Popped in to see Damon at the Manchester clinic to have my treatment assessed and everything went well and it’s still looking good.
However he mentioned my head was quite shiny. He recommended some Mattifying Shine Control Papers from Superdrug. They are little but of paper which absorbs the oil which helps the shine.
They are no miracle cure for shine but they help so much and improves the look of the treatment, especially when you are out and about.
I use a Mattifying gel which works good but the oil comes through again within a couple of hours. These papers help after that and are quite cheap.29/10/2014 at 6:45 pm #30256markybParticipant
Never seen them before
I was in with Damon for a check up 3 week ago and he showed me what he was using
Use it with a brush
But there is a flesh coloured talc that’s on the market
Also normal talc will cut down and shine29/10/2014 at 6:52 pm #30257m41Participant
Do you use that Matte Foundation Markyb?
Any good?29/10/2014 at 10:00 pm #30259markybParticipant
yes i got some
its only 3.99 plus around £3 to £4 for a brush
it does work , not really took much notice how long .
damon seemed to rate it,
Im going to order the flesh coloured talc to compare.
also a bit of normal talc will help keep shine down
i sometime dab scalp with kitchen roll if i see any bad shine. this also seems to to soak it up
i think the trick is to try various products to see what works for you
the matt foundation is from boots / super drug01/12/2014 at 7:56 am #30319Benjamin KramerParticipant
I was advised by Damon that he uses both the above. I can’t use them for a few weeks whilst my treatment settles but I have bought them both.28/12/2014 at 8:40 am #30395GreenGrassParticipant
Thanks for this information. I have bought these products and they do help.03/01/2015 at 7:46 pm #30399bluemoviebazParticipant
Everbodys probably different but the best for me by far is flesh coloured talc06/01/2015 at 9:15 pm #30413DoctorMartenParticipant
I have been trying many different solutions for shine and the best I have found is the Pinaud skin coloured Talc. Also the Matte stuff above is very good also.21/02/2015 at 1:16 am #30751g07Participant
M41 liking your results. Im having my treatment done with Damon in around 5 weeks. Do you think we could we could meet up for a beer in or around Manchester? Cheers21/03/2015 at 8:00 pm #31070Paddy OParticipant
Must try some of these.
Thanks for posting.21/03/2015 at 9:14 pm #31072Geordie80Participant
Don’t get too worried about head shine. Even shaved heads of full hair shine.30/03/2015 at 9:12 am #31140Benjamin KramerParticipant
I agree Geordie80 that shine is just the way it is.
Think tho of you can matte the shine a little the
the treatment looks even better.31/03/2015 at 8:42 am #31148CheadleBoyParticipant
Have been using both these products and they are very good.
Had a problem knowing how much of the matte foundation to put on but thanks to the help of the missus have got it to a T now. Not too much is the way and it gives a nice matte finish.
