More Hints for Hiding Regrowth
Next time you have a hair color service, ask your colorist to add some highlights around your face and on the crown. The mix of shades, including ligher highlights, makes gray regrowth less obvious.
Instead of a straight part, give your hair a camouflaging a zig-zag part. This not only helps to hide roots, it looks pretty cool besides.
Avoid hairstyles that pull your hair back off your face. This will reveal the line of regrowth around your hair line. Instead, style your hair so it falls around your face.
