What is the best way for men to hide hair loss at the crown?
The first tip is to brush your hair back from the top of your head to cover your crown (see image below). Sounds simple, but most men don’t think to do this. This is not a comb-over. This is simply a different way to style your hair. This may involve growing the top mid section of your hair a little longer so it can be combed back. See this image of a male with longer hair at the crown.
Invest in a hand-held mirror. Use a hand-held mirror to see the back of your hair at the crown and ensure your hair is covering up the bald spot. Some men find that their hair grows in a circular direction at the crown (see image below) which makes it difficult to comb mid-section hair back over the crown. Hair fibres is a great way to cover up hair loss at the crown if this is the case. As is growing your hair a little longer (like image on the left). Don’t be tempted to go for a number one cut as this is the hardest hair style to cover up bald spots.
Shake in some hair building fibres like Nut Job™ for an instant result (see image below). Nut Job is a slightly electrostatic hair building fibre designed to cover up balding spots at the crown.
Nut Job Hair Building Fibres are made from natural cotton. The fibres have been designed to have a high cling factor using a slight electrostatic charge. They must be applied to clean dry hair and will stay in place in wind and rain and while playing sport or at the gym.
The below image shows a male with a double crown. His balding area is on both crowns and he has successfully covered up the hair loss with Nut Job™ Hair Fibres. Below is a before and after image using Nut Job Hair Fibres in Black.

Using your hand held mirror to get good visibility of the crown area, style your hair as usual, or comb some hair into the crown area. Do this with wet hair to get maximum staying power. Dry hair doesn’t move into a new position very well, so if you are changing the pattern of your hair style, you will need to do this to wet hair.
Wash hair and style it by combing your hair into a style that partially covers the balding crown. Dry hair with hair dryer for maximum effect of the hair fibres.
Shake in some Nut Job™ Hair Fibres onto the crown area (see image below).

Dry hair as usual or use a hair dryer. Once hair is completely dry, shake in some Nut Job hair building fibres.
Using your hands just pat in the hair fibres so they are encouraged to move down the hair shaft and not sit on top of the hair.

Nut Job™ is not made from keratin like most of the other kinds of hair fibres. Keratin is a chemical that is made in a laboratory to imitate the natural protein in hair. Unlike real hair, keratin products are water soluble and so the colour runs and the fibres lose their colour. If you sprinkle some keratin hair fibres into a glass of water you will see that the colour immediately leaches out and turns the water green!
Some blonde keratin hair product users comment that their hair actually looks like it turns green. Keratin Hair Fibres are derived from animal proteins and usually contain a large number of chemicals. Cotton Hair Fibres are made from the cotton plant and are low chemical, low irritant and vegan.
