Our days are seeming to blending into one right now – where we find ourselves checking the fridge 25 times a day, taking up some interesting hobbies and spending way more time than we should our most-loved streaming services. For some of us, we do know that time is passing by though by the ever-growing regrowth we see each time we look in the mirror.
We've put together a list of our favourite at-home colour touch up products to help you through lockdown and to stop you reaching from that dreaded box-dye.
Oribe Airbrush Root Touch Up Spray
An absolute cult-favourite!
Oribe Airbrush Root Touch Up Spray is loved by all colours as it’s micro-fine pigments blend seamlessly with your natural or artificial shade. With only a few lights sprays, regrowth instantly disappears, while the quick-drying powder formula absorbs dirt and oil leaving hair feeling refreshed. The product will last on the hair until it is washed next and promises not to transfer onto clothing or pillow cases. It’s the perfect instant fix!
What we love: As the name says, this root cover sprays gives an ‘airbrushed effect’, miraculously leaving roots completely concealed. Plus, like all Oribe products the signature scent will leave a long-lasting essence to your hair.
Shades available: Black, Dark Brown, Light Brown, Blonde, Platinum & Red.''
Christophe Robin Temporary Colour Gels
Whilst Christophe Robin Temporary Color Gels aren’t a ‘two-minute job and your done’, the results last a lot longer than a temporary spray or powder application. Christophe Robin Temporary Color Gels cover greys by surrounding the hair; then wash out evenly over shampoos – meaning you won’t get stuck in that vicious root touch up cycle The elegant shades perfectly match the colour for a natural and radiant result. Hair is luminous and looks fuller. Composed of 92% natural-origin ingredients and pure pigments, it is made without oxidants and ammonia (meaning that unwanted brassiness won’t occur). For best results, prime hair by using Christophe Robin Brightening Shampoo before applying the Colour Gel.
What we love: As the gel fades evenly over time, you will see results for up to three weeks (depending on how often you wash your hair). The gentle ammonia-free formula is perfect for those who suffer with sensitivity or those who are looking for a non-aggressive colouring option. These gels are also ideal for men who are wanting to camouflage their greys without getting a helmet effect.
Shades available: Dark Chestnut, Light Chestnut, Light Blonde & Golden Blonde.
R+Co Bright Shadows Root Touch-Up Spray
Just like the Oribe Airbrush Root Touch-Up Spray, the R+Co Bright Shadows Root Sprays are a simple spray application that instantly covers greys and regrowth between colour appointments. Featuring a target actuator for precise application, R+Co Bright Shadows Root Touch-Up Sprays deliver a mess-free application with no stickiness, dustiness or colour transfer.
Formulated with Biotin to help thicken hair and Pearl Extract to impart intense shine into the hair, these sprays will leave your roots feeling revived and greys are banished - the perfect lockdown pick-me-up.
Shades available: Black, Red, Dark Brown, Medium Brown, Light Brown, Dark Blonde & Light Blonde.
Davines Alchemic Coloured Conditioners
The perfect range for those wanting to try something new with their colour during lock down or to intensify both natural and cosmetic colours. The Davines Alchemic Range is a non-permanent colour that gives you free reign to experiment without worrying about long-term effects.
Alchemic is made with pure pigments that are deposited on the hair surface, reviving color and preserving the intensity between color treatments. It adds wonderful reflections by strengthening the hair from the inside, protecting and brightening it.
Each family within the Alchemic system covers a different range of hair colors. Icy platinum blondes can avoid brassiness with Alchemic Silver, dark brunettes can add rich, never-dull tones with Alchemic Chocolate, and vibrant warm reds are boosted by Alchemic Copper.
Or, if your one wanting to be extra creative through lock down, why not try one of their creative colour conditioners.
Shades Available: Chocolate, Silver, Golden, Copper, Red, Pink, Lavender, Coral, Marine Blue & Teal.
Christophe Robin Shade Variation Care
The entire philosophy behind the Christophe Robin brand is to deliver truly exceptional results with innovative formulas and the Shade Variation Care Range is exactly this.
The Shade Variation was the first product on the market of it's kind - An alternative to professional toners and colour neutralising shampoos developed to transform the longevity of carefully crafted colours at home. Enriched with Buriti Oil and Almond Butter, the creamy formulation enhances vibrancy, prevents colour fadeage and banishes unwanted tones while deeply nourishing.
Shades Available: Baby Blonde, Chic Copper, Golden Blonde, Warm Chestnut, Ash Brown.
Colour Wow Root Cover Up
There’s a reason why Color Wow has one SIX Allure “Best of Beauty” Awards. Popular for it’s easy, instant and precise results, Color Wow Root Cover Up is a pressed-powder formulation – meaning you can evenly control the application. The reflective mineral powder gives a multidimensional effect and ensures that Root Cover Up looks totally natural. It has the texture and finish of real hair, and it’s available in eight shades so you can find your perfect match. The product is never stiff, sticky, or waxy like mascaras, crayons, and sprays. That means no odd shine on your scalp, or crumbly build up on your hair root.
We particularly love this option for highlighted hair as the dual-ended brush allows you to join your grown out highlights to your roots.
Shades Available: Platinum, Light Blonde, Dark Blonde, Light Brown, Medium Brown, Dark Brown, Black, Red.
