Now, the obvious thing to do here is to go and get your roots done, but seriously - new bubba's mean little time, so what's the alternative?

We were sent, completely by surprise, a batch of COLOR WOW Root Cover Up in every single shade. A simple but innovative product that's a big seller in Space NK.
It's also won 29 major beauty awards - no shiz girls!

Selling one per minute worldwide - we couldn't wait to get our grubby mitts on this product.

On initial look - I'm not mad about the name, nor the packaging,  plus the product looks simply like eyeshadow and a basic double-ended brush. I was so wrong.

Dubious, I took the product into the bathroom with my freshly highlighted hair (which still has roots!) applied - and was really impressed. The powder compound is designed to camouflage roots and grey hairs - and it naturally, and seamlessly did.

The 'eyeshadow' was actually a mineral powder which adheres to the hair without feeling sticky, oily, stiff - just really nice and light. The product is water resistant - until washed out.
Even though my hair is quite light at the moment, for a nice natural finish I used the blonde one (rather than the platinum one).

Using the small end of the brush you pull the hair taut at the roots using your free hand then daub the product onto the offending root.
If you want to extend the highlight down - you use the side of the brush or the thicker brush to root stretch it down.
It's a great on-the-go handbag must-have just to hide greys, roots - or general dirty hair. Or I guess you could experiment and add low and highlights if you felt brave enough with alternative colours!

At £28.50 - it may be a little steep - but I can see it lasting a long time - and saving ££'s on extending in between your hair colouring appointments. It's also the first product to be devised that covers dark roots and grey without a sniff of peroxide.

What do you think mums?

We have a black, a medium brown and a light brown to give away (worth £28.50 each) if you give us one comment on why this would be your ultimate mummy must have....
