Joan Rivers Great Hair Day

Joan Rivers Great Hair Day

I hate gray roots. They have a nasty habit of peeking out from beautifully cut and blown-out hair — belying that vibrant, stylish look you work hard to achieve.

As my hair grows fast and I refuse to have touch-ups every couple of weeks, I’ve tried just about every method of covering up roots, from crayons to mascara-type wands.

I’ve settled on two methods that work pretty well. QVC sent me samples of the Joan Rivers Great Hair Day, a compact of pressed powder that comes with a good brush. The brush allows for easy distribution of the powder, which stays put until I shampoo. The compact costs about $30, which isn’t bad because it lasts through many, many uses.

The other cover-up I like is Rita Hazan’s Root Concealer, which I’ve purchased from Sephora ($25). This is a spray that comes with a nozzle, so you can zero in on the roots without over-spraying. The two blonde shades are perfect for gray roots (I use the dark blonde), and the roots stay covered up until the next shampoo. This product turns out to be a little more expensive because the spray doesn’t last as long as the powder, but it is the method I like best.

If anyone out there has tried better methods of covering up gray roots, I’d love to hear about them.
