The new precise way to cover grays
I’ve been highlighting (or bleaching) my hair since I was 13, so it’s no shock that I haven’t seen my natural hair color in decades. But after going dark a few months ago, it was a shock to learn that I had a few gray hairs. Fortunately they don’t require major intervention or the need to adhere to a strict color schedule, but sometimes I’d like to hide them (at least temporarily). Root touch-up sprays and powders aren’t called for just yet, so that’s why I’m into Rita Hazan’s new Root Concealer Touch Up Stick.
Similar to the many chubby makeup pencils you probably already have, this cream-based root concealer makes it easy to place color exactly where you want it (rather than all over). Perfect for around the hairline because it also helps control those baby hairs, this stick also works wonders for brows. I am emphatically anti-brow-coloring after trying it once with disastrous results, but this multitasker both covers grays and keeps unruly brows in place. (I haven’t noticed any gray brows—yet—but I’ll be ready when I do.)
The holiday season is about to hit full tilt, so it may be hard to squeeze in a salon visit. But with this stick you can stretch the time between color appointments and no one will be the wiser!
