I’m in serious need of a color touch-up! I’ve heard people say that hair is our most powerful accessory and right now I’m ruining my “statement” with pesky gray hairs showing 😦 Root Concealer by celebrity hair colorist Rita Hazan (think a-list like JLo, Renee Zellweger) is the latest at-home color tool that temporarily covers grays in-between appointments. I picked it up at Sephora for $24 (1 oz). It comes in 4 shades: Blonde/Golden Blonde, Red/Auburn, Light Brown, Dark Brown/Black.
- Pros: Spray covers a lot of gray hair quickly; the light brown shade blends in with my darker brown hair and looks natural (Dark Brown/Black was too dark); the slim nozzle works great for targeting strands; it stays put for a few days or until you shampoo
- Cons: Hair is slightly dull and sticky; color transfers a bit (don’t use with your best pillow cases); there is not near enough product for the price
- Tip: Place a comb on the part to avoid coloring the scalp — that looks weird!
The bottom line is Rita Hazan Root Concealer is my favorite gray hair cover-up. It is the quickest, easiest and most natural looking of all the temporary hair color products I’ve tried. However, I will use it interchangeably with Roux Tween Time, because it’s only $6.99 and will last a year.
