DIY Hair chalking tutorial

This summer, getting playful with hair colour is all the rage! From hot neon shades to delicate pastels (like we’ve written about here) everyone is onboard this trend! It is truly a great feeling experimenting with shades and trying new looks with your hair, but if you’re skeptical about hair colouring and using permanent hair colours on yourself, we just might have the perfect post for you today! While permanent colour adds a wonderful dimension to the hair, it isn’t always feasible because permanent hair colours are meant to be permanent and use products to keep them in place, an overuse of which can be damaging. If you are one to play around and experiment with different shades every other day, hair chalking is the solution for you. Today, we’ll walk you through the simple process of hair chalking and just how simply you can achieve it!

You will need:
  • ·         A spray bottle of water
  • ·         A flat hair iron
  • ·         A few shades of soft pastels that you desire

Step 1:  A pre-requisite of this tutorial is  unwashed hair on the 2nd day as, your hair at that point of time  is at the right texture.

Step 2: Brush your hair straight down your back for you to be able to get a hold of every strand of hair. Then segregate the selected strands of hair that you would like to chalk and colour. If you are trying this for the first time, try a few end strands in the sides or the bottom sections of the strands and then if required, you can add more strands later on.

Step 3: Take your selected colour of pastels and using a downward motion, gently rub it into your hair. Keep going till you reach the required state of colour that you like.

Step 4: Use the flat hair iron on a high heat setting and clamp it over the coloured potion of your strands to seal in the colour.

Step 5: If you like the turnout of the strands you have coloured, you can even add a few more to the colour and then, you are done and on your way looking colourful and summer ready!
