Every time my best friend visits my house, she always helps me check on my gray hair situation. Oh yes, I do have some. Not that much yet, but she is really good at finding them and cutting them off from the root. I guess no matter how much I take care of myself, I have no ability to stop aging or grays from coming.
Gray hairs are the worst party guests ever. They arrive without an invitation, and they are beyond high-maintenance. Think about this: Hair typically grows a half-inch a month. Based on scientific research, gray hairs growth cells are twice as active as non-gray hair, meaning they sprout faster than normal hair! What the heck? This explains why keeping those suckers covered means you have to dye them at least every month. This can add up to more than $1,000 a year at the salon. That is a lot of money for maintaining. And, ugh, do you know there’s evidence showing that we’re graying earlier? Per a John Frieda survey, about 32 percent of women discovered their first sprigs before age 30. That is just too crazy!
If you’re not ready to embrace a full head of silver strands, you may think your only choices are frequent and pricey trips to the salon or messy, time-consuming at home color sessions. In fact, there are two ways that I know of to push your appointments out a bit longer and help you cover up your roots at home quickly for an emergency event which requires your best appearance.
Use a temporary powder
The one that my friend and I have used since September is GRAY AWAY root touch-up magnetic powder. It is an instant solution to getting rid of those unwanted gray roots. We are all impressed with its unique, binding formula which attaches along each hair strand like magnets, providing the ultimate coverage that stays put all day long. Of course the small size of this powder makes it the perfect one to take with me when I am traveling.
I got the color Black/Dark Brown, but there is also Light Brown and Lightest Brown/Medium Blonde. My neighbor’s mom has light brown hair and she tried mine, but it still turned out pretty good on her hair. We were all very surprised with its self-adjusting color technology. I also like the hidden sponge applicator that allows for precise control and coverage for my forehead area and the hairline near my ears.
How to use it: You can watch the short video I made below to see this in action. I noticed for best results you should apply to clean, dry/styled hair. Also, just sweep a small amount of powder over gray roots starting from the scalp and working outward. It really doesn’t need much. You can re-apply as necessary later.
You can buy it at Walgreens for just $7.99 right now. You also can find it at CVS, Target and Ulta for $9.99.
Spray on coverage
This GRAY AWAY temporary root concealer spray, for me is the fastest and easiest way to temporarily touch-up and cover gray roots. It is best to use on top of your head if you have a big area of gray roots. In just seconds, you can spray away the gray. This spray is seriously the best I have ever seen. It covers up the grays so quickly without any visible residue on the hair.
This Temporary root concealer is not just a life saver for those of us with gray hair, it is also a very handy thing to have if you colored your hair and now your natural hair is growing out. It can seriously extend the life of your color. I like that it is fast drying and sweat resistant.
How to use it: Again, watch the short video below. But please SHAKE WELL BEFORE USE. For best results, apply to dry hair. I usually hold the can 2-3 inches from my hair root. Let dry 2-3 minutes.
This Spray contains 40 applications. You can buy it at Walgreens for just $7.99. You also can find it at CVS, Target, Ulta, Rite Aid and Walmart for $9.99.
Finally, below is this short video I made on how to use it. See it with your own eyes and you will believe it. 😉
As you can see from the short video above, Gray Away is the fastest and easiest way to temporarily touch-up your roots in 10 seconds!
Still looking for an unique idea for a Christmas gift? Look no further! GRAY AWAY root touch-up magnetic powder and GRAY AWAY temporary root concealer sprays are the gifts most women who have grays will really appreciate!
