How to Cover Up Your Dark Roots

Anyone who gets her hair colored knows that at some point the roots grow in darker, lighter or grayer than the color initially put in. A quick (& inexpensive) trick is to use Clairol's new Nice 'n Easy Root Touch-Up Kit ($7 at your local drugstore or buy it online here..

This permanent color & brush makes it easy to hide obvious regrowth (most prominent along your part). You'll find the product is thick -- a good thing because if this stuff drops on your bathmat, you'll find your hair will match it!

Don't want to purchase a special root touch-up kit? Try a basic all-over hair dye & apply it to your part with a clean mascara wand. Don't worry if your color doesn't match the hair dye exactly -- it probably won't. But don't worry, no one will probably notice.
