100 Things 2 Do This Summer:
I had heard of hair chalking before, and had even seen little compacts of it at our hair salon, but I always thought it was just regular chalk.
I (wrongly) assumed, you could break up some vibrantly coloured sidewalk chalk, maybe water it down a bit into a paste, and then apply it to your hair.
Not so my friends, not so.

The instructions say to dry the hair first, apply hairspray to protect the cuticles and then apply the chalk.
After that, if you want the colour to last a couple of days, you’ll need to flat iron the hair to “set” the colour.
Obviously if you’re a blonde, the colours will be more vibrant and will show longer.

Have a great one!
