Hi jbravo,

the hair is probably too dark to scan. Lines in your scan are result of a movement.
Body should be prefectly still for a good scan. You can make a 3D selfies, try to lean your head on something, maybe a wall.

There is a hairspray that you can use like a coating spray for objects. I forgot it´s name. But it vanish after some time. You need just a thin layer of this spray, or try to play with camera exposure, until the hair is visible to the scanner.

Not hair spray but spray shampoo. It goes on white and of course washes out. Still a bit messy though. Better yet but a bit more work, use spray in hair color (available at costume or make up shops). I recommend gray as to not make the contrast between the skin and hair so great as to cause exposure problems.

Dear drndadoo , are talking about MAGNAFLUX SKD-S2 spray?
if yes, i wouldn't suggest to use that because the solvent is something that might not be good for hair.
Have anybody got any other ideas?
Thanks

I was thinking on dry shampoo, I saw that once but I am not sure about the name. So, you just have to spray it on your hair and after scanning is done you can just brush your hair, it will be clean :)
