Best Root Concealer for Gray Hair

by Melissa

Suffering With Gray Hair? Me Too!

Let’s face it, we are all going to suffer from the plague of gray hair, some earlier than others, but the fact of the matter is, it’s a reality. I was blessed with my fathers genes when it comes to those blessed silver strands (but I also got his thick head of hair). I am not knocking gray hair for the population as a whole. I see women sporting silver strands that look absolutely fabulous, I am just not one of them. And men? In my opinion, men look so handsome with salt and pepper hair; just one more reason why men have it easy

So How Gray am I?

Honestly, I have no idea. What I do know is that about 5 weeks after my appointment at the salon, I begin to look 10 years older just from the gray roots that appear like clockwork.

I try not to go to the salon before 6 weeks. For one, it is down-right expensive, and for two, it makes me feel like I am giving my hair a break. I have been coloring and/or highlighting my hair for 20 years, and the older I get, the more brittle it becomes.

It’s almost funny some days when my hair is acting out, I look in the mirror and see one course hair sticking straight up from the top of my head. Ok, not so funny.

So, How Do I Cover My Gray Hair Between Salon Visits?

I have tried 2 different root concealers, and I will let you in on both of them, but there is one I prefer and I’ll explain why.

Why did I give Gray Away Root Concealer a better review?

Gray Away was the first product that I tried for concealing my roots. It matches my hair color exactly, and as long as it is applied as instructed, it is invisible to anyone regardless of how hard they may look. It dries better than Loreal’s Root Cover Up.

Loreal Root Concealer Is Runner Up

I bought the Loreal product one day when I was out shopping because the store I was in did not have Gray Away. It seems to be harder to find in stores these days.

​The Loreal root concealer matches my hair color, so that was not the problem. What I did not like was even hours later, if I ran my fingers through my hair, the dye would come off on my hands. It literally never fully dried.

For that reason, I would recommend Gray Away as the winner for the best root concealer.

There are many other products that are recommended for covering your roots. Here are a few more (disclaimer: we have only tried the ones reviewed in this post).

Hi there this is kind of of off topic but I was
wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to
get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
I think that you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit,
but instead of that, this is excellent blog. An excellent read.
I’ll definitely be back.

I am curious to find out what blog platform you’re working with? I’m experiencing some small security problems with my latest site and I would like to find something more risk-free. Do you have any solutions?
