Are you looking to extend the life of your regrowth?

Who doesn't love that freshly coloured hair vibe?  You feel like a new woman - beautiful, confident and hot.

Fast forward four weeks and chances are your starting the 'hide the roots' game.  Maybe you change your parting or try to distract from the regrowth with cute accessories like headbands or head scarves.  Or maybe you just give in, pull your hair back in to a pony tail and there it remains until the next salon visit.

There are two types of hair colourers - those that religiously stay on top of their regrowth, having a standing appointment at the salon; and those that leave the salon with the promise of "I'll book in nearer the time".  If you're the second type, come on, 'fess up, you know you won't book in at 6 weeks, or even 8 weeks.  For whatever reason, be it time or money or other, you will push your regrowth to the max, until you absolutely have to have it coloured for fear of being mistaken for a wildling.

Check out this nifty trial product which might just be the answer to looking fab in spite of regrowth or even grey hairs!

We're putting Schwarzkopf Root Retoucher to the test.   This is perfect for covering up regrowth or those sneaky grey hairs when you need to look fabulous, fast.  It offers the ideal solution in those moments between your next salon appointment or colour treatment. 

Applying it is really easy too - simply use the ultra-precise colour applicator along the part and visible hairlines, letting it dry for 30 seconds.  Goodbye regrowth! The formula is lightweight and contains micro-fine mineral cosmetic pigments that won’t leave you with an oily touch to your hair.  And as it’s only temporary, Root Retoucher will wash out in your next shampoo.  

We're looking for reviewers to put their regrowth on the line and take this out for a spin - are you game?

If this sounds like a product you'd love to try take our super quick survey telling us what colour hair you have and what your regrowth is like! 

And why not chat to us below about all things regrowth - are you a religious touch-er-upp-er, or are you known to rock the band until it's wide enough to be consider ombre?!

My hair seems to be naturally grey and white these days. This means I am dying it on a regular basis. My hairdresser can't get over how quickly my hair grows.

I am going to have to admit that I get greys as well only a few thought would love to touch up my dark heir just a pit stop till my next appointment but don’t think I can hide it for too much longer. Never tried before so keen to give it a go.

I refuse to colour my hair as it's not all grey, not even 1/2 of my hair is grey. But then again, I have more than just a few grey hair now which looks really not great. So, am in the cross path to start or not to start. Am hoping a product like this will help so will be great if I can try it and see how long it lasts. Especially with my black hair, some hair colorant can't withstand it so am quite picky. Plus summer's coming which means my hair will grow so much faster than winter. Need some help, so please rescue me especially with my b'day coming at the end of the month, so really want to look not too shabby!

My mum needs this! She's always on a lookout for products like these for her bad grey patches

I have lot of salt & pepper hair , so I have to dye my hair quite often would be good to try something in between :)

I've coloured my hair since I was 12 (I know "so young") but it is true and I started getting grey hair when I was 14 I'm now 18 and having to constantly retouch my hair colour because the greys are just popping from left to right. My mum would love this product too she's all about things like this.

omg Im so bad with my regrowth so this would be amazing to try - been about 3 weeks since I have been to hair dressers and to be honest I will be lucky if I go back before christmas, may end up getting grumpy with the side greys and do the blonde dye again at home lol

Constantly doing root retouches. Every 2 weeks grrrr. Would love to give this a try

I have been dying my hair for over 10 years now and my grey hair ris back every 2-3 weeks so am forever doing regrowth touch ups..would love to trial this product!

OMG, this product sounds amazing.. i used to make appointments for 10 weeks for my hair colouring, i went highlighted in the end as it just lasts longer with my hair type and can get away with it longer, but now its gone down to every 7 weeks and at over $200 a time, I just can't afford this up keep at this cost, I need it to last to the 10 week mark. I would love to be considered to try this product.

As a young woman and working mama of twin boys, getting to the salon is the last thing i have on my agenda. 25 years old with as many **GLITTERS** as my mum! Not exactly something to be proud of, and a little harder to embrace than other “flaws”. This product would be a life saver! I would be super grateful to get the chance to review it and see if it really does the job!

Need to hide the grey hairs. Would love to try this for in between colours

I've been dyeing my hair chestnut brown lately and it gets quite annoying just to do the regrowth when the rest of my hair is the colour I like it,I would love to try this product,I would even use it now as I already have regrowth,fingers crossed I get picked.

I have to dye my hair every 3 weeks because of so much grey, so am always after excellent root-touch-ups! Can't wait to try this, trial or no :)

good luck -I like the brand so hopefully we both get chosen

I would love to trial this. I colour my hair every 3 weeks -I have tried WOW but that was not a viable option and made my scalp itchy . I have ready some comments in Forum about Roots and I would love to trial this.
