The likelihood of a second wave of coronavirus gives us even more of a reason to stay at home once again. Although socially distanced gatherings are okay, a visit to the salon may be too risky for some.


It seems like DIY projects are the theme for this year as we’ve had to let go of some services. Hairdressers were closed for several weeks during lockdown leaving us with overgrown hair.

Although many of us have visited the salon recently, the need for a root touch up will come soon. It would be best to keep safe in the next few weeks, so we’ve listed the best products for your specific at-home root solution.

Rita Hazan Root Concealer Stick


Price: $25

Celebrity colorist Rita Hazan developed her touch up range that offers different results. This root concealer stick is the best for filling in the roots at your temple quickly as easily.

The concealer has a creamy formula, and the pigment covers all unwanted root colors perfectly. Although this small stick disguises outgrown roots well, it is undetectable to the unsuspecting person.

Oribe Airbrush Root Touch Up Spray

This quality range root touch up product is popular amongst celebrities and their stylists. The airbrush spray comes in several colors and makes hair appear thicker while touching up regrowth.
