Struggling to Manage Your Roots? These Cover-Up Products Should Do the Trick

Whether you’re battling with greys or your natural brunette strands are wreaking havoc with your blonde, a huge number of us are about to embark on a tumultuous journey with our roots. And if box dye just isn’t an option (it should always be a last resort), finding different ways to disguise a dodgy root situation can often prove tricky. From experimenting with interesting up-dos to smothering dark streaks with talc, at some point in our lives, we have all gone to extreme lengths in a bid to blend hair regrowth.

But what if I told you it didn’t have to be so hard? In fact, temporarily covering up your roots at home couldn’t be easier. Without dyes, bleach or even toner, root concealers and cover-ups provide the ultimate quick fix. By dispersing powdered pigment (either with a spray product or with a brush) through affected areas, you can minimise the appearance of bold, contrasting roots in a matter of seconds. And, while I by no means promise they will sort the problem completely, they certainly do a stand-up job at blending roots and minimising their appearance.
