Scalp camouflage refers to a variety of methods to reduce the appearance of hair loss. Hair camouflaging agents include hair fibers, powder cakes, lotions, sprays, hair crayons, and scalp micropigmentation.

DermMatch is a so called “powder cake” and is applied to the scalp with an applicator. The popular product colors the scalp and also binds hairs. It is available in a variety of colors. DermMatch is safe to use and provides very effective camouflage for individuals with early staged hair loss.

Male and female patients with androgenetic alopecia, telogen effluvium, alopecia areata and even some localized scarring alopecias have found these products very helpful to reduce that appearance of hair loss.
