Temporarily Hide Your Grey Hair With L’Oréal Root Cover Up Spray #Review

*Disclosure: I received this product free for testing purposes. All opinions are my own!

I have been asked by Influenster to try this great product, L’Oréal Root Cover Up spray. I heard about this product before, and when I received the email asking me if I wanted to try this in exchange for my honest review, I accepted right away!

A little bit about L’Oréal Root Cover Up spray

I received the package at my door, and the bottle was in the box shown in the picture above, along with an explicative card. I couldn’t try it right away because I just got my hair colored, so I didn’t have any grey roots showing. I had no choice but to wait a few weeks and try it when my grey roots would start to show.

First of all, I want to talk a little bit about the product. It’s an ammonia-free, peroxide-free as well as a no synthetic dyes concealer spray. It washes off after one shampoo and it provides up to 40 applications.

On the L’Oréal website, they claim that it leaves no sticky residue, it’s supposed to be very lightweight and to dry instantly. So far, everything that I read about the spray on the website is true. The smell is also mild and very pleasant.

My first attempt at trying L’Oréal Root Cover Up spray

The instructions are written directly on the bottle and very well explained. There are even little drawings showing how to apply the spray. I thought this was an excellent idea since lots of people understand better with visual explanations.

All you have to do is shake the can; then you hold it 10 to 15cm away from your hair, and spray away! The fact that the can has a little nozzle makes applying the concealer really easily. Unfortunately, I didn’t apply enough, and there were some spots that the grey was still showing. Here’s a picture of the before and after.

Before and after - first attempt

On the picture on the right, you can clearly see that there is still some grey hair at the back of my head. But I was scheduled for my hair color appointment a few days after that, so I decided to leave it be and to try it again in a few weeks. However, the grey roots hidden are well covered.

My second attempt at trying L’Oréal Root Cover Up spray

I was washing my hair yesterday when I saw that my grey roots were starting to show again. It was the perfect time to try the concealer spray a second time. This time, I was less shy with the quantity. I shook the can and sprayed it quite generously. Here is the result:

RootCoverUp - second attempt

As you can see, the color is more even than the first time, and it matches perfectly my hair color. I have highlights in my hair, so it’s completely normal to see some locks of hair lighter than others.

In conclusion

To sum it all up, I am very impressed with the product. I will continue to use this concealer spray to hide my grey roots between hair color appointments. I’ve had grey hair since I was 27 years old, so hiding it has always been extremely important. I am now at 80% of grey hair and, on top of that, my hair grows really fast, so my grey hair starts to show around the 2nd week after being colored.

I used to use another product to cover my grey roots, but I can honestly say that L’Oréal Root Cover Up concealer spray is far more effective than the other product I was using. Like I said earlier, it leaves no sticky residue, it’s very lightweight and dries instantly. Another strong point is that I didn’t experience any allergic reactions.

So I recommend L’Oréal Root Cover Up concealer spray wholeheartedly for temporarily covering your grey roots. I was very satisfied!

  1. Interesting review, Nataly.

    I saw this product on another influencer site and was curious as how it worked. I remember seeing commercial of spray hair for people with thinning hair or balding and assumed it would be a similar concept.

    Does it color your scalp as well? It’s hard to tell by the pictures. Thanks for sharing this review. I guess the product is great for in between coloring.




    1. Hey Bren,

      Before trying this product, I was wondering if it would work well but I was happily surprised by it. And no, it doesn’t color the scalp. It really looks natural!

      Thanks for your comment, gf! Have a great weekend! 🙂



  2. Hi, Nataly

    Pictures speak better than words. Your hair was covered pretty well. The color matched perfectly well.

    I have the same problem with my hair. I had white hair in my late 20. Mine grow very fast too. Would like to try how it works with black hair.
    Do I need to join before to have free sample to try.?



    1. Hi Stella,

      Yes, you have to join Influenster and participate in what they call “snaps” before they offer you a product to sample. It’s the first product they offer me.

      If you decide to try L’Oréal Root Cover Up, please let me know how it turns out!

      Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend! 🙂



  3. Hey Nataly,

    I was browsing through your post and came across this one and had to read your review. I’ve seen this at the store and thought about trying it but hesitated. I like to hear what other people have to say about a product before I try it. Good thing you got yours free too! Influenster gives great stuff to try. 🙂

    Definitely going to try this – I’m not ready to go grey just yet. 😉

    Great review gf!



    1. Hey Cori,

      Just like you, I have seen this product at the store, and I hesitated to pay for a product when I didn’t know if it worked. That’s why when I saw this on Influenster, I decided to do the review. I knew that there were others who wanted to know if it really worked!

      If you decide to try it please, let me know if you like it!

      Thanks for your comment, gf!
