Maybe your red hair is starting to gray, or maybe you’re redhead ‘by choice’. Regardless of why your red hair needs a little help, it can be costly to get frequent salon touch-ups. Try a ‘Redhead Friendly’ approved root cover-up spray or powder to cover up those grown-out roots or pesky gray hairs.

Here are five more root cover-up products to cover up your roots

Spray

If you’re using a spray, shake well before use. Hold the product a few inches from your red hair and press down lightly until the product sprays out from the bottle. Let it dry for about a minute before styling.
