Get salon-like hair color results – and spend less

At the moment, for many, spiraling prices mean making choices. At L’Oréal Paris, we want to make hair color accessible for all and give you amazing results without all the expense that comes with a trip to the salon. To keep your hair looking its best on a tighter budget, we’ve come up with some hair color tips to inspire you. By spacing out (or eliminating) often expensive hairdresser appointments and opting for a DIY approach, you can achieve salon-like results at home without stretching your budget - whether you’re looking for a sleek glossy texture, rich uniform color or a subtle ombre effect.

Cover your roots with Magic Retouch

Spacing out hairdresser appointments is the great way to keep a hold on your hair color budget. However, if you color your hair, new roots or grey regrowth will quickly begin to appear. So, instead of heading straight to the salon, try using a root concealer like Magic Retouch to cover grey or darker regrowth. Available in different shades and formats, Magic Touch root concealers match and blend with leading shades and are compatible with salon color – perfect for a budget-friendly top-up. Simply pick the one that suits you and your routine.

For instant, easy touch-ups on the go, our spray format is ultra-practical with rich color pigments that last until the next shampoo. Alternatively, you could opt for a precision brush that targets even the most stubborn scattered grey hair. For a longer lasting solution, our permanent root concealers offer up to 4 weeks of color with both a brush and precision applicator included.
