Ok But Not Great!!!
I purchased this product looking for some way to hide my thinning hair. I have hyperthyroidism causing the hair around my hairline to be noticebly thin. I ordered the product based on a review by another person suffering from this condition so I thought I'd give it a try. Plus what did I have to lose, I already had low self esteem for a long time so I decided to give it a go. I tryed the product and to my surprise I was pretty impressed. It does kind of do what its supposed to but there are a few things that I found out quickly is wrong with the product. Heres why: 1. I am a Makeup Artist and any makeup artist will tell you that a product containing TALC isnt a good product. One of the first ingredients listed on the label is TALC, I was really dissapointed because as a makeup artist we come alot of makeup products and any that has this ingredient in it we tend to stay away from because it makes the eyeshadows, blushes and powder products appear very powdery and chalky. (When you apply the Dermatch you will see exactly what I am refering to. I didn't notice this at first when first trying it, not knowing I probably looked really ridiculous, but when you apply the product, WAIT FOR IT TO DRY and then go and look in a mirror where there is good lighting. You will be able to tell you are wearing a concealer. When I first noticed it on my hair, I looked like I was wearing one of those spray paints for hair that you use for Halloween. It looked so noticebaly chalky on my hair). SO MAKE SURE YOU APPLY THE PRODUCT REALLY WELL, THEN WAIT FOR IT TO DRY TO SEE WHERE IT LOOKS POWDERY. TO FIX THIS, YOU HAVE TO USE A BABY WIPE ETC TO WIPE OFF THE EXCESS and it will appear more normal. 2. I now see why other people are complaining about the price. I dont think this product does that good of a job but it does cover up some of the appearance of thinning. YOU DEFINITELY HAVE TO HAVE SOME KIND OF HAIR LEFT. If you try to apply this product to a completely bald spot, it will not work as you will look RIDICULOUS! 3. It has helped me with my confidence as I dont look so bald anymore lol I noticed Im alot more able to handle life because I have gained some/most of my self esteem back. But, knowing that this product contains TALC, I know it can't be good for my hair so Im worried that in the long run it will do more damage than good to my hair folicles. So I will be searching for an alternative but for now this will do. (If the creators of this product really do care, PLEASE FIX THIS PROBLEM)!!! and I will be a loyal customer forever :) Hope this helps somebody out there!!!
