I'm just in love with the hair chalking idea in general, in my much younger years I use to dye my hair a different color at least every month or so, but now I have i don't have to time or patience and not to mention it's a little costly. So I'm you can imagine how excited I was to find hair chalking!! It gives me the ability to still have fun with my hair without the expensive cost and not to mention it washes out for the moments where I have to be a "grown-up"(boo).
A lovely company, Hair Color Chalk was nice enough to send me a sample pack to try out and use for a tutorial for you guys!
So many colors to choose from!!
Up close! look at the cute little compacts they come in, easy to use and store when not in use!
Now a little about Haircolorchalk.com before I get started on the tutorial, They are the cutting edge leader in PREMIUM hair chalk, proudly made in the USA. They have great hair chalk!! so be sure to go check them out!
Now for the tutorial,
*Now this is a warning I have dark dark hair its mixture of brown and black I don't really know what's up with it I haven't dyed it in years, so the chalking will show up much brighter in lighter colored hair but it still works fine in my hair!*
- Hair chalk ( haircolorchalk.com )
- your hair :)
- Hair spray (to lock the color in place)
- I use a spray bottle of water (just to help with the color in my dark hair it isn't needed though optional)
- I also like to either go over it with a straightener or curling iron also optional
Step 1: you are going to choose a color and a section of hair, I like to choose a section slightly underneath and not a hug chunk of hair! I also pin back them upper hair I'm not chalking
Just pinned back the top with a bobby pin.
Step 2: I slightly dampen the strand of hair where I'm putting the Chalk, using the water is optional, Then take the compact of hair chalk and place it under your strand of hair and pull it down (you can go over the hair with the chalk as much or as little as you want just depends on how intense you want the color!)
I very LIGHTLY spray my hair with water
the section to color
place the compact under the hair and drag it down
rotate the hair to color all sides and repeat with as many colors as you want.
Ah I have awful nails anyone want me to review some nail care items :)
Step 3: Spray lightly with hairspray
Step 4: I set it with a flat iron or curling iron, again optional.
Lack of makeup hmmm need to do a makeup review too!
Then Done, how simple!
you can make the colors darker or lighter I went kind of medium
ignore my face and crazy fly aways
I LOVE hair chalking it let's me have fun hair without the commitment of normal dyes, and in no way is damaging to my hair, it also allows me to change up the colors as much as I want too!!
Now I've seen where people are doing this with just regular chalk, and I'm sad to say that I've tried it and in no way does it work as good as the Hair Color Chalk do the normal chalk left my hair dry and the chalk just dusted off, where as this chalk from Haircolorchalk.com doesn't, they just leave a lovey color and are so simple to use!

Thank you Hair Color Chalk!
