We are continuing our series this month, testing those "As Seen on TV" products. This time around, Nancy Naeve is checking out Miracle Hair to see if it can hide your bald spot.
We are testing out Miracle Hair. It's supposed to grow hair in 30 seconds. Here's what the commercial says;
"Just sprinkle Miracle Hair on the thin or balding areas you want to cover up and you'll have the appearance of a full head of hair. Plus dark or gray roots that appear between salon visits are no match for Miracle Hair...." commercial announcer said.
I enlisted the help of one of my best friends at work, Jeff Cleland, the assignment manager and assistant news director. He is also follicly challenged and always wears a hat but he promised he would see if this works.
First we'll wrap him in his Mickey Mouse towel, turn him sideways. I've never seen your hair "did" before Jeff. We are supposed to sprinkle it on the bald spots, the color is brown (they have several different colors) and it's supposed to adhere to the fibers of your hair.
"Salt and pepper," Jeff said.
We pat it in.
"Are you supposed to pat it," Jeff questioned.
I am supposed to do. I kinda like it. You can use it 30 different times.
"I like my hair the way it is Nancy," Jeff said.
(Nancy starts applying the product to the receding part of his hair on his forehead)
"Is it the same color?" Jeff said.
I don't like it thee. We are just going to keep in the back where there's hair. So the consensus is it doesn't work in the front, but where your hair is in the back, it covers up the bald spot. I kinda think it works. I do. (Jeff shakes his head no)
Nancy has to admit that while it might have "looked" good it wasn't good. You could blow the hair sprinkles out with a big exhale and if you ran your hands through your hair, your hands would be covered in black. It looks good for the 30 seconds it took to put on, but didn't work for the day.
