    Default Can You Still Use Concealers While Trying To Regrow Hair?

    A quick question - if I use products that are designed to regrow hair, can I still use hair fibres or powder concealers in the meantime, or do you have to stop using these in order to let the hair folicles 'breath' and allow hair to regrow? I'm thinking of trying stuff to regrow my hair, but what do I do in the meantime until it grows back? Obviously I can't walk around with my hair loss visibly on display.

    yes. Your hair doesn't breath! Thats what your lungs are for. Blood carries the oxygen to your hair follicules! Hate to break it to you but the chance that you are going to grow back a significant amount of hair is pretty damn slim. Most treatments typically slow or halt hair loss, if your lucky you will get some minor growth, if your very very luck you will get significant growth. So yes you can use concealers, just be careful as they can become addictive and you will become dependent on them. they can also be a bit tricky in learning to use them.

    I'm doing it and it's no problem as long as you wait some time until (in my case Minoxidil) is absorbed and not apply it right after that.

    No issue at all. Just be sure to wash hair well.

    One thing is that they might cloak up your follicles so the only thing you should make sure is that you only use your (I guess) minoxidil if you washed the concealer out and only apply your concealer when your minoxodil is absorbed (if you use something like foam it only takes a few minutes).
