Receding hairline is something not only men but also women face. Either the density of hair has always been low or it comes with getting older. Especially when tying the hair or making special hair styles a receding hairline can ruin the whole appereance and make one feel uncomfortable. The Fidentia hair shader is one of the hair concealers on the market which I’ve been using for a while now. Although this is a rather uncomfortable topic I hope you’ll benefit from this honest and independent review.
The Fidentia hair shader is there to cover thinning patches, grey hair or to thicken your hairline. It’s available in six shades: black, dark brown, darker medium brown, medium brown, light brown, blonde. Depending on the shade it costs between 9 and 12 Euros.
The packaging of the product is similar to make up powder. It’s a round shaped transparent container what makes it quite easy to transport anywhere. It contains around 12g of the powder as well as a sponge which can be used to apply the powder. I recommend using the sponge over a brush as it gives you the chance to apply with a bit more pressure without loosing too much product.
The concealer is water-resistant but will eventually come off when washing your hair with shampoo. The colour you see below is medium-brown.
These are the ingredients: Talc, Kaolin, Mica, Pentaerythrityl Tetraisostearate, Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate, Ethylhexyl Stearate, Isocetyl Stearoyl Stearate, Titanium Dioxide, CI 77499, Phenoxyethanol, Dimethicone, Caprylyl Glycol (+/-) CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77746
Below I put in a before and after photo. The more time and effort you put into applying the shader the better. Like mentioned above it’s best to use the sponge that comes with it. It definitely makes the hairline more dense and give me more confidence. I prefer the powder over hair fibre as it’s much easier and less messy to apply. You can see an immediate effect. Thanks to this product I can wear high ponytails again and feel much more comfortable having my hair tied back.
The powder doesn’t dry out my hair or scalp. I’ve been using it over year now and still got some product left. If used on a daily basis I think it will last 2-3 months. I usually wash my hair every three to four days. I had to reapply sometimes but the powder never really fully disappeared.
All in all I can recommend trying the Fidentia hair shader as it’s really helpful to thicken the hairline or use it when tying your hair back.
