As anyone suffering from genetic balding can tell you, this condition is progressive. Despite some very effective treatments for hair loss, most notably Propecia (finasteride) and Rogaine (minoxidil), the fight against balding can be quite challenging over the long term since hair loss is progressive and unpredictable. Topical concealers can help by temporarily providing balding men and women with thicker looking hair instantly.
Many men and women swear by these products and have very positive experiences to share. However, while all of these concealers are marketed as being easy to apply, non-messy and virtually permanent until washed out, some users complain of problems including; messy application, running and discoloration when sweating or caught in the rain and staining of hands and pillows.
These concerns led forum member “EpilepticSceptic” to start the thread Will “concealers” evolve and advance further in 5-10 years?, prompting members to share their thoughts and wishes regarding future innovations. Follow the link to contribute your opinions to the discussion.
