I have noticeable scalp showing through my hair front and sides, which seemed to be worsening, so this is my first foray into disguising it. The dusky dark brown colour blends invisibly into my hair colour, but I apply it in a slightly differently way than recommended in the videos. My process is to wash hair, apply mousse, blow dry, apply initial hairspray and THEN sprinkle on the Boost n Blend, not parting or fingering the hair at all. When applying the product, I do tap the container directly against my skull where needed, but don't disturb the powder by trying to move it around. I then apply a final squirt of hairspray and walk away. The only further thing I do after a few minutes is bend over the sink and shake off any excess powder (which should be minimal because of the hairspray). My idea is to just apply enough powder to minimise and break up the extent of scalp showing, not to cover every last bit, which would look unnatural. Let's face it, normal hair shows some scalp through it! I'm very happy with this product and have recently bought a bulk amount.
