The product

The first sight of grey regrowth can be scary enough to get you straight on the blower booking your next hair appointment. 

But if you’d rather not hoon to the hairdresser every few weeks, we’d suggest an at-home root touch-up treatment.

Introducing: Clairol Root Touch-Up Permanent Crème, an easy to use at-home root touch-up that effortlessly covers greys and blends in with your natural hair colour. Simply swipe on the hair colour with the applicator comb and let the grey-covering formula do the rest.

Here’s what our panel of Review Crew® testers had to say about this seamless root touch-up.

The panel

Beauty Crew sent Clairol Root Touch-Up Permanent Crème to a panel of women aged 35 and older with grey roots, regrowth, and grey around the hairline.

The lowdown

Here’s what the Review Crew® loved about Clairol Root Touch-Up Permanent Crème.

It effortlessly covered greys: Thanks to the easy-to-use applicator comb, reviewers said it was a breeze covering their greys. 

The dye blended with their natural hair colour: Many of our members said they were surprised that the hair dye was undetectable and blended easily with their natural hair colour. 

Their hair felt hydrated after the treatment: A number of reviewers said their hair felt moisturised, soft and conditioned after using the hair dye. 

The verdict

“I loved that it came with a brush and a bowl. I have thin shoulder length hair so this was the perfect amount and coverage for me. I also love the idea of having that little emergency life saver stored in my bathroom ready and waiting. The product was easy to use and the results were great, it covered my pesky greys and the colour blended well with my hair tone and colour. I would highly recommend any lady to store one at home and use it in between hair salon appointments.”

“A 4 star for compact packing and ease of use. This is a handy, easy to handle little "gadget" to help me when I am too busy and unable to find time to go to the salon when my greys starts peeking. The application was smooth with the "comb" and after washing, my hair did not feel dry although there was no separate packet of conditioner inside the box. I loved that they covered most of my grey ,am sure it will cover better next time with more practice. Affordable, good value and I would recommend anyone to go stock up a few boxes.”

“I will give this product a 5 star rating. I have a lot of grey on my hairline around my face which looks terrible and makes me look older. Using this product was easy, non messy, gave me great coverage and was effective on my grey roots. It gave me a salon finish look and left my hair feeling soft and conditioned. My hair grows fast therefore I need to do root touch ups quite often and the Clairol Root Touch Up is perfect for me. I will definitely keep this handy product in my bathroom cupboard. I am happy and satisfied as it works for me.”
