Hair Chalking for Dark Hair

Hello There!

So a little while ago I wrote an article about Hair Chalking for Dark Hair for Real Beauty Spot and thought it would be nice to share the article here as well. These tips would work for anyone with darker hair colors like dark red, brown, auburn, black, etc. Hair Chalking is a great way to add some temporary color to your hair. It's also the best way to try mermaid hair tips after your hairdresser refuses to do it with permanent color for fear of damaging your hair! That really happened to me and hair chalking wasn't a thing back then so I finally get to live my dreams...Haha.


Hair Chalking DIY – How To Hair Chalk

Step 1: Choose your colors. While dark blues, greens and reds may look adorable in the pictures online, most of them don’t show up that well on dark hair so pick carefully. Go for brighter shades such as a bright teal, bright blue, yellow, or pink. Pastels look wonderful if they show up but that depends on the kind/brand of chalk you use too.
Step 2: Soak the chalk. Fill an empty pill-box, color pallet or spoons with some water and dip one end of the chalk in them. Drip a few drops of water over the top if you think the chalk isn’t soaking up the water on it’s own. This will help release the pigments.
Step 3: Soak Yourself! While the chalk(s) is/are soaking, hop into the shower and wash your hair. Use a clarifying shampoo that will remove the excess oil in your hair but skip the conditioner (that greasy stuff doesn’t let the pigments stick). Towel dry but not too much and change into an old tshirt because it may get dirty.

PS: I know it might be annoying to be led to another page for the article but I hope I've sparked your curiosity enough to make you go check it out. Real Beauty Spot, being a different website that isn't owned by me, prevents me from posting the complete article here but I'm sure you'll find it worth the trouble. 
Let me know what you think and if you've ever chalked your hair in the comments below. I would love to see pictures of your hair chalking attempts on twitter/Instagram so tag me!
