How to address your new growth roots

After your first successful treatment, you can use the smaller focused treatments on your roots and new growth only as they come in.

Root treatments, are required based on hair growth rates and personal goals. They are generally required every 3-5 weeks for most. Some may wish to do more frequent applications to continually cover gray as it appears.

Roots/New Growth Application- Amounts required:

Under 50% gray roots- less than an inch of roots: See Half Kit Application

Over 50% gray roots- Please reach out to support for guidance 


Chemically Treated hair: If you have especially porous hair or have dyed/relaxed/permed/highlighted/bleached or chemically treated hair that still remains, please follow our Transition Tips. This is a process of applying to roots only, to ensure you get results, while protecting your processed hair to maintain healthy and nourished hair from root to tip.
