Most women have colored their hair at some point and we all know it is not a low maintenance habit. Investing in a headband can be a smart way to hide those pesky roots that keep coming back. Headbands provide great coverage for your hair. Maintaining your hair color is confusing and annoying. Temporary learning to properly hide your roots can save you not only money and time, but it's a quick way to look good even when your roots are peaking.

Thick headbands

Thick headbands are practical for camouflaging overgrown roots simply because they cover more hair. Thick headbands are inexpensive and come in virtually every color, size, and design. Thick headbands are very easy to wear, just put one on in the morning and you won't have to worry if other people notice your roots. Since re-coloring our hair is something we must do every 4 weeks to maintain it, thick headbands are an excellent solution if you don't have time to deal with them.

Thick headbands look great with hair up or down. If you're looking for a more carefree look, wearing your hair in a messy bun always looks great. If, for example, you're going to work and need coverage with a thick headband, you can choose to wear your hair loose in curls. Adding a little volume to your hair is a good idea to create flow and length. Mariah Carey does a good job of hiding her hair, so no one can tell that it is actually darker than her blonde hair color.

Fold into thin headbands

Thick headbands are not always appropriate for work or formal occasions. For a more adult look, you can fold into skinny or shiny headbands that still give you coverage for your roots. If you wear bright or colorful headbands, it will generally distract people from looking at your roots too closely. You can see in the image below that the blue headband effectively disguises its root color and mainly focuses on the headband itself. It's also a great way to keep your hair off your face while you work or go to the gym.

Scarf headbands

Scarf headbands are very much like thick skincare headbands, but generally have a thin, patterned material. They are fashionable and functional, for the days that you just do not want to look at your hair. Scarf headbands, when worn correctly, cover most of your hair, depending on how you put it on. This is ideal for women who don't have time to deal with their pesky roots. The scarf headbands are also great for days when you run errands, garden, or even have a day off. The scarf headbands are very versatile and are great for hiding the roots that are growing again.

Play with your hairstyle

Ideally, you should visit your hairdresser every 4-6 weeks to touch up your roots depending on how fast your hair grows. The reality is that few women really go through with this. Anything that distracts attention from your roots is ideal. Headbands are a great cover-up to hide unwanted roots. Another great tip is to play with your hairstyles. Even just changing your usual part of hair can help hide reemerging roots for a while. You could even use a hat or bobby pins to hide those roots. You can also opt for a hair color closer to your natural color so you don't have to come back as often. This puts a little less strain on your wallet.
