Works well but few flaws
I have balding/thinning areas in my hair from medications so my scalp shows more than spot next to it so I use the powder to fill that in. It works well but makes your hair feel dirty and when you touch it, the color is on your hands. Also, if I'm caught in rain, it runs down my forehead. But I cant find another product that covers like this does. So I'm stuck.

Great stuff, a blessing that I found this product. In my 60's and my hair is thinning. One thing I can tell you is if I don't use this people stare at the top of my head where my hair is thinnest, when I do use it no one stares. It looks natural. It does not smell. It stays on until I shampoo. It does not stain but if you flip a little onto your shirt it might smudge but will wash out in the laundry. Does not come off on your pillow. The brushes are hit and miss - sometimes there is one that doesn't hold up, but big deal. The compact is a little fancy, I never use the mirror. I use dark blonde mixed with a little salt and pepper for my gray hair that is dyed med ash brown. I love it. Please don't change or discontinue it.

i would buy this product again and again
I've used this product for the longest time and I'm very happy that it was made for women like me who need to cover graying and thinning hair.

Not bad, only a couple issues
I like this product, with some reservations. It is an improvement over crayons, "magic markers" and liquid root touch ups, but it doesn't last between shampooings - you have to add more every morning as it mostly wears off during the night. It's not that likely that the few colors offered will perfectly match your hair color (certainly not mine, anyway), which means that you will have to buy a minimum of 2 colors to mix together to get it right, which is pretty pricey for the amount they're asking. It's much cheaper to get regular permanent hair dye type root touch ups which never wear off. But those are time consuming to apply, and this powder is a good quickie alternative. For the sale price I'm willing to get my "2nd" color to see if I can get a closer match.

Not loading on brush
I have been using this product for several years and have always been a satisfied customer. This last order, the product is not loading on the brush. I have to scrape the powder with the end of the brush to loosen, thereby, using much more than usual. Has the product changed in the manufacturing process?

Product has fallen in quality
I've used this product successfully for years. My latest purchase arrived yesterday. I'm no grayer than I was when I finished the contents of my last compact a few days ago. The first thing I noticed was that I required much more powder to cover my roots than with my last compact, and a little grey still showed through. The powder also seemed a little messier; not holding together as well in the compact, so some was wasted. Lastly, when I was finished, I noticed short hairs all over the counter. I have long hair, but it was so weird-looking, I forgot and yelled, "OMG! My hair is falling out!" Then I realized the brush was shedding horribly. I finally threw it away and used my old brushes. Are the manufacturers cutting corners, since Joan passed away? If this wasn't just a bad batch, I might have to switch to another brand. Anyone else notice a diminished quality? Thank you.

Doesn't work for lighter hair
I ordered the product thinking that it might be good for between my hair lightening appointments. I ordered the lightest color but I have found that it doesn't lighten roots that are darker than your current hair color. Unfortunately the product won't work for me. When I read existing reviews, one customer mentioned that it works well on her eyebrows. I will try the product for that use so its not wasted.

bad hair day
I had a bad experience my hair started fall out I was covering gray and sparse spots. I used it every day in the morning the more I covered the more I used. I went to the doctor she told me to stop using it. It covered okay pretty soon I was pretty much covering half my head. This product works okay but my hear really itched.I would recommed it use with caution.

Saw Joan on TV several years ago advertising this, didn't need it then, but need it now. So glad it's still available, even though our dear Joan is gone. I love her for creating this product to help us age as gracefully as possible.
Anita P on Apr 4, 2019
Makes my hair look fuller. It is kind of messy - the powder seems to get all over the bathroom and if you (or anyone else) rub your head it comes off on your hands!

I have very thin hair on top and this helps to cover scalp making it less embarrassing to go out in public.
D C on Feb 11, 2019
This product helps me conceal my thinning areas around my edges, Honestly without this product, I would never go outside. This product is such a necessity in my life and I am always so afraid that this product would be taken off of the market and I would be forced to buy something else that does not cover as well. This is a Must Have for me. Thank You Joan Rivers (May you rest in peace).

