3 ways to quickly cover up your roots

Is your grey hair showing up again at a really bad time? Take a deep breath and use the following quick, affordable and temporary dye solutions.

It can be hard (and expensive!) to book an appointment with a colourist every four weeks, as recommended. Work, family and budget constraints can get in the way. Thankfully, there are a few quick solutions for mornings when you can’t believe what you see in the mirror.

1

Hair Colour Stick

Similar to chalk used by kids to draw on sidewalks, these small sticks are easy and kind of fun to use! Wet them and colour out your roots. Let your hair dry and voilà! The chalk’s colour will stay in place until the next time you wash your hair.

Colour Spray

Even quicker to use than a hair colour stick, colour spray will remind you of how much you love dry shampoo. Using the same spraying technique, colour spray targets specific areas and is long-lasting and easy to use. After colouring your roots, use your favourite hair spray. This will make the temporary colour last, even if you play with your hair.

3

Coloured mascara

What’s better than a solution that reminds you of a product you already use and love? Inspired by mascaras, these applicators are easy to use and allow for precise application. When you use the mascara-like tip, it will apply a thin layer of dye to the exact area you want. Help the effect last by using the hairspray of your choice. The colour will dissolve the next time you wash your hair. A simple and effective way of covering your roots for a few more days.
