Don't Re-Dye All Your Hair When Your Roots Start Showing
If you do, the new layer of color will make your ends darker (if you're adding color) or lighter (if you're bleaching) than the rest of your hair—and don't you hate it when one beauty problem begets another? Instead, just touch up your roots, says Sharon Dorram-Krause, of Sharon Dorram Color at Sally Hershberger Uptown salon in New York City. For a remarkably simple and easy way to cover regrowth, try Marc Anthony Pro Root Touch-Up ($10); it lets you combine the developer and color without any messy pouring or mixing. Just attach the two components, twist the top half to open the valves, shake it up, and brush it on.
