Default Joan Rivers' "Great Hair Day"

Has anyone tried this? If so, what are the ingredients and how well did it work for you?

Thanks!

I see you never got any replies. I just ordered it from QVC. If you look for it on QVC they have reviews. I've shopped with them for years and years and I think they have the best reviews I have ever seen on any product of any kind. Will try to remember to come back here and write a review on it. If you buy it through QVC you have 30 days to return it-no questions asked. I've never had a problem returning stuff.

Anytime you wanna know the ingredients to something, just do a Google with the product name and the word "ingredients" and you'll get hits.

I got a hit in the first five entries which led to: http://www.qvc.com/qic/qvcapp.aspx/v...-Powder-wBrush

First ingredient, talc. Includes, mica.

Basically, it's a water-resistant eyeshadow/eyebrow powder for your scalp. Seriously, that's how it looks, like eyebrow powder.

It maybe is resistant to rubbing off actual scalp skin, but I found it rubbed off VERY EASILY from hair strands, so application should target only the scalp (pull hair well out of the brush's way).

I only patch tested it. I bought it not for everyday use, but because hubby and I will be taking professional pics later this year or early next year (when it's cooler, basically) and I don't want any scalp show-through. I'm keeping it just for that purpose, not for daily use. Maybe if I had an important interview or very fancy dress-up affair I would consider it.

I would test any very dark waterproof eyeshadow in a matching hair shade (like a MAC or good quality one) and see how that works for you. Then you could use it on eyes and head. Eye areas are sensitive, so those products are actually gentler to skin than items planned for other parts of face/head. If you have a stiff-angled brush, that should work (it should have softness and stiffness and be thin and angled enough to work on parts).

I suspect that what gave the hairdresser the idea was to use eyebrow powder on celebrity hairlines (since eyebrow powders come in colors to match hair types). The fact that she sells eyebrow powder, too, makes me think it's the same dang thing.

The brush is useful...but I suspect a similar brush can be found if one searches. Still, the brush and eyebrow powder combo is not outrageous at 28 bucks (just don't join the club), if you get it, just go get it from Soft Surroundings. Don't get suckered into automatic reorders.

But really, just experiment with a good quality hair-matching shade of eyebrow powder or eyeshadow. Eyebrow powders are made to adhere to skin that has hair around it and to be relatively rubproof.Same deal.

I have brown-black hair (shoots off red-brown in sunlight, looks very dark indoors, see my avatar or fotki). The brunette was fine for my hair and did darken the paler scalp showthrough. But the rub-off factor was annoying. For someone who never touches their hair and doesn't sweat much, fine. And don't wear white sleeves that you might rub against hair/hairline.

I got some recently. You have to use a lot to get the coverage. I agree, I think it's just waterproof brow powder. I got brow stuff too and it seems to be the same stuff. It has worked pretty good at covering up my grey at the hairline and parts. I'm waiting to color my hair next week. I won't order it again.

Yep. Brow powder.

I may actually try it next time I wanna dramatize my thin eyebrows. Although since I started taking biotin, my baldy eyebrow patches are filling in.

I don't see myself finishing the amount I got of JRGHD, but if I ever do use it enough to run out, I'll just keep the brush and use brunette/dark eyebrow powder. I won't reorder, either.

Interesting that you're taking biotin and your eyebrow patches are filling in~~~how much do you take?

I was hoping to maximize regrowth with MSM (I hear MSM cream does the same for eyebrows), but I had a reaction to MSM.

On the bad side, ALL my facial hair has increased, so I'm plucking more often....
