I am in no way a fashion, beauty, make-up or hair blogger. In fact, I really know next to nothing about any of those things, so the fact that I’m writing this little post is pretty hilarious if you know me. I was going to post this last week, but I was afraid everyone would think it was an April Fools Day joke!
But, I have a new hair product that I just can’t live without, so I wanted to let you know about it, too. I’m a helper, y’all.
When I was pregnant with Zack (who is now 9), I started getting gray hair. My gray hair isn’t the type where you have a few strands here and there. Oh, no! I have patches of gray on my temples and around my ears.
Sure, everyone (or almost everyone) has some grays, but mine are incredibly stubborn! It takes about 10 days of me having my hair professionally colored for them to start showing again. I have learned that if I keep my hair blonde instead of brunette, the grays aren’t quite as obvious, but they still show.
So, my hair stylist recently told me about a product to cover grays called Watercolors Root Concealer (Amazon affiliate link). It comes in a little aerosol can (just like spray paint!) and you spray it on your hair when you need to cover your grays (or roots in general). It’s water soluble, so it washes out when you shampoo your hair. It comes in different colors, and you choose the one to use based on the color of your hair. Spray a little and it’s a lighter color – spray a lot and it’s darker. You can basically customize it for your own hair color by controlling the amount you put on your hair. Here is a You Tube video that explains the process well.
I use it in the places where I can see my grays. When my hair is down, I use it on my part and on my temples. If I’m wearing my hair in a ponytail, I use it on my temples and above my ears. Since I don’t wash my hair every single day, it stays in place until the next time I wash it.
Here’s a close up shot of my part, before and after I sprayed on the Watercolors.
I’ve tried all sort of stuff over the years – root touch up dye, hair mascara, special colored shampoos – but this is the most natural-looking and easiest to use product that I’ve tried. I know that not everyone has the gray problem that I have, but I wanted to spread the word to those of you who do! It’s also great if your roots have grown out and you need something to hold you over until your next salon visit.
I am able to buy Watercolors at my salon, so you may be able to find it at yours, too. If not, I found Watercolors Root Concealer on Amazon (affiliate link).
Had you ever heard of this product? Do you need it as badly as I do?
