As we all hunker down in our homes in hopes of shrinking the spread of coronavirus, there is something that’s getting decidedly bigger — our roots. Yes, many of us are desperately missing our stylists right now, as the dark and/or grey area on the top of our heads becomes harder to ignore. Thankfully, there is a temporary solution: root cover-ups, in the form of spray or powder. For those of you who are interested in spraying the grey away, we’ve identified the best-selling and best-reviewed cover-ups on Amazon.

#1 – L’Oreal Paris Magic Root Cover Up Gray Concealer Spray

The #1-selling root cover-up on Amazon, with more than 6500 reviews, this gray concealer spray is effective in a pinch and comes in eight shades, from light blonde to black. Not convinced? Check out Eva Longoria using it (granted, she’s a L’Oreal spokeswoman, but a convincing pitch nonetheless)…

Buy it on Amazon for $8.61. And for more targeted coverup, try their pen.

#2 – COLOR WOW Root Cover Up

This mineral powder offers a more dimensional look, offering the option to “paint” and extend highlights without peroxide. It can also fill in gaps for thicker, fuller looking hair. Tip: best used on slightly dirty hair. Buy on Amazon for $34.50.

#3 – Style Edit Root Concealer


The Style Edit spray is more expensive than the L’Oreal one, but it also has more positive reviews. Users rave about this root concealer, calling it “the best stuff ever!” and claiming it “adheres well, doesn’t smear, is precise and not messy to apply.” Buy on Amazon for $24.99.

#4 – Rootflage

I have personal experience with this root touch-up, having used it pre-quarantine life to extend my time in between salon visits. So I can attest that it works and definitely minimizes any appearance of dark or grey hairs poking through. My only suggestion: less is more. Also be sure to steer clear of your part, or else it will look oddly painted. Buy on Amazon for $22.99. (Again, less is more with this powder, so it should last a long time.)
