Hi all! Last week I just happened to pop into my local Body Shop to have a look at the make-up and as soon as I stepped through the door my eyes were on these, I had seen these swatched by bloggers online and waited very
|Yes I got overexcited and swatched these on my hair a good few times before photographing!|
I tend to only colour the tips so I simply put the ends of my hair on my palm and rub the chalk on, then scrunch a little rather than brushing to make sure it is distributed and there is no excess, then simply wash my hands as the chalks can be a little messy. I think with products like this it is good to just play around a bit and find a good method for you. Sealed with hairspray these stay vibrant for 2-3 hours then fade a little by the 6 hour mark but a dull colour lasts a whole day/until the next wash which I think is very impressive for a non permanent product, let alone a chalk! (How technology has moved on; these sure last better than the spray on aerosol ones (remember those?!) and the gel ones I used to use sometimes as a kid when I wanted to attempt to recreate an Avril Lavigne style pink streak!)
So anyway here are the pink and blue swatches on my hair (please ignore how frizzy it looks!). You can see how vibrant they look, I think like the packet suggests the blue works best on darker hair but they are both lovely colours, especially for spring/summer:
Overall I think these are a really nice, fun product that allow people to easily experiment with their hair and I would definitely going to your nearest store to try them out. The three colours you can get look really nice alone or together so there are loads of looks you can create with these too. I kinda hope they bring out an autumn range with reds, oranges or maybe deep purples which is very wishful thinking I know!
Have you tried these? Thank you for reading, please leave a comment below,
