thanks! I guess I just wanted to hear that someone else had done it.

Curious about the sally's beauty supply. I've never heard of it. I wonder if it is available in Canada? I will look for it.

Does it stain though?

Alternatively, what if you chose to live like a local, and found a nice salon to have it done?


Your original post said "venice and a 12 day cruise"...there's nothing in that that could make us think the trip would be 5.5 weeks, in case you were wondering why people thought your hair grew quickly!

Sorry I didn't put in all the details but I wanted the disboarders to know that I was actually taking a dcl vacation.

The don't sell the root touch up in Portugal. Not all products that are available at home will be available in Europe.

I would go to a salon, but my hair normally takes 3 hours to do at a salon. I don't know if I want to take the time to explain what I want...just to cover up my roots when I love my hair dresser at home! Plus we are a group of six and I don't want to take travel time away for me to go colour my roots.

It takes 30 minutes start to finish with this kit and I can do it in the condo.

i appreciate all the tips though

Tween doesn't stain anything I've had so far. It washes out so I reapply after washing hair. Maybe google tween and see if it is sold elsewhere. It is a miracle lol

I won't need to touch up yet on the ship, but afterwards.

I like the idea of putting it in a container.
Ahh, makes a lot more sense. I was wondering why you would need to do that on just a 12 day cruise. I think maybe if you just get a small kit, put it all in ziploc and then put it in a tupperware container, you'd probably be safe... And also, put it in your checked-in suitcase, labeled well.

If it were me (I've been coloring my hair since I was 12), I would do it the week I was leaving and then if it got too terrible, I would wear hats towards the end of the vacay...

Wrap the bottle in a wash cloth or paper towels before putting it into ziploc bags. If it does leak, you'll need something that will absorb the liquid and keep it in the bag in case the bag leaks. Good luck.

No staining with tween. Maybe google to see if in your area?

I like the cloth idea! I am taking an old towel with me to use so I can wrap that around the plastic bags as well.

All good ideas. I will also look out for tween, but my root touch ups match my hair perfectly!

That's a great idea. Who wants to fuss for 30 minutes while on vacation? I know they have hair mascara and markers here. I googled tween and it popped up on Walmart.ca http://www.walmart.ca/en/ip/roux-twe.../6000044722799 if they have it Shopper will probably have it too.
