How to Use Hair Color Chalks

Hi Everyone,
I am sharing this on request of many customers:
Hair chalking is an easy, quick and inexpensive way to add temporary color to your hair. You can do it yourself without making a big commitment.

David John, master stylist and colorist at the Serge Normant at John Frieda Salon in Los Angeles, offers these hair chalking tips.

Step 1: Buy your chalk

John says that all you need other than the chalk is a water bottle, protective gloves, towels and a flat iron.

Step 2: Prep your hair

Make sure to wet the hair first so the color will attach to it. However if you’re blonde, do not wet the hair before chalking unless you want the color to stay in longer.

Step 3: Add the color

Apply to the chalk to the strand of hair in a downward motion, twist the hair as you chalk. You can try for a fun ombre look, or just do a couple strands.

Step 4: Let it dry

While John says that you can blow dry your hair, others recommend air drying so that you don’t blow off the chalk.

Step 5: Set the color

Seal the color in with a flat iron or a curling iron to add waves. Apply hair spray as a final step.

Step 6: Wash it out when you are ready

The color generally will only last one shampoo; however, if the hair is more porous, such as color-treated blonde hair, it can last a couple shampoos. You can use a clarifying shampoo or dish soap to remove the color more quickly — both have more detergent. Don’t use dish soap on your whole head, just on the strands that have been colored.

TIP

If you want something brighter, you can apply white chalk first and then go over it with the color you want to make it pop.

Hair chalking don’ts

John also offers these cautions when hair chalking.

  • Don’t apply the chalk with any wax or product in your hair.
  • Don’t use water on blonde hair if you don’t want the color to last.
  • Wear protective clothing when applying and sleep on an old pillow case as the color will transfer.
  • Don’t try this near the water/beach or on a rainy day.

Hair chalking tips for your hair color

  • Blonde — Blondes can have a lot of fun with hair chalk, but they shouldn’t wet their hair first.
  • Brown — Brunettes can use any color hair chalk. With lighter brown hair, the color will be more intense.
  • Red — Redheads can chalk their hair, too. They just need to pick the right colors of chalk.
  • Black — Those women with black hair need to pick bright, vibrant shades of chalk.

Hope it was helpful!

Comments about Hair Color Chalk:

WOW! I just bought this today and am blown away! I always wanted to try a few pink highlights but would never want to wreck my professional blond highlights or spray or shampoo something in. I saw a Yahoo story on this and decided to try it. I am SO impressed. I used a latex glove and followed the instructions. I used Redken Wax Blast spray to add texture first, streaked on the color then set it with hairspray. In seconds, I had a few pink strips that looked even better than I was hoping for. I didn’t use a towel on my shoulders because my hair is above shoulder length. This products is so affordable and will likely last a long time, as you only use a little bit each time. I can’t imagine a better way to get a few pops of color that will safely wash right out.

Bottom Line …….  Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

  • Easy to use.
  • Especially when we are having our false lashes on, There are more chances of the mascara to spoil our eyelid. It works great for me when i am having my false lashes on.
  • Affordable
  • The material is also sleek. No harsh edges.
  • Not only it can help to protect your eyelid. Also it provides a nice platform so that we can apply mascara properly. Coat each lash from root to tip.
  • No clumpy look. Seperates the lashes, So this way we dont have to use some extra comb.

When in rush you may not like to use it. Since it need little time & patience :)
