Are you here because you want to hide stray grey hairs in between salon appointments or because you want to hide your roots? Either way these products can help you. These products which I have sourced and personally tried are all great, affordable, last a long time and do the job. Also, they are for men and women! What is it about our culture being so embarrassed about grey hairs? Apart from my Italian nan who had predominently black hair well into her 80s I actually don’t believe there is anyone out there that can shy away from grey hairs their whole life, but it is such a taboo to talk about. Even if you do talk about grey hairs it is always tinged with negativity. Some guys are lucky and get cast a the sexy salt and peppered dude but women…well, that’s a whole sucky situation! Grey hairs are just a result of hairs that have cells that stop producing melanin and this can happen at any age. It’s not something to be embarrassed about and it’s not something we should be shamed for wanting to hide either. Even the stunning Cheryl Cole advertises hair dye to cover grey hairs but for some reason doesn’t actually address it directly. I think she could make a lot of young women feel fab if she actually said, yer I’m riddled in greys but I cover them…just a thought.
QUICK FIX POWDERS
Tight for time? These are the products you want and they are mess free.
Powders are an amazing way to cover your roots or grey hairs because you can put your hair in any style you wish and then use the powder afterwards to cover only the bits on show. I have found that with the powders the pigments stick much better if you have hair spray on. I have seen that they can produce a bit of a block colour if you’re not careful because you can colour your scalp as well. It suggests that you pull the hair taught then use the brush to rub the colour on.

I have talked about Rita Hazan in the past in this post and you all seem to be clicking on it a lot. It was because of this post that I thought about creating this blog post today. The whole root concealing business seems to be pretty popular. I can highly recommend Rita’s products. They work and do what they say they should and they leave you smelling salon fresh which I personally adore. The two products I have here to show you are two different ways to conceal your roots and/or grey hairs. The first product is the ‘Touch Up Spray‘. This product works incredibly well and is probably the best out of all of the options but I found it to be the messiest out of everything I tried. My tip would be to spray it on your hair over your bath, not over any carpet. It is a powerful spray and has amazing coverage. The other product is the ‘Touch Up Stick‘. This stick is like a large crayon and comes with a little spoolie brush. It comes in three colours, dark blonde, dark brown/black and light brown. The pigment is insanely good and is easy to use and cover small sections if need be. I also love to use it on more sparse sections of my eyebrows.
Have you tried any of these goodies? Do you know of any other brands or ways to cover your greys or roots at home?
