Finally I plucked up the courage to add a little a lot of pink to my hair. Just for the weekend! A little flirty colour to mix things up a little before returning to little old me. That’s the magic of chalk, it washes right out! For me, my hair is just as much a part of my outfit as my clothes.

That’s what is great about chalk and toners. If you are feeling a little bored, a little restless but don’t fancy changing the colour permanently, this is a great option. I often have moments when I feel like being a little adventurous, chalk allows you to have some fun by changing the tone temporarily! Chalk and hair toners aren’t new news however since posting pictures on my Instagram feed when I used the pink color bug, I have been asked how I changed the colour so I thought I would share my secrets!

Whether you are going for a full-blown pink makeover or a hint of blue, or even just a whisper of colour, chalk can transform your look within minutes. I thought I would share with you my tips for colouring hair with chalk. A little something for the weekend. Do let me know if you try it.

Here are my top tips…

  • Beware of the space around you as the chalk powder does attach itself to the carpet!
  • The chalk will sit well on both freshly washed and dirty hair
  • If the chalk isn’t sticking then add a spray or a styling product, this will add to the intensity of the colour
  • When you add just a teeny tiny bit of these colors, they fade out very quickly when you wash your hair so do add layers for the brighter tones
  • If you are hoping to just kiss the hair with colour then brush it out as you apply
  • It will rub off on to your clothes so do bear that in mind when choosing your outfit
  • Don’t over use, chalk does leave your hair feeling dry therefore using a good conditioning treatment once removed is important

Have you ever used chalk in your hair? They’re so much fun. Perfect for if you have a little one too as they can join in! Do share your secrets or what colours you have used. I fancy a lavender or peach next time.
