I recently got the opportunity to try out L'Oreal Magic Retouch Instant Root Concealer Spray* in the shade dark brown. I'm a bit lazy and I have to admit I should have coloured my hair a while ago (I usually use Vidal Sassoon Salonist to colour my hair. See my review here). I have more than a few grey hairs on my parting, so this was a great opportunity to see if this kind of product works.
The actual aerosol can has a very thin nozzle which makes it very easy to apply the spray exactly where you want it. I have to admit that I thought that it would be quite messy, but other than getting a few little dots of product on my forehead and hands, which were easy to wipe off, I found this really easy to use.
The results were quite impressive as you can see for the before and after photo s below. The dark brown shade matched my hair colour really well and blended in great. It didn't leave a stain on my scalp either, which has happened with other products. It was so quick to do as well, only about 10 seconds. I can't believe how long it is since I last coloured my hair, but it was perfect for testing out this product.
You hold the can 10 cms away from your hair, which should be dry and styled and spray your roots with a light stream. Less is definitely more with this product. It gives temporary grey coverage which lasts until you shampoo your hair. I did find that when I touched my hair, even after a couple of hours that some of the product did rub off on my fingertips but other than that the product is great.

I also kept it on overnight and the colour did not mark my pillow and looked just as good in the morning as it did when I originally applied it.
L'Oreal Magic Retouch Instant Root Concealer Spray is normally £8.99, but it's currently is on offer at Superdrug for £5.99.
Overall this is a really handy product to have in my stash, especially when I don't have time to colour my hair.
