Camouflaging Hair Loss
Individuals with hair loss may decide to pursue medical or surgical treatment for hair loss or may decide to reduce the appearance of hair loss with a variety of scalp camouflaging agents. Some of my patients do both.
Current camouflaging agents for hair loss include:
- wigs and hairpieces
- keratin fibers
- powder cakes
- scalp camouflaging sprays
- scalp camouflaging lotions
- hair extensions
- scalp tattooing and micropigmentation
We recently published a comprehensive article about all of these scalp camouflaging agents in the Dermatology Online Journal. Our hope is that this article will provide medical professionals with helpful information so that they may in turn counsel their own patients with hair loss.
