You need to create a whole section on this site entitled "Melvin helps make your hair look awesome"

concealers generally look bad in the hairline so its good advice (its like the equivalent of a girl wearing too much make-up). Although i have found you can experiment a bit by placing some toppik in the hairline and lightly blowdrying it away. some of it will stick and it can still look natural

Haha thanks man. I’ve gotten a lot of guys asking about concealer on the hairline. Makes sense that is the part most guys are self conscious about. Btw awesome tip👍🏼

You can use a pump applicator For toppik For hairline area.  However, if the transplant is failure and you have raised scar tissue and gaps, even toppik will look fake in that area.  Trust me on that.  I have to do a 45 min get ready regimen when i go out sometimes to avoid stares but i still get unnatural stares when folks are really close up due to toppik’s cake effect.  
 

Gosh it really sucks that I am going though this, i hope they can make a better formula that can look more natural.

Have you tried Hairatin? It's a bit pricier, but I believe it is a better product. Regardless of which you use it's tough to pull off on the hairline.

I have not tried either but i will give it a shot.  I will try dermatch and hairatin.  Hopefully, they at least shorten my one hour routine everytime.  For the time being, hope it kind of helps conceal the situation and damages to my scalp.  The awkward stares to my scalp are really are getting to me.  Thank you.

Well I hope they help. It's a sort of art that I have yet to master myself. But I have even used a combination of the two before. Dermmatch is makeup for the scalp (some guys can work magic with it, but I find it hard to pull off, possibly because I couldn't really get an identical shading), and the Hairatin seems to get the scalp and hold on to the hair a bit. Let us know how it works for you.

I don't use concealers much these days but I used to find that Dermmatch gave the most natural look to the hairline, while fibres worked great for the crown.
