Facing Forward

My chalks. Yes, I will be coloring my hair with these babies soon. 
Oh yes.

Your hair? How? How long does it stay?

For straightened hair what you do is wet the hair, draw the chalk over it, and comb it out, then dry with a blowdryer, or hotcomb, iron, etc. If you don’t apply heat to your hair, just make sure you comb through after it’s dry. And be careful combing after it’s dry because chalk dust will come off it. One of the natural hair tutorials I saw used water to make a sort of paste and then applied it to the hair before styling. You can find tons of tutorials by looking up hair chalking.
I got the chalks for 5 dollars at Michael’s, and the brand name is artist’s loft. These are called soft pastels, not to be confused with oil pastels. 
Here’s a picture of a light blue one I did for you, with some uncolored hair for comparison:

You can literally do just about anything with these. It’s completely temporary, they’ll come out on their own after a few days(be careful though because the color will get on pillows), or they will wash out, though I’ve found it might take a second wash to remove any trace of the color. Great way to dye your hair fun colors, but not have to worry about actually bleaching or dying your hair, or having to be stuck with the color for a long time.

Found some chalks and colored my hair with them today. 

Where has this been all my life. 

Just discovered hair chalking. 

This is going to be my life. Looks amazing on dark hair, relatively simple, washes out easy, and you can use any color you want. Plus it’ll work amazingly for my Queen Chrysalis cosplay. :D
