Finding a way to hide hair loss is a priority for most of us as we work on trying to restore our hair to its former glory.
Changing hairstyles or wearing head bands and scarves can both be helpful tactics. But another option is to instantly 'plump up' the existing hair or disguise thin patches with a 'fill-in' powder or product that can be shaken into the hair.
Easy to use, these products can be a great way to get your confidence back and are much more economical than costly extensions. They are also designed to stay put in your hair, so you can enjoy the things you want to do without worrying that your secret will be revealed to the world!
Here are some of the most effective products currently available to help you hide hair loss in an instant.

Joan Rivers Great Hair Day® fill-in powder
Another hugely popular product is Joan Rivers Great Hair Day® fill-in powder, which was created specifically for her all day TV shows.
Rather than fibers, this product is a powder which comes with a handy mirror and specially designed brush, making it easy to apply. Coverage is excellent, it doesn't wear off in any way and comes in 6 different colors, so you can get a perfect match.
It may be a little pricey, but it lasts for a while and its many fans say it's well worth the investment!Click here to buy
Irene Gari Fill In Powder
If your budget is a serious consideration when choosing a fill-in powder to hide hair loss, then this product is well worth checking out.
Similar to Joan Rivers Great Hair Day®, this is a powder that you apply with a brush and is resistant to both sweat and the elements.
Whilst users of both products tend to remark on the superiority of Great Hair Day®, this powder still does a good job, and for a mere fraction of the price.
Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder
Although designed as a tinted dry shampoo, some women find this useful as a hair loss concealer.
It certainly does a good job of hiding the scalp and - because it absorbs oil - tends to make the hair look fuller too.
It can be sprayed on to the hair, so it's easy to use, although you do need to be careful and avoid inhaling the spray, particularly if you are using it regularly. And do bear in mind the fact that this product has a drying effect, so it might not be your best choice as a fill-in powder if you plan to use it on a daily basis.
