How can I keep my hair looking great despite obvious roots? They’re growing in fast and furious but my next salon appointment is still weeks away!
Lots of us have been there—the stage where you have nearly an inch of apparent re-growth but touching-up your dye any sooner could cause considerable damage to your hair. Start by adopting a more relaxed method to styling your hair—it will hide the growth much better than a style that’s carefully placed and polished. Create a messy part by shaking your head and letting your locks fall naturally. Then, spritz your roots with a dry shampoo, which will help extract and prevent excess oil from weighing down your hair throughout the day. One that dries clear is way better than one that leaves a white residue on your dark roots. Try Oscar Blandi Pro Invisible Volumizing dry shampoo ($11 at Sephora), which dries invisibly and will go completely undetected on your roots, save for its undercover job of obscuring their unsightliness.
