Our hair grows half an inch every month. When you get your greys covered or coloured then this is undoubtedly bound to happen after every month or so. You do need a root touch-up because the hair will keep growing. Firstly you will notice two or three and eventually, the whole of your roots will need a touch-up. Mind you, the hair colour in itself also fades along with the hair growth so both these factors contribute. Therefore, here is a root touch-up guide for grey hair at home.
Another negative trait of having a head full of greys is you have to be at it after a couple of weeks or a month religiously relying upon the speed of your hair growth. The look of healthy and beautiful hair constantly needs the attention of touch-ups; you either go to a salon or do it yourself. Whether you are in your 20s, 30s, 40s, or so on, to maintain the conformity of your hair and not have an awkward look please do the touch-ups at home and save huge bucks from a salon. Although if you choose to keep your hair looking like salt and pepper (a term used for people flaunting both black and white hair) that is completely acceptable too, you do you!
