  • theres a beauty place here where I live called raes, but i bet they would have it at like sallys or any type of beauty store. anyway, its just a powder and you buy the color that your hair is and you putthe powder on then it makes your scalp the sameish color you rhair is so your scalp is less noticible. go to a beauty type store and talk to them

  • Well, first of all, is it due to a medical condition or is it unknown cause? If you want to try something between covering it up for an unknown cause, you might want to try getting a squeeze bottle (think empty plastic condiment bottle with the small nozzle) and mix 1 part baking soda with 6 parts water then add 2-3 drops of rosemary essential oil. When you go to wash your hair, shake it up and squeeze some onto your scalp and scrub it in well. Let sit during your shower (5 or so mins) then rinse. You may wish to follow up with a 1 part white vinegar to 8 part water solution. Squeeze in, rub in well, rinse. What this does is if your thinning hair is caused by mineral deposits in your follicles, it will help clear it out. Rosemary oil helps stimulate hair growth. I've nixed shampoo and have started cleaning my hair with natural ingredients and it's made a world of difference with my hair. It's worth a try. Hope this helps.

  • Ran out of space - You can omit the essential oil if you want. It's not absolutely necessary. You can try just the straight up solutions of baking soda/water vinegar/water first to see if it improves. If so, I definitely suggest finding some essential oil. My home made mix is green tea, a teaspoon of lemon juice, baking soda, rosemary oil and water. My 'conditioner' is coconut vinegar, water, 1 stick of cinnamon (careful with this if you have sensitive skin) and 1 low-grade vanilla bean (the cheap ones. It and the cinnamon are only there because it makes my hair smell good. Vinegar scents do go away when your hair is dry, so no need to worry about smelling like a salad all day).

  • I´d look into an integration type of wig. Your hair is blended through the wig and then you have to go get adjustments on it (every month or 6 wks). Very natural looking and not fake looking like wigs are. Not cheap though. My great aunt had one.

  • hair pieces and my brother used rogaine when he was thinning, it helped for him. I saw in the pharmacy that they have it for women.
