A Guide to Disguising Grown-Out Roots

So you colored your hair for many years to hide some greys. Or perhaps you wanted to try a new shade. Now you want to get back your natural hair color! No matter why you want to transition to your natural color, the problem is: that after dyeing your hair so many times, how can you go color-free or flaunt more natural-looking tresses?

As anyone who has struggled with getting rid of hair colors knows, the roots are the most tormenting part to work with. Sure, you can overcome an inch of regrowth with a trip to your stylist, but what if you want to grow out your hair completely? The roots are continuously growing, and they don’t look so great if you have been treating your hair with a color that isn’t close to your hair’s natural shade. 

Also, remember that the roots become more visible when you wear your hair into an updo with extensions. But a professional hair extension installation can help disguise the roots. And for this, you must know how to put your hair up with extensions (if you want to apply the wefts at home). Otherwise, it would be best to visit your hairdresser to put in the extensions. 

It is undoubtedly tough to disguise the grown-out roots, but did you know that the right techniques can make the process less intimidating? 

With this in mind, let’s have a look at some proven methods to hide your grown-out roots:

Get the Ombré Color

This trick works best for those who have colored their hair in lighter shades than their natural hair color for many years. Ombre works great if your roots are darker than the color you want to grow. You must be willing for a professional dyeing session at a salon to make the blending technique work. But how does this method work, you ask! When your natural hair shade blends with your dyed shade, it creates a kind of effect that camouflages the grown-out roots. 

Apply a Glaze

You probably don’t want to color your hair because that’s the reason behind the problem you’re facing now. You want to grow out your roots and get back your natural hair color. This is where you can take a different route: use a semi-permanent glaze to disguise the roots. This trick gives perfect results as it conceals the roots while they grow. 

Consider applying a tinted glaze on your entire head because doing so will fuse your colored hair with your hair’s natural shade. Even though it won’t disguise the roots 100%, it surely will tone down most of the obvious ones. 

Get Frequent Trims

Frequent haircuts help your natural hair grow out to meet the dyed portion in the center much faster. This way, you’ll generally spend less time working to disguise the roots. But that doesn’t mean you must visit the salon every week or cut off your hair altogether. 

Trimming your hair three to four times a year works well because it eliminates split ends, helps with healthy hair growth, and cuts down the distance between the roots and the remaining portion of the hair strands.   

Blend With Dye

This method is best for those who want a quick fix. But again, it involves dyeing your hair. The trick with this option is to get a root touch-up or base shade as close to your roots as possible. It is good to carry on this practice until your hair has reached the desired length.  

Wear Hair Extensions

This is yet another quick but temporary fix that works best with frequent hair trims. Clip-in human hair extensions can hide grown-out roots while allowing you to grow your hair. Plus, they make your hair look thick, fuller, long, and luscious. And once your hair has grown out, you can go extension-free and flaunt your gorgeous natural hair instead.
