- Roux Tween Time Hair Crayon, Auburn
Not Very Good – Difficult to Apply
Don’t waste your money. This stick doesn’t cover very well. I thought this would be a soft, creamy stick that would be easy to apply, but it is hard and difficult to work with. You need to wet it first, then it is a struggle to get the color on your hair. You need to press very hard; it hurts your hair. I’m giving it 2 stars instead of 1 because the color does get on your hair so I can’t say it doesn’t work at all. There are better products out there. Try the ones that come in a tube with a wand. There are a few different brands of the liquid type on Amazon. Buy those instead, they are all good.
Don’t hesitate to try this!
I have used everything you can imagine to cover up my increasingly salt and pepper roots. Dying my hair every two weeks is definitely not an option. My hair is dyed auburn — a medium shade. My mother, aunts and sister all used this — it’s been around for years. Compared to other products, this price is very reasonable, and it lasts for some time. The Auburn is always first to sell out at beauty supply stores, so I’m now getting it from Amazon.I’m also a fan of the much more expensive Joan Rivers product, but Roux Tween Time Hair Crayon is great in a pinch, and the price speaks for itself. Very highly recommended. Follow directions and you will not be disappointed.
Roux Tween Time Hair Crayon, Auburn
I was so delighted to find this. I’d been to the store looking for something, but couldn’t really find anything. Then I spotted this, and knew it was what I was looking for. I’ve only just used it, so don’t know how it will be long term,; however, I feel it will be just fine.
Good idea, but not for grays at temple
So I’m starting to have silver hair at my temples, which drives me crazy. They are very thin hairs. This is a giant waxy crayon that you wet and rub on the gray hairs, but for my temples that means the skin under the hairs also turns orange – a dead give-away that it’s been colored. Also it’s a light orange, so it’s not quite bright silver but it definitely doesn’t math my auburn hair. I tried rubbing it on my fingers and then just running my fingers over the hairs directly but it didn’t cover the silver at all that way. So this is not for me. Maybe it’s better for parts near the back of the head.
Won’t Buy Again!!
This product is messy – you wouldn’t think so being in a stick form and all… It also looks very fake. It has a very opaque, matte finish – kind of like shoe polish. Since my gray hairs are at my front hairline, I need something more natural looking. But I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone because of the overall poor quality.
