Balding is a problem that often makes recipients uncomfortable with themselves and their appearance. Baldness is largely a genetic trait, so there’s not much you can do to prevent it from occurring. You can attempt to combat the problem with the use of prescription medications and creams once the hair loss starts. If you can’t stop the hair loss, focus on the appearance of the bald area. Getting an even complexion on your bald head helps you regain self-esteem by eliminating blemishes that you find unflattering.
Things You'll Need
Tan your bald spot by using a tanning facility or staying in the sun for 30 minutes each day. While tanning is not considered healthy for the skin and should be minimized, it will maintain an even color on your bald head by eliminating the patches of pale skin.
Give the bald area a uniform appearance by applying moisturizer to prevent or repair dry skin that leads to redness, flaking or peeling.
Utilize concealers on any stubborn spots such as moles or freckles in the balding area. Concealers cover the blemishes and blend in with the surround skin, giving your bald head an even complexion. Apply the concealer each morning to maintain your desired complexion.
Shave your head daily or every other day to remove any stubble that negatively affects your bald spot’s appearance.
Consult a dermatologist about any lumps, scars or other blemishes that you want permanently removed. Such procedures usually take less than an hour and are not invasive in nature.
