Roots running wild? Unless you’re going for the ombré look, those grown out streaks are in need of some serious camo. Fix them yourself (seriously!). While only temporary, these tricks are super simple and you can do them right at home. Whether you’re skill set includes coloring your own hair or not, Team MDC has you covered on all hair fronts. Now let’s get those roots into hiding!
1. Pump Up the Volume.
A salon-quality blowout creates body and volume that can temporarily camouflage roots and strays, so that you can go a few weeks longer between coloring appointments.
3. Dry Shampoo. Use a dry shampoo based on your current hair color (whitish powder for blondes and brown tint for brunettes), to not only add body and lift, but disguise those pesky roots until your next wash!
4. Smart Styling. Here’s an idea — how about simply wearing your hair in a style that hides your roots, too? Here are some options!
Slicked Back Pony. Wet looking hair appears to be darker, thus blending in your color mismatch!
