Shop Root Touch-Up


So: your hair has grown out and your next appointment isn’t quite close enough. You’re working with a fair amount of regrowth, and potentially a few more visible greys than you’d like. Action needs to be taken, and we have suggestions. Sure, these products aren’t quite as good as a visit to a real-life hairdresser, but they’re a solid interim measure, and they’re amazing for when you can’t get an appointment for whatever reason. Help is at hand.

 

How can I touch up my roots at home?

 

Good news: you’ve got options. If you’re after speed, opt for a spray like the Oribe Airbrush Root Touch Up Spray, or L'oreal Professionnel Hair Touch Up. Quick and easy to use, these products offer grey coverage and ease of use.

 

If you’re after a little more precision, try the ColorWOW Root Cover Up. This clever little compact comes with an eyeshadow-like powder, a mirror, and a double-ended brush. If you’re looking to work your highlights into your at-home root touch-up, this is the one for you. It comes in 8 shades, and will last through a workout or even a swim. Great stuff.

 

How long do root touch up products last?

 

More good news: root touch up sprays and powders tend to be resistant to water and sweat, so within reason, they’ll last until you wash your hair. Of course, if you’re swimming laps or running 15 kilometres a day, that’s a little different, but for everyday activities, you’ll get good wear out of them.

 

How should I use root touch up products?

 

Exact instructions vary by which product you’re working with, but as a general rule, you’ll want to hold each side of your part line taut as you apply the spray or powder, and brush away any excess after. Root touch up products can also be used to help your hairline look denser when you have it pulled back. Dream result.

Covers well

I like this product, it covers well. The only downfall is that my product only lasted 2 uses, not sure if this was a faulty batch or if it only lasts a couple of uses.

Better than expected

The colour matched my red hair much better than expected, however the can is tiny, I'm not sure it's very good value for money. I bought this to try to extend the time between trips to the salon but I'm uncertain it will actually save any money!
