Rated 3.96 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.

Spray the brush lightly with hair spray or setting spray before applying the powder. This color medium brown covers my gray roots and blends perfectly with my Aveda color level 7 dark warm blonde. I tried another brand with high ratings but could not match my color and too pigmented for me. Sprays are too messy. This is the best, it lasts a long time, and wears until you wash it out.

At first I had a hard time using this because it didn't stick to my hair, but if I dab on a little argan oil or castor oil (which is good for a dry scalp anyway) with a cotton swab (oil on one end, color on the other) the color sticks perfectly. I want the thinning spots on my scalp to blend in with the rest of my hair and the two tone color works great. I also use it on my eyebrows with a brush. I love it and will keep buying it. It lasts forever. I am 60 and my hair is thinning and turning gray. This makes growing out the gray mixed with dark roots and blonde highlights not quite so painful.
Does not cover grays well
Jenny N from HOBOKEN, NJ
I have medium brown hair with minimal grays At the crown and temples. This takes more than a few applications to cover the grays and not even covered completely. It's better than nothing, I guess. It's not returnable so I'm disappointed. I could have used dark eyeshadows for the same results.
good color match
Alison C from DENVER, CO
The product was great at covering the grays along my parting and the color was a good match, however, it was impossible to use along my hairline without coloring my forehead. I have used products in the past which have not had this issue.
Cherie G from SANTA BARBARA, CA
This is the best root cover-up I've used. It matches my hair color & covers grey so well. Very happy with the results.
Not the coverage I needed
Angela C from GLENDALE, AZ
I like that it is a natural product
Just wanted a little more coverage
LINDA T from LAUREL, MD
The color was too dark to blend with the color that I have in my hair. I think I need to use a lighter shade.
Betty C from Annapolis , MD
I couldn't figure out why everyone seemed to love this product because it did absolutely nothing for me when I applied it dry to my roots. Once I used the brush to add a touch of water to the palette (like you can do with palette eyeliner), it worked perfectly. No messy application, like with some of the sprays, and by using a touch of water, no brown dust flying everywhere either.

I tried this product and doesn't cover any grays, will need to return
Stephanie T from DIXON, IL
It's great but unfortunately I chose too dark a color. I've used this product before and will order again.
Doesn't cover as well as I had hoped
Judy S from PLEASANTON, CA
Very average, have used other powders that covered grey much better
Works best on day 2 or more hair...
Brenda H from ARGYLE, TX
Super easy to apply accurately - brush works great. I found it works best when my hair is NOTfreshly washed...coverage is better and the color "adhered" better to my roots. Although the spray on stuff I used previously (LOreal) had better coverage, I like this much better - no stiffness to my roots and it doesn't transfer to fingers or pillows! :)

This is great for a quick fix

Don't Waste Your Money
Amber F from Nashville, TN
Save your money and get L'Oreal Paris Magic Root Touch Up spray because that product actually works! I purchased this one to cover the silver roots in my part and nothing happened besides making a huge mess on my bathroom sink. I tried brushing it on for like a good five minutes and was really dressing into my part. Maybe it could be used as black eye shadow, but don't get it if you're hoping to actually cover your roots between colorings.
When I'm not yet ready to color
Janet O from SAN FRANCISCO, CA
It's a great product to use when I haven't found the time to color my hair yet. I can use this for a week until my schedule works itself out. Highly recommend.
Arlene B from VALENCIA, CA
This touch up covered perfectly. It was very easy to use, and not messy.
Constance A from ASHEVILLE, NC
Does not give the coverage I had hoped for, I have used one other route cover and it also covered thinning hair. So Far this product is not covering as well on the scalp.
No More Greys
Margaret G from ALLENTOWN, PA
This is the best product that I have used to cover my in between grays before my next Madison Reed color. I get those few stragglers that I can hide using this product.
Kathy A from PHOENIX, AZ
This is great! Not messy and beats the spray ! Looks so natural and doesn't weigh down your hair.
Cathleen B from NORTH BANGOR, NY
I used to use a cover grey that was like a lipstick for your hair. This product is better on my hair.i like it much better.brushing over the grey is easier and covers quickly, with no rubbing in the oily covergrey.
Presto. No more white hairs.
Aspasia M from NEW HYDE PARK, NY
Does not cover gray roots
Glecy T from AMERICAN CANYON, CA
