Coloring your hair can be well worth it to obtain a stunning shade, but dealing with visible roots isn’t exactly one of the perks. It tends to go like this: You dye your hair and you’re obsessed with how fabulous your new hair color is—only for grown-out roots to crop up way too soon, leaving you stuck wearing a hat 24/7. Not quite the look you’re going for, right? Still, that shouldn’t scare you away from switching up your hair color. New growth may be a pain, but it doesn’t have to be the end of your color-changing career. We’ve gathered four tips for touching up your roots that will leave your hair looking gorgeous—without ever setting foot in a salon. Click through to find out how to touch up your roots at home.
Life isn’t always fair, so it should be no surprise when your roots become visible at the most inopportune times. Big event coming up? Suddenly your roots are showing. Hot date? You guessed it. When root regrowth appears at the last possible minute and there’s seemingly nothing left to be done for your locks, there’s a temporary fix. Root cover up sprays, like the L’Oréal Paris Magic Root Cover Up, can be sprayed directly onto new growth and partway through the length of your hair to hide roots—buying you some extra time until you can provide a more permanent solution. Available in shades of brown hair, blonde hair, red hair, and black hair, just spritz with the one that is close to your hair color and you can hide your roots until your next shampoo. Totally sneaky (in a good way)!
To truly stand out from the crowd, try spraying a rainbow hair color onto your roots with the L’Oréal Paris Colorista 1-Day Spray, which is available in a variety of shades such as silver, rose gold, and lavender. This temporary hair color spray lasts one shampoo. To use, shake the can well and spray it onto dry hair from 4-6 inches away. Wait a few minutes for the hair color dry completely.
If there’s an obvious response to unsightly roots, it would have to be this one—but let’s review it anyway. Once your roots make an appearance, it’s a sign that you need to refresh your color. Root cover ups and concealers can hold you over for a while, but eventually you may want to go ahead and dye your whole head of hair. Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be a major undertaking—it won’t even require leaving the comfort of your home. Break out an at-home hair color kit, such as the L’Oréal Paris Excellence Creme. We recommend keeping an extra box of your favorite at-home hair color kit on hand so that you can color at practically a moment’s notice.
Bold hair colors may be oh so trendy, but they’re unfortunately not new-growth friendly. That’s because if you dye your hair a drastic shade, it’s all too obvious when your hair starts to grow out. That is, unless you decide on ombré hair instead. Rather than have your new hue reach all the way to your roots, have it end a few inches below, with color focused on the ends of your strands. Since your hair won’t be dyed at the roots, the growing out phase is much less stressful. If you’re ready to make the move to ombré hair, give it a whirl with an at-home coloring kit. The L’Oréal Paris Féria Wild Ombré allows you customize your color, lightening lengths and ends to your satisfaction. (Be sure to take time to read up on How to Help Keep Ombré Looking Its Best.)
