Walking out of the salon with a fresh dye job is one of the best feelings ever. A shiny new coat for your mane is like an instant confidence boost and can put you in a seriously happy mood. But sadly, all good things come to an end—and why does it always feel like, before you know it, your gray roots are showing again? Whether you have a colorist who you visit on the regular or you’re a DIY dyer, consistently having to touch up your hair color when your roots grow in takes serious dedication (and money). The good news is there is a super-simple way to mask your gray roots in between dye jobs.
Why You Should Use a Root Cover Up Spray for Gray Roots
If you have a date night planned or you’re going to happy hour with your friends after work, toss a root cover up spray in your purse. It’s a convenient product to temporarily help hide gray roots until you have time to color your hair again.
How to Find the Right Root Cover Up for Your Hair Color
When using a root cover up, the last thing you want is two-toned hair color. It’s safe to say you’d like your roots and your lengths to look seamless. The L’Oréal Paris Root Cover Up comes in a variety of shades, so you can find one that closely matches your hue.
If you have blonde hair… try the root cover up in light to medium blonde or dark blonde.
If you have brown hair… try the root cover up in light golden brown, light brown, medium brown, or dark brown.
If you have red hair… try the root cover up in red.
If you have black hair… try the root cover up in black.
How to Use the L’Oréal Paris Root Cover Up
Ready to get to work? You can do it! This lightweight spray dries quickly, doesn’t smudge, won’t leave any sticky residue, and lasts one shampoo. To use, first shake the can. Then, hold it four to six inches from your hair and spray color onto new growth, letting your hair air dry for one minute. Finally, brush through your hair to blend in the color.
Hairstyles to Help Conceal Your Gray Roots
In addition to temporarily masking your roots with a root cover up spray, you can also rock a pretty hairstyle to hide them. Why not throw on a large headband—not only will this make it impossible for anyone to see your roots, but it’ll also keep your hair off your face. Plus, a sparkly headband can take your look from day to night. Another idea we love: Flip your hair to one side for a deep side part and create tousled waves using a curling wand for a soft, romantic feel. So simple, yet so chic. The best part is, no one will have a clue when your last color appointment was—in fact, we bet you’ll get tons of compliments on your pretty hairstyle!
