The Best Root Cover Ups

Skip a trip to the salon and save some money with winning root touch-ups that will have you covered when you’re in a pinch. Here is every type of formula for every type of hair.

Dry Shampoo

Batiste Hint of Color Dark and Deep Brown Dry Shampoo

No longer do brunettes have to apply their dry shampoo and then a root cover up—this one does both. The starch formula soaks up oil yet is tinted brown, so no white residue is left behind.


L’Oréal Root Cover Up

To conceal roots fast, use a spray formula like this one. The large nozzle provides wide coverage quickly and easily. All you need is one layer and it comes in six shades.



Only get grays around your hairline or at your temple? The precise application of a wand like this one is perfect for those particular places. Swipe the doe foot applicator right where you need it to deliver, then distribute through with the included miniature comb. It comes in eight shades.


Madison Reed Root Touch Up

This convenient compact looks like it could be eyeshadow but is made with keratin, argan oil, and ginseng root to help it stick to hair to quickly cover up roots and grays. It goes on dry, is waterproof, and absorbs any oil from second-day hair. Simply shampoo strands when you’re ready for it to come out. It comes in seven shades.


dpHUE Root Touch Up Kit

Need a more permanent solution for covering roots between salon visits? This kit includes everything you need for two applications of permanent hair colour around your hairline and on your roots. Choose between eight shades.
