L’Oreal Root Cover Up

Loreal Root Cover 1

Thankfully, I don’t have a huge gray hair problem- yet.  I have a few areas that are starting to lose pigment, but since it’s so confined right now, I remain lazy when it comes to coloring my hair.  Much to my hairdresser’s dismay (sorry, Ashlea), I don’t get it done as much as I should!

Being so lazy, when I got the opportunity to try out a root cover spray from L’Oreal, I was pretty excited!  Then, as I remembered back to the colored hair sprays I used at Halloween, I started to worry.  Would it be messy?  Would it look natural?  Would it flake away?

L’Oreal Root Cover Up is purported to conceal gray in seconds, resulting in flawless roots.  The company claims coverage from the ammonia and peroxide free formula is seamless, lightweight, smudge-free, and has no sticky residue when dry.

As it turns out, my worries were unfounded.  The spray is a fantastic product!  L’Oreal Root Cover Up is housed in a convenient spray can with a nozzle that allows you to direct the spray to specific areas, without it getting everywhere.   You can press lightly for a little spray, or harder for more spray, so it’s easy to control.

Loreal Root Cover Before


It covers well, is easy to use, and it truly does last until I shampoo my hair again.  There was no strong odor, and I could easily comb or brush through the areas I sprayed.

Loreal Root Cover After


The only negatives are that it does leave a bit of a residue, similar to strong holding hair sprays; and there are only six shades, so there wasn’t one that was perfect for my hair.  I color my hair a deep mahogany, kind of a dark burgundy-ish brown, and the closest shade they had was dark brown.  It did the job, though, and although it wasn’t a great match, it was definitely an improvement!

Overall, L’Oreal Root Cover Up is a great product, and I’ll definitely keep using it.  Plus, the price is nice at just around $10 a can!



  1. Opps, sorry, I just realized I responded in my last comment as if you were the Reed hair color company; I forgot you were doing a review. How embarrassing. lol. Anyway, after I sent my question, I saw your review on Loreal gray hair coverage. Great info; think I will try it. Thanks so much; glad I found your site. Best wishes.

    • Lol!!! No problem- and please don’t be embarrassed, I’ve done the exact same thing… glad I’m not the only one…lol! I’ve used both the permanent and semi-permanent, so has Jerry. I have a little gray, he’s almost all gray, and the semi-permanent covers, but just looks like highlights. The permanent covers the gray on both of us- just leave it on a bit longer. 🙂
