Reposted my favorites I contributed to an article for TheFashionSpot. As anyone who dyes their hair will tell you, there’s nothing quite as annoying as the pesky re-growth that starts to pop up a few weeks post-coloring. No matter whether it’s tell-tale grays showing on your brunette base, or dark hairs popping up on your platinum hue, roots are the first sign that it’s time to book your next salon visit.
But, what to do until then? You could totally rock your roots with pride or keep a hat on or you can reach for a temporary root touch-up. These convenient products do exactly that; cover your roots with color that lasts until your next shampoo. There are tinted sprays that are just as easy to use as dry shampoo, (get this charcoal one) natural-looking powders that blend in seamlessly, and solid sticks that make precise application a breeze. Best of all, the color they deliver will stay put, yet still wash out with plain ol’ shampoo, (loving LEGENDARY rn) so there’s none of the stress—or likelihood for potentially disastrous results—that comes with DIY hair color.

I've also included some fav color refresh shampoos+a great brunette masque when its the dead of summer and you cant get in to see your stylist-you're heading out on another tropical adventure but your bronde ends are now-nice and BRASSY. Try this cocoa masque to keep them hydrated and refreshed or this no orange shampoo from FANOLA. so. good. start shampooing, shave one leg and then rinse. If you shave the other-well lets just say you'll be looking more like your cute little grannyma with a nice link blue or purple bouffant instead of riri.
This no yellow shampoo by FANOLA is great for ice queens and cool toned blondes.
COLORWOW’s root cover up -is one of my favorite root concealers, that doesn't just cover greys and dark roots, but refreshes highlights, thickens and perfects thinning hairlines
I love Rita Hazan's root concealer touch-up spray. "it has buildable pigment depending on your hue that allows you to enhance dull color between stylists visits. its transfer-, weather- and sweat-proof and also comes in a cute aerosol can with a pinpoint actuator nozzle to get it exactly where you want it.” -
This one literally does it all- Style edit touch up spray instantly conceals grays or unwanted regrowth between salon visits. its sweat and rain resistant, but washes out with your next shampoo day. Save $24 and get this pack on overstock rn for a crazy great price. Normally $25 each and they have a three pack for $51.99.
