How To Choose The Roots Color  

To make your roots blend with your blond hair blond hair naturally, certain techniques are required. Applying the dye neatly to the roots is definitely not a good method, because it will form a clear color dividing line and looks very abrupt.

All you need to do is to create a fading effect from dark to light and make your roots gradient as naturally as possible. When you apply the dye is to brush some parts longer and some shorter into the blonde, creating an irregular line.
