Q: Hi- does this also paint your skin in addition to the hair? I'd like to consider this as a solution to grow out my gray without the horrible 'skunk' line, but I also don't want it to show up on my skin...

submitted by ejames - 5 years ago
  • A: I would suggest using a towel or bag to protect clothing and skin below your hair line. It can "freckle" skin and clothing.

    submitted byHair Problems - 2 years ago
  • A: Hey Ejames, we appreciate your interest in our Magic Root Cover Up. This product temporarily applies color to grays. For best results, we suggest you hold the can 4-6 inches from hair. Spray color onto new growth and partly through the length of the hair to blend in the color. We hope this was helpful!

Q: I have light brown hair. Which one is lighter in color, Light Golden Brown or Light Brown?

submitted by Debby - 3 months ago

Both colors will be about the same shade level but, the Light Golden Brown will have more warmth to it, the Light Brown will be neutral and works best on hair ash tones, I hope this helps!

The red shade comes out brown and looks ashy and dull even if only a little is used. Also if you scratch your scalp your fingernail will look dirty.

Too Drying For My Hair

2 out of 5 stars
Thumbs down graphic, would not recommend
JF - 17 days ago, Verified purchaser
Very drying. It made hair so dry that it was like straw. Had to wash it out. It covered well so if you can deal with the dryness it’s fine. Good thing it washes out in one wash. Experienced some transfer but not that bad. Need to have a good hand at spraying lightly and evenly. Otherwise, if you use too much it will have more transfer. Won’t be buying again but had to eliminate before spending 3x as much. Also, it’s really not that much in the can. Can’t say I paid attention to the weight before I bought though

I want to leave an outstanding review on this product. I’m so afraid they will discontinue it and I’ve never found anything that works so good on my hair. I was a true strawberry blonde all my life until I started to gray. NOTHING covered the gray or looked like my natural hair color till this came along. And it’s so easy. I just lightly spritz it on and brush it thru and it looks so natural. Love it love it love it!!!

I use this cover up between coloring sessions and it always does the job. One trick is to hold the spray a bit further out so it doesn’t clump on your hair.
