You know when you feel like you’ve been waiting for a product all your life? Well, *that* with the Josh Wood Blending Wand. The barrel contains a tinted liquid gel (not runny) that seeps through the brush end so that you can cover your silver and grey roots without having to book an appointment at the hairdresser. It is without a doubt going to extend the times between touch ups.
The brush is broad enough that you can get a good sweep – my instant thought was that the liquid gel would stain my scalp but it somehow manages to stay on the hair. The only place I got a little bit of stain was at the sides of my head but it wipes away leaving no trace. Ideally, however, you would use the Josh Wood Blending Wand on wet hair, the idea being that as you dry your hair, the ‘gel’ part evaporates, leaving just the pigment. On top of that, it will stay for at least a couple of washes before you need to repeat.
I’d definitely recommend this for anyone at the beginning of greys – if you have a full head of grey hair then it’s probably not going to do it for you, but for the odd pesky few, this is the answer. It’s one of the very few products I would put into a must-have category.
The Josh Wood Blending Wand is £12.50 HERE.

I bought this last week in two colours a light brown and a dark blonde. Have only used it after drying my hair and am seriously impressed with both the quality and the price. I use it just to touch up along the parting, it’s easy to apply, it doesn’t have the dry, clay claggy feeling. For me it’s a keeper – I’ve used various products like this but this is the best and if I can lengthen the time between colouring all the better 10/10!
I needed this weeks ago as with a newborn I’m struggling to get time to get my grey roots done (on very dark hair it does not look good). Looks like my saviour!
This sounds amazing! I get badly sun-bleached roots in the summer (I work outside during this season) so will have to try it. Ombréd roots isn’t a great look.
I have the Wow instant cover up block powder and brush. When I saw this wand had launched at M&S last week, I wondered how it might compare. I thought perhaps being a liquid/gel it could be more effective. Certainly it’s quite a bit cheaper. Would love to know your thoughts on how the two products rate against each other, or if anyone else has a view on that? Thanks.
Hi, I have both and much prefer the Josh Wood. The coverage is better , I only need to use it on both sides of my parting to cover up the grey in between appointments at the hairdressers and I’m really impressed at how easily it applies and doesn’t go crusty as it dries. Neither foes it feel claggy as other brands do. If it delays my sessions at the hairdressers then all the better. I only apply it to dry hair, you can apply it to wet, but my parting moves as I rough dry it. I’d say give it a go – hope this helps.
Thanks Lesley. That’s really good to know. I suspected that might be the case. I shall def be purchasing this now!
Anyone know if there is a red option available? x
I want one in red. This would solve all of my root retouching problems. I’ve used Superdrug colour effects, which is a similar concept, but this sounds much nicer.
Can anyone tell me how to use the wand-it does not come with any instructions and I cant download the video on the website…thanks
Hi.i bought this dye a few weeks ago.when I pressed the button on the side a large blob came out it turned my hair a ginger colour and my scalp red. My scalp was very irrated for day ,so I went to my hairdresser and she told me she had other customers in with the same complaint, I did try to remove the red but it was impossible. I will not be buying this dye again and I have complained.Anna
