With salons in Rhode Island closing right now, I’m stuck doing my own hair. You know what that means, right? If you’re used to getting your hair colored it’s all on you. I’m sharing my blonde root touch up secrets today because I know I’m going to be covering my roots over the next few weeks and I also know I’m not alone in this, too! This whole root touch up at home thing has me nervous!
Blonde Root Touch Up at Home
I’ve been dying my hair blonde for the last 10 years. I’m actually starting to go gray a bit, but the hair that I prefer is always (and will always be) blonde. Since my hair salon visits are going to be paused for a little, I’m all about blonde root touch up secrets at home. It’s not going to be easy, but it’s going to be something I need to stay on top of because I’m still online shooting videos and creating content every single day.
When you’re looking for some blonde root touch up products and options, the good news is that there are a bunch of options out there on how to touch up roots at home and how to dye roots. I actually have 2 products that I love and swear by, but I was excited to see so many other options out there, too for people. Let me know in the comments, too if I’m missing anything that YOU use that you love and swear by, too.
