This product was like putting shoe polish on my hair. I'll throw it away before trying it again. I've tried 6 or 7 touch-up products and I always go back to the product that is not even meant for root touch-ups -- my powdered eye shadow and brow colors. Choose the color that most closely matches your hair color. Mine is Clinique's 'Wheat'. Other brands are probably just as good, but be sure to get one that has a brush applicator, not a foam pad applicator. Brush along your hair line around your face, along your part, at your temples and a few other sections. Looks very natural and is not sticky, waxy, or gummy like so many other touch-up products. Plus no harsh chemicals. Lasts until your next shampoo.
You have to squeeze the tube really hard to get any product out and it comes out very thick and goopy only in the middle of the brush. There is no way to apply product lightly to your roots. Then the product doesn't dry all the way - it stays thick and goopy and sticky on your roots. It's also VERY blonde - too light for my medium-blonde hair color.
This is the worst root cover up ever! This goes on like glue and doesn't even cover roots. Made my hair stiff and waxy! What a waste of money. Alterna should return customers money back.
