With salons shut, many of us have been deciding to embrace our greys and visible roots instead of attempting some dodgy home DIY colour.

But Maura Higgins is proving there is another way to cover greys, without fussing around with a box dye. The star, 30, has just seamlessly covered her roots using L'Oréal Magic Root Cover Up, £8.99 here.

  • This £4.99 mousse claims to 'wash' your hair without a drop of water – does it work?

The former Love Islander, who is looking very loved-up up as of late with fellow Islander Chris Taylor, got very real with her Instagram followers yesterday evening and posted a candid snap of her inch-long grey roots – clearly visible against her warm brunette colour.

“Fifty shades of grey,” Maura captioned the image.

She then goes on to show L'Oréal’s root concealer, calling it “a life saver”.

The Irish beauty mentions this isn’t an ad, but just that she loves the product. The effects are also clearly visible as Maura posts a very impressive after shot, which shows how well the spray covers up the greys.

It’s likely Maura picked up this handy root concealer tip from one of her celebrity hairstylists, as the product features in many professional kits.

Michelle Keegan posted a mirror selfie last year while filming for Brassic, and showed a bottle of this spray on the table in front of her.

Further afield, Eva Longoria, a fellow grey root-sufferer, has raved about this exact product in the past, saying: "I have my favourite solution – Magic Root Cover Up. This thing is awesome because it has this little nozzle that makes it really specific. Look how much grey I have and watch this…"

The Desperate Housewives star then goes on to video how quick and easy it is to hide roots.

Maura notes that she uses the shade brown, but there are eight other light to dark shades to pick from.
