There’s nothing more frustrating than spending hours at a salon to get your hair the perfect color—only to have your roots grow in a mere week or two later. Even if you’re an expert with at-home drugstore dye kits, sometimes you simply don’t have the time to break out the plastic gloves and painstakingly apply a messy dye section by section. Luckily, there are tons of crazy-fast styling solutions that can stretch your time between salon color appointments without a dye kit. The latest ones let you just point and spray on colored dry shampoo, while others let you paint powder onto the scalp, sort of like an eyeshadow. They’re all temporary until you shampoo them out, but great for a quick fix to get you through the day or an important event.
