Temporary Hair Color With Hair Chalk
A question people ask often about Hair Chalk is how long does it last? Well there’s 2 big factors that come into play 1) The actual Hair Chalk brand/product and 2) How you applied it.
Almost all Hair Chalk is the same but some do work better then others, one that I love that I’ve tried is:

The other big factor is how you’re actually applying the hair chalk. If it’s rubbing off or all over your clothes it’s either a bad product, or you’re doing it wrong.
To properly apply Hair Chalk you want to make sure to first have clean dry hair – meaning free of product – if you have hair gel in your hair or hairspray it will not work!
Then you have to lightly spray your hair with water, damp, not wet and then apply the hair chalk liberally in one motion.
Doing this the chalk will COAT the hair, so yes on lighter hair colors it will “apply” better and quicker, you can achieve the same exact effect with a darker color hair as well. As the color dries it will seep in and adhere to your hair.
Then once it’s completely dry you can flat iron or use a curler to seal in the color.
Doing this properly will give you AT LEAST a full day of bright color, then day 2 (as long as you don’t wash it) it will be less bright but still colored. After your first wash it will most likely wash out but at least some will remain for lighter color hair. Then by the second wash – it’ll be gone!
So it’s an easy way to get some awesome looking temporary colored hair without needing to commit to a color!
