Tips to Cover Roots

1. Wear Headbands

A wide headband is a cute way to cover roots between dye jobs. The best part is you’ll look super cute. Try keeping several different headbands on hand so that you can rock a cute look to hide those roots. You can also tie a scarf in a cute way or use a bandanna. Regardless of what you use, this is an easy way to hide your roots.

2. Change the Part of Your Hair

Another easy way to cover roots is to simply change the way you part your hair. If your hair naturally parts down the center, try brushing your hair over and to the side to hide the roots. People will simply think you’re trying a new style.  A zig-zag part is also great at hiding roots.

3. Use a Color Powder

You can find color powders in most drugstores that will hide your roots. You want to make sure to match your color as closely as possible. You also want to follow the directions carefully so that you don’t end up with a messy scalp. One last tip… Don’t try this on a rainy day. And if you do, use an umbrella!

If you don’t want to use the powder, use a spray. There are some really good sprays on the market that will allow you to cover your roots in a matter of seconds. Again, you want to be careful so that you don’t end up with a lot of dye on your scalp.
