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 coming is your roots. How conspicuous the line 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 grows out will be. Not only do your roots suffer however, from time after color but the ends of your hair can also fade and dull with time.
A root touch-up the application of hair dye to the roots of the hair, to conceal 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. To truly have the best color results you can also have the ends of your hair refreshed that become faded from shampooing and daily life. Root touch-ups 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.
There is nothing you can do about your hair growing, it is a part of life, and you can, however, maintain your color by scheduling consistent root touch-ups and refresh the ends of your hair at the same time.
Root Retouch Process
As the name states a root touch up is coloring only the 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. This will ensure that you have consistent color throughout your hair.
A root touch up is 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, there are other services that can give you that benefit, it will, however, give you coverage and keep your hair looking natural and attractive between treatments.
Refreshing the ends of your hair is also very important. The ends of your hair can become faded and dull after frequent shampooing, the lightening power of the sun and everyday hair styling. When you have your roots touched up, the stylist can refresh the ends of your hair at the same time.
