If you’ve picked up root concealer in the drugstore and then put it back down, you’re not alone. But thanks to Kardashian hair pro Justine Marjan, we now know exactly how to use the product, and we’re never turning back. Marjan shared the secret behind all those Instagram-worthy styles she creates for her celebrity clients in our “Life-Changing Tip” video series, above.

Bottom line: Root concealer makes your hair appear fuller and thicker. After you’ve finished styling your mane (click here to watch how to create the Mouse Buns seen above) apply the concealer around the hairline and the ears. Make sure to fill in any parts or separating where the scalp is exposed. The best part? The process takes less than five minutes.
