My Blonde Root Touch Up Hack with Back2Blonde

Listen up blondies, this post is just for you!  I don’t really remember when I got my first hair highlight in the salon (although I do remember that it was one of those pull through the cap moments – does that even exist anymore), but my point is that there have been MANY coloring moments in my hair history. I love the look of freshly-processed blonde hair (I know it’s a weird thing to love, but I do), so most of those hair moments involved me in the bleach seat. And that means that about 6-7 weeks after that highlight job, I’ve got brutal root growth starting to appear. 

UGH, if only there were some way to remedy that little span of time between noticing your inevitable root takeover and your next salon appointment. Well guys, that’s why I’m here. I’m here to solve your first world, blonde problems because Back2Blonde has been covering up my blonde root growth for the past month leading up to my recent balayage appointment. 

Did you notice in any of my photos recently how aggressive my root growth was? Probably not, because Back2Blonde was acting as a temporary root hair color between washes. 

It comes in an aerosol can that’s super similar to dry shampoo, and for the most part, dry shampoos can lift your color slightly at the roots, but Back2Blonde is more precise in color range as it comes in three different shades to match your hair. For example, I have been using the Light Blonde option to really lift that color back to the brightest parts of my hair. If you are looking for a blonde root touch up spray, this is the one that will give you the most options for color matching!

Best of all, Back2Blonde is available for $12.99 at CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens and making it super easy to find and super friendly on your wallet!

I’ve documented a before and after in today’s post below to show you the difference that a few sprays of Back2Blonde can do if your roots are similar to my color. 

Currently, Courtney and I are experimenting with my hair and are shooting for more natural root growth using the balayge method instead of traditional foils. This past time, we did not add any toner or lowlights, so the next round of color in September will really give me more dimension around my crown. It might get tricky in the interim as we get the new, dark root growth through the transition, so I’m counting on my Back2Blonde to help me out until my next appointment!

Will keep you guys updated on the progress through photos, but I definitely wanted to give you guys the heads up on this hack for my dark roots using Back2Blonde

Also, I haven’t tested it out yet, but I’m wondering if the Dark Blonde spray might even be a good way to try out ombre’ for fall before heading to the salon. Might have to try that too!

Thank you to Back2Blonde for teaming up on today’s post and keeping my roots in check! As always, all opinions are my own.
