You may have seen this around already but I after my stylist told me about it a couple weeks ago I had to give it a try! She suggested using sidewalk chalk, which I did, at first. It was pretty hard to keep in my hair and didn't really give me the kind of pigment I wanted.
So, I went to the art supply store and picked up some soft pastel chalks. These worked like a charm! My day job is the kind where if I showed up with blue hair my boss might want to have a conversation with me. This alternative is perfect because it is pretty temporary. Although, it did take about three washes to get the red out. It lightened to a soft pink in the process. I would imagine it would be these way with any dark and vibrant colors.
If you have a dress code day job like me or just don't want to make the commitment to brightly colored hair just follow the easy instructions above and add a little color to your life! If you give it a shot I would love to see some photos:)
