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.

Wrong color?

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

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.

Not impressed

I did not order or receive this product from Birchbox, but bought it elsewhere. I was excited to try it, but unimpressed when I used it. The color matched, but I found it difficult to get the touch up color on and have it stay. It did not live up to my expectations, unfortunately.

Not a Fan

Just couldn't imagine buying this let alone using it. Would probably be helpful for someone else but not for me.

Okay, but not worth it
Sampled

This is fine if you're in a really tight pinch and just need something for a day. It seemed to take a lot to cover up greys, and since it shampoos right out, can't see this would be worth it. Mush easier and longer lasting to use a dye-based root touch up kit than a powder, with about the same amount of time and effort.

If I could give this no stars I would

So dumb. Same idea as spraying hair on bald spots on men a few years back. Sample was so disappointing to receive. I tried it, though. So I could review. I found a grey and tried to cover it. Didn't even do that but left a blotch of weird color on my scalp that my friends and I had a good laugh over. Skip this.

Just not for me
Sampled

Product did not work well for me. I have too much stubborn gray growth in my hair that this product just did not cover well or match my hair color. This product is just not right for me personally.

Root touch up

I was not crazy about this product. I prefer a spray form of root touch up. However, this product might be useful around front hairline.

Not at all a fan of this stuff. Would not recommend to a friend. Tacky, either fix it or don't. Not sure how powder is supposed to be a good substitute lol...
