Best Root Concealer Ever!

A Quick Spray Does Away With The Grey!

(Please note – the following is NOT a paid review – it is just a Fab & Fru Find we love and wanted to share with you!) 

I’ve found it – a hair product I cannot live without.  All of you ladies out there who battle with grey roots – help is just a spray away… So, I’ve written before about my pesky grey hair.  Well, to be honest it is actually stark white hair – ALL of it.  But of course you wouldn’t know it to look at me – because I color it constantly to bring back the chestnut warmth of my youth.  And while I still love my favorite at home D.I.Y. haircolor, Naturtint, and even splurge at the salon on occasion, I found a new product which has taken first place in my heart (and on my head)!

Rita Hazan Root Concealer

As I mentioned,  my hair is 100 % grey – and it grows like a weed. I started going grey at 17 and I am 39 now – so it’s been over 20 years of dealing with this crap.  Basically, if I get my hair colored on Monday, by Friday grey roots are popping up, mocking me. Between running a business and being a mom, I just didn’t have the time or energy to keep up with weekly hair maintenance. Which led to me walking around sporting a white streak in the middle of my head most days – as you can imagine, not my best look.   And that’s when Rita walked into my life…

I admit, I was a bit skeptical when I saw the can of Rita Hazan Root Concealer sitting on the shelf.  A little can of spray paint for your roots?  It seemed to good to be true.  I’d tried other temporary covers from hair crayons to mascara wands before – and never been happy with the results.  But, catching a glimpse of my skunk like hair in the mirror, I bought it and hoped for the best.

Life Changing Product

Let me cut to the chase – this product literally changed my life.  Here’s why – now when I wake up in the morning and see grey popping up, I just lightly spray a little Root Concealer on my part, and in literally 5 seconds the grey is gone!  Granted, it’s just a temporary fix, but that’s all I need.  Plus, it is actually water resistant and stays in until shampoo’d out.  Since I don’t shampoo my hair everyday anyway, it can last for days.

    I have never been so excited to see a product (w/a trusted endorsement) EVER!!!
    My hair is a close to black as brown gets, and needless to say, they grey might as well have a spotlight on it. Plus, any help avoiding the salon every 6 Weeks, is beyond exciting. It’s $75 back in my pocket, so for that I am grateful!!

    I’m on board! I’m all about looking and remaining fab as naturally as possible. So this product is a God sent if it truly works. And from what I’ve seen fromt the info commercial…it works. I will be trying it out. The proof is in the pudding. I’ll keep you posted. You ladies are certainly on top of your game. I appreciate it. Power 2 U.

    This product sounded very intriguing but after looking at reviews on and Amazon that were not flattering, I think I’ll pass on it.

      Hi there – I read some of those bad reviews after I bought it and was pretty surprised – of course beauty products are very personal in nature but I do love this Root Concealor – it really is one of the few products I can’t live without! My white roots are covered in an instant without having to deal with hair dye constantly – victory!

  5. Avoid conditioners with sulfates and keep one
    protein based conditioner at hand whenever you experience excessive shedding, breakage and lost moisture.
    Basically the foremost vital thing with skin care products is their selection. Inlcude fish, whole grains,
    legumes, dairy products, and fresh fruits and vegetables to
    prevent wrinkles and maintain healthy skin.
