Root Touch Up – A Quick and Easy Way to Cover Your Roots Between Salon Visits

In a perfect world, your roots would grow in between salon visits and at-home hair color sessions in a way that blends seamlessly with your previous dye job. But if you have busy life schedules or are not ready to commit to a full DIY, root touch-up products are a great way to camouflage those tell-tale strands between salon visits, suggests hair colorist David Fitzsimmons.

Is it OK to touch up roots every week?

There are many different root touch up tips options for you to choose from, so you’ll want to find one that works best with your hair type and style. Some are powder-based (like AGEbeautiful Root Touch Up Spray), others are liquid-based, and some come in a stick form for easy application.

If you’re looking for an on-the-go option to temporarily conceal your grays between salon appointments, opt for a product that has a one-time use formula and can be washed off easily with shampoo, recommends stylist Alex Tabloff. Oribe’s quick-drying root touch-up spray, for example, contains rice starch and can double as a dry shampoo, too.

Regardless of your preferred method, make sure to always choose a root color that’s one shade lighter than your current haircolor, advises Garnier. Grey strands naturally lighten in color, so choosing the wrong shade will make your roots look darker than the rest of your hair.

A spray-on root touch up will also help you keep your hair looking flawless and shiny all day long, so you can step out the door confidently. These sprays are easy to apply, last a long time, and don’t damage your hair.
