Roots can be a real pain, especially if the rest of your length is an extraordinarily different color. There is no reason to try and do root touchups at home, though, no matter how tempting it may be. Our salon can help you, and we can make sure that you see a perfect color match. Even if you have a lot of growth, we can help you at Kraze.
Roots Can Grow Fast–and That Isn’t Necessarily a Bad Thing
While it may seem like fast-growing roots are problematic, they are not bad for your hair’s health. If your roots are growing rather quickly, it means that you have taken good care of your mane and your body, promoting quick growth. Most people do not want to have to have their roots touched up once every couple of months, but if your hair is healthy, that is very likely going to be the case for you.
Drastic Change Means Drastic Maintenance
If you have made a drastic hair change, your roots will be much more noticeable. While dark roots with light hair are in right now, it is not a look that everyone wants to sport. If you have made any of the following drastic changes, you will likely have to visit the salon more often for retouches:
- Dark to light.
- Light to dark.
- Red to light.
- Red to dark.
- Medium tone to very dark tone.
- Medium tone to very light tone.
Committing to a drastic change may seem easy when you do it, but when touchups become necessary, you may find yourself growing frustrated with your roots. That does not mean that you should give up on your dream color, though! Your hairstylist can touch your roots up as often as necessary.
Don’t Try Permanent Touchups at Home
If you are experiencing severe regrowth, it may be tempting to go to your local supermarket or beauty supply store and pick up some permanent root touchup. Unfortunately, if you try to do it yourself, you may end up with some unattractive and damaging results. Because box dyes tend to be harmful and difficult to control (especially if you aren’t a professional), your roots may not end up the same color as the rest of your length. Then, your hairstylist will have to deal with miscolored banding. Color correcting from negative box dye results will be much harder than if you had just scheduled your salon appointment to begin with. It is simply not worth the risk.
Just because you shouldn’t use box dye does not mean that there are not solutions. If you cannot get into the salon right away, you can use temporary root solutions. Sometimes in spray-form, sometimes in wax, chalk, or liquid form, root touchups are sometimes referred to as hair makeup. When you have not yet been able to find a permanent solution, a temporary solution is sure to get you through until your next appointment. While we do not recommend using them long-term, as some can make your hair appear greasy or dry, they are perfectly fine for short periods in between touchups.
Don’t Fret–Your Roots Can be Fixed
Even if you have inches and inches of length, there are solutions for you. You will need to come to a salon for serious root correction, and you should always plan to come in for your permanent solution. Nevertheless, there are short-term options as well! No matter what, your root woes are solvable, and we are here to help you.
