... I mess up my hair appointments and once again my grey roots will be on view this Christmas.
I need my roots done right now. My hair dye guy sticks to the 6 week rule re touching up the roots.
I’ve yet to find any good products that fill in the gap temporarily between visiting the hairdresser. I’ve sometimes just done a home semi permanent in desperation to not have the grey in the Christmas season, but the colours often not great.
Anyone have a remedy for this? Anyone come across reliable root cover?
Deff that - my roots need doing about every 10 days and there is no way I am paying a hairdresser to do that!
I have a mobile hairdresser and she uses L'oreal Majarel on my hair - she told me the shade and taught me how to mix it - I buy it, and the developer on ebay and do my own in between her visits - I would go down that route if I were you.
It means that when I suddenly notice that my roots are showing I can just sort them out instantly. Obvs I can't do the back and stuff but for the bits that really show like my parting it is ideal - I've even trained my husband into doing it!
I am dark haired with a lot of grey and have my hair dyed back to its natural colour. I feel your pain! I’ve never heard of the six-week rule before. I get mine done every 4-5 weeks and try to plan in advance for Christmas and summer hols (I’m in France and my hairdresser closes for a month in the summer 😱). She would do it every 3 weeks if I wanted but I try to put up with it a bit longer because of the cost.
Anyway I’ve been having the 4-5 week appointments for years and my hair is in good condition, so I would think you’d be fine to book in a bit early and get it done before Christmas!
I was disappointed with the L’Oréal instant root touch up - I didn’t think the coverage was good but could be because I have so much grey.
