Root Touch Up at Sephora

Probably the question that I get here most often on the blog is – “what’s your hair color?”

I have done my own hair color for years. I do a dark auburn, reddish-brown color all over so it’s easy to get done. I mean, why pay upwards of $60 to color your hair when you can do it yourself for so much less?

The problem with doing it myself was that I never could find the exact color that I liked. I would always have to mix a really dark but vibrant red with the deepest brown I could find. That was until recently, of course!

A year or so ago I started using Madison Reed for my hair color in Trieste Red. I love it! It’s dark like I like it but the red still shines through. It’s perfect.  trieste hair color by madison reed

The problem with any kind of red hair color is a couple things. First of all, it can get dull more easily than other colors. I’ve already got that problem solved by using the hair gloss (which is uh-MAZE-ing). The other issue with red hair can be the roots. My hair is naturally dark but it’s not naturally red. So when the roots start to grow out, it’s noticeable.

Madison Reed has got me covered again. You guys, they have a product called ‘Root Touch Up.’ It’s amazing, it’s like makeup for your roots. It’s a powder in a compact that covers up your roots & even your grays! It washes out with any shampoo and is perfect for when you’re in between colors.

I love so much about Madison Reed — the way you can order your hair color to deliver on your schedule, the gloss that makes your hair so vibrant and silky, and the healthy ingredients they have in their products. But something new that’s fun is that this root touch up is actually being carried in Sephora!

In stores they will have four colors — Dark Brown, Medium Brown, Light Golden Brown, and Auburn Red. The complete line, including Black, Light Brown, and Light Blonde, is available online at

As you can see, the root touch up comes in a thin compact and nice little bag so you can even slip it in your purse for touch ups on-the-go! I actually don’t have any gray yet, but I definitely use it to touch up my color!

And yes, I have three. Well, one is my momma’s, she uses it to cover grays in between hair coloring. She uses Madison Reed hair color in Napoli Brown and her root touch up color is Terra – Medium Brown. In my next post I am going to show you how we used it on her hair and how the Auburn Red works on my hair.
