My roots are GREY. I’m not referring to a smattering of greys. Like tee-hee, look at this pesky grey hair, I’ll just pluck it out with a tweezer. No ma’am. I have a ton. I can’t even part my hair too aggressively without putting them on blast. Three weeks after I get my color done, I have to exclusively wear it curly because it masks my roots. I’ve tried the root touchup mascara wand thingies, but they always make things so gummy at the roots (it’s cool if you wash your hair every day…but not if you’re like me, and water touches your hair roughly four times a year). I never considered touching up my own roots, because at-home haircolor is a beauty landmine. So random, the results. Either you make it out alive — with passably pretty color — or you end up resembling a wisecracking waitress at Mel’s Diner. The sassiest member of your great aunt’s Bible study group.
Guys? L’oreal just changed everything in one fell swoop (always wondered what a “fell swoop” was). They’ve legit obliterated the at-home haircolor competition. L’oreal’s new Mousse Absolue is the industry’s first reusable haircolor…and it’s literally the easiest process I’ve ever seen. You press a button, it mixes your color for you, and then it comes out as a mousse that you can use however you want. Like, you can massage it from root to tip for allover color, or simply apply it to the roots for a grey touchups (or color touchup between appointments). It’s. So. Easy. Nothing to mix, nothing complicated. The only thing? Definitely go a shade up, even if it seems too dark in the packaging. Mine is auburn-brown with golden highlights, but the first shade I tried (Volcanic Brown) didn’t really help the greys. Fabulous Chocolate Brown did, though!! I just can’t get over the reusable factor…so smart.
