While I've been getting the occasional grey hair since I was about 14, I have really been in denial about how much grey hair I have now. I've been plucking whichever greys I see since that first one, but now it's getting too much for me, and I'm looking for other solutions, without totally changing my hair color.
I was sent three samples of Cover Your Grey Waterproof touch-up hair color - two in Dark Brown, which turned out to be a perfect match for me, and one in Black. The two Dark Brown touch-ups have two different applicators - a mascara-type wand for the Hair Color touch-up, and a doe-foot applicator for the Root touch-up.

Hair Color touch up, thinking that the mascara wand would be easy to run through my hair. As many long-time readers probably know, I have long, thick, curly hair. It turns out, it isn't easy to run *anything* through my hair. The grey hairs liked to hide under other hairs, or kink and curl in any direction they like, making it hard to capture them and run the wand thoroughly through them.

My hair was ready for a wash before I put the color on, but even so, I could tell that the texture was a little stiff where we'd applied the product. Definitely brush it through, if you can. I did end up washing my hair the next day, as I had planned. There was still a substantial amount of color in my hair after the first wash, but it was pretty much all gone after the second.
root touch-ups, but it actually worked better for my type of hair. It was easier to get more product down and not have to go over each strand several times like I had to do with the bristle wand.
For some reason, this one didn't smell as strongly, either. It lasted about as long, too. I do like that my grey hairs fall in line when there is color applied, even temporary color like this. I didn't have as many grey hairs sticking straight up out of my head!
I would think that these touch-ups would work much easier on someone with straight or short hair. Even so, for a fairly quick touch-up, this stuff worked pretty well for me. I can see myself reaching for it the day before an event. I saw that on their website, they just introduced a spray color product that I think might work even better for my hair texture!
I may have to be realistic about having more greys than I thought I did, though, and start using a permanent hair color with something like this for impromptu quick fixes.

Do you color your hair? Do you use anything for touch-ups?
