One way to quickly cut down your hair-coloring expenses is to extend the time in between hair-coloring. It doesn’t matter if you are a salon services or a home coloring kind of girl, extending the time in between coloring, even by a few weeks, will reduce your overall yearly hair services cost.
One of my favorite little tricks is the use of a product that touches up the roots with Tween Time Hair Crayon. This is especially useful on grey hairs, but does not work as well if you are bleaching your hair. If you have very dark roots, there is not much to be done to lighten them without bleach.
If you are covering grey, then this is something to seriously consider. My favorite is ‘Tween Time . It is a like a big crayon that you color the grey strands in your roots with while your hair is wet. Then blow dry and style as you normally would. It comes in several shades. I’ve found the basic medium brown color worked for several different shades of brown I’ve had over the years.
Some products I didn’t like:
- Dreamlook Greyfree- Instant Temporary Hair Color Touch-Up – This is too sticky and leaves the hair really heavy. It made the roots look greasy from the beginning.
- Roux Fanci-full Rinse – This doesn’t color the grey enough. My mom tried to use the grey color to freshen up her grey and it just looked dull and heavy.
Maybe these might work for you. If you have any tips or tricks, please feel free to share them with us.
