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.

Not worth the price

I was really excited to try this product, especially since it claims to have no transfer once dried, this unfortunately isn't true. You can't touch your hair without the colour transferring and it left a thick film on my hair. For the price I expected more, it is also a very small can that ran out way too quickly. Disappointing all round.

Saved me from needing my regrowth done

Wow. Just applied it for the first time this morning following the Youtube video instructions to hold the hair down firmly on the scalp, load the small brush with the powder and then apply to the hair using the short side of the brush, then forgot about it. Came back home, saw myself in the mirror and it looks like I've had my regrowth done - amazing.

The powder itself looks like eye...
