Stress is the worst! Not only are things miserable when I’m stressed, stress reeks havok on everything from my skin to my hair! I can always tell if I need to take a chill pill and just take a breather and relax by looking at my scalp. When things get bad, I always have grey hairs sprouting!! Luckily I’m still in my 20s and still have a full head of hair so I can just plug those babies out, but there’s something about seeing grey hairs that always gets my head spinning and worrying about the day my hair will look like Mrs. Streep in The Devil Wears Prada! My mom is only in her 50’s and she needs to get her hair touched-up every 3 weeks to prevent greys from showing — I can barely find time to schedule my appointment every 3 months! I have discovered a wonderful product though for my stray greys — Grey Root Touch-Up from Avon’s Advanced Techniques line. I have to say I’m partial to Avon after having worked there for a short stint — I love their message about empowering women:) Not all of their products are amazing, but there are definitely some hidden gems in their line. Jump for more!
Root Touch-Up looks just like a mascara stick and is a fast (quick
dry), easy (no mess), way to cover-up grey hairs between coloring. All
you do is comb on the temprorary gel tint formula when you see signs of
grey. I wouldn’t recommend this for anyone with “serious” grey roots or
someone without highlights, but for someone who like me (I’m a dirty
blonde so the fact that this only comes in 3 colors — Light Brown,
Brunette, and Black — is fine since I have a few different shades of
blond/brown in my hair…I used the Light Brown and it blended in
fine), is just looking to cover-up the occasional stray-greys!
On a side-note, 2 wonderful and NATURAL remedies to stress are Bach’s Homeopathic Rescue Remedies, which have targeted homeopathic remedies based on the specific stress you are experiencing and Balance Water which are made with Australian flower essences:)
