Here's How to Cover up Grey Roots if You Want to Go Longer between Colorings ...

No matter when your hair starts to go grey, you may want to keep it covered up. If not, more power to you! However, if you want to get your natural color back and keep your roots under wraps, you have several options. Any of these products will help you prolong the amount of time between colorings and help ensure that you have the look you want without having to worry about constant appointments with your stylist.

1. Stock up on Semi Permanent Glaze Products

Many of the big names in the hair care industry sell glazes or hair tints. These products work by dying the outside of your strands, helping deepen and prolong your color. Most such products last for about a month so you can apply one when your roots start to show and you can make it a few more weeks before you need to get in for another color treatment.

2. Try a Powder Product for a Few Days

These products are very similar to the makeup you put on your face. You dab the powder where it’s needed and it helps mask grey hair at your roots. This isn’t a permanent solution and will only last until the next time you wash your hair. However, in a pinch, it can get you through a few days until your next appointment. It’s so easy to use too!

3. Use a Pigmented Spray on Your Roots

Much like hairspray that comes in aerosol cans, this product sprays right on your hair and helps color the roots to match the rest of your head of hair. All you have to do is spritz the root concealer in the areas where you need it most. This will help you keep those greys covered anytime you need a little boost of color.

4. Consider an over-the-Counter Dye Job

(Your reaction) Thank you!

The hair dye you can buy on store shelves is pretty easy to use and makes it so much easier to match your roots to the rest of your hair when the roots start to grow out. You can also find over-the-counter products that allow you to just apply them to the roots instead of having to color all of your hair at the same time. They’re easy to use and much more affordable than having to go the stylist all the time.

5. Just Use Some Eyeshadow

(Your reaction) Thank you!

If you don’t have any other options in your bathroom, you can mask roots for a few hours with some eyeshadow that blends in with your hair color. Use a blush brush and swirl the color over your roots to help match them to the rest of your strands. Make sure you wash the brushes after you do this so they don’t clog your pores and lead to breakouts on your face. Cool, right?

6. Part Your Hair on the Other Side

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Sometimes all you need to do is change up your hairstyle to mask the greys. Try parting your hair on the other side to cover them up. Or pull your hair back to conceal your part altogether. This is super easy allows you to try a fab new look at the same time. Get ready for some compliments.

7. Wear Some Hair Accessories

(Your reaction) Thank you!

When all else fails, try wearing some accessories in your hair to cover greys. A really fun headband is a great idea and looks great when you wear your hair down or when you do a braid or ponytail. Cute barrettes and clips are other fun ideas.

How do you cover your greys? Which of these ideas are you excited to try?
