Secret Trick to Make Thin Fine Hair Appear Thicker

Method to Hide Thinning, Fine Hair

I have found an easy, inexpensive way to make THIN FINE HAIR look THICKER with more volume.
Are you self conscious about your scalp showing through your once thick hair?
Hair thinning is very common in women as well as men. As you age, hair will become thinner and sparser due to hormonal changes or genetics.
This method will certainly hide that thinning hair look, but may not be totally effective on larger bald areas.
After much experimenting, I found this easy, inexpensive way to make thin, sparse hair appear thicker.

My friend was kind enough to allow me to take pics and test it on her hair. Needless to say, she is extremely pleased with the results!

Friends and family have used my method and their hair looks "so much thicker" now and they state, "It sure beats wearing a wig!"
If you are self conscious about your shiny scalp, bare looking spots and obvious wider parts, this is the trick you can use to hide those areas.

All you need is some WATERPROOF eye shadow in the powdered form and a 1/4 to 1/2 inch wide make-up brush with firm bristles.

I would suggest choosing a shade a little darker than your hair color to make it look more natural.
First, part your hair in the thin areas of your scalp and dab on the eye shadow in a back and
forth or circular motion directly on your scalp and onto your hair roots.
You don't have to push down hard, just use a "painting" motion.
Add a small amount of eyeshadow powder to your brush a little at a time until the desired effect is obtained.
Practice adding a little more until you get the effect you want.
Waterproof eyeshadow will not rub off or drip down if you are caught in the rain or sweat on your head.
If you prefer, you can also use regular, non-waterproof eyeshadow, but it may rub off on your pillows or clothing.
It may also drip and run if you sweat or get caught in the rain.
When you decide to remove the eyeshadow, all you need to do is shampoo your hair and it will wash right out.
I hope you find that this method works as well for you!
Good luck!

      For dark brown or black hair try using Loreal Infallible Continuous Cocoa. Just started using it 3 weeks ago and I love it. I have thinning front and center and have been embarrassed about it most of my life. This is perfect.

      Good tips, good pictures. I guess this helps hide gray roots too. Good job.
