Keeping your hair color fresh and vibrant while avoiding unnatural, uneven roots is a tricky balancing act. Generally, your hair needs to be colored every four to twelve weeks.
Is root touch up less damaging?
However, if you can’t keep up with your schedule, root touch up before and after is an excellent solution to help stretch out salon visits and keep your color looking fresh. The trick is to find a product that instantly hides your roots and blends them seamlessly with your current hair color.
One of the best options is a mineral powder that doesn’t require any bleaching or dyeing to apply. The pigmented powder adapts to the existing color and binds to the hair fiber to give you the appearance of a natural-looking hue.
It’s also lightweight and non-toxic, so you don’t have to worry about it weighing your hair down or damaging the hair follicles. Plus, it comes in a range of shades so you can choose the right one for your complexion and hair texture.
The GH Beauty Lab testers loved how easy this root touch up powder was to use. They said it was weightless on the scalp and didn’t look cakey or flake after application, and that it’s perfect for covering grays and grown-out highlights.
Garnier Express Retouch is a temporary root concealer that’s available in 4 colors and can be applied anywhere you need coverage, like the roots, temples or wherever you see grays. It’s easy to carry in a purse and is transfer-resistant, so you can easily reapply if needed.
