Covering grey hair can be a pain, especially when you find yourself between colourings with noticeable grey roots. Instead of constantly dyeing your hair, which can be expensive and cause damage to your hair, try using a simple hair colour touch-up stick. These sticks are available from beauty supply outlets and some chemists and provide a temporary fix to cover the grey without a salon visit or harsh chemicals.
