                    Hi Bob! Since this isn't a dye, it does not matter if the hair is clean. However, since this product washes out with the next shampoo, it would make more sense to use it after shampooing.

                • Q:

                  I color my hair strawberry blond and I need a root touch-up to cover the gray when color starts washing out. So far, all the red root touch-ups are too dark. Suggestions?

                    A:

                    Matching red shades can be a challenge. For hair as light as your, we think the shade light/ medium blonde is the best option. It will have the gold needed to blend your roots with the red gold in the rest of the hair.

                • Q:

                  I use L'Oréal Féria Deep Burgundy Brown hair dye, its a very cherry chocolate/ violet color with red tints, what color root cover up should I use? Would red be too pigmented and fake? Would dark brown be too dark?

                    A:

                    To cover grays in the roots with the Root Cover Up we think the shade dark brown is your best option. The red shade is much lighter than the deep burgundy brown 36 and would not blend well with the rest of your hair. The dark brown is a very dark shade, but so is the shade you currently use.

                    It sounds like the Root Cover Up in the shade light to medium brown should work best for you.

                    A:

                    In the Root Cover Up the shade medium is probably your best choice. You could use the light brown and still cover the gray, but the roots may look a bit lighter than the rest of the hair.
