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)

    Comments about TouchBack Instant Root Touch-Up:

    Loved it. Product wasn't exactly the same color as the rest of my hair, but it was very easy to use and looked much better than grey roots. It did take a few minutes to dry, but it wasn't very wet.

            Doesn't seem to cover well. Have been using Oscar blandi root cover for years and I guess they don't make it anymore. Need to find something else, but am returning this.

              Love this product! It's easy to apply, you can brush through it and it lasts a couple of days if I don't wash my hair. it's perfect for the last two weeks before my next regular coloring when my gray roots are starting to show against my dark hair.

                    I don't know what I would do without it. It's great for those in between salon visits. In the past, I had to go every 4 weeks for salon color, but now with this product I can go 6-12 weeks.
