Given the current times, we’d be more shocked than not if you didn’t have grown-out roots.
With social distancing still in effect, the majority of us still haven’t been back to the salon to get those once-commonplace touchups. Whether our grays are showing through or simply the natural hair color no one knew existed, our “true colors,” so to speak, are more prevalent than ever.
And since there’s no avoiding it, you may as well accept your new normal and acknowledge the obvious on Instagram. You can do just that by using one of the following captions for pics of your grown-out roots.
For the photo of you embracing your gray roots:
“Black and white is salt and pepper of colors, for life tastes bland without them.”
― Vikrmn, Corpkshetra
For the #TBT of you acknowledging the days when your roots were freshly colored:
“Live colorfully or dye trying.”
For when your blonde roots are showing and you’re forced to acknowledge you’re not really the hair color you’ve led on:
“My real hair color is kind of a dark blonde. Now I just have mood hair.”
For the shot of you pointing out the obvious:
“Back to my roots.”
When your grown-out roots are a clear indicator of your mood:
“Letting my hair do the talking.”
When you’re all done-up, but your roots stick out like a sore thumb:
“Stuck in a hairy situation”.
For the shot of your roots grown-out so much that they have an ombré effect—but you’re not mad at it:
“Keep in mind ladies: Ombré means shade in French, not roots in English.”
