bumble and bumble spray on hair powder tint to cover roots or hair Crayons

Started 1305431945.883 in Beauty Banter | Last reply 1305504878.517 by Bridgegal

I was looking online at Bumble and Bumble hair products and saw a hair spray that is tinted to cover roots in between colors. Has anyone used this? I was wondering if it looks natural and stays on well. Also, people on the boards have mentioned a hair crayon that you can use between colorings for your roots. How do you use something like this? Do you just color the crayon on your roots and does it stay on till you wash you hair? i would appreciate any help with this.

Good question!

I usually just use eye shadow. It would be nice to know about a more stable alternative..

Kindness first..

I've used B&B for years and really like it. It stays on the roots until you wash it out. You do have to be careful about not over-applying or it can make the hair dull and even hard to comb through but once you get the hang of it, it solves the root problem. You might also check Sephora and other sites as I think there are a few other companies that make similar products.

I have never had luck with a crayon type but I have also only tried inexpensive ones. I think there are some higher priced versions that others really like.

That is good to know wackers. It sounds like the Bumble and Bumble is worth trying. I was concerned that something like this might come off on things like pillowcases etc., but it sounds like it stays put till washing. I can't stand my roots showing after 3 weeks or so and then have to wait for my next color appointment to get them covered.

I have tried the Joan River hair powder, sorry i forget the name, go onto her products and you will find it there, its a powder and brush, and its not bad, and does not come off until you wash your hair. I have also tried some of the cheap hair crayons from Walgreens, they are actually ok, worth a try. Good luck.

i posted about the hair crayons and they are amazing I have used them for 15 years

I get colored every 4 weeks but my sides and top dont grab the color so with this you just wet the crayon and rub it on the roots. It washes out when you wash your hair. Sally Beauth sells it called tween time by roux for 6.00 . It lasts for ever and I would be lost without it

Fot the last 20 years I have been using Roux Tween Time Hair Color Crayon to hide grey roots. So simple, just wet the tip, and rub on where needed. One crayon lasts me for years.

THANKS! Going to try the Roux crayons from Sally's. I have to make a trip there this week.

Question: When applying the crayon to the hair at "side burn" area, how do you keep it off your skin? That's the gray I need to cover most!

Glad to see this because I was going to mention it and thought it would come off weird!{#emotions_dlg.biggrin}

I have a little gray here and there, but of course I have a section right in the front! I use Natural Instincts in Roasted Chestnut every 3 months. By the third month I notice this small section to the left/front at the forehead.

I remembered seeing Joan Rivers use a sort of powder and brush, so recently I got the idea to try this with eye shadow. I have a palette with browns that I haven't used for a long time. I have a small makeup brush which I wet lightly with water and then swirled into the brown (it is sort of a chesnut brown). Then I dab it on this one section. It works! It actually covers the area pretty well and matches my hair color. I don't do this everyday. It depends on how I style my hair. Sometimes it is more noticeable, like when I wear headbands.

The Roux crayons have been around for years, a good product. Just wet the end a little.

Hi Mitchell,

I use the Brown shade all the time. I use it to cover my bald spot. The only problem is that it only comes in limited shades. The brown is a very dark brown. I colored my hair lighter recently and now use Fullmore as there are more shades to choose from.

I have used ColorMark and loved it. Posters on this BB highly recommended it. I have very red hair, that is nearly impossible to match. They had a red to match mine as well as about 20 other colors. ColorMark is applied to the roots with a mascara type wand, then slightly combed in on the root. It is easy to apply, stays put and does not flake, or run onto the scalp. it runs about 17-19 bucks depending on the vendor. What I like is it also adds a little strength to the roots, so I can get a little volume.

What is the B&B spray called? I can't find it on their website.
