How-To: Hair Chalking


I grew up watching Rainbow Brite in the 80s, so from a very young age, I’ve been absolutely obsessed with bright hair colors. I have dyed green stripes in my hair right now, but I’m seriously considering temporarily adding a few new colors with this hair chalking video tutorial from Kandee Johnson!

Get ready to paint the town, I mean, your hair red….green, hot pink, or any color you like. All temporary—to wash out at your next shampooing! Fun and creative, without the commitment!

I have dark hair, so the Kool-Aid dye tricks that worked for my friends didn’t work on me. Hair chalking would have been an absolute teenage dream come true!
