Tired of having to visit the salon monthly to colour your hair? If your overgrown roots or pesky grey hairs are bothering you, and you need a quick fix, there are root touch-up products that do wonderful cover-ups. Apart from being easy to use, these options help you save time and money. Here are our top five picks to tide you over until your next salon appointment. 

John Freida Root Blur Colour Blending Concealer

This concealer covers up unwanted regrowth in a jiffy, with its powder-based formula that is comfortable on the scalp and blends easily with your natural hair for an “airbrushed” effect. Because of its compact size, those who are always strapped for time can use it on-the-go for last-minute touch-ups. 

Oribe Airbrush Root Touch-Up Spray

Suitable for all hair types and textures, the Oribe Airbrush Root Touch-Up Spray not only conceals your roots almost instantly but also works simultaneously as a cleanser to get rid of unwanted oils and dirt on the scalp. To prevent colour degradation, the quick-drying powder formula is infused with a UV absorber, so your coat lasts longer.

Rita Hazaan Root Concealer Touch-up Spray

This water and transfer-resistant spray can get you through a whole day of sweat, rain and more, without you having to worry about uneven patches on your scalp. Based on customer reviews, what makes this product popular is its effectiveness in filling out thin hair for a volumised finish.

Bumble and bumble Colour Stick

Say goodbye to grey strands with this highly pigmented colour stick. The handy stick applicator hides hard-to-reach areas and blends very well with your existing hair colour. If you are looking for staying power, Bumble and bumble have delivered on that front too. 

L’Oreal Magic Root Precision Temporary Gray Hair Color Concealer Brush

Designed to target grey hair regrowth on smaller sections, this concealer by L’Oreal comes with an attached brush applicator for a quick and even touch-up. Dispense a small amount onto your scalp and use the brush applicator to spread the colour over your desired area.
