Rated 3.93 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review It is a fair value.
It does what it claims to do best - not make a mess, come off in your (or partners!) fingers, not dirty your pillows. However, I gave it a 4 star because it doesn't cover the gray easily. I have to keep applying it to really cover my roots. I like the coverage of a spray better but my scalp felt crunchy!
Most Helpful Critical Review It works but . . .
It works but it smudges off on everything and takes a lot more than I thought it would to cover the gray. If you typically put your sunglasses on top of your head when not wearing them, you might want to rethink that. The hair color will get on the bottoms of the sunglasses and leave colored rings on your face the next time you put on your sunglasses. If you don't touch your hair - or have a toddler who likes to touch everything, including your hair, especially when she realizes you don't *want* her to touch your hair - then the product will probably work fine for you. To me it also seemed messy; little flecks would fly all over when I was applying it (getting the product on the brush). It's not for me based on the above reasons, but it is a cool idea. Maybe the formula could be improved so it doesn't transfer quite so easily.

I love it. It covers all my Grey's in-between coloring. Matches and blends in with my hair perfectly

It's great for covering up my bald spots .
Not a fan

I wasn't happy with the coverage. It didn't match up with the bologna blonde as well as I hoped.

It may cover grays temporarily but it darkens your scalp at the same time. It's impossible to "paint" your gray hairs at the roots without touching your scalp.
Carolyn O from BURTCHVILLE, MI
I don't like this product at all! It comes with a very small brush. Takes FOREVER to get the powder to cover the roots. If I wanted to buy blush, I would have purchased blush, at a much cheaper cost. The only thing you could do with this is maybe fill in your eyebrows.
Powder/ root cover up

Disappointed.. won't be ordering again
Not worth it
Elizabeth I from FAIR OAKS, CA
I love their hair color, but I am throwing this away. Doesn't stick to grays and provides no coverage. Completely regret wasting money on this
Root Touch Up Works Ok
Michelle L from CHARLOTTE, NC
The powder color is a little lighter than my color treatment (medium brown) and you have to use more than I expected. It lessens the stark contrast of gray roots showing, but doesn't completely cover them.

I wasn't sure if it was going to work, but it did, beautifully. Now that I'm parting my hair in the middle it helps cover up my roots until I have enough gray to tint. So happy with this product
Ellen M from HILLIARD, OH
I've tried a lot of this type of product and this has best application and seems to last longer in my hair.

Just okay. It was not touching up my gray.
Extends time between coloring

Excellent. Keeps the roots from appearing gray between colorings
Adriana O from DENVER, CO
Doesn't cover grey roots at all. You have to use a lot of powder and it colors your scalp not your roots
Dark brown root touch up

It works nicely. Just a little hard to get the lines to look natural.
Not What I Was Looking For
Anna C from SAINT CLAIR SHORES, MI
I found that the product was a little messy to use and didn't work very well on any of my greys (I wasn't expecting full coverage, but a tint would have been nice). Likely a great product for those without grey hair or maybe more patience with application than I have.
Did not cover my grays
Liliana E from WOODSIDE, NY
You can see the black on the scalp, which makes it look dirty. It barely covered my grays, even though they were just starting to come out. Maybe it works for you lighter hair, but not for dark colors. I would appreciate a refund since it's a new product.

covers the roots between coloring

Hold my grays until I've to color again! Perfect!

Great for Hair and Eyebrows
Meter Maid from Royal Oak, Michigan
Product is easy to use, exactly as described, is a perfect match with my hair to cover roots and have started using it as part of my daily makeup routine for eyebrows. Use a base Pencil brow to outline then this to finish. It doesn't smudge or sweat off! compliments my hair color perfectly
Kathryn Y from RANCHO CUCAMONGA, CA
I love all of the products I have purchased with Madison. However the root touch up did not cover the gray between hair dye and I ended up going back to my previous product. I would not recommend it.
