          I tried this for touch ups between professional coloring. Applicator so much easier to use than separate brush dunked into dye; no drips.

            This is my absolute go-to box color that I count on when my grays decide to show up every 2-3 weeks! (And going to the salon that often in not an option.) What I love about Root Rescue is the color is a perfect match, it leaves my hair feeling soft and shiny. Sooo easy to use and quick. I have very gray resistant hair and it covers it really well. Lasts for about 3 weeks.

              I used the light blond color and it turned out great. Its def on the warmer side so would not look good with really ashy blond is more a light natural blond. I left on 30 mins because I have some grey's and my base color is a level 6

                touched up my hair yesterday morning. Fast and not messy like a full head dye. Lots of compliments last night. Like that I can shampoo after.

                    Does dark brown work for black hair roots? Did L'oreal stop carrying soft black? Does Ulta store in Colma, (south san francisco) carry soft black or black?

                      A:

                      Hi Mary! Unfortunately, our Root Rescue in shades 3 Soft Black and 2 Natural Black have been discontinued. The Dark Brown shade may be a little too light, depending on how dark your haircolor is currently. We do still have our Root Cover Up product in a black shade. This is a temporary root cover product! We hope this helps!
