Madison Reed Root Touch Up

We’re all about embracing our natural hair color, but grays or growing-in roots aren’t for everyone. You don’t have to resort to a full-on dye job though—this unique, brush-on powder instantly conceals roots while sealing in the rest of your hair’s vibrant hue. Enriched with a color-protective blend of keratin, argan oil, and ginseng root, it consists of micro-milled pigments that ensure natural-looking dimension and total coverage that won’t streak or stray until your next shampoo. Plus, no drying time required.

Awesome

I see this is new to Birchbox and not reviewed. I cannot recommend this enough. The powder works great. The brush keeps it from staining the part line. It even doubles as a brow powder. I use the auburn shade. I'm a redhead with henna to add oompf, so if this is similar to your color it works great.

My initial thoughts

Right now I am super excited about this product. I can't get in to my hairdresser before attending a wedding this weekend and I haven't had my hair professionally colored in over 6 months so my greys are taking over. I just tried this right out of the box. At first, I was worried that it was going on a little too light over my greys but in layering it a bit, I think this is going to do the trick. This will be great for in between salon trips but if I have an event or on camera gig to do. I am about to go work out and see if it leaves red rivers of sweat down my face. But as of right now, I am pretty happy.

Not as expected

I was really excited to get this but it was a big let down..... It is no different than to use eye shadow to do the job. This product will make your shinny dull and unhealthy. My hair is brownish back and the darkest color combination isn't really doing the job and it does come off if you put your hand on it. I will go back to the mascara type of cover up, at least it gives much better coverage.

Good product
Sampled

I got it as a sample a couple of months ago but I am too young to use it since I have no gray hair yet, that's why I gave it to my mom. My mom says it's a good product, nice coverage and works perfect like interim between her color treatments. She used red by the way. I am giving this product five stars based on my mom's experience.

It's a thing
Sampled

First off, I didn't use this myself because it was the wrong shade, and really not my thing at all. Having said that, it's a thing for some, and that's cool. My mom used it, and was ok. It blended pretty well, it just looked kind of chalky at her roots which messed up the rest of her look.

Wrong color?

Despite the product page being listed as brown, I was sent a blonde sample. This was useless to me.

The perfect root solution

Works so good, I almost didn't color my hair at all and just used this for another month.

It sometimes helps if they send you a color that actually works with your hair. I wasn't impressed with this, not sure a powder really belongs in your hair to begin with.
