No, this product only deposits color. It cannot lift dark roots. It's temporary color and only permanent color can lift. That's why it's meant for gray hair.

I have black and grey roots and the blonde spray does cover up well. My only issue is the color match which isn't a perfect match. It's close enough for me to keep using because of its so quick and easy to use. I'd say try it out, you can always return it free shipping and total refund

I dont think it will do anything for you, I have the same problem; however, the product that did help me was bumble and bumble!!!! this does the job of making it look more natural. the rita hazan product was not light enough to help me, the bad thing about the bumble and bumble dry shampoo spray is that is very sticky, it will get in your face, hands and clothes so spray it, let it dry, then brush it or rub it in. I dont like the fact that my nails and face and ears get that brownish stuff on it, and the color is not going to be blonde, but it will give it a gradual look, not that shocking blonde/black look.

I do not think you will be happy working with this product if you are trying to match light blonde hair. Your roots will be lighter with this product, but will have a weird orange cast which makes the roots even more obvious.

Question
Is this product messy and how long would one can last.
I have black hair and I imagine it will take more to cover my grey - I have greys only in the top front portion of my hair - if used daily how long would once can last? The price seems steep, but if it lasts a while then it would be worth it.

Any hair product that is black seems to be messy - how is this one?

I used the light brown on my auburn hair, and it wasn't messy at all, but maybe if you have black hair it would be different, not sure. The product doesn't go anywhere you don't spray it, so it doesn't really get into the air around you like hairspray does. If you use short bursts aimed at the grays, it shouldn't get all over. As far as how much is in the bottle, I agree that the bottle is really light in weight, which makes me think there's not a lot in there, but the salesperson said that it should last for a while, judging by the turnover on the testers in the store. I've used mine about 10 times and it seems like there's still more in there. I'm actually counting, just to see. Hope this helps!

These sprays are only really effective for root grow out or spot touch up. It won't leave your hair soft or shiny...just covers roots. With that said, if you only have a spot in front to touch up it probably should work just fine for "in between" salon times.

won't last long for sure because it is very messy and if you don't aim absolutely right, you get the color anywhere else except on the roots.

you dont have to wash your hair, the product lasts for a few days if your hair doesnt get too oily. I mixed it with the bumble and bumble product and normally i have to wash my hair everyday without any product i have a greasy scalp, but with the two combinations, i would go a whole week and my hair looked great---have to style it everyday, but this is the first time ever!

My colorist applies my color without removing this temporary powder. That having been said, I was not happy with the results the last time she did this...it just seemed as though the color did not penetrate as well on the roots. Of course, it may have been my fault for letting the roots grow out an extra week.

Probably not because I use the blonde spray on my light blonde hair and the color blends very nicely - probably would be too noticable on darker hair thereby not achieving the desired color effect.

I'd recommend using this on dry hair only; as a test, though, try it on damp hair and see if, as the moisture in your hair evaporates, the color stays where you sprayed it. This is a fantastically effective product and worth the trouble to give it a test run or two under different conditions.

I apply this last thing, after gels or anything else. That way it won't smear, although it sets quickly and doesn't rub off. If you use hair oils, I'd test it first and see what works best for you, before or after the oil.

You can purchase it online here at Sephora or at any Sephora store. Beyond that, I don't know if anyone else carries it or if Rita Hazan has her own web site. If you don't want to buy it from Sephora, I guess you could Google it and see if anyone else sells it and what their price is.
