touch up roots on hair with highlights

I have been getting my hair colored with highlights but it grows so fast and it is getting expensive. I use to dye my hair myself all the time and I would just do a root touch up. I have color and highlights now but would still like to just touch up the roots a little myself any suggestions.

    Just found this thread. I have been coloring at home forever and have had highlights on and off. You can still touch up at home, you just need to be really careful about just getting the new growth and not getting dye on the highlights. It helps if you can get someone to help too. :) Separate your hair into sections with claw clips or something so it's out of the way until you color that part. Just color the roots and don't pull the color thru the ends or highlights. HTH :)
