For example, all types of hair chalk colors are amazing on blonde hair, while those with a darker hair tone are advised to give preference to brighter colors so that the coloring would really be noticeable.

There are two common types of hair chalks – hair chalk sticks that are small dry sticks in different colors available for sale individually or coming in sets, and hair chalk tints, which look like mini eye shadow palettes. When choosing a hair chalk, make sure to avoid sidewalk chalks, which come in oil-based pastel tones, and tend to stain your clothes.

Hereby we represent the common rules for applying these chalks:

• Wrap a towel or some cloth around you so that your clothes won’t get stained.

• Don’t use lots of water, as the less you use it, the more dense the color will be.

• If you have blonde hair, no need to moisten your hair at all, since it will stain.

• IF you have dark hair, you need to slightly moisten it before the hair chalking procedure.

• Make sure to wear rubber gloves.

• If the substance falls on the part of hair you didn’t want to color, then quickly wash it off with water.

• Brunettes should use red, blue and bright green tones.

• Blondes should use light pastel colors. Still, hair chalking involves experimenting and trying new effects. You can use multiple colors to create the stylish ombre effect.

And this is the step-by-step hair chalk tutorial for everyone!

Step 1: Prime the strand of the hair you want to chalk with a little hair chalk and water. Moisten the paintbrush touching the wet chalk with it to soak up water and color and start painting the strand of the hair.

Step 2: Twist that strand of the hair and rub the chalk into and around it. The more you go over the area, the more intense color you’ll get. If you want to use multiple colors at a time, start with the lightest shade.

Step 3: Wait for the hair to dry. Then, use the flat iron over each colored strand in order to fix the color. You can style your hair the way you want, having fun with braids, beachy waves or lovely buns. However, escape from brushing your hair too much, as the color will vanish soon.

How long does the Hair Chalk Dye Last? The probable answer depends on the way you care about your hair. As usual, the hair color lasts a few days. Before taking shower, brush your hair for clearing the color as much as you can. Also keep in mind that the hair chalks tend to stain bed linen, so it’s a good idea to wash off your hair before going to bed. Besides, keeping the chalk color on your hair for a longer period of time will cause harm to your strands, drying them up. One more thing, use a gentle shampoo and conditioner for dry hair when washing your strands. In addition, you can use ready-made or natural hair masks to recover your locks.
