Rita Hazan Root Concealer for Grey Coverage
Providing the easiest application of the lot, this spray-on product is specifically formulated to cover grey roots. It dries quickly and will last until the next time you wash your hair. In the mean time, the water-resistant formula won’t stain your clothing or linens.
Color Wow Root Cover Up
You apply this powder formula to your roots with a brush. It washes out when you shampoo, but the water-resistant formula means that you can wear it swimming or sweating and don’t have to worry about streaking in the rain.
You apply this liquid colour with a small applicator and it bonds with your hair so that it doesn’t flake off. Its gentle formula contains no ammonia or peroxide, so you can rest assured it won’t cause further damage to your colour-treated hair.
Toppik Hair Blending Fibres
Made of all-natural, coloured keratin protein, this product was developed to create voluminous, full-looking hair but has proven to be very multi-functional. The fibers attach themselves and blend fully with your natural hair, making it perfect for covering up your roots or blending in hair extensions.

The sponge applicator makes this product easy to apply directly to your roots without worrying about making a mess. It only takes 10 minutes to set and provides the most seamless colour of any of the semi-permanent root touch-ups on the market. You can expect the results to last for nearly four weeks before it starts to fade.
