Do you have dark roots that are driving you crazy?
Can’t get to a salon at the minute?
Wish that the two colours blended better?
The downside to having blonde hair is that unfortunately when your roots start to grow out, they can look quite noticeable, especially if you are naturally dark.
I am going to share with you
The first tip is fairly straightforward and one that does not require any colour.
This is one I tend to recommend to my clients in between appointments, purely as it is a quick fix.
Simply spray a dry shampoo directly onto the root area, use your hair dryer to get rid of the white powder look and finally give it a good brush through.
This will lighten up your root colour slightly and take away the harsh line effect from the two colours.
My go-go dry shampoo is the Batiste Dry Shampoo, it comes in all different fragrances, but I love the ‘Clean and Classic’.
It is great as it is lightweight, it doesn’t leave a lot of residues and the fragrance is lovely.
You can also use these to give the hair some volume and texture.
Stylist Tip – If your hair tends to get fairly oily, simply spray a small amount after you have washed your hair and it will preserve it for longer.
This tip is a little more complicated and involves getting your hands into some colour...
We are going to create the look in this photo, this client previously had outgrown highlights and just wanted to blend the two colours from her root to her ends.
Please note – This technique will not change the color on the ends of your hair.
I love this color as it is easy to apply, it spreads through the hair easily and the colors are beautiful!
Your Natural Shade
Base Colour in Wella
This color is not intended to cover more than 30% white hair.
Apply firstly down your parting and then from your crown to behind each ear, like the picture.
Once you have your four sections, you want to take smaller vertical sections to ensure the whole head is covered.
Develop the color for 20 minutes, refer to the manufacturer's instructions as this may vary depending on the brand you use.
Now you have your roots done, it is always a great idea to refresh the ends. Purple/Silver shampoos are perfect for this!!
They work by neutralizing any brassy tones in the hair, leaving it looking fresh.
My favourite is the Fanola No Yellow Shampoo as it gives a beautiful finish to the hair, leaving it feeling smooth and soft.
I always recommend only using this if you feel your hair needs it. Here are a few key tips for using this shampoo:

You should now have beautifully blended roots into blonde ends!
