How To Hide Your Roots Between Salon Visits

How To Hide Your Roots Between Salon Visits

Try A Touch-Up Root Concealer

There are countless touch-up wands out there, they dry quickly and blend seamlessly into the hair, and although they may be temporary, they are a good fix that does the trick well until you decide to finally head for the salon.

Change Your Parting

The habit of parting your hair in the same place leads to that area getting naturally flattened over time and becoming more prominent. Try changing things up a bit by flipping your part to the opposite side of your head.

Add Volume

Just take a small section of hair from the crown of your head, hold it up straight, and comb the roots up and down for texture. If you don’t want to use a spray, you can get a volumising foam, which is lighter and distributes to the hair more evenly in some cases. Creating waves or soft curls is a great way of hiding roots – in fact, textured hair actually suits and looks better with roots which give it a beachy waves look.

Dry Shampoo

While this product doesn’t make your roots disappear entirely, it does help blur the edges and goes a long way in lightening up the darkness growing out. Dry shampooing your roots is a very easy and fast way of making them less noticeable.

Try A Hair Accessory

A thick headband will definitely hide regrowth, though a thin one works just as well – either way, both will act as a distraction by drawing attention to the accessory and away from the roots. You can also tie your head up in a scarf for a more feminine look by wrapping it around the head and finishing with a soft bow at the neck.

Plaiting Your Hair

Anything that twists the hair is going to blend together your natural colour with the rest of your hair. Another way to camouflage your regrowth is by putting your hair up in a high bun and making the topknot the feature of the hair style, thereby taking the attention off whatever might be happening underneath.
