How to achieve a natural root touch-up?


When we dye our hair, it also changes the tone of our face. This is evident, for example, with dark colors, which make our skin look smoother (and vice versa). This and others are the virtues of coloring our hair.

However, as our roots become more noticeable as our hair grows, the roots become more evident. Naturally hair has to grow out, but that doesn't mean we should neglect the color we've chosen.

Therefore, at Boutique Deauville, we will tell you how to achieve a natural root touch-up. Based on expert opinion, we will give you the best tips and recommend you the most requested products of the Color Wow brand, number 1 in Montreal.

Join us on this brief tour and discover how easy it is to touch up your roots naturally. But remember: visit your stylist regularly for a more complete advice on this procedure.

That said, let's get started!

Why retouch our hair roots?

It is important to touch up the roots of the hair at least once a month, due to hair growth and the heat of the head, which discolors the hair fiber. The best thing to do is to go to your stylist, but you can also do this procedure at home.

4 tips for a natural root touch-up

From the urgent need to maintain a stylish and well colored hair, here are 4 tips that will make your life easier. By following them, you'll get great results and the process will feel easy.

First tip: wear a coat and gloves

The first thing you should do, once you have conceived the idea of touching up your roots, is to put on a cape. You should check that it is integral, that it fits snugly around your neck and covers your clothes.

In addition, we recommend wearing latex gloves. This way, you will have better ease in the gestures at the time of starting to dye. Also, there will be greater resistance to tearing and your hands will not be stained with ink.

Second tip: divide your hair into sections

Once the cape and gloves are in place, you must divide your hair into 4 sections. To do this, first make a parting in the middle, from the beginning to the nape of the neck. There will be 2 sections left that we will divide in half, at the height of the ear, with the help of clips or rubber bands.

We will do it this way, so that the dye is distributed in a better way. In addition, it will be more comfortable for us to apply the dye at the root, because we will be able to do it section by section, in a more homogeneous way.

Third tip: apply protective cream

Before you start applying the dye, it is necessary to put a protective cream (of your choice) on the contour of your face so that the dye does not stain your skin. Doing this will surely save you a lot of trouble when washing your scalp.

Fourth tip: use a dye similar to the one previously used

It is important that you apply a dye with a similar tone to the one you used previously, so that your hair does not have two different tones. As the intention of retouching the roots is to homogenize the hair tone, we recommend that you ask your stylist which dye is the most convenient for you to use.

Procedure to achieve a natural root touch-up


After the 4 tips above, it is important that you know the procedure to achieve a natural root touch-up in 5 steps. Below, we will explain in detail what you should do.

First step: mix the dye (optional)

One of the first steps is to mix peroxide with a little hair dye. For the mixture to be effective, make sure that the peroxide is twice as much as the hair dye.

That is, if you put 20 ml of dye, it will be 40 ml of peroxide. Then, mix properly with a trowel, in a non-metallic container and proceed with the application.


It is worth clarifying that you should not always make this mixture, unless you consider it necessary, because there are equally effective powder alternatives, but that are applied dry. More on this later.

Second step: apply it where your hair is not colored.

With the help of a brush or your hands, start applying dye from the root to where the color of the old dye begins. Then, to revive the color, you can pass the brush to the rest of the hair, but without going too deep.

This is because it is only intended to enhance the tone, without completely re-dyeing the hair fiber. Also, remember to massage with your fingers after application so that the dye compresses better and you get a better result.

Third step: let stand for a few minutes

After applying the dye, let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes (depending on which one you use) before washing. Also, a tip to revive the color in the lengths of your hair is to massage it, so that the dye goes down to the rest of the hair.

Then, let it sit for another 5 minutes, and proceed with the rinsing.

Fourth step: wash your hair

Once the time has elapsed, you can rinse using conditioner and shampoo. In this way, you will remove the remains of dye not absorbed by the hair and you will be able to see the final result better.

If you used powder hair dye, remember that, unlike traditional hair dyes, they are more water resistant. Therefore, you don't have to worry about washing your hair freely, since you won't lose the root retouching you have done.

Fifth step: clean your face

Finally, wipe your face with a spot remover towel. This procedure will be easier thanks to the protective cream. However, it is very important because the dyes can be imprinted in the dermis if left on for too long.

Once this is done, you will also have completed your root touch-up. Of course, if you have any doubts about it, contact your trusted stylist. Remember that, despite being a simple procedure, with professional advice it can become a priceless moment.
