Root Cover-Up Sprays To Hide Your Lockdown Regrowth

Root Cover-Up Sprays To Hide Your Lockdown Regrowth

We’ve all been self-isolating for a while now and it’s unlikely that any of us will be sitting in a salon chair anytime soon – which is particularly frustrating for those of us who dye our hair (hands up if you need your roots redoing!). Fortunately, there is an array of root cover-up sprays and concealers out there that will tide you over until you can see your stylist again.

With that in mind, here are four root cover-up hair dye alternatives to get you through this strange period:

1. Joico Tint Shot Root Concealer Black, £13.60

This lightweight and fast-drying spray camouflages roots by covering individual strands with a touch of colour. Its humidity-resistant and natural-looking formula makes your hair look fuller and thicker.

For a professional-looking result, hold the can 15 to 30cm away from your dry hair, then spray the formula onto your roots in a light, steady stream. Leave it to dry for a couple of minutes, then admire the results.

2. L’Oréal Paris Magic Retouch Instant Root Concealer Spray, £8.99

This concealer spray allows you to instantly revive your roots and keep your colour looking fresh. It boasts a micro-diffuser which evenly distributes the colour onto your hair, covering up any new tresses that have been growing out over the last few weeks.

All you need to do is hold the canister 20 cm away from your hair, then spray the lightweight formula onto your roots to cover them with a rich and shiny colour. The touch up will last until the next time you wash your hair.

3. Redken Root Fusion, £10.35

Using colour-concealing pigments, this innovative root cover-up attaches itself onto individual strands of hair to hide regrowth and roots. You just spray the fast-drying, lightweight formula onto your visible roots whilst holding the can 15cm away. Then, leave it to dry for one minute and style as usual. Greys? Roots? All gone!

4. Color WOW Root Cover Up, £28.50

Housed in a mirrored palette with a useful brush, this root cover-up allows you to camouflage roots with expert precision. Better yet, the mineral touch-up powder is really highly-pigmented and doesn’t feel greasy, so it is a great way to hide regrowth.

For best results, pull your hair taut at the root with one hand, then pat a small amount of powder onto the visible roots with your other hand, working from the scalp outwards. Repeat until your roots disappear and the colour looks like new.

And there you have it, four root cover-up sprays to get you through self-isolation!
