Regardless of whether you’re a balayage blonde, coppery brunette, or candy apple red, if you color your hair, you know that dealing with the inevitable root grow-out when you’re in between salon appointments can be a more than just a slight inconvenience. If you’re like me and tend to let your highlights grow out inches before buckling down and scheduling an appointment, you know that finding a fool-proof solution for concealing (or at least, softening) dark roots isn’t exactly easy. I’ve often relied on white-hued dry shampoo to help blend the line of demarcation between my naturally brunette mane and my bleached blonde strands, but once I discovered some of the below root-rescuing hair products to push back my expensive visits with my colorist, I will never go back my little (and, not very effective) DIY hack.

Pushing back your pricey appointment with your colorist just became a bit less painful thanks to these game-changing touch-up and hair-enhancing miracle workers. While they’re certainly not a permanent fix, they’re great for those troublesome times when you’re in a pinch before a big event or simply in between paychecks. Whether you prefer a quick spray-on formula or shine-enhancing color gloss, we’ve outlined a few of our favorite color-reviving products to help get you by when you just can’t make it in to see your colorist.
