DIY: Hair Chalking 🌈


Dye your hair with chalk!: 

If you have blonde or light brown hair, you can skip steps 1-4, but if you have darker hair you may want to follow these steps if you want your chalk to appear bold and bright. However it is optional.

Step 1-4: Lightening:
Follow these steps if you have darker hair and want the chalk to be bold and bright.

you will need: 

    • SunIn spray
    • A towel
    • A hairdryer (optional)
    • Rubber gloves (optional)

1. Start by washing your hair as usual. Then do a strand test using your SunIn to make sure you get the desired effect. To do this, take a small section of hair about 1/2″ thick and separate it from the rest of your hair. Then spray the SunIn generously on the end of your hair, blending upwards to about halfway.

2. Once you have completed the strand test, dry it with a hairdryer (or let it dry in the sun) to see the effect. (You can always repeat the previous step if you want it lighter, but remember it will continue to lighten as long as it is exposed to heat).

3. If you are happy with the strand test, repeat step 1 all over the end of your hair, remember to blend upwards with your fingers to avoid any harsh lines.
4. Now finish by drying your hair all over to activate the lightening effect.

You are now ready for the chalking…check out the images below for inspiration!

Step 5: Chalking: 

you will need: 

  • Hair chalks or artist soft pastels 
  • A towel
  • A hairdryer
  • Water
  • Rubber gloves (optional, but your hands will get messy)
  • A brush or comb (optional)
  • Straighteners or a curling wand (optional)

5. Start by taking a small section of hair that you want to add colour to and wet it, either with a spray bottle or your fingers, then tightly twist it all the way down. Now, taking your chosen colour of pastel or hair chalk, begin to rub it up and down the twisted strand of wet hair. (Remember to check that you have covered all sides of the strand with the colour).  Once you are happy with the colour, dry it with a hairdryer until you can rub it with little or no colour transferring to your hands.

You can now repeat this process with any colour on whatever section of your hair you want! You can also go ahead and straighten or curl your hair, as the heat will help set the colour.
