Chalk Sensation!

21 Dec

 I was doing my boring routinely house clean last week and I happily came across this pack of 32 hair chalks the hubby got me for Christmas last year! (I don’t know why he felt the need to buy soo many but it means more playing for me!)

I was throwing a surprise birthday party for him that evening so I decided to go crazy and try one out. I love having a fun change and hey, why not 🙂

Hair chalks are perf for a temporary bit of fun without being stuck with bright blue hair or running the risk of it going the complete wrong colour or worse… patchy! I don’t know about you guys but I’ve had my fair share of bad hair experiences when you’re 15 ish and it’s a fun Friday night activity to bleach your hair with a £5 boots own jobby! I’ve sported orange, black, patchy, stripy, the works! Also for those of you who are in school/workplaces that wouldn’t be thrilled if you turned up rocking bright pink hair then this is for you!

Anyway after a little research I have found that you can use hair chalks on any hair type and colour which is awesome! If you have darker hair dampen your hair first or what I did for a really vibrant colour was actually run the chalk under the tap then colour your hair with it, then it comes out kind of like paint. Although if you are pretty blonde like yours truly, if you do dampen your hair/the chalk first, be warned it will stain for like, 3/4 washes! But I loved it, it was fun that it gradually faded out 🙂 I found it easiest to pick out individual pieces of hair and start from the top to make sure it’s all covered, when it dries you can gently brush it so that it all blends together or just shake your head a bit so it falls nicely together. Make sure you check the back and sides with a mirror so you don’t end up like Cruella Deville! Unless that’s what you’re going for 😀

I just went for a cheeky pinky/purple all over (that’s me below in the pics with the birthday cake and with the green jumper on at the beach!) but I’ve found these amazeballs pictures below where people have done more multi coloured/ombre looks which I am absolutely loving, deffo going to try that next time! Let’s be honest, I’m not running low! If you slightly backcomb the hair where you want to blend multi colours, it will blend much easier so it’s not just one straight line. Press very lightly when blending the colours and it’ll be beaut! 

Sam got these badboys from Ebay and they were only a reasonably £6 for all of them! I know they sell them occasionally in shops such as Boots, Superdrug and Primark but good old Ebay is there for you 24/7 so I would definitely recommend these ones for value and ease!

We would love to see pictures of any creations you lovlies come up with! Send them in and hashtag #DailyRubies!
