There is no easier way for a beautiful hair color to turn worn out and shabby than with dramatic visible grow out. When your hair has been colored using hair dye, no matter how fantastic and beautiful your hair color is, the new hair growth will show a line of demarcation. This new outgrowth of your natural hair is your roots. How conspicuous the line is depends on how different your natural hair is from the new hair color you have used. The more different your hair color is, the more evident your hair grow out will be.
Root touch ups, to erase this demarcation line, are usually needed anywhere between 3 to 5 weeks after your color appointment.
However, this can fluctuate depending on the color variance and how fast your hair grows. A root touch-up is the application of hair dye to the roots of the hair, to disguise the fact that hair has grown out. This will enable your hair color to not only last longer but also continue to look fresh and beautiful. A root touch up also is better for your hair, as you are not doing a full hair dye at every appointment. There is nothing you can do about your hair growing; it is a part of life. However, you can maintain your color by scheduling consistent root touch ups.
As the name states a root touch up is coloring only the new root grow out of your hair, where you do not have any hair color. When having a touch up done it is important to use the same shade and the same color as your original full hair color to blend well and not leave another unsightly demarcation line as one color meets another, different, color.
A root touch up is also a great way to save money as well, as it elongates the time between full services by several weeks. Although a root touch up will not refresh the full length of your hair color on its own, there other services that can give you that benefit, it will however give you coverage and keep your hair looking natural and attractive between treatments.
The application of color to the hair roots requires skill and experience to achieve the desired effect. Coloring of the hair is a process that should not be taken lightly as it needs to be customized to the specific chemistry and tones of your hair.
One of the advantages of having your hair professionally colored is having an experienced colorist that keeps your color requirements on file. During your consultation they will be able to help you choose a color that matches the rest of your hair and also account for any changes in your hair grow out. As we age and even during seasonal changes our hair may grow out lighter or darker than before. It is important to have a skilled and experienced stylist that can adjust your hair color as needed to keep your hair looking consistent and lovely.
The professional hair color service such as a root touch up, also includes a luxurious scalp & hand massage to relax and pamper you as well as a soothing shampoo, conditioning treatment followed by a blow dry and styling to showcase your new hair color. This ensures you leave in a state of tranquility, looking your best.
When you have your roots touched up between treatments by an experienced and trained colorist the colorist will make sure your hair never makes that turn from beautiful to shabby. They will keep your hair coloring look fresh and gorgeous.
