Oh my god. I freaking LOVE these hair chalks. I don't even know where to begin. I don't think I've been this excited to post up a look. This pink hair made me feel like a total badass and definitely needed some bright pink lips and a leather jacket to complete the look.
I picked these hair chalks up from The Body Shop online. They're usually £5 each, but I managed to get 35% off and free delivery using one of their promotional codes so the two chalks cost me a whopping £7.50! Absolute bargain!
The packaging has easy to read instructions and the general gist of it is pretty easy. Place a towel around your shoulders to catch any fallout... i'll be honest I didn't do that and I didn't notice any on my shoulders, but I'd recommend a towel to protect your clothes!
You place the colour pad onto your hair with your thumb underneath and slide it down your hair. brush through it and give it a spritz of good ol' hair spray to lock in the colour!
The chalks come in little plastic pots, here's what they look like out of the packaging and with their lids off so you can see their colours.
I boldly went for it when doing my hair. I did my whole hair, and worked the two chalks in to have an eclectic mix of pink, blue and lilac hues running throughout.
I found them really easy to apply, and if I felt the colour was too vibrant in one area a couple of swipes of my Tangle Teezer toned the chalk down by gently brushing it out.
With light blonde & bleached hair, it's always a worry that when you put any sort of temporary colour into your hair it's going to stick and not wash out, I can assure you that when it came to washing my hair, the Body Shop Hair Chalks washed out on the first wash. I used my regular L'Oreal shampoo, followed by my purple shampoo and Mon Platin Hair Mask and my hair was back to normal and bright blonde straight away.
So here's to the badass pink look that lasted a whopping 4 hours before I washed it out, remembering I had a few important work meetings the next day.
I even attempted an Ombre lip to go with it... not too keen on my ombre lip attempt, sometimes things don't always work and y'know it's always good to try new things. However, I'm loving the pink hair and I really like my first experiment using hair chalks.
Also... apologies for the massive amount of split ends going on in my frizzy hair... hair cut badly needed.
