Here's how to do root touch-ups between salon visits

Even if your next hair appointment is weeks away and your roots are starting to show, you don't need to be embarrassed by them – dark visible roots are even in style right now! But if you don't want people seeing them, here are some clever ways to touch them up at home.

Opt for a root touch-up spray

Dark roots (and pesky grey hairs) have been a hair enemy to many people for a long time. To help provide a solution to this beauty woe, companies have developed sprays, like Hair Touch Up by L'Oréal Professionnel, that cover up any undesirable color until you wash it out in the shower.

Use some dry shampoo

If you don't want to go out and buy a spray that's specially formulated for your roots, then your dry shampoo would be the perfect SOS solution. Simply spritz on a bit of dry shampoo as you normally would on second or third day hair - the white powder will lighten the darkness of your roots, and add a bit of volume.

Try out different hairstyles

Hairstyles may not literally be able to touch up your roots, but they can temporarily hide them all the same. The key is to find styles that let your roots blend into the rest of your hair: the wet look is great (especially for the summer), as well as braids, updos, and even adding hair accessories like headbands or bandanas. Another option is to tease your hair and then apply a texturizing product like Savage Panache Wild Stylers 60's Babe by Tecni.ART from L'Oréal Professionnel to add texture and volume (thus taking attention away from the roots themselves).
