After months of missing out on root touch-up appointments, we've come to terms with looking in the mirror and seeing our real hair color stare back. Sure, compared to everything else going on in the world, visible roots are pretty low on the list of priorities. But when you're trying to maintain a sense of calm and normalcy in a world that seems to change by the minute, it's just one more thing that can make you feel upended.
Luckily, if you're not down to start coloring your hair at home, there are plenty of options that hide growing roots in a pinch if you can't snag a color appointment. We've rounded up the best root touch-up products out there — from crayons and sprays to powders and markers — ahead. They're perfect for beginners and will hold you over between appointments. Not one is over $35 — so you'll also be able to save some cash, too.
