So I thought I would step into the unknown and dye my hair. I can't say its permanent though. Instead I thought I would give hair chalk a go. I bought a range on colours from Urban Outfitters, which you can get in store. (unfortunately they are sold out online).
I cannot say it was the easiest of applications to get onto my hair, there was ALOT of mess. When I say alot I really do mean it. My sink became a beautiful lilic colour, whilst the wall tiles became a wonderful speckled pattern. (I kid you not!). However after much cleaning up, I have to say I love it. This would be so perfect for festivals, to liven things up a little. Not to mention hair chalks wash out so so easily, so its perfect if you really don't want the commitment.
My top tips for putting the chalk on your hair (especially if it's long hair you have)
- Make sure your hair is wet, but not dripping wet
- Comb it through so there are no knots- Run the chalk through in sections, start with small underneath layers first
- Focus on the ends of your hair, which will give it an ombré look, if thats what you wish for.
- WEAR OLD CLOTHING
- Clean up before anyone suspects any sort of colour explosion happened in the bathroom.
I've never had a crazy colour in my hair before, and I absolutely love it, I think i'm going to experiment with some more colours as well.
If you use hair chalks, or have dyed your hair a wonderful colour, then tweet me your photos, I would love to see. @jessicalaar