The last color i recieved was medium which I would like to order again. Idon't see as a choice in you choices at this time?
Wilma H on Jan 31, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, we do not offer this item in a "medium" shade. The available colors are red, salt and pepper, blonde, brunette, white and light blonde. We hope this information will be of help to you.
i wash my hair only two or three times per week and im concerned that the product may clog hair follicles?
jeannette b on Mar 16, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I would not be without this product. I wash my hair every other day or go even longer between shampoos and have no problems. It's just a powder that gives the illusion of more hair in thin spots. You will most likely have to touch it up each day but it is a great product. I have never noticed it on my pillow cases but it is a temporary product. I will never NOT have a backup in my bathroom drawer. It's also the first thing I pack when I travel. I may forget my meds, but not my hair cheat powder.
Is it safe for pregnant women to use?

Is it better to get darker or lighter than hair color? I am brunette with some gray. Don't know if brunetter or salt and pepper would look most natural
A shopper on Sep 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It depends on the percentage of gray in your hair and what color you want people to see. I have very little gray, so I use the brunette and it blends so well that you can't tell. I have thinning hair in one spot and this powder fills it in completely. I recommend the brunette, which is dark but when blended will look natural.
what if your hair gets wet?
Mechelle S on May 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It stays on. It and only comes off when you shampoo it off. I have used it for years Mechelle and love it. In the beginning when I first started using this I found the residue on my pillow. When I learned that a little really does go a long way problem solved. I hope this helps!
Talc was not safe is it now safe in Joan river great hair day?
A shopper on May 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have been using this product for many years and have never had a problem. Perhaps we are talking about two different types of "Talc" ... on your head vs other parts of your body? I am not sure but honestly, it sits on your scalp and washes off when you wash your hair. I am sorry I cannot be more specific but I certainly hope this helps.
Do you test on animals?
chris on Nov 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. From what we can see the Joan Rivers Great Hair Day fill-in powder is not tested on animals. We hope this information will be of help to you.
I usually use gels or mousse to style my hair? Also, I use a lot of hair spray since I have very thin hair. Can this product be used with both? Alicia
A shopper on Jun 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can use the fill-in powder after applying mousse and or gel and drying the hair. Use hairspray after the fill-in powder and styling. It is great!
I have dark blonde hair that is thinning in the front. I've used the Dark Blonde shade, and it is too dark, being basically brown. It is obvious on the scalp. Is the Light Blonde shade more of a taupe color, akin to dark blonde? or is it yellowish, which would not be helpful.
A shopper on Apr 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The color I use is called "Blonde" which is what I think you are referring to as "Dark Blonde." I have dark brown hair with highlights, and it works well for me. I have not actually used the Light Blonde, but if your hair is a true dark blonde, I think it would work well for you. The colors are usually a little darker than their name suggests.
My hair is a white grey. Would white work best or light blonde? I want my part to look filled in like the picture.
Carol L on Jan 16, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Blonde is not your hair color ... I am brunette with white roots and LOVE the product between color appointments during that 3rd week after... Use the grey or the color that best matches the rest if your hair. It's just a product to use for a very brief time between hair color sessions so roots are not seen.
A shopper on Feb 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It might be your screen color. Sometimes you don't see the TRUE color of something on the computer. But, if it's any help... it looks brunette on my screen. The "salt & pepper" looks gray. I was worried about the blonde shade looking too dark... but, amazingly it blends in. Go lightly at first.... and add more if it's not as much color as you'd like.
I have reddish brown hair not sure what color to use. I am afraid that the brunette is too dark and the red is to light?
Bonnie P on Oct 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I use the blond. Believe it or not, it goes with most hair colors. It is darker than you think and blends well. I too have reddish hair. Just make sure you blend it well with your fingertips. The red is actually not light but the blond works better. I bought three colors, red, blond and light blond. As I said, the blond is the best. Good Luck.
