MaarrApprrMayy – really, who knows where we are right now? Our days are seeming to blending into one right now – where we find ourselves checking the fridge 15 times a day, taking up some interesting hobbies and spending way more time than we should our most-loved streaming services. For some of us, we do know that time is passing by though by the ever-growing regrowth we see each time we look in the mirror.
While some of you might be embracing #isolife and are happy to wave the grey (or white, or other hideous regrowth colour) flag and let nature take it’s course, for others’ this is just as bad as missing happy hour at our favourite bars right now – devastating. Thankfully, there are some amazing at home root touch up products to let you become your own colourist until you’re back in the chair of your favourite stylist.
Depending on the type of root coverage you need, you can choose between quick-fix products that conceal roots in between washes or more long-term options that keep roots covered for up to three weeks at a time. Whether you prefer a quick and easy spray or a colour-correcting powder or gel, these products will keep you looking like you just left the salon – even when you haven’t been in weeks.
An absolute cult-favourite! This easy-to-use spray is loved by all colours, especially blondes, as it’s micro-fine pigments blend seamlessly with your natural (or artificial..blondes, we’re looking at you) shade. With only a few lights sprays, regrowth instantly disappears, while the quick-drying powder formula absorbs dirt and oil leaving hair feeling refreshed. The product will last on the hair until it is washed next and promises not to transfer onto clothing or pillow cases. It’s the perfect instant fix!
What we love: As the name says, this root cover sprays gives an ‘airbrushed effect’, miraculously leaving roots completely concealed. Plus, like all Oribe products the signature scent will leave a long-lasting essence to your hair.
Shades available: Black, Dark Brown, Light Brown, Blonde, Platinum & Red.
Whilst Christophe Robin Temporary Color Gels aren’t a ‘two-minute job and your done’, the results last a lot longer than a temporary spray or powder application. Christophe Robin Temporary Color Gels cover greys by surrounding the hair; then wash out evenly over shampoos – meaning you won’t get stuck in that vicious root touch up cycle The elegant shades perfectly match the colour for a natural and radiant result. Hair is luminous and looks fuller. Composed of 92% natural-origin ingredients and pure pigments, it is made without oxidants and ammonia (meaning that unwanted brassiness won’t occur).
What we love: As the gel fades evenly over time, you will see results for up to three weeks (depending on how often you wash your hair). The gentle ammonia-free formula is perfect for those who suffer with sensitivity or those who are looking for a non-aggressive colouring option. These gels are also ideal for men who are wanting to camouflage their greys without getting a helmet effect.
Shades available: Dark Chestnut, Light Chestnut, Light Blonde & Golden Blonde.
There’s a reason why Color Wow has one SIX Allure “Best of Beauty” Awards. Popular for it’s easy, instant and precise results, Color Wow Root Cover Up is a pressed-powder formulation – meaning you can evenly control the application. The reflective mineral powder gives a multidimensional effect and ensures that Root Cover Up looks totally natural. It has the texture and finish of real hair, and it’s available in eight shades so you can find your perfect match. The product is never stiff, sticky, or waxy like mascaras, crayons, and sprays. That means no odd shine on your scalp, or crumbly build up on your hair root.
What we love: The packaging means that Color Wow Root Cover Up neatly fits into your handbag or travel kit while the double sided applicator brush is great for achieving a precise application (you can use the smaller side on your brows, too). This product also works amazingly for those who are wanting to touch up their grown out highlights in between salon visits.
Shades Available: Platinum, Light Blonde, Dark Blonde, Light Brown, Medium Brown, Dark Brown, Black, Red.
