Are you a big fan of colouring your hair? If so, you are most likely familiar with the same old ordeal every month: your roots starting to show as soon as your hair grows out.
Ideally, you should get them touched up at the salon every six weeks so that they don't show too much. However, when short on time or money, lots of women postpone their trip to the hairdresser. The result: your roots grow out and become more visible. Luckily, this is the current trend! However, the greater the contrast between your base and the colouring treatment, the more your roots are visible and the harder it will be to live with between colouring treatments.
The best way to blend in the demarcation between your coloured hair and natural roots is a tone-on-tone colouring treatment. This will gradually fade and will help prevent that unsightly 'dark roots look'. Fortunately, there are solutions for those who do not wish to change their hair colouring habits.
To conceal your roots whilst waiting for your next colouring treatment, you have several options:
- use clever accessories (such as a headband to conceal your roots in the blink of an eye)
- choose smart hairstyles to make your roots go unnoticed
- curl your locks to blur the demarcation lines by creating movement in your hair
- tie up your locks with a slicked-back look at the front to make the section of growing-out roots look smaller
In this feature article, you will find all of our advice on how to best deal with your roots between colouring treatments and styling tips on how to conceal them!
