not one product is best. We even have customers who use a combination of products to get the correct look they want. It should also be noted that most of the products can be mixed so as to achieve the correct colour. So when first trying products unfortunately the only way to know what may be best for you is by trial and error.
Here at D.S. Products we don't stock every hair concealor on the market but we try and hand pick the best ones out there for our customers. This is done by industry knowledge and testing of the products so you don't have to. We are always looking for new products so if theres any you'd like to see us stocking don't hesitate to get in touch. You'll be pleased to know that the products we do stock have had thorough testing not only by us but by our customers aswell and have all recieved very positive feedback.
There are basically 3 different types of concealer.
1. Hair thickening sprays - Initially developed and used in the TV industry to hide stars thinning hair while they were under bright lights. Then made available to the public. Very well established as they're very easy and quick too use. There are many sprays on the market today, here at D.S. Products we have hand picked the best and added to that with our own brand of spray called MaxiThick. Most recently been in the press as David Guest was using a hair thickening spray but was also used in the reality show The Salon amongst other things.
2. Hair thickening fibres - A more recent development in instant hair thickening than the sprays although have probably been in the marketplace now around 7-9yrs, although over that time they have developed and evolved. These are basically little fibres similar to hair cuttings in a jar that are sprinkled over your thinning area. Again the market place has alot of these types of products now with the better fibres being made of Keratin which is a similar type property to your own hair. They attach via static electricity, and the higher quality of brand tend to have more staying power. These now come in a variety of sizes up to around 28gm and also a very good range of colours. Again quick and easy to apply. We at the moment stock 3 brands of fibres which we feel are the very best on the market today.
3. Hair thickeners/concealors (cremes/compact powders/sticks) - Hair thickening cremes generally come in a tube and are applied with a form of applicator usually a little sponge. They were originally advertised for use for alopecia sufferers to cover bald spots but are also used for people with just thinning hair. We don't stock any cremes as they tended to be messy and very unpopular with our customers. We do however stock Maxi Professional Shader, a hair thickening powder or topical shader as its sometimes known. This is again applied with an applicator so although not as quick to use as the above sprays and fibres, you can get a precise application. So only the exact area is treated. This comes in a compact dish and is a hard powder substance. These topical shading products have been getting a good following and get very good reviews on internet forums for its use and conceal thinning areas and bald spots very well. We have also developed the unique Maxi Stick which is a completely new product which does a similar job but in a very easy to apply stick format.
