    Well, I did more research and even though its $47 bucks, I feel that there has been more than enough positive feedback to give it a shot.

    So I ordered it in medium brown. Cant wait till my disc gets here !

    Dermatch is good stuff. Looks like i have twice as much hair on top when using it. Put it on dry and dont use very much.

    Default itchy scalp

    Does anybody else get an itchy scalp when using toppik, even though you wash it off in the evening ?

    I dont have much experience with it yet. It never seemed itchy to me but I haven't had it long.

    Absolutely. One of the reasons I decided to stop with the concealers and shave my head was the constant itching and irritation. That said I have since realized that it was an issue of dry scalp. If you apply it each morning and remove it in the evening be sure to use ample amounts of moisturizer. This may help.

    I never got an itchy scalp from Toppik when I was using it.

    Default a bit of clarification

    I am just guessing but I was probably using far more than you were. I used to apply a layer of couvre first, comb my hair forward, and then apply the toppik. I must have had a half pound of junk in my hair on a daily basis. When I first began with the toppik I was living in a northern, cool climate. It made things a lot easier. I then moved to S. Florida and things began to become really sticky (figuratively and literally). So, to be absolutely honest I do not recall the toppik being a cause of irritation or itching in the very beginning. As the years passed and I had to use more (and moved from a cool climate to a hot, humid one) irritation especially in the form of itching became an issue. It became so much of an issue that I had to stop. I still wish every day that I could go back to toppik or a combination of dermatch/couvre with toppik but I have just gone too thin on top now. It is unfortunate. Toppik is like magic.

    I am thinking of getting some DermMatch however I cut my hair short at 1mm, I don't have any bald spots what so ever just general thinning, would it be worth using?

    If you can match your color well, it can really do wonders. You can also try one of the Keratin fiber products. like Nanogen or Toppik. You have to experiment with the stuff before you go out into the world, but these products can really make your hair look great if applied properly.

    Aquamatch from Nanogen is the best alternative for Dermmatch. Easy to use and water resistant.
