I’ve wanted to try hair chalking since the first time I saw it on Pinterest. I was loving all the lavender, mint, and rainbow hues everyone was sporting and when I learned they were all easy, temporary hair colors, I barely believed it.
I’ve always loved fun hair colors. In college, I semi-permanently dyed the under layer of my hair bright pink. Or at least it was bright for a few weeks/days. I’ve always wanted to try more colors, but since I work in a professional field, it’s not something I thought I’d be able to do… until I discovered hair chalking.
I was so excited when I was able to review Kisspat hair chalks. I picked up my box from the post office, immediately put Garrett down for a nap, and got to work on my hair. My first idea was to go big. I dampened my hair with a spray bottle, flipped my hair over my head, and got to work chalking a little rainbow across my tips. Unfortunately, I didn’t go deep enough into my layers, so when I flipped my hair back over, all of the color was hidden underneath my thick hair. SO the first aspect of Kisspat hair chalk that I reviewed was how temporary it is.
I jumped in the shower and immediately a rainbow of colors splashed over my shower. It all rinsed off easily though, and within one quick wash, all of the color was out of my hair and it did not stain my shower, hands, or hair at all. Perfect.
I let my hair air dry a bit, and then started in again. The directions say you can either moisten your hair and apply to chalk, or wet the chalk and apply to dry hair. I prefer the first method, just because it’s a little less messy (overall, though, this process is a lot less messy than I expected.) Here’s my results.
The look is quite subtle, but I like it that way. I have a few other ideas in mind for how I’d like to wear hair chalk this summer – many chalked streaks throughout a braid or chalked tips with beachy waves to name a couple.
I found the hair chalking process to be very easy. A couple tips… wear a shirt you don’t mind getting dirty. Like I said, I didn’t make a mess doing my hair, but it’s possible that you could and you wouldn’t want to ruin anything. When you wet your hair… dry your hands. Much less mess that way It also helps to apply the chalk with a little bit of pressure, but not too much! I broke my blue chalk the first time I used it. It still usable though!
One box of 12 hair chalks from Kisspat is only $19.59, and they often have sales. This is a great deal, since after two attempts at chalking my hair, my chalks are barely used up at all. You could chalk your hair many, many times before you used all of your chalks up. I only wish that this set had pink. The sets of 24 and 48 do have pink though, as well as many other colors and shades. You can also buy a pack of their 6 most popular colors (which includes pink) in an extra large chalk size.
Kisspat hair colors can be purchased directly from their website.
