I totally thought this was going to be easy, it'd stick to my hair even more because of the coloring in it, and I'll be rainbow-fabulous in no time. I followed the directions on the box, which was simply to spray my hair with water or leave-in conditioner, then rub it on. This is what I got:
With flash, hoping it'd look a little different.
Not only can you barely see it, but within an hour, it was off my hair and dusted all over my shirt, just leaving my hair feeling gross.
I decided to watch YouTube videos and see if there was a better technique, and this chic seemed to have it down. Tried her trick of wetting your hair and the chalk, then coat the chalk on heavily, but only in one direction.
While it's clearly much more visible, within about 30 minutes it looked like this [super clumpy/flaky].
I tried to straighten it and comb it once or twice to even it out, and that just took all the color right out. AKA:
I say only for brunettes because it was definitely more bright and noticeable on my blonde streaks, so when I go lighter in the summer I will absolutely be trying again, but I think it's a lost cause for now. Hair has gone up in a bun.
The chalks I used were a Christmas gift, so I don't know if the kind/brand has anything to do with it [I'm sure some work better than others], but I'm assuming these pastels are basically the same across the board unless you pay a lot of money.
If you've ever done it on darker hair and have a different technique for me, PLEASE help a girl out!
