Dealing with unsightly roots is hands down the worst thing about coloring your hair. As a former unnatural blonde, light brunette, lighter blonde, and peroxide-ish redhead (this was my first coloring experiment, ie accident, which occurred 6 hours before prom), I can confidently say that I’m pretty much an expert in maintaining a presentable head of dyed hair on a college-student-who-does-pageants budget. The crazy thing is that even after going back to my natural color, my hair still pulls a lighter, brassy tint when it’s not toned properly. For this very reason, I have to blur my roots every so often to avoid an unattractive, metallic ombre vibe.

Since one of the main reasons I went back to brunette was to save money on hair maintenance– and to give my head a much needed break from chemicals, I refuse to run back to the salon more than once every 3 months. Unfortunately, my roots just can’t seem to get on my schedule, and they start acting up just 3 or 4 weeks after my last treatment, so upon a fellow blogger recommendation, I decided to give John Frieda Root Blur™ Colour Blending Concealer (Chestnut to Espresso For Medium to Dark Brunette) on my last shopping expedition at Target.

John Frieda Root Blur™ Colour Blending Concealer literally blends away grays or root regrowth with a single stroke. The dual-shade palette of their Colour Blending Concealer gives you the freedom to customize your shade and blend hair roots to perfection. This mineral-pressed powder instantly adheres to conceal your roots and stays right where you put it until your next shampoo. It’s a fool-proof, temporary root solution that’s quick, affordable, and easy to apply with a light, weightless feel– not sticky or stiff, which would make it a definite no-go.

If you don’t have dark brown hair (how dare you), Root Blur also comes in Platinum to Champagne For Light to Medium Blonde, Honey to Caramel For Medium to Dark Blonde, and Amber to Maple For Light to Medium Brunette. To try John Frieda Root Blur for yourself, head to Target– they’ve got a fancy endcap display, so you can see all the best and newest hair care trends. Also, if you buy three John Frieda products, you’ll get a $5 Target gift card through March 5th.

Once again, good old John Frieda didn’t let me down. Have y’all given Root Blur a try? What did you think?

    I’m actually letting my hair go grey. I have been greying since I was 17 and I’m allergic to black and brown hair dye. I have been using henna for over 10 years and I’m tired of doing it, it takes too long. So since grey is the big thing right now, I’m letting it just be.
