My gratitude to Joan Rivers

About Me Beauty Conscious
Comments about Joan Rivers Great Hair Day® fill-in powder:
I no longer feel self-conscious about my thin hair. Great Hair Day is easy to use, but you may have to play around with it at first. If you don't like it getting on your hands, wear medical gloves while applying. I also pat it in after applying with the brush. I have scarring alopecia, which means my hair will never grow back. It is very thin, but using Great Hair Day creates a very good optical illusion. Also, it doesn't seem to cause any allergic reactions on my scalp as some other products have. It is the greatest.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Minimalist
It makes me feel so much more confident about my hair. People think I have thick hair. I don't!! Baby-fine and curly. I can't imagine not having one of these at home and one in my suitcase as I travel ALOT.

Joan Rivers Great Hair day Powder

My daughter got this product and shared it with me...it was buy one, get one free then. (another catalog)
By red on the head
Starting to thin around the temples. Very noticible when hair is pulled back. Product helped to hide the thinning hair. I am a redhead - light aulburn. When I opened the package I thought color was brown, but when blended into the hair it truly worked and was not noticible. If you are more of a strawberry blond or a carrothead, it would not work for you because it does have brown in it.
I will buy this product again.

I have used this product for over a year. I use this product after a shampoo to conceal thinning hair. It works well to cover gray roots in between monthly hair color applications. The blonde shade covers well on light brown hair. A minor drawback is some powder will rub off onto the pillowcase at night.
I would buy this product again and again

Great Great Hair Days
By Very Satisfied
from Long Island, NY
I have been using this for a year. I was very doubtful at first, my sister watched the infomercial and told me about it. My hair is very thin from medications and I have tried many shampoos, creams etc.,nothing helped. Soooo I tried. I was impressed to say the least. I use the brunette and have been asked by friends & relatives if I have a hair piece, what I used to thicken my hair and if I had a transplant. My hair style is short, so its not like I can maneuver my hair for cover. My biggest concern was perspiring, since because of meds in warm weather especially sweat drips from my head. It passed the sweat test last summer. It takes a little getting use to applying. At first I thought the brush was to small, it was blochy, but once you get the knack for your hair its great. Thank You Joan Rivers.

I have alopecia and I think this product is amazing. I would be wearing a hat all the time if I didn't have this powder. Love it!!!!!
Very good product
from Denver, CO
I've used this product for about 6 months now and it has really saved me. I don't feel self-conscious about my thinning hair anymore. It's easy to use and one compact has lasted over twice as long as advertised. The only downside is that if you scratch your head it gets under your fingernails and is IMPOSSIBLE to get out. (I have an itchy scalp because I also use a hair-growth product.) Using a tea tree oil shampoo helps with the itchiness, but it would be great to not have to worry about dirty fingernails! Otherwise, a very good product. Simply use as directed.

Too much whiz asnd not enough bang
By Sexy mom
This is not a very good product to use when you are trying to hide hair lose. It is not worth the money you have to pay for it.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
Great product - thank you Joan

I use this product for thinning hair due to chemotherapy and slow return growth due to needed medications which slow the growth.

Made all the difference!
This product CHANGED MY LIFE! I was so self-conscious of my thinning hair I did not want to even go to the grocery store anymore. Now I can look "normal" again! You just "dot" it on in the thin spots (on dry hair, not wet) working from the back - forward or "top down" and then blend a little (keep at least a half inch or so from your face). That's all you do! Then use hair spray, tease, or style, etc like you usually would. The powder stays on, have not had it come off unless I rub it, then i can see it on my fingertip. I am not sure how it would last if you swim with it though. Comes off slightly on pillow case but nothing major. It stays put pretty much until you shampoo it out. Also great at helping to cover gray roots between coloring as long as you don't put real close to your face. If your hair is light brown to medium brown... don't get the BROWN tone, it's too dark - get the BLONDE shade!The blonde shade is really a dark medium brown shade, and I don't mean light brown! Wish it came with a better quality brush (the bristles fall out).But other than that I love love love this product!It simply covers the shiny scalp places where your hair is thin so it looks like you have hair there. Matte eye shadow doesn't work as well as this does. If you're trying to decide whether to get it or not I say just go for it. It's not a miracle worker, but almost :)
from Modesto, CA
Love this product. What a great ides for thinning hair. Covers and looks natural. Very easy to use.
I wouldn't be without it
from San Diego, CA
This is a fabulous product. The long handled brush allows you to part your hair and then flip to the brush side to apply the powder. I always start from back to front because otherwise I find it doesn't look as natural. The color is meant to be darker than your hair, so don't expect it to "match." It looks better to have the scalp darker than your hair. Mine is a medium auburn. I always put the compact down on a tissue so that I don't have any powder residue on my counter. My aging hair is thinning on top, and this product not only covers my light colored scalp, which is now showing through my hair, but it covers the grey when I'm due for a color touch up. There's no mess on the pillow, and it lasts until I wash my hair.

TOO DARK, brush too flimsy
I got BRUNETTE which should be a medium brown but is JET BLACK! the brush bristles are way too soft and don't work well to apply. Should be more firm. Brush should also be wider. It's also misleading because this does NOT make your hair "fuller" it merely darkens any parts of your scalp that show through your thinning hair! Like if you applied brown eye shadow to your scalp! RETURNING IT!!! really Joan!

I WOULD PURCHASE THIS PRODUCT AGAIN
By Sophia the Grandma
from Chicago, Il
I use the product each time I wash and blow dry the hair. What's great about this product is that it REALLY WORKS. I just wish the brush was smaller. You don't need a such a large brush
