Best for: full cover­age

Garnier Ex­press Re­touch Root Con­cealer, £7.99 What’s that there? I’ve got a friend who’s a se­ri­ous hair dyer who swears by this re­toucher. sim­ply dab it onto sil­ver flecks, wait a few min­utes, then brush through to zap away greys. how’s the hair? as fresh as the day it was ac­tu­ally coloured. the con­cealer is wa­ter-re­sis­tant too, so it doesn’t run in the rain. Best for: pre­ci­sion

Bum­ble and Bum­ble Color Stick, £23 What’s that there? this creamy pen­cil is a dod­dle to use and com­pletely mess-free (it didn’t trans­fer onto my skin at all). but what I love most about it is how pre­cise and cus­tomised you can get the cover­age – I could re­ally get in there and “scrib­ble” over prob­lem ar­eas.

how’s the hair? the stick works great for tiny touch-ups (in­clud­ing fill­ing in sparse eye­brows like mine). the colour is build­able and com­pletely be­liev­able – it’s like make-up for your hair! Best for: pro re­sults

Josh Wood Colour Root Smudger, £12 What’s that there? Cre­ated by ex­pert colourist and beauty ed favourite, Josh Wood, this lit­er­ally does what it says on the tin – smudge roots. Just twist and squeeze to load the colour, then ap­ply. easy. how’s the hair? brighter, fresher and hardly root-y at all. sounds weird, but it was ac­tu­ally en­joy­able to ap­ply it too – I felt quite the pro­fes­sional! Best for: Quick re­sults

L’Oréal Paris Magic Re­touch, £5.99 What’s that there? For those, “oh god, my roots!” mo­ments, this am­mo­nia-free, in­stant spray con­cealer re­vi­talises your hair, pronto. the pin­point mi­crod­if­fuser metic­u­lously cov­ers prob­lem ar­eas in a rich pig­ment that lasts un­til sham­pooed out. how’s the hair? If you’re time-starved (who isn’t?), then this will be your roots-no-more go-to. I did have to be care­ful not to squirt my fore­head, but the cover­age is in­sanely good. Best for: high­lights

Color WOW Root Cover Up, £28.50 What’s that there? Clev­erly housed in a tote-friendly pal­ette, it comes with a dou­bleended brush so you can ap­ply the pow­der to large or small sec­tions. how’s the hair? It takes a lit­tle pa­tience to get the de­sired cover­age, so I use it for ex­tend­ing high­lights or dis­guis­ing fine greys rather than root re­growth, but the fin­ish is great. w&h
