I’ve always liked changing my hair styles, colour, length etc. Recently I’ve been inspired to go even bolder and try a more vibrant colour. On Pinterest, Instagram and real life I’ve seen girls do all sorts of different fun colours. Although I think these look fab on all these ladies I wasn’t so sure if it was for me, or at least if I could rock it everyday. However, I recently stumbled upon an article about hair chalk. Hair chalk is highly pigmented chalk that is rubbed onto your hair and lasts 1-2 washes. AH-HA! A great way to dip my toe into temporary mermaid hair! So I set out to find hair chalk, I did my research online and discovered out that Kevin Murphy (famous hair stylist extraordinaire and creator of my fave shampoo) developed his own brand of hair chalk called color.bug. I searched everywhere for the color.bug but I could not find it anywhere from BC-ALBERTA. Finally, a few weeks ago while on a shopping trip in Vancouver I wandered into Blanche MacDonald beauty school where alas they had one pink color bug left! I snatched it up and excitedly brought it home.
Before applying the color bug I watched a few YouTube tutorial videos. They all showed different techniques for chalk application. This one below is what I found worked best.
I will say it was a big of a messy experience but I loved the results in my hair! I think I’ll keep this up for fun occasions in the summer and just dip in the lake to wash it out. Would you try hair chalk?
