My Cure For Dark Roots


For about 4 years now, I have highlighted my hair and then had to fight the woes of dark roots a month or two after getting my hair colored. I know every hairstylist says to touchup your color every 4-6 weeks, but I literally cross into Canada for my gal, so that isn’t exactly a viable option.

I’ve been on the hunt for a solution for dark roots for years and have tried many things. Some didn’t do anything while others did too much and looked unnatural. I found Back 2 Blonde at CVS and decided to give it a try and it was just right. It visibly lightens roots but without any hard lines or unnatural coloring. It washes out just like dry shampoo but lasts all day. I personally use the “dark blonde” color to give a bit of a balayage effect but without that growth line.

I actually used the “medium blonde” and “light blonde” bottles to test out just how blonde I’m willing to go next time I’m in my hairdressers chair. Spoiler alert: I think I want to go a bit lighter after giving it a day-long test run.

I get mine at Wallgreens, but it is also available at Rite Aid and CVS. Plus get $4 off through this Ibotta offer.

Have any of you ever tried Back 2 Blonde before? What are your thoughts?

As always, thank you for reading.
