Hair root cover-up – which is best for you?

We are all in the same boat, our roots are outgrown and we can’t get to a salon!  We need a product that will cover our roots completely until it’s safe to go back out into the world.

With so many root touch-up products on the market today it can get very confusing on which application and product is best for you.

I have to dye my roots every 2-3 weeks.  My hair grows so fast (it gets on my nerves) and I can wake up one day without warning and my roots are an inch long.

I have a considerable amount of grey on the crown of my head so I cannot get away with not coloring my roots often.

When I started looking for a root touch up product I asked several professional stylists who all had different opinions of what works best.

I honestly feel you have to try a few before you find one that works best for your hair color and textur

I have tried them all from crayons to powders to sprays to marker types.  I can honestly say price and brand did not make a difference. I was more than willing to spend whatever it took to hide my roots in between coloring.

I tried professional brands and drug store brands over the years in the form of sprays, powders, crayons and I was quite disappointed in many of them.

Because my dye color is blond, I felt it was much more difficult to find a product that would cover my grey and look “natural” than if I was a brunette.

My friend Linda, a professional stylist for over 40 years, suggested I purchase a powder type product called “Conceal” by Eufora (only sold in salons) which as you can see below is a brush on type powder.  I wasn’t a fan of this product at all.  Very expensive ($39.00) and I didn’t feel it did a very good job of covering my grey without a caked-up powder look.

Next I tried “Color Stick” by Bumble and Bumble, which my daughter in law Ariel recommended, also a professional stylist.  Also pretty expensive, about $26.00 sold at salons and available at Sephora.  Wasn’t a big fan of this either.  Very difficult to get it to stick to my hair.  I had to pick up my hair and try to color it with the crayon.  Didn’t work out well for me.

 

 

Then I tried L’Oreal’s Magic Root Cover Up spray – bingo!!!   This product for the money is amazing.  I buy two colors and combine them.  I purchase a darker shade (Dark Blond) and spray that first, and then apply a lighter shade (Light To Medium Blond) on top of that.  This creates a “highlight” affect on my roots and gets me through until my daughter in law can color my roots properly.  This product sells for about $10.00 or less and can be ordered from Amazon.  It comes in a variety of colors to match most hair colors.  Don’t be afraid to buy two and mix them together like I do.  You have to find the right formula for your hair color.
