Maintaining your hair colour can be expensive and time-consuming, as new hair growth (roots) need to be dyed to match the rest of your hair. Root touch-up products provide a way to save money by extending time between salon visits. These products vary in price and availability, but can all be bought in stores or online. Make sure that you try to match your hair colour to the colour of your touch-up product, otherwise your hair will be two noticeably different shades.


Clairol Nice n' Easy Root Touch-Up comes in three colours ranging from dark to light auburn. Clairol claims that these three colours closely match 34 different hair colours from various brands; this allows you to use Root Touch-Up regardless of which product you used to colour the rest of your hair. The colour kit comes with an applicator brush and, once applied, the dye develops in 10 minutes. The resulting hair colour is semi-permanent and lasts for three weeks.


L'Oreal Root Rescue comes in 12 colours, including two redhead-friendly colours called light auburn and dark auburn. Light brown may also be compatible with some shades of red hair. Root Rescue colour kits come with an applicator to help you deliver colour where it is most needed. Colors contain low levels of ammonia, develop in 10 minutes and last three to four weeks. Root Rescue products are guaranteed by L'Oreal to match any hair colour, including professional salon colours.

Oscar Biandi

Oscar Biandi Pronto Colore Root Touch-Up & Highlighting Pen contains a temporary dye that travels easily for quick touch-ups. It is more expensive than the Clairol and L'Oreal products. The product comes in six colours; however, warm reddish-brown is the only colour suitable for redheads. The colour contains conditioners to soften your hair and washes out with one shampoo. The Highlighting Pen is safe for pregnant women to use since it is free of harsh chemicals, such as ammonia.
