With hair salons across Canada forced to close due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), many of your clients may be scrambling to touch up their own roots or colour at home. As the idea alone can make most hairstylists cringe, there are some temporary, damage-free options that you should be telling your clients about.
Not only are these professional products safe and easy to use at home, but they will help prevent your clients from reaching for box-colour products (which, let’s face it, will often only make your work more difficult when they return to your chair).
Bumble and Bumble Color Stick
No, this isn’t makeup! Stick it to greys with this velvety, dry fiber colour stick that provides instant and blendable coverage in a mess-free application. Thanks to a combination of mineral-based pigments, dry fibers and microspheres, the balm-like emollient holds pigments in place for a water-resistant finish.
Color Wow Root Cover Up
This mineral powder instantly camouflages grey roots and even covers dark regrowth in lightened hair. It’s also a great solution for thinning areas (for example, filling in gaps around the hairline for updos). Available in seven shades—from platinum to red to black—the powder’s oil-based, non-waxy formula is long-lasting (meaning it can withstand sweat, rain and even a swim) and removable with shampoo.
With a dry, satin finish, this spray is available in four shades and contains microfine pigments for a fast, seamless coverage of greys without any residue or flakiness.
L’Oreal Professionnel Hair Touch Up Root Concealer
For a quick fix, this temporary root spray is available in seven shades and provides an instant and natural result—all in one simple application that will last until your client’s next shampoo.
Oribe Airbrush Root Touch-Up Spray
This spray is available in six colours and contains microfine pigments that provide a seamless blend with hair to instantly cover roots and greys. Plus, the quick-drying powder formula helps absorb dirt and oil to give hair a total refresh.
Wella Professionals Insta Recharge Root Concealer
This temporary powder is a four-in-one solution for clients who are in-between salon appointments (which is just about everyone right now). Available in five shades, this brush-on powder can easily conceal greys or touch up highlights. Plus, it fills in roots and hairlines (and even eyebrows!) and fades away by the next shampoo.
