The obvious answer to this question will always be to color the roots the same color as the rest of the hair.

However, what happens if you don’t remember the exact number of the dye?

In this case:

  • If your roots are light and the rest of the hair is dark, you’ll have to apply a full color with a slight color difference from what you had before.
  • If your roots are dark and the lengths are lighter, and you had bleached previously, you’ll have to bleach your roots. However, you’ll use 20-volume peroxide because roots bleach faster.
  • Once you bleach your roots, you’ll only have to apply the hair dye to unify them with the rest.

Times flies and, many times, we don’t realize. However, there’s an infallible way for us, women, to notice: grown roots.

When the color difference between the roots and the rest of the hair is very noticeable, the time has passed, and it’s time to touch up the roots.

 

 If you always color your hair at a salon, you only have to get an appointment and surrender to your colorist.   She’ll know what special color mixture she used and will apply it again.

My first tip is to always color your hair at the same salon. If you don’t apply the same color, you won’t be able to unify the roots with the rest of your hair.

How to color light roots to unify them with dark lengths.

with foils

If you remember the color you used the last time, you’ll only have to use that same color to dye your roots. Then, the roots and lengths will be unified.

However, if you don’t remember the color, you’ll have to do full color with a slightly different shade to get unity.

 

For example:

  • If you don’t remember whether you applied dark brown 3 or brown 4, you can use either.
  • If you don’t remember if you applied light brown 5 or chocolate, you can apply chocolate for perfect coverage.
  • If you don’t remember if you applied brown 4 or light brown 5, you can apply light brown to not darken your look too much.
  • If you don’t remember whether you applied black 1 or darkest brown 2, you can use either.

 

If you remember the last color you applied, you’ll only have to color your roots to unify the color. You’ll need a box dye of the corresponding number, rattail comb, and clips.

How to apply hair dye to match your roots with the rest of the hair.

  • Comb your hair, sectioning it into 4 sections, from your forehead to your neck and from ear to ear, holding each section with a clip.
  • Mix the dye and peroxide included in the kit.
  • With your gloves on, release one of the sections, split it into three, and apply the mixture to the roots.
  • Comb the dye 1 centimeter into the dividing line between your roots and the rest of your hair to fade the dividing line and unify colors.
  • Repeat in each section and let the mix develop for 40 minutes.
  • Then, rinse with plenty of lukewarm water and apply the after color treatment included in the kit.

In this case, we must distinguisth two very different situations.

  • Whether you bleached your hair to apply extra bright or very bright tones.
  • Whether you applied the hair dye over your hair without bleaching.

Why is this difference so important?

 However, if you bleached your hair before coloring, you’ll have to bleach your roots very carefully. 

If you stain your hair with bleach, you’ll have to bleach all your hair.

 

What do you need to bleach your roots and, then, unify the color?

  • Dye kit of your hair color.
  • 20-volume peroxide
  • Bleach powder
  • Coconut oil
  • Rattail comb
  • Dye brush
  • Hair clips

 

Step-by-step:

  • Comb your hair, splitting it into 4 sections, from forehead to neck and ear to ear.
  • In a plastic container, mix the bleach powder, 20-volume peroxide, and 10 coconut oil drops.  Don’t use higher volume peroxide because your roots may end up white. 
  • With your gloves on, release one of the sections, split it into three, and apply the mixture from the roots until the color dividing line. Don’t go over that line more than half a centimeter because, otherwise, your hair will have two colors again.
  • Repeat in each section and let it develop from 10 to 20 minutes, checking the color of the roots every 5 minutes.
  • Then, rinse with plenty of lukewarm water to remove all traces of bleach.
  • It’s now time to apply dye only to your roots, as I explained before.[/su_list]

    Conclusions

    If you always touch up your roots at the salon, your best choice is to trust your stylist to match the color with the rest of your hair.

    If you touch up your roots at home and remember the color number, apply the color to your roots. If you don’t remember it, and your roots are light, apply full color with one tone difference in your hair to unify it.
