How To Hide Your Roots

When it comes to beauty bag marvels, they don’t get more essential than at-home root touch-ups. The wonder products are ideal for in-between salon appointments or when those troublesome grey hairs come through too early. Whether you’re a blonde or brunette, are a serious root touch-up expert or a sceptic, we’ve found the no-fail options that will work for every hair type.

Alterna 2 Minute Root Touch

2 Minute Root Touch really does live up to its name. Use the easy-to-apply squeezy tube to brush colour directly onto roots, leave on for two minutes, then style as normal. Fast-drying and flake-free it also washes out in just one shampoo so is ideal for fast hair fixes.
