Ultra Quick Fix For Gray Roots – TRUHAIR Color-n-Lift Powder Brush

Press sample

If you were to ask me about my biggest beauty woes, gray hair would be on the top of the list. Yup, I started sprouting gray hairs at the ripe old age of twenty-two and now ten years later, I’ve been blessed with so much wisdom (aka gray hair) it shows almost all over. I know, I am one lucky lady.

So, hair color has become a necessary evil kind of thing for me. I have to color even if I don’t want to. And the worst is when I am between hair color jobs and those pesky, annoying gray roots begin to show right before I am about to run out the door for a dinner or girl’s night out (even worse!). That’s when I reach out for instant root touch-up products. I have tried a lot of root concealers so far but never found something that covers up my grays almost perfectly and stays right where I apply it……until I met TRUHAIR by Chelsea Scott Color-n-Lift Powder Brush.

TRUHAIR Color-n-Lift Powder Brush

Product description

Cover up your gray roots quickly and easily with this temporary, powdered touch-up color for hair. The color is in the brush, so you can refresh the look of your hair color in a matter of minutes. Just dab and go! Toss the compact applicator in your purse or tote for touch-ups anytime—just dab and go!

– Helps lift the look of sparse hair
– Helps touch up roots in need of color
– Quick and easy to use
– No water or blow dryer needed

Ingredients: Aluminum Starch, Octenylsuccinate, Mica, Nylon-12, Silica, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Iron Oxides (CI 77491), Iron Oxides (CI 77492), Iron Oxides (CI 77499).


In addition to all the features listed above, what I really like about TRUHAIR Color-n-Lift Powder Brush is that it blends away the look of gray roots without making my hair look drab or dull or feel sticky. Just as you use a blusher brush on your face to sculpt youthful contours, this brush-on hair powder makes hair look younger instantly.

It comes in a pen-like packaging, perfect for carrying in your purse or handbag to touch up on-the-go. Just click the button at the end of the applicator to dispense powder into brush and generously apply the powder by dabbing directly to your hairline and scalp, then gently stroke the hair with fingers to blend and add a bit of lift and texture. Another thing worth a mention is that you won’t have to worry about the color dripping down on your face even when you sweat while working out because the powder is water resistant. It’s not at all messy.

TRUHAIR Color-n-Lift Powder Brush is available in 6 shades from Blonde to Auburn to Black (there’s even a shade for redheads). I tried the shade Black and it blends really well to provide natural, realistic-looking color.

Bottom Line

TRUHAIR by Chelsea Scott Color-n-Lift Powder Brush offers an instant, foolproof and portable solution for hiding gray roots and go longer between hair color sessions (and save money on monthly salon visits!)

Available at truhair.com and HSN.com for $21.50. I would actually suggest picking up the TRUHAIR by Chelsea Scott Color, Lift and Revive Brush Duo ($29.95) that includes a Color-n-Lift Powder Brush and New-Do Dry Shampoo Brush. I have tried the New-do dry shampoo (invidual price $21.50) as well and love the non-aerosol alcohol-free (and talc-free) powder formula that abosrbs excess oils and other impurities to refresh and revive limp, dirty hair in a matter of minutes.
