Quick Fix for Roots Between Salon Visits

Exactly how to hide new growth between visits.

Even if you never miss a salon appointment, chances are in the last weeks or days leading up to your trip to the salon you are sporting some visible roots. And, when your appointment is a single process to conceal those pesky greys, let's face it, visible roots can feel unbearable and can completely ruin your day. To make it through to your next appointment with confidence, we have collected a few tips and tricks to help you hide visible roots fast!

Switch Up Your Part

Do you always part your hair in the center? Consider a flipped-over side part with lots of volume to hide visible roots when its getting close to your appointment. To create extra volume, lift the hair up at the root and spray with a small amount of dry shampoo. This will give your hair lift and help to take attention away from your roots.

Try a New Style

Just like you can switch up your part, you can also try a new style to take attention away from visible roots. Often adding texture in the form of curls, waves, or simply spray a texturizing spray is enough to camouflage roots.

Give it a Spray

If visible roots are having an effect on your confidence level, reach for L'Oréal Professionnel Hair Touch Up. This professional product is like makeup for your hair and is perfect for when you're in a pinch. The pigmented spray offers high coverage and is available in five shades to blend with your haircolor: Blonde/Dark Blonde, Light Brown, Brown, Dark Brown, and Auburn. Your colorist can prescribe the perfect shade for you and teach you how to use it like a professional.

Expert Tip: While it's fine to use these tricks in between visits, try not to prolong the time between appointments too long. According to celebrity hairdresser and L'Oréal Professionnel Artist Jason Backe, the longer you go between touch-ups the more you are at risk for banding and unexpected results. The longer the regrowth, the more work your hairdresser has to do to ensure everything is blended and looks natural. So, make sure you maintain your appointments every 4-6 weeks, and in the meantime, try out our tips and tricks!
