Terri Hatcher Shares the Easy Way She’s Keeping Her Grays Covered in Quarantine

The actress has been doing her own at-home dye jobs for years.


Being stuck inside all the time doesn’t mean we have to give up on our beauty routines. Sure, we can’t exactly pop over to see our hairdresser, but as Terri Hatcher proved in a recent Instagram post, it’s super easy to bring the salon treatments into your home.

The Lois & Clark actress showed off her gray roots and admitted that she was considering letting them grow out while in quarantine. “I think gray hair is so cool on lots of women,” Hatcher said. “But I don’t know if I can pull it off…” Since her natural silver hues only cover less than half her head, she decided to stick with the dye for now.

In fact, she’s been covering up her grays all on her own for years now, starting back when she was on Desperate Housewives. “I didn’t have time to go to the salon… So I would end up dying my roots at, like, midnight in my bathroom when my daughter was asleep,” Hatcher explained. Luckily, she doesn’t have to wait for her kid’s bedtime to get the job done these days. 

For this dye job, Hatcher decided to give Madison Reed products a try simply because she loves their commercials. She followed the easy instructions to comb her hair out every quarter-inch or so before applying the color to each section of her roots. Hatcher also warns that you “don’t want to be in a rush when you’re doing this.” Plus, going slow (and giving yourself a head massage near the end) helps make the whole process nice and relaxing.

Take a look the video below to see how it all turned out:

Looks great to us! Hatcher also revealed the secret weapon that saved her hair after a previous blonde ombre dye job caused her hair to thin and dry out: New Nordic’s Hair Volume supplements ($19.99, Walgreens). Yes, she has been a spokesperson for the company, but she claims she would recommend the product whether she was getting paid to or not. “I really think this has saved me,” she said, adding that several of her friends quickly agreed with her after giving it a try, too. 

And we echo Hatcher’s parting words to “stay safe, stay sane” during this strange time we’re all living in!
