Getting your hair colored every couple of months can be very expensive for the average salon customer. While the cost may be a concern, many people don't know how much damage can be caused by frequent coloring. A great way of saving money and preventing hair damage is touching up your roots between coloring your entire head. This article will help you to maintain your color without spending too much money.
Things You'll Need
- Root touch up kit
Visit your local pharmacy and select a semi-permanent coloring kit that is specifically designed for the roots. Clairol has a highly rated root touch up kit that is popular.
Pick a color that best matches your existing professionally applied color. Do not pick a color that is closest to your root color.
In your bathroom, mix the colorant with the activator and apply the color to your roots with the supplied plastic brush.
Make sure that you apply the color to your hair line around your face. This is usually where the color fade is most noticeable.
Allow the colorant to set for 10 minutes. Rinse your hair and apply a conditioner to soften your hair.
Style your hair as usual.
Tips & Warnings
- Visit a professional salon if you do not want to touch up your roots on your own. Most salons charge less for a root touch up versus a full head of color.
- If you experience an allergic reaction, contact your physician immediately.
