The Text “convo” went something like this:
ME: Sandra! Hairdresser to the Stars! I am desperate! I have been too busy to come and see you and I NEED my roots done. Have you got anything today? I am nearby!
Sandra: Oh I am so sorry Barbe, nothing today and I won’t be able to do anything now until I come back from Holidays at the end of the month.
It was only the middle of the month and my greys were a-sprouting!!!
I had to do something!
How was I going to hide them for at least 2-3 weeks???
Here are some options:
First of all: Hair mascara! I didn’t even know such a thing existed!
1000 Hour Hair mascara. Instant touch up for grey hair
Get it from Priceline HERE for $10.39 on special. I use Medium Brown.
Note: 1000 Hour also does a Hair colour Stick. I haven’t tried it, so if you have, let me know what that is like?
(Semi) Permanent colour: The most annoying thing about using a more permanent colouring solution, an at home colouring product, is that you have to use the whole container just for your roots and throw out the rest.
It doesn’t cover the greys as well as a hairdresser would, but it will buy you at least 2 weeks. Some come as a ready made mousse, without having to mix peroxide/colour. And you just use what you need. This way there is no waste and it seems a bit easier to apply. I have used the Schwarzkopf before and Clairol does one too.
Here comes my favourite:
It is new, it is easy and it works best:
*L’Oréal Paris Magic Retouch! Instant root concealing spray.
Ok, where have you been all my (mature) life. This is sooo easy to use and very precise with a fine nozzle, and the best thing, it doesn’t wreck my hair with more peroxide. And it lasts until the next wash! This is now part of my morning routine to stretch out that hairdressers visit! I spray and then I use a brush to rub it in a little. (oh and psssst, it covers that bald patch at the back too!)
Oh is that grey hairs I spy??
When all fails?
Do you have any tips?
I wish i was as brave as the ladies in this post: Check out these gorgeous grey foxes.
