How To Use Hair Chalk On Relaxed Hair

How To Use Hair Chalk On Relaxed Hair

Permanent color and relaxers typically don't mix but if you're looking for a quick, easy, non-damaging way to add a little temporary pizzazz to your tresses---you've gotta try hair chalk. Here are some quick tips to using it on textured or relaxed hair: 

Hair Chalk Do's:

  1. Always detangle, moisturize and seal first.
  2. Be gentle as you rub the chalk on your hair. Creamy or powdered chalks work best.
  3. Seal with a medium hold hairspray. I love a tad of Chi Enviro Flex Hold Hair Spray.

Hair Chalk Don'ts:

  1. Never apply to your roots; it will run if you sweat. Trust me on this one.
  2. Don't test drive this look while wearing an irreplaceable shirt---the chalk can be messy the first go around. 
  3. Don't skip your deep conditioning treatment with your next wash.
I really thought that I would look ratchet with my bright pink pastel ombre tips---but I kinda like it! And here's how I got that cute Romantic Low Chignon.

What color should I try next?

Besitos!

  1. *gasp* that is too cute! I have been wanting some color in my hair but shied away from dyeing it because I don't want to damage it or anything. This seems like it would be a great alternative!!!

    1. And---if you don't like it just rinse, let it dry for a few minutes and try again! I really can't wait to try it again.

    1. The pink lasted about a day---it faded pretty quickly. But the gold highlights lasted for 4 days until I washed them out.

  5. This colour is a definite hit! It looks more reddish than pink, maybe red should be the next colour you try!
