How to cover your grey roots between colorings is maybe the best frugal tip I have ever shared here on the blog. Not sure why I have waited so long.
Sorry for the extreme closeup of my scalp but it was hard to get a picture by myself. So you can see I have about five weeks of regrowth here. Holding out until six weeks. I am trying to go longer between colorings to save money.
Take an eye shadow that is close to your hair color. Use a small makeup brush or paint brush and dip the brush in water and then into the eye shadow. Like water paints when you were a kid. Then just paint down your part or where the grey shows. Let is dry and it will last and last until you wash it again.
Here are the results.
Amazing isn't it? I go two days and it lasts the entire time until I shampoo my hair again.
My daughter bought me this grey root cover and I love it. Goes on great and lasts until the next time you shampoo. The brush is perfect for applying the fill in powder to cover grey hair between color.
