When you are in between salon treatments, you can use temporary root touch-up products to cover your grays and confidently go about your day.

Root Touch-Up Products

For those dealing with gray hair, mastering the art of covering grays without dye can feel like a magic trick. This skill can be incredibly useful, as gray hair tends to reappear quickly. 

Some prefer regular salon touch-ups. But between salon appointments, others may explore ways to obscure gray hair without dye, such as using at-home color. Techniques include strategic camouflage and using specialized products or natural remedies to minimize shine from gray strands while maintaining your natural hair shade. It is important to consider scalp health, as excessive use of products can affect hair health and color.

The $25 TouchBack Pro Gray Root Touch Up Marker Applicator is a temporary gray root touch-up marker that covers gray roots instantly and lasts until your next shampoo. Each marker delivers 60 applications, offering the look of real hair color without harsh chemicals like ammonia or peroxide. The marker applicator provides precise and easy application, making it ideal for on-the-go touch-ups. If your roots are stubbornly gray or white, you can keep the marker on the area for a bit longer to add more color.
