You know how once in a blue moon you have one of those “Why didn’t I think of that?” moments? You might have one in just a second. If you retouch your roots by yourself at home, you need to read this!
At first glance, this rake thing might look a little questionable—maybe even a little scary. But just how scary can something be if it’s pink, right? Roots Only is actually a very easy-to-use, no-frills hair color applicator that is truly a lifesaver for people who just need a touch-up at home. With the help of a hollow-tipped comb applicator attached to a bottle…retouching your roots seriously doesn’t get any more simple. Instead of mixing your preferred hair color in the bottle that’s usually included in the box you purchase it in, you mix it inside of the Roots Only bottle. While the use of the Roots Only applicator doesn’t change anything about the processing time, it definitely makes it easier to apply—by saving time and reducing the risk of overlapping your color (which can lead to over-processed, damaged hair and uneven color). I was concerned it would prove to be gimmicky, but not so!
To use; make sure you’ve brushed all of the tangles out of your hair, mix your choice of color inside of Roots Only, and squeeze the bottle while you comb it through your hair. You’ll need to keep the nozzle tips pretty close to your scalp and maintain consistent pressure on the bottle during your application for best results, but it is fairly effortless. What I think I love most is that I can actually color the hair on the back of my head without getting frustrated! I’ve tried to employ my husband for the job in the past, and let’s just say—I now only ask for his assistance in the most dire of hair color emergencies. After using, wash out your Roots Only bottle and applicator nozzle for your next use. File this one under, Fab Find.
