A great (temporary) way to cover roots

Nobody likes roots, right? The hardest part about coloring your hair is the way it starts to look about 3 weeks after you have it done. That is when the roots start to show and keeping up with them can be time-consuming and expensive. I used to get so mad that I paid so much for highlights and/or low lights and my hair looked bad after just a few weeks. It took everything in my power not to run to the store and just dye it myself. I didn’t and now I do not have to because I just got my hands on a great product that is simple to use and covers roots nicely.

MimicColor (above) is a cosmetic you select in the shade you want your hair to be and apply it to your roots with a brush. It is water resistant and has a bit of a non-greasy clay-like consistency. You cover your roots with it and it washes out very easily. It is a great way to lengthen the time between your trips to the salon.

My hair is highlight to be dark blonde, but really grows in brown and I was surprised how easily and well the blonde shade of MimicColor covered it. I can only imagine it would be great for covering gray roots if it worked so well to lighten my hair. It doesn’t seem to wipe off easily so it is a product men could use to touch up their facial hair or eyebrow as well.

Of the new types of products I have tried recently this is one of my favorites. I think you could probably have a little fun with this too if you wanted to add a little lightness or darkness to your hair. It is easy to use, not messy at all and looks pretty natural. While $48 may seem a little steep this is a product that looks like it will last a long time (at least for coverage of roots).

MimicColor $48, is available at select salons and online.
