Bald spots are not very lady-like and thinning hair makes it even worse, but I found a way to deal with both issues quite by necessity and cheaply, I might add.
About a year ago, I had a real bad hair day, and it was important that I looked great, because I had an interview to attend. Well, as we all know, that is precisely when our hair will disobey us and do its own design and this apparently was “Einstein” day.
Well, after the usual argument in the mirror, I had the idea that one of my eye shadows matched the color of my hair and, more importantly, my roots. I proceeded to apply some of the brown powder with a brush instead of an applicator. This had two effects, first it covered the bald spot, and second, it made my hair look fuller and thicker.
I sprayed a little hairspray and then touched up the spots that needed it to blend. I continued to curl and comb out my hair and finished with the finishing spray. I looked better than I had in years.
Since my chemo, my hair did not grow back thick and wavy as it was before. Since I had had a full hysterectomy as well, the female hormones played a big portion in the thin hair part of the problem. Nevertheless, over the scar of the brain surgery, no hair ever grew back. Walla… bald spot.
You can imagine how delighted I was to find an inexpensive, quick way to fix my problems but I needed confirmation that it did not appear unnatural or fake. I took selfies from all angles and lighting and sent them around asking honestly how my hair looked. Not one negative response from anyone and they all know how I value direct honesty.
So, try it and pass it along to someone who may need the advice. If someone had shared this idea with me, I would have been very grateful.
