See full video on how to do a root touch-up.
- Wear a button-up shirt
- Put on gloves and cape
- Start with dry, combed hair.
- Using a comb, part your hair down the middle into two sections.
- Using kitchen scales, mix 20g of colour with 20g of the developer (this is the Grey Coverage touch-up mix).
Apply colour to brush
- Scoop a small amount of colour onto the paint brush. Hold it still while using a twisting motion with the touch-up brush to transfer the colour.
- Ensure the touch-up brush is saturated with colour.
- Using the touch-up brush that is saturated with colour, start to paint the colour directly on to your regrowth – where your greys are most prominent.
Take the next section
- In small 2 cm sections parallel to your part work your way down the hairline on one side of the head.
- Be sure to completely saturate the hair with colour.
Around the ear
- Hold the pieces of hair around the ear with a small amount of tension.
- Using a twisting motion with the brush, slide the colour from where your hair starts at the root to where the grey hairs end.
Repeat on the other side
- Repeat the above steps on the other side of your head all the way down the hairline.

1. Twirl the wand in the colour 2-3 times to ensure there is plenty on the brush to apply to the hair

4. Leave colour on for up to 60 minutes
5. Try not to wash your hair 2-3 days after colouring
