Making it to the hair salon every month can be impossible, especially when juggling a busy schedule. Here are some easy ways to cover up your stubborn roots until you find time to schedule an appointment!
One of the quickest ways to cover up roots on the go is to apply a volumizing dry shampoo to your hair. This does not change the color of the roots but allows for the roots to be covered by the rest of your hair to disguise the undesired pieces. Make-up Valley provides a list of different volumizing dry shampoos on the market! (Best for highlights or coloring)
Root touch up Pen:
Apply a few temporary streaks with a touch-up pen. Pick a pen color that matches your highlights. Then, after drying your hair, apply the pen to your roots. This usually lasts until the next time you wash your hair! (Best for highlights)
Applying a non-permanent dye to the roots will help cover those unwanted hair pieces. Pick a color that is close in shade to the rest of your hair and use a coloring brush to apply the dye to the roots. You can also apply a small amount to already colored hair to blend in the shade so your roots do not stand out as much. Remember to always test a small amount on a strand of hair to make sure it is the color you are looking for and also to prevent any reactions! Consumer Search gives a full report on the benefits of using non-permanent colors! (Best for colored)
Cover with Make-up
Make up can come in handy for stubborn roots that you need to quickly cover up! Wikihow teaches you how to make and apply your own hair coverage! (Best for colored hair)
The Color Wand
The color wand is an easy application and temporally covers unwanted roots. It can be purchased at the store and is found in a tube-like bottle (like mascara). When picking out your color always go a shade lighter since you are applying to your roots! You do not want your roots to be darker than the rest of your hair color! (Best for highlights or colored hair)
Do it yourself!
Whether you need to touch up highlights or add some new color to your roots, doing it at home can actually be inexpensive, quick and easy! All beauty supply stores sell the same kind of dye/bleach hair salons use! For a temporary cover-up (until your roots get out of control) purchase a color identical to the one your hair stylist uses. For highlights apply the bleach/color to a few strands, fold it in tin-foil and apply heat to it for a quicker process! (Best for highlights)
Using these simple solutions will help you save money and time by going to the hair salon!
