Clever Ways to Cover Your Roots

14 Sep


If you highlight your hair, you know that it’s normal to see regrowth within 6-8 weeks.

Here are a few innovative ways to stretch out the time between color appointments, if you’re short on cash.

1. Switch your part. Change your part so that the line of root demarcation is obscured. You can do this by moving your part to the opposite side or creating a zigzag look.

2. Use dry shampoo. Applying dry shampoo in the appropriate color can soften dark roots. Cake Beauty Satin Sugar Refreshing Hair & Body Powder is available for lighter or darker hues. A DIY alternative to dry shampoo powder is a sprinkle or two of plain old baby powder.

3. Apply eye shadow. Swipe a dash of eye shadow to cover up roots that are a different color than the rest of your hair. Use a thin brush to cover individual strands.

4. Pump up the volume. Create volume at the root and brush hair backwards so that hair covers the root area. A root hairspray like Phytovolume Actif Maximizing Volume Spray can help get the job done.

5. Use a touch up pen. Try a highlighting pen specifically designed for root touch ups. Oscar Blandi Pronto Colore Root Touch-Up & Highlighting Pen gives your hair that freshly colored look until your next shampoo.
