Lately I keep seeing more and more people dying their hair all crazy kinds of colors and sometimes it really does look so cool. I have to admit I’ve been picturing myself with maybe pastel pink hair in my head but I know I couldn’t go through with it. I have never ever ever ever dyed my hair in my entire life. No coloring, no highlighting. Nothing. My hair color is 100% natural and has been for the past 19 years of my life.
Still I’ve loved some of the looks I’ve seen on the internet, so when I got an email from the Body Shop (I got a customer card) that they are now offering blue and pink hair chalk (my fave colors apart from green. yaay) a while back I pretty much went there right away and bought it. Due to exams and loads and loads of uni work I haven’t had time to properly try out my hair chalk but over the last week I finally had the chance to, so here’s my review and some of the looks I created.
So this is what the hair chalk looks like. It pretty much looks like pressed powder in bright colors that comes in little round boxes. They were quite cheap and surprisingly easy to apply. But before you start coloring your hair make sure to place a towel around your neck, so the chalk doesn’t get all over your clothes. Now what you need is some kind of tissue or cotton pad. You just take a streak of your hair that you want color on and place the little hair chalk against that streak. Place the cotton pad on the other side and then just run through your hair with it. Apply it to any part of your hair that you want to apply it to and then add hairspray to set everything. Voila, you’re done. It really is that easy.
Does it last? If you set it with hairspray it does last the entire day though it starts fading eventually and once you wash your hair it’s all gone. I really like it, that it washes out so fast and easily.
Here are some looks I’ve created with it.
1. For the first look I just applied blue and pink to a few streaks of my hair and then put it all up in a bun over night. The next morning I had curly colorful hair.
2. If you don’t want it to be too extreme just put your hair up in a messy ponytail. I actually really love this because it brightens up a simple ponytail and I think this is such a cute style for summer.
3. Do a regular braid. How cute does this look with the mixed colors?
4. For this look I’ve just colored the lower half of my hair. Kinda like a dip- dye. Oh and this is my adorable dog Idgie btw.
5. I’ve already included this look in my Captain America OOTD. So for this look all I did was add some blue hair chalk to random streaks of my hair and then I put my hair into a fishtail braid. On the other picture you can see how my hair looked after I undid my fishtail braid. Excuse the quality it was dark already and I took it with my iPod and I’m pretty much not wearing any make up, so please only pay attention to the hair. :D
So these are just a few looks I’ve created with my hair chalk over the last couple of day. In general I think hair chalk is a great option if you want to color up your hair for a day in a non permanent way. I’m pretty sure I’ll be using it a lot more this summer because I think especially the pink looks really good with my blonde hair.
Have you ever tried hair chalk? What do you think of my different looks?
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
