What is a root touch-up?

If you've dyed your hair a solid colour that's different from your natural hair colour, you've undoubtedly heard of a root touch-up. This product is applied to the regrowth at your hairline to conceal, tint and blend seamlessly into the rest of your dyed hair. Whether your roots are lighter, darker or grey, this miracle worker can be applied easily at home to extend the amount of time between salon visits and keep your salon colour looking vibrant and refreshed.

Root retouchers come in different forms, from powders to spray-on applications. There are temporary, semi-permanent and permanent root touch-up options for grey hair cover-up.

Root touch-up colours are diverse to perfectly match any hair colour. You can find blonde, light brown, medium brown, dark brown, red, platinum and black touch-up hair dye. There are also root cover-up kits that contain everything you need to get the job done in one convenient purchase.

Hairhouse has the best root touch-up products to tackle your regrowth and keep your hair colour salon-fresh at home. Try Goldwell Color Revive Root Retouch Powder in various shades for a root retoucher that also absorbs oil and sebum. There's also Color Wow Retoucher with a brush included for easy application.

If you prefer a spray application, we have L'Oréal Hair Touch Up in brown, black, light brown and dark blonde. This product is formulated with make-up pigments to provide a seamless colour that effortlessly conceals greys and washes out with shampoo.

Can I do a root touch-up after keratin treatment?

If you've had a keratin treatment at the salon, it's typically advised to wait 1-2 weeks before applying a dye to your hair. If you attempt to do a dye job beforehand, you risk frizz, uneven colour and, at worst, total removal of your keratin treatment, which will be a big waste of money!

After this period, you can continue to maintain the silky, smooth texture of your hair by using a root touch-up product with keratin.

Like all Keratherapy hair products, Keratherapy Gray Root Concealer is infused with exclusive Kerabond Technology, which contains pure keratin that has been enhanced so that it can penetrate deep inside the hair shaft and work its magic. The result is stronger hair with improved elasticity, less breakage, no frizz and a gorgeous natural shine.

It's one of the best root touch-up sprays for covering grey roots with an easy application and natural colour that washes out with shampoo. Plus, you get all of the added benefits of a keratin treatment at the same time!

Does root touch-up spray wash out?

A hair root touch-up spray that is temporary will come out easily the first time that you wash your hair with shampoo. Until then, it should hold fast to your roots and not flake off or transfer onto your hands or clothing.

Can you shampoo after root touch-up?

If you're using a permanent product to retouch hair, it will be safe to wash your hair several days after you have applied it. This will give the dye time to settle and bond correctly to your hair.

Temporary sprays, powders and other types of products are designed to come out fully when you shampoo your hair. You can keep your hair fresh and clean for longer by using a dry shampoo until you're ready to wash out your root concealer.

Do root touch-up kits work?

Yes, a root touch-up kit works! This is a great way to save some money as it contains everything you need to get started in one purchase, which is both convenient and cost-effective. A typical root touch-up kit includes the root touch-up product and a comb or application brush for more thorough root coverage.

One of the best root touch-up kits you'll find at Hairhouse is the Hi Lift Hair Building Fibres Kit. This is a fabulous product for men and women who have thinning or fine hair and want to bulk it up while concealing their roots. The blonde root touch-up kit distributes fibres that adhere seamlessly to roots and resist sweat, wind and rain for a thicker, fuller look instantly. You can also find it in black, light brown and medium brown shades.
