Quick Fix : The Five-Minute Guide To Covering Your Roots

Getting a fresh new hair colour is one of the best feelings ever. A shiny new shade is an instant confidence boost and a major mood lifter. But unfortunately for anyone who colours their hair, nothing lasts forever; before you know it, your roots will be showing again. Learning how to cover grey hair on your own is a major life skill and one that will save you both time and money. 

Why You Should Use A Root Touch-Up Spray For Grey Roots

Unfortunately, it’s next to impossible to dye your hair the second you spot new growth. No one wants to live with grey roots for days or even weeks before there’s time for a total touch-up. When root regrowth appears and it’s impossible for you to turn to hair dye, there’s an easy fix that can help with any hair colour. A temporary root touch-up spray is best for hiding grey hairs at home. These root cover-up sprays are temporary, which means they will be gone as soon as you wash your hair.

How To Find The Best Colour To Hide Grey Hair

Covering up your roots on the go should be a no-brainer, which means that you want to avoid accidentally giving yourself two-toned hair. Unless you’re going for an on-trend statement look like pastel roots, it’s a pretty safe bet that most of us want the colour of our roots and lengths to be seamless. Thankfully, root touch-up sprays come in a wide variety of beautiful shades, so finding one that closely matches your own hair colour is easier than ever.

Blond hair: To cover up greys in blond hair, try L’Oréal Paris Magic Root Cover Up in Light to Medium Blonde or in Dark Blonde.

Brown hair: The best hair colour to cover grey for brunettes is L’Oréal Paris Magic Root Cover Up in Light Golden Brown, Light Brown, Medium Brown or Dark Brown. For a more targeted way to hide grey hair at the temples and scattered throughout the hair, try L’Oréal Paris Magic Root Precision in Medium Brown and in Dark Brown.

Black hair: Greys can be even more apparent when you have black hair, but that doesn’t mean they’re hard to hide. Try L’Oréal Paris Magic Root Cover Up in Black. This root touch-up spray will leave your black hair looking healthy and shiny. If your grey hair is concentrated at the temples, or if you only have a handful of grey strands sprinkled throughout your hair, you’ll get a more precise application with L’Oréal Paris Magic Root Precision in Black.
