Revlon Root Erase Permanent Root Touch-Up has just, quickly, become my new favorite way to touch up my roots. Especially when I’m in a hurry, like this weekend! It is perfect for travel, y’all!
I received a complimentary sample to facilitate my review. All opinions are strictly my own and were formed through personal testing. Your results may vary from mine.
I used to keep my hair dyed brunette. By nature, my hair is a dark, dirty blonde but I always liked the medium brown look. As I’ve gotten older, I realized it is very hard to keep the gray maintained with darker hair. So, I began dying it blonde, instead. With the blonde, I can go a bit longer between coloring and root touch-ups without it being quite as noticeable.
I was very curious about the Revlon Root Erase because everything is contained in one can. You do still have to stir it, a little, but you don’t have to squeeze the color into the developer and shake til your arms fall off. You just push a button to dispense both into the lid, which is also a mixing bowl and then give it a stir with the applicator brush. Easy!
Then, apply it to your roots, wait 5 minutes, rinse and follow with your favorite conditioner.And, done Even easier!
Everything you need, for up to 3 applications, is included in the Revlon Root Erase kit:
- Canister of developer and hair color
- Applicator brush
- Lid for mixing
- 3 pairs of gloves

I’ve been really sick with a chest cold and now a head cold along with it for about a month. Needless to say, I haven’t felt like coloring my hair, so it had gone a bit further than usual. We have a weekend getaway coming up so I didn’t want to put it off any further. That’s where Revlon Root Erase comes in.
Since it only takes 5 – 10 minutes, I figured I could get it done quickly and easily. I wasn’t wrong!
I separated my hair and applied the color. After 5 minutes I checked to see if it had lightened enough. I have a ton of gray (and white) hair and needed to go the additional 5 minutes. 10 minutes and I was ready to add some warm water, lather and rinse. I followed up with a good conditioner, dried my hair and I was done! It was so easy and didn’t take half the day.
I really like how the color came out. I chose the Light Blonde shade and it matched perfectly! When I do root touch-ups with my regular color, it tends to over lighten the roots. This was a perfect match! It works with at home color and salon color.
Available in 13 shades
- Dark Brown
- Dark Auburn/Reddish Brown
- Medium Brown
- Medium Ash Brown
- Medium Golden Brown
- Medium Auburn/Reddish Brown
- Light Brown
- Light Golden Brown
- Dark Blonde
- Medium Blonde
- Light Blonde
I’m extremely pleased with my results and will definitely use the Revlon Root Erase each time I do my root touch-ups from now on.
Here is a video of me applying it to my hair. Please excuse the scrunched face I had through most of the video. With this head cold, my vision is a bit screwy and I had to keep squinting to see in my mirror. I’m on the mend but still having some lasting effects. Yuck.
Leave a comment below with your tips for touching up your roots at home. My number one tip is to wait 24 – 48 hours after shampooing, before you color, to allow your natural oils to protect your hair and scalp from dryness.
