We’ve all been without our hairdressers for awhile now. Our roots are showing. For some of us, that means a dark part down the center of our head. For others, it means gray. Even when the salons open again, the requirement that we remain socially distant will require that our hair salons space us out, remove chairs, and not double book us as they normally would. As a result, it may take us some time to get an appointment. How do we look our best until then?
Root touch up sprays have traditionally been best suited for the dark haired. It’s much easier to color light hairs to dark than to coat dark to make them light. I’ve tried so many different options over the years. As a blonde, I have never found a root touch up that was easy to use and actually made my dark part look lighter. Well…at least not in any way that looked natural that is.
Recently, Oribe repackaged all their root touch up sprays. Who knew a spout could make such a difference? The platinum and blonde shades are completely transformative. Yes, you can cover your dark roots and look like you just had your roots done. It’s insane. I recently got the blonde shade back in stock and it sold out day one. I am sure the platinum is just as good. Unfortunately, my hair is far too golden to try the platinum myself but based on the blonde color I would guess it’s amazing. Come in and give it a try if you’re platinum colored.
For those of you with dark hair, their dark brown root touch up is back in stock as well. No more greys and you don’t have to risk messing up your color with an at home treatment. I’ve been so impressed I plan on bringing in the red and black shades as well.
For those of you who don’t love the roots you’re seeing, please come in and try these touch up sprays. You may not only find a solution for now, you may just find a way to buy yourself time in between colorings. Oh, and did I mention that it’s now more than double the size for only $2 more? This is the best thing since…well…being able to go to the salon.
