Extend the time between color appointments by up to 2 weeks with this long-wearing liquid color by Madison Reed. Precise sponge-tip applicator expertly camouflages fast-growing gray roots while restoring beautiful, shiny, natural-looking color at the roots. Precise sponge-tip applicator applies color exactly where you want it for goof-proof results. Best of all? Root Reboot blends seamlessly with your existing permanent color without interfering with your colorist's work-so your secret stays safe with Madison Reed.

Key Benefits:
  • 100% gray coverage
  • Works in just 10 minutes
  • Demi-permanent color fades gradually and beautifully in time for your next color
  • Lasts up to 2 weeks
  • Free of: ammonia, parabens, resorcinol, PPD, phthalates, and gluten

Root Reboot Kit includes:
  • Liquid Color (0.68 oz.)
  • Color Activator (1.0 oz.)
  • Gloves (2 pairs)
  • Cleansing Wipe (1 ct.)
  • Shampoo and Conditioner (0.5 oz. each)

Ready to retouch your roots in just 10 minutes? Apply first pair of gloves and carefully twist off lid from the small color bottle and set aside. Holding the activator tube with the silver cap pointed up, pinch the black stripe and twist off entire cap. Carefully pour entire contents of the liquid color bottle and dispose. Twist back on the cap tightly. Shake for 30 seconds. Pull off the silver cap, revealing the sponge applicator. Gently squeeze the tube while "painting" the color over your grays and roots on your hairline and part-line, from the root to the edge of your regrowth. Ensure full saturation, and minimize contact with skin. Remove gloves and let sit for 10 minutes. Apply second pair of gloves and wash hair with Color Protecting Shampoo and Conditioner (included in your kit) until water runs clear. Remove gloves, and use Cleansing Wipe to clean any excess color from skin.

Tip: If any grays appear before your next color appointment, use Madison Reed Root Touch Up powder for an instant fix.

Precautions: Everyone is different, and all permanent hair color contains ingredients which can cause an allergic reaction, which in rare cases, can be severe. Therefore, you must follow these precautions: Do not use if you have already had a reaction to a haircolor product or if you have sensitive, irritated, or damaged scalp. Conduct a skin allergy test 48 hours before each time you color (see inside box), even if you have already used coloring products before. Temporary "black henna" tattoos may increase your risk of allergy to this product. Avoid eye contact. In case of eye contact immediately flush with water. Use the gloves provided. This product is not intended to be used on children. Keep out of reach of children. In case of reaction while coloring hair, such as a rash or burning sensation on the scalp, rinse immediately and discontinue use. This product must not be used for dying eyelashes or eyebrows-to do so may cause blindness. Read and follow the enclosed instructions carefully before use.

    Comments about Madison Reed Root Reboot Kit:

    Naturally, I'm brunette but for the past year or so I have dyed my hair blond. The quality of my hair dropped by 80-90% after dying my hair so much lighter UNTIL now. I used the blond MR hair kit and dyed my hair myself to refresh a bit. I have super long hair, getting the same thing done by a professional would have cost me $400 (after blow dry, tip, etc) This product just changed my world. My hair is soft, shinny and smooth again like it was before I dyed my hair. I just ordered the shampoo and conditioner from MR. I'm so glad I found this product at ULTA. I haven't heard anyone talk about it on YouTube, Instagram or any where, which is a shame. If it wasn't for this product and it's promise through the kit I used, I would be going back to my natural- much darker hair color. I enjoy lighter hair color and am glad I can keep it longer healthier with MR products! By the way, my grays were covered beautifully, and the color match was so perfect that you cannot tell I did it myself! I must say, FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS and don't add your steps...

      I followed all the instructions, but it only covered about 25% of the grey- it was more like a tint. I can't speak to the staying power since I just used it. Disappointing

        I used this to cover my roots and it was fabulous. Please, please, please - carry this in your stores and not just on-line. Some of us are tentative in trying something we can't "see" in the store. I always struggle with naming my hair color - is it warm medium or warm dark?? This is a great product - I love that they include 2 sets of heavy duty gloves, not those thin see through things that tear at the drop of a hat, or nail, or ring.

          This product is for a temporary touch up. It says good for up to 2 weeks. My daughter helped me with it. She didnt exactly like the sponge applicator but she managed just fine. I had her do my hairline around my face and my crown and then I used the 2nd set of gloves and squeezed the dye onto my hands and then ran my fingers thru my hair like I was washing to get the ends. I waited probably 20 min and not 10 once she finished saturating the crown area. I couldnt believe the no harsh odor. Shampoo and Conditioner smell nice. I felt like I walked out of the salon. I'm buying this again.

          Comments about Madison Reed Root Reboot Kit:

          This covers and has good color - but doesn't last long enough to justify the cost or mess. It washes out in even less than the two weeks it claims to last. For the amount of trouble required, you might as well use a real dye. On the plus side, you can't screw it up too badly and if you get it in the wrong place, it won't stick around.

            This product is so great. Perfect for touching up gray roots if you don't have time to go to your stylist for a permanent touch up. I had an appointment with my stylist the day before I was supposed to attend an event. Due to childcare issues I had to cancel my hair appointment, but thankfully I had Root Reboot on hand and used it to touch up my gray roots. It is really fast and easy to use, and my gray roots were not visible at all. It lasted at least 5 shampoos. When I went to my stylist for my "real" touchup she didn't notice that I had used Root Reboot until I pointed it out to her.

              I love Madison Reed's Root Touch Up but Root Reboot doesn't last. It covered 10% of my grays and washed out quickly. I found the tube easy to use but it's not worth the the price or the promise.
