A Quick Spray Does Away With The Grey!
(Please note - the following is NOT a paid review - it is just a Fab & Fru Find we love and wanted to share with you!)
I've found it - a hair product I cannot live without. All of you ladies out there who battle with grey roots - help is just a spray away… So, I've written before about my pesky grey hair. Well, to be honest it is actually stark white hair - ALL of it. But of course you wouldn't know it to look at me - because I color it constantly to bring back the chestnut warmth of my youth. And while I still love my favorite at home D.I.Y. haircolor, Naturtint, and even splurge at the salon on occasion, I found a new product which has taken first place in my heart (and on my head)!
Rita Hazan Root Concealer
As I mentioned, my hair is 100 % grey - and it grows like a weed. I started going grey at 17 and I am 39 now - so it's been over 20 years of dealing with this crap. Basically, if I get my hair colored on Monday, by Friday grey roots are popping up, mocking me. Between running a business and being a mom, I just didn't have the time or energy to keep up with weekly hair maintenance. Which led to me walking around sporting a white streak in the middle of my head most days - as you can imagine, not my best look. And that's when Rita walked into my life…
I admit, I was a bit skeptical when I saw the can of Rita Hazan Root Concealer sitting on the shelf. A little can of spray paint for your roots? It seemed to good to be true. I'd tried other temporary covers from hair crayons to mascara wands before - and never been happy with the results. But, catching a glimpse of my skunk like hair in the mirror, I bought it and hoped for the best.
Let me cut to the chase - this product literally changed my life. Here's why - now when I wake up in the morning and see grey popping up, I just lightly spray a little Root Concealer on my part, and in literally 5 seconds the grey is gone! Granted, it's just a temporary fix, but that's all I need. Plus, it is actually water resistant and stays in until shampoo'd out. Since I don't shampoo my hair everyday anyway, it can last for days.
Some of the reviews I read moaned about the $24 price tag because it's just a one ounce can. But, to be honest with you, 1 can lasts a long time - I use it constantly and it probably lasted me a month. Plus, the small can means you can easily take it with you. In my opinion, at $24 a can, this product has been a totally Fab & Fru find. Even my D.I.Y. hair color was costing me about $15 every ten days or so - and I was tossing most of it away because I was just covering my roots. With the root concealer, I have significantly spread out the time between having to do full hair colorings - so instead of taking $15 and an hour to do it once every 7-10 days, I now do a full hair color about once every 2 months, using the root concealor in between for touch ups! The savings in time and money have been significant.
Easy to Buy, Easy To Use
Some salons have started to carry Rita's product, but you can also get it from Sephora. I would definitely recommend watching her how-to video before using it - though the can is pretty easy to use I have I misfired a few times and sprayed my face by accident! It comes in a variety of colors to help out all of us grey-rooted gals. There are very, VERY few beauty products I would say I can't live without - but this is definitely one of them.
