With the number of visitors that come to our blog each day, we’re able to get a pretty good chunk of information about products like Nanogen that our blog readers may be reading. There are plenty of hair loss concealers out there, and some of them are definitely favored above others based on what I hear from our blog readers.
Anyway, after conducting a quick survey for a few weeks on what kinds of concealers people used that they liked, an overwhelming 78% preferred DermMatch. About 12% liked Toppik, and about 7% liked Hair Cubed. However, nobody really liked any of the keratin nanofibre products like Nanogen. I asked a few more questions to get to the bottom of this problem.
First, I’ve found that most people prefer to use a product that is far more permanent. DermMatch is really just a scalp coloring agent and it doesn’t flake off or anything like that. It’s just about as permanent as a concealer can get. I’ve heard it’s not perfectly waterproof or anything, but it’s still pretty good and I know of people that have used it while swimming and have not had a problem with it.
Asked one of our blog readers named Brandon to give us a rundown of what he thought about Toppik, which is very similar to Nanogen. He said the following: “After using it for about 3 weeks, it became apparent I was never really going to be comfortable doing most of the things I do each day if I had to worry about these nanofibres flaking off. Eventually I switched to DermMatch because I knew it would be far less noticeable and wouldn’t flake off. The only downside is that it’s harder to apply and take about 10 minutes, but that’s worth it in order to look so much better with a full head of hair. I am also seeing a lot of hair regrowth with HairIntegro and eventually I’ll probably stop using concealers altogether.
Brandon helps us by offering a lot of his personal views on products, and I think this pretty much sums up what I’ve heard from a number of people about hair loss concealers. First, fibers can be messy and that’s annoying. Second, using a product that actually REVERSES hair loss is crucial in addition to a concealer, because eventually you may be able to get rid of concealers and just be happy with a full head of hair again. Either way, concealers look even better if there’s more hair to go along with it.
