10 Root Touch Up Products To Help Keep Your Greys At Bay

With salon visits now on hold, we all need something to freshen our hair up right now. Check out our round-up of these root-masking hair heroes

Just because we’re unable to get to the hairdressers, it doesn’t mean our hair has to stop looking its best. With many of us battling overgrown roots, there are products out there that will give a root cover up. Whether you want something temporary of more permanent, there’s a selection of products that will do the job with the minimum of fuss.

Give roots the boot with R&Co Bright Shadows Root Touch-Up Spray, £25. This breakthrough root touch-up instantly covers regrowth, greys or otherwise, between colour appointments. Available in seven shades ranging from Black to Red, the special formula means there’s no stickiness, dustiness, or transfer. It features a target actuator for mess- free application, providing coverage that lasts until the next shampoo.

Knight & Wilson Essential Root Touch-Up Kit (£6) offers home root maintenance made easy and is available in 25 permanent shades. The kit is made for roots at the front part of the hair and of course if there’s any dye left over you can use it to zap other greys. Working out at £2 per application, the price-friendly kit comes with a full size tube of colourant, three sachets of developer, a tinting brush and full instructions. The minimal letter-box friendly packaging that the kit comes in, ticks the box for both hassle-free delivery and less waste.

It’s a pity that the Josh Wood Root Touch Up Blending Brush (£19), is a limited edition range as the soft brush applicator is the nicest we’ve handled and won’t ‘flick’ the colour about like those tint brushes tend to do. Darker Brown is the darkest shade offered online as they’ve now sold out of Black. The Blending Brush is able to cover larger areas of regrowth with a full coverage finish that lasts up to three shampoos. The temporary colour should be applied to wet or damp hair and blowdried to set colour in place.

Alterna 2 Minute Touch Up, £9.99

When our BBH tester tried Alterna Stylist 2 Minute Touch Up (£9) she commented, ‘I’ve got a sprinkling of greys at the roots that make my hair look dusty, this covered them beautifully.’ The temporary root concealer is available in four shades Blonde, Light Brown, Dark Brown and Black. You still might be able to find the product on Amazon.co.uk

Wow Root Cover Up (£28.50) comes in a sleek compact and is water resistant to last in between shampoos. It’s like eye shadow for your hair; the two-sided brush is good for applying the powder to large and smaller areas and is perfect for applying colour onto natural afro textured hair as you have control and can build up colour. You can even swim in it.

Remember back in day when black women used to use mascara to cover up their frontal greys? Well Amirose have made a larger version of the mascara wand to cover a bigger area. The Amirose Hair Mascara (£9.95) is a semi-permanent solution for grey growth. Probably best on silkier and straighter hair textures as the mascara brush bristles can snag on natural texture afro hair.
