TouchBack

Instant Root Touch-Up

Rich Black

Item #: 2216183

Stretch The Time Between Colorings...The Easiest Touch-Up Ever! TouchBack's marker delivers the perfect amount of color...continuously. The Fiber Flow applicator applies real temporary hair color to gray roots...precisely. TouchBack is the fastest touch-up for gray roots. Dries in a minute. Won't flake or rub off - even after brushing.

Real Hair Color...Bonds To The Hair TouchBack actually bonds to the hair, blending beautifully with permanent hair color for a totally natural look. (Unlike hair mascaras, crayons, gels and powders, which dull the hair and flake off when brushed. TouchBack's formula uses certified hair colors, but without harsh chemicals - no ammonia or peroxide - so, it's gentle on your hair.
The TouchBack marker should be applied to dry hair. For resistant gray hair, hold the marker on the hair for a few seconds to deposit additional color. Mousse, gels and other styling products may be used prior to applying TouchBack, and hair spray can be used over it. TouchBack includes a special comb for use at temples and hairline. The comb acts as a skin shield for those areas. Slide the comb under the hair, as close to the scalp as possible, then apply TouchBack. To remove TouchBack, simply shampoo out.

Precautions: TouchBack contains ingredients, which may cause skin irritation on certain individuals. A preliminary patch test, according to accompanying directions, should first be made. This product must not be used for dyeing eyelashes or eyebrows; to do so may cause blindness. TouchBack does not contain Paraphenylenediamine (PPD)

                  I have tried spray root touch up products and they are so hard to control, and the color just doesn't stay put. This product is like a big fat Sharpie. It is so easy to apply the color only where needed. This gets me through the sixth week between salon visits! If you have grey roots peeking out...and you hate them as much as I hate mine, check this stuff out!

                      Comments about TouchBack Instant Root Touch-Up:

                      The gray roots at my temples peeks through only after a day of getting it dyed at the hair salon and I've tried every root touch-up product out there and am still searching. This is essentially a fat slanted marker and for the price I would have thought it would have worked a lot better but it works no better than cheaper products and in fact the felt tip makes it harder to use for my purposes than a mascara wand. You have to be able to press down in the hair in order for the color to transfer which is fine for the hair on top of your head but if you do that to the gray hair at your temples, you wind up with a big blotch on your skin that you then have to wipe up which then removes the color from your hair. If you hold your hair up and out and try to hold the marker tip on the hair, the color doesn't transfer to the hair no matter how long you hold it there. So, I'm still searching for some touch up tool that works fast and/or some coloring that is safe to use every day and actually covers the gray.
